    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.

    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.

    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.

    GOOD CPU -1 because of the price

    This CPU seemed like the best buy for me after performing some extensive research in late 2016/early 2017. At the time, Intel's main consumer line did not offer more than 4 cores/8 threads, but I felt that 6 or more cores would be important for future proofing, and I knew I wanted this CPU to last me at least a few years.

    That being said, if I had to do it again I would (and will going forward) stick to a more frequent upgrade cycle with top-end consumer products, e.g. i7-8700k and similar. This is because some of the problems I have had have been rare and hard to find support for. Intel + the mobo manufacturers spend more time, resources, and visibility in supporting the mainstream market. The customer base for these HEDT chips is smaller and so support has just been more limited overall. That's why I would recommend, and personally will be, sticking to mainstream consumer parts in the future.

    See my review of the ASRock X99E-ITX/ac mobo as well for additional details.

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

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