intel i5 4690k

 

Its a 2014 chip in July (as of this review) You know what that means? Intel is about to release their new cpus. Although CPUs really dont fall in price. Be warned that the updated version of this processor will be available in the early fall. This is...

unlockable overclocking ; with a good custom liquid cooling loop in optimum conditions you can OC this thing well over 4.5ghz. That is an extra 1 ghz over stock speeds ; This is the most processor you will ever need for a gaming rig. Getting anything...

nothing that hasnt been pointed out by Jay of Jayztwocents youtube channel ; The instruction booklet says its only compatible with 1600mhz ram. I dont know if thats a typo, but its not true

Love it

 

Haven't tried overclocking yet, but with my Azza Solano 1000R case and stock cooler, I haven't seen temps go higher than 62C, even in very CPU-intensive games.

Love this CPU. Upgraded from an FX-6300 last fall and it made a huge difference. No bottlenecks in modern games unless in extremely unoptimized situations, like AC cities and GW2 zergs

No hyperthreading

Intel BX80646I54690K

 

It's no i7 so obviously no hyperthreading where it counts such as rendering, BUT, for gaming, this thing is insane. Coming from an AMD Phenom II X4 965 which I've ran into the ground since 2009 and having a GTX 970 SSC with above marginal performance...

Fast ; Good thermal with the redesign in devils canyon ; Efficient with its turbo clock without ever lagging behind the curve

Absolutely none

Refurbished PowerColer AXR7 250

 

I put this cpu under a Corsair H100i GTX with the stock TIM and installed the fans the way Corsair recommends(as intake, no push/pull). Average idle temp at stock clocks is 25c. Highest recorded temp after several hours of Dirt Rally was 42c. My...

1. Runs ridiculously cool under H100i GTX ; 2. Great performance in benchmarks/games
