5 out of 5 eggsWorks wonderfully

Pros: Easy to install. Performance has been increased a lot compared to old cpu.

Cons: None that I can think of

Other Thoughts: I bought this for my kid's first build in December 2015 and now May 2016 it is doing fine. We don't overclock or anything like that and mainly use it for gaming. I plan to get this as well when I have funds to update my rig.

5 out of 5 eggsSuper powerful

Pros: -Exceptionally fast

Cons: -None, and probably none ever

Other Thoughts: If inanimate objects could do steroids, this thing wouldn't even need to. It loads everything blazingly fast. I had an i7-920 before it, and I had no idea how CPU bottlenecked I was till I bought this thing. Everything is as smooth as butter, I never stutter in games any longer, and I run multiple VM's for simulations and this thing doesn't even stop to take a breath. In addition, it's not even overclocked! If you have the purse for it, grab this thing and you won't need to upgrade for another 6-7 years.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: - Fast
- Awesome processing power

Cons: - The fan it comes with doesn't cut it, I recommend investing 30$ or so into a nicer heat sink.

5 out of 5 eggswhat a monster

Pros: 4ghz cpu that looks like you have 8 cores thanks to hyperthreading. Fast reliable my God I'm in love with this cpu

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: While installing this cpu on my motherboard I was closing and pressing down the arm I heard a crunching sound, as soon as I heard it I stopped and lifted the cpu from the motherboard and checked the cpu then the pins on the motherboard. Nothing happened at all freaked me out. I placed it back and I didn't hear a crunch anymore. Installed thermal paste and then installed my noctua nh-d15. And all was good this thing renders videos in 1080p like a call of duty quick scoper that just clutched an 8man team in search and destroy that's high on mountain dew and Doreatos!

5 out of 5 eggsSolid and stable

Pros: Able to over clock almost a full Ghz more with Asrock board and it's still stable. Sure a savvy person could get more out of it, but it works great for gaming on the latest titles.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsone of my favorite processors

Pros: -runs from 30-40 degrees Celsius liquid cooled while gaming
-runs up to 4.9ghz liquid cooled on asus z97-a mobo
-runs well with a GTX 980
-shipping was fast and came in a great condition
-comes with a heat sink and fan (only use as a back up, use a better fan and heat sink or Liquid cool)
in my opinion, it is all in all a great processor!

Cons: -runs a bit hot with fan and heat sink but is fine liquid cooled
-pricey
-heats fast without liquid cooling
-do not get the highest quality while running sli
-meant for one graphics card but can kinda handle two
still love the processor though

Other Thoughts: the processor should come with a better fan, tho I liquid cool

5 out of 5 eggsawesome

Pros: this thing rocks compared to what im used to, i just built a new rig to replace my old f x6300-HD6850 with this i7 4790k-gtx 970 and what a major difference

Cons: price is still high for being 2yrs old

Other Thoughts: intel should work on reducing pricing for this model so more people can have one

5 out of 5 eggsWorth every penny

Pros: I upgraded from amd to intel about 2 years ago. This cpu handles everything that I have thrown at it. It usually idles around 30c. My house gets super cold in the winter months. I have seen this idle around 15C in the early mornings. I have not needed to overclock too.

Cons: None atm.

Other Thoughts: I'd buy a second one.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Processor

Pros: -4.0 GHz on 4 cores
-Good integrated graphics
-All around good processor

Cons: This processor is a really good processor, but it has one flaw. I'm not sure if it's just the fact that I game a lot, or if I got a poorly ventilated, but his core runs hot for me. Now, it doesn't get hot all of the time, it mostly stays in the 50's and 60's, in Celsius, but when I play graphics demanding games, it runs in the 70's. Nonetheless, it's an awesome CPU.

Other Thoughts: I would definitely recommend this, but if you are going to use it to play graphics demanding games, then be prepared for it to run a little hot.
