    So much faster than my 5930K! Even without an overclock I saw an increase in performance! Highly recommended to anyone going to the Z370 platform that wants to for sure see 5.0GHz on all cores!

    An absolute beast! Big thanks to Intel for the sweepstakes.

    Great CPU, but runs hot so I plan on delidding it soon to lower temps and see just how far this can be OC'ed

    Basically an 8700k with a slightly higher base clock and a guaranteed OC of 5.0. If you have the money and want a good OC that guarantee is pretty nice to have. Catch it on sale and its well worth it.

    Top-binned. Auto overclock is killer.

    Plows through PUBG and RL at stock settings. That is good enough for me for a limited edition processor. I will say, when it is not delidded the temps get pretty hot. Under true 100% CPU load, under a 360 degree radiator, the temps still skyrocket the 80s and 90s, but this is with 1.424 volts. After bios update, and manual overclocking, we can achieve 5ghz with 1.28v LLC-6. Temps in low 70s.

    I love intel.

    Easy to install, just had to watch a video on YouTube to know how.

    Wonderful cpu. It performs great for any application I can find for it. It is fantastic for overclocking. My cpu has been able to overclock to 5.3 ghz. It has a pretty high price tag, but is well worth it in my opinion.

    Found a great deal ($325) at my local micro center. Super fast, and I love how it feels I own a piece of history.

    40 anniversary CPU with easy OC to 5ghz, still looking forward to delid it though. Chew through most of the benchmark really easily and I hope this will be the result when I am doing my own content creation.
