Great CPU

Good buy, upgrade from the A8-6600k. Gaming is incomparable between the two.

utterly ridiculous!!!

Unfortunately could not buy from overclockers as it was out of stock at the time, but I usually do purchase everything from them.

Had the CPU about 4 weeks now, so i'd say the amount of burn in time in leaves me in a good position to review it.

It's insane - for a 3.5ghz CPU, with literally 3 clicks, I got this to 4.4ghz. Using the Asus z170i pro gaming and the corsair vengeance LPX 16GB DDR4 running at 2666.

Using the h100i (with one fan I may add - as one has failed on me) running what ever game, be it hardline, warcraft, diablo or black ops, the temps do not exceed 43! Idling along it sits just under or around 25! All this in the 250d.

Spectacular CPU.

  • KitGuru - Best Of 2015

    "If you are gaming on a HD monitor, then our tests gave almost exactly the same in-game performance for the 6600K at 4.5GHz as the 5960X at 4.4GHz in Grand Theft Auto 5."

  • eTeknix - Extreme Performance

    “Both of the Skylake SKU’s are excellent additions to the range and the perfect successor to the Haswell refresh processors. If you are asking yourself if it’s time to upgrade from Sandybridge and Ivy Bridge; the answer is yes!”
