This CPU is awesome, it does exactly everything Ive ever wanted to do, without holding me back. 5 Stars no doubt, if you can find it as cheap as the i7-5820k, you're lucky, and would highly suggest picking it up.

Make sure you flash the BIOS of your motherboard if you're upgrading to Broadwell-E or EP.

Love it so far, running for 6+ weeks with no hiccups. A smooth overclocker that runs stable. This is the best value for the money to get into the X99/LGA 2011v3 platform.

Very good CPU. The 6 cores really make a difference with multi-threaded software and the temperature stays pretty low (although the CPU cooler must play a huge part in this). I haven't tried overclocking it but I read that you could easily reach 4GHz with minimal temp increase... That might be an option in the future.

Bad *** CPU. I got mine all the way to 4.5 ghz at 1.43 volts on a Custom Loop. Highly Recommended if you are not planning on running SLI at x16 on both lanes.

As advertised. A work horse that runs hot, takes a lot of energy. But does the job.

I used this in my first build so I don't have anything to compare it to, but it's fast and definitely gets the job done.

Sorry, I can't offer any review-like comments on OCing this thing. It has six cores, they run cool (see Corsair Link image) and my system is stable. I'll be doing some video editing in the near future and will update with an further thoughts based on how the system performs. As it stands, it's been a 5-star experience for me.

Great and inexpensive Intel Extreme processor. If you're looking at the 6700K and have $20 bucks left in your budget, go with this.
