Awesome processor it has some great performance for it's price. I definitely recommend price matching this product at staples to microcenters listed price if you want to save about $70!

Amazing CPU ! Even if it's a bit old now, especially with the new Extreme CPUs from Intel right around the corner, it does the job amazingly well ! The 12 threads are not really useful in game, that's why I overclocked it. I luckily hit a stable 4.7GHz, with decent temperatures. The main reason why I got this CPU was not to have an overkill one (well, maybe a bit), but because of its number of lanes. As I wanted a SLI and a M.2 SSD, a normal desktop CPU wouln't have fit.

I went with the 5820k over the 5930k simply because there's no big difference between the two other than the clock speed. Right now it's feeling a little faster rendering videos with the extra cores. I do plan on overclocking it to maybe 4ghz? Just trying to squeeze a little bit more juice out of it.

5820K .. Well .. Honestly, not sure if I have to speak on behalf of this Chip.. It speaks Volumes on its OWN. This chip Tears through Anything you can toss at it. It has had NO Issues with any true day to day work loads. And even coming up with synthetic scenarios just to attempt to challenge it has been difficult

$400 for 6 cores, 12 threads, easy OC ability and amazing performance!? Get me one!
Oh wait, I got one.

BA little CPU. Stable OC of 4.7 ghz at 1.3 V, just been a beast. Decided I didn't need the extra 12 PCI lanes from the 5930K, and I do not regret that decision one bit. Having such an awesome overclocker didn't hurt.

Again, completely overkill for my current use but I went X99 because I got caught up in the "wow factor" and really felt like six cores was the future of gaming..... probably not. I'm probably not going to overclock it, for now.

I have enjoyed this processor very much. I was able to overclock mine to 4.6Ghz I did reach 4.7Ghz but even though it passed its stress test it had some other issue later on. I bet if I adjusted the voltages a little more I can get a stable 4.7.
Not bad considering Skylake is shooting for around 4.8Ghz from what I've seen so far.
