Reviews

I ended up getting a slightly better-than-average chip and it overclocks really easily. With a little extra voltage, i was able to get a pretty stable 4.6 GHZ @ 1.36V but saw spikes of 92+C under AIDA64 loads.

from completed build The Global Offensive

I bought this because I wanted a system that could handle games for the next few years without a problem, and this has only been good since purchasing. It overclocks decently (i5-4690k's overclock better) and runs cool.

from completed build Storm Stryker Gaming Build

Great bang for your buck if you want to do PC gaming. Seems to handle everything thrown in its way, although I haven't attempted a lot of demanding programs at the same time yet.

from completed build Wandering Whisperer

Upgraded to Haswell at the last minute to squeeze a little more life into my build and because holiday sales at the time made the extra price negligible. Went i5 because I don't plan on doing anything but gaming on this machine. Might overclock a bit, might not – grabbed a K model just in case. Works perfectly. No complaints.

from completed build NeoBlue

I've actually never seen it at 100% usage yet, other than in stress testing. It renders quickly and all my programs are quick and responsive. I'm a bit squeamish at the idea of overclocking, so I don't know much about overclocking reliability, but OCGenie automatically set mine to 4GHz no problemo. I usually idle at 1-3% usage and it never goes over 60 or so degrees with my plain fan cooler. No problems with it at all

from completed build Gigan (first build)

Best bang for your buck at the time. I am only able to overclock to 4.3ghz sadly. I guess I just got a bad luck of the draw. (4.5ghz is the average) At 4.3ghz I get the same single thread speed as a stock 4790k. No problems, I recommend!

from completed build My Second Rig

Hasn't given me any problems and has been going strong for 2 years. Worked right out of the box with 0 hassle.

from completed build First gaming build (update)

Got this chip used on amazon purely because I couldn't pass up the price. Unfortunately I have yet to dial in a solid overclock on it (due to lack of time and experience). After installing the h100i, I ran OCCT for about 1.5 hours and temps peaked at 85 (1.248v @ 4.6ghz). Which I'm pretty happy with since with a hyper 212 evo at the same volts/speed, the temps went up to 95 the second I hit "start"

from completed build First build

Seriously, all you need in terms of a processor if you're gonna be strictly gaming; i7 is super overkill. 4690k holds up better, naturally, but for when I got it it was a great Haswell processor.

from completed build Custom Gaming MITX Build 2014

Nothing to complain about. Overclocks superbly especially with the MSI motherboards Tuning utility.
