Fast and cool

bought it to run Cubase 8 Pro with numerous heavy VSTs like Kontakt and Omnisphere 2

Very reasonable temperatures and amazingly fast. Combined with SSDs is awesome



Bought this for my new rig. From a i5 to this, what a difference. No problems with it at all. People say it runs hot, Buy h80igt cooler. :)


Insane performance

I am coming from the old core 2 setup (e8500) and the jump is huge. Before I could not stream games at 1080p 60fps but now it's a bit pleasure and easy. No game I currently play is taxed by this cpu and video editing/converting file types happens much quicker. Temperatures are great and I can overclock the cpu if I wish (currently running 4.4ghz out of the box).
A great cpu and well worth the money.


hot chip!

Better that not 4690K but more expensive, not quite as good as a 5820K at most things but cheaper. Probably the last and best 1150 socket CPU. These are binned chips already pushed quite hard so no guarantee you'll be able to OC very far. But you probably knew all that already!
It is a hot chip, I got a h110 to go with it and even though I'm pretty much running it backwards (pull/exhaust because I like it quiet) you can tell the chip is able to put out some heat. When I put p95 on it jumps from 25C to 80C in a second flat, then it goes back down to 65C as the cooler starts cycling but you get the idea.
Very happy with it but don't skimp on the cooling, especially if you want quiet.


So fast!

Yup, it's fast! What else can I say? It runs really well in my new rig. Temperatures are reasonable. Already overclocked it up to 4.5Ghz without issues. I'm sure there's more to come.


Fast but hot

I bought this setup to create a rig that could play the latest games at top spec (until better games come out).

I am not disappointed.

The rig runs well and each section interacts with each other with little fuss. I noticed that the H80i didn't run when I initially reinstalled windows, but with a little tweaking it now runs fine.

The RAM is smooth, which coupled with the SSD's, means I have a startup of about 6 seconds (power on to windows). The only downside was that I had windows 64 bit home premium, which only saw 16 gig of the 32 bought. I had to upgrade to Pro to get it to see the full 32gb.

The only problem with the rig is the CPU. The devils canyon runs very hot. Under stress (on both prime and aida) the CPU can hit 100 degrees (Naturally I've re-set it etc, but it's a common issue). You may think that under stress shows an unreasonable load, but even converting media files gets it hitting the high 90's, so watch out.

I have the H80i water cooling block, so I dread to think what stock cooling would do...

Having said that, with proper cooling this thing flies, so you just have to be careful.

I am an avid gamer, so 10-12 hrs gaming (Alien Isolation, Saints Row etc) has not raised the temp to more that 60 (spike), with a 40-50 average.

The SSD's fly. I bought one for the C drive and the second for specific games. I can not believe I waited this long for an SSD, but my word do they shift. Very stable.
