This processor is the one to buy for gaming purpose. i7 is really overkill. Keep your money for GPU.
Great i5 CPU; only a little faster than the skylake 6600K but at a similar price I decided to go with the latest and greatest.
Best i5 in the market !
Felt like 7700k was an overkill for my needs. At 1440p resolution GPU is more often a bottleneck than a CPU. Runs smooth and cool, easily overclocks. What else do you need for a gaming PC? )
No problems whatsoever and it goes fast for the right price
Blazing fast, overclocks well, stays cool at 5.0Ghz.
Edit: It's purring now at a low 4.8Ghz at 1.2V. Idling at 5-6C over room temp (31C in the summer), never going over 75C (thanks Noctua). I managed to push it to 5.1Ghz, but couldn't stabilise it for 24/7 OC.
Good CPU. I realize not much has changed performance wise in Kaby-lake, but why not just buy the newest thing when its only 10 bucks more than the old one?
CPU works. Wanted to wait for Ryzen but I couldn't wait any longer. So yeah..
Easy to overclock; best value for your money, if you're looking to upgrade to Kaby lake.
Awesome even at base clock speeds, game performance is superb. Although probably not worth an upgrade if you already have a 6600k, I've heard that Kaby lake isn't a huge jump.
