Good

 

- have not OCed yet but I intend to after some more research

fast, stable, better efficiency than AMD ; unlocked ; Intel's website gives you lots of information about their product

included cooler is obviously made to be temporary

insanely fast!

 

crazy fast, stays fairly cool with evo 212 heatsink, idles 30c under heavy gaming it gets as high as 54c I've never seen it get higher than that, and my gpu being underneath it is the number one thing that makes it even get that high.. perfect for a...

an i7 4790 would be a lot nicer and somewhat more future proof, kind of wish I would've opted for the i7 after getting a taste of these new intel cpus they're very impressive for the price. you cant overclock this one, but I don't see any reason to...

It does its job

 

It overclocks well. I'm using a Cooler Master Seidon 120m and I am able to easily run it at 4.5Ghz. I'm not sure it will get much faster than that, but I haven't really tried

The stock fan. Not only does it do an inadequate job of heating, but the push design is terrible. But if you're planning on overclocking, you probably will want a different fan anyway

Good CPU

 

Good value, if you can afford another $100 for 4690k then go for it, also new 1150 CPUs coming out in summer.

At stock during Prime95 it ran about 65 degrees with H80i. At 1.1 volts I have a stable OC of 4.0ghz and 77 degrees. Good CPU but was hoping for higher clocks. Good value, I am satisfied

Didn't win the silicon lottery, can't push it past 1.1 volts without unsafe temps

Best overall CPU on the market

 

Fast, runs very cool, crushes pretty much any modern FPS title on the market today (Last Light, The New Order, etc). Huge upgrade over my Phenom ii x4 965

More expensive then the AMD CPUs. But totally worth it
