I ended up getting a slightly better-than-average chip and it overclocks really easily. With a little extra voltage, i was able to get a pretty stable 4.6 GHZ @ 1.36V but saw spikes of 92+C under AIDA64 loads.

I bought this because I wanted a system that could handle games for the next few years without a problem, and this has only been good since purchasing. It overclocks decently (i5-4690k's overclock better) and runs cool.

Great bang for your buck if you want to do PC gaming. Seems to handle everything thrown in its way, although I haven't attempted a lot of demanding programs at the same time yet.

Upgraded to Haswell at the last minute to squeeze a little more life into my build and because holiday sales at the time made the extra price negligible. Went i5 because I don't plan on doing anything but gaming on this machine. Might overclock a bit, might not – grabbed a K model just in case. Works perfectly. No complaints.

I've actually never seen it at 100% usage yet, other than in stress testing. It renders quickly and all my programs are quick and responsive. I'm a bit squeamish at the idea of overclocking, so I don't know much about overclocking reliability, but OCGenie automatically set mine to 4GHz no problemo. I usually idle at 1-3% usage and it never goes over 60 or so degrees with my plain fan cooler. No problems with it at all

Best bang for your buck at the time. I am only able to overclock to 4.3ghz sadly. I guess I just got a bad luck of the draw. (4.5ghz is the average) At 4.3ghz I get the same single thread speed as a stock 4790k. No problems, I recommend!

Hasn't given me any problems and has been going strong for 2 years. Worked right out of the box with 0 hassle.

Got this chip used on amazon purely because I couldn't pass up the price. Unfortunately I have yet to dial in a solid overclock on it (due to lack of time and experience). After installing the h100i, I ran OCCT for about 1.5 hours and temps peaked at 85 (1.248v @ 4.6ghz). Which I'm pretty happy with since with a hyper 212 evo at the same volts/speed, the temps went up to 95 the second I hit "start"

Seriously, all you need in terms of a processor if you're gonna be strictly gaming; i7 is super overkill. 4690k holds up better, naturally, but for when I got it it was a great Haswell processor.

Nothing to complain about. Overclocks superbly especially with the MSI motherboards Tuning utility.
