The Intel® Core™ i7 6700K boasts a 4.0 GHz base frequency and 4.2 GHz turbo frequency, the processor is also built on a 14 nm process, with a 95 W maximum TDP. The chip is a Quad-Core design with 8 threads. Integrated into the processor is Intel® HD Graphics 530 which delivers mainstream-level graphics with discrete-level performance and has full support for DirectX 12 API. Intel’s 6700K is fully unlocked allowing you to tune performance and obtain higher frequencies when used with Intel 100 series chipsets. Previous generation Intel processors such as the Intel® Core™ i7-4790K processor used DDR3 memory, typically running at 1600 or 2133MHz. The Core i7 6700K have an enhanced memory controller that supports DDR4 memory, giving you a very healthy performance boost over DDR3.

Intel® Core™ i7 is a brand name applies to several families of desktop and laptops, The Core™ i7 brand targets the business and high-end consumer markets for both desktop and laptop computers, and is distinguished from the enty-level Core™ i3 and the more mainstream Core™ i5.

Intel i7 6700K.. What Can I say...

What else is there to actually say about these Intel i7 6700K CPU's.. Just Awesome investment.

Alienmoon 2017-01-18

Brilliant processor for everything!

This processor will be able to run any game for the next few years. With the overclocking capabilities being able to hit up to 4.8GHz.

You will be able to run all games on high (With a decent GPU). If you want, you could spend around £30 extra and get the I7-7700k which runs a bit faster than this.

Overall, this processor is brilliant for everything you throw at it.

Best investment ever

As a gamer, i invested in this processor to play world of warcraft legion, League of legends, h1z1 and various other games.

Max graphics and this baby handles everything without a problem. Fantastic fps, performance, loads everything within a couple of seconds. Everything a gamer needs, the price is well worth the investment, would recommend to anyone looking into an intel gaming system.

4.7ghz at 20c idle / 52 full load

Have this clocked to 4.7Ghz on an Asus Hero board. 1.344 core.
Can push to 4.8 but then vcore is at 1.4 and i'm not overly comfortable with that.
Running at 20c idel with a corsair H115i and around 52c under full load testing.
Solid overclock and a lot less tweaking needd than with my previous 3570k which was at 4.5ghz for about 3 years.

I know it's a bit of a lottery when it comes to overclocking but i'm pretty impressed.

Alex Wright 2016-11-04


Just buy it easy as that, yes it is pricey but well worth it.

Anthony young 2016-05-09

So Glad i bought this

I looked at other CPUs and the X99 board, I'm happy with this choice and have OC'd to 4.8Ghz stable which not much effort. highly recommended.

Tom C 2016-04-18


well last cpu I had was a i7 920 and that lasted since launch so lets see if this does the same :) speed ofcouse I have noticed to be a lot faster.

chris 2015-12-03


Not much to say here, I mean I am coming from a 4790k @ 4.8ghz and currently have this chip running at 4.65ghz @ 1.325v and from what I can see so far, it runs cooler yet no fps drop in games (maybe due to the faster IPC).

Yes it is a bit pricey, but extra PCI lanes and DDR4 support make this worth it.
