Powerful and reliable CPU. If you don't need to overclock and you intend to buy a GPU, there is no need to spend more on a i7.
Amazing CPU easy to force into constantly running at 3.9Ghz with Asus Z97M-Plus. And then minor overclocked base clock to 103mhz bumps it to 4.0GHz stable.
This thing is a beast. it keeps up with a 4790 with no troubles. A 4790k will understandably blow this chip away but for what i do it serves me just fine.
Does everything I want fast and smooth. Temperatures kept cool. Stream, record, play, browse, and listen to music all at the same time. No sweat.
