Excellent budget option from Intel 8/1/2020 5:19:28 PM

Pros: 4 true cores, low power consumption and heat output.

Cons: If you’re really into pushing a lot of frames I’d still recommend an i5 at least. Wish they’d unlock these.

Overall Review: I’m happy. I actually got two, one for my friend I was helping to upgrade his build and for myself. Originally I just wanted something cheap to “steam stream” in my house from my i7-8700k / 1070ti build to my bedroom TV. Of course, I haven’t been able to do the same with Origin, so quickly found out I was going to be praying for this to have some guile if it’s own rather than rely on the other PC’s power via streaming to do the work. It works okay for harder core AAA gaming. Can definitely feel some lag spikes though. But if you’re not spoiled already, on a tight budget, or have a build where heat would cause a problem with a low profile cooler or something, I’d definitely recommend it.

Great value processer. Especially in this economic crisis. 8/1/2020 8:26:56 AM

Pros: The price, shipping, and packaging. Speed is also great.

Cons: None? I mean you should know what you're paying for. Even then it performs well. It's Intel.

Overall Review: I was building a budget friendly computer for a relative who was 1. Going to be working from home 2. In need of a upgrade from their old system. The motherboard I used is as follows "ASUS PRIME H310M-E R2.0 LGA 1151" and let me tell you. I was worried I wasn't going to be able to boot as some reviews on that motherboaed claim the board needs the latest bios otherwise you have to upgrade it to use this cpu. I guess I got lucky. I popped this in there. Installed a AIO cooler (overkill I know) and boom this thing performs very well and for what it's going to be used for it's amazing! Thank you Intel and Newegg for the great price / product even in these economic times you found ways to make things affordable on a tight budget.

Great budget gaming CPU 7/20/2020 8:07:37 AM

Overall Review: My son wanted to dive into the world of PC gaming so I needed to throw together a budget PC that wouldn’t be obsolete for a while. Paired with a 1660Super GPU, this little processor works just fine running a lot of current games. I’m actually having to use Vsync on his settings because his regular 60hz monitor can’t keep up with the frame rates he’s getting from the CPU/GPU combo.
Overall I am very pleased with the processor and it should be just fine for the next few years unless games start becoming ridiculously more graphically intensive than they are currently.

Fantastic Chip! 7/17/2020 7:07:46 AM

Pros: - Fast!
- Will run anything you throw at it.

Cons: - Included stock cooler seem inadequate.
- Will run hot under heavy load with said cooler.

Overall Review: I figured I would update my review after using this chip for a couple months.

First, I do not recommend the included cooler with these 9th gen i7's. Under load the chips runs quite hot in the high 80's Celsius. Performance was good but I felt it could be better. After upgrading the cooler, the chip was running on all 8 cores at 4.7 GHz and never exceeded 50C. Extremely happy with this type of performance.

At idle, this chip sits between 24C - 26C with the upgraded cooler.

This chip does not have hyperthreading, but 8 high performance cores is more than enough power for the average user. More threads isn't always the answer.

I mainly use this machine as a gamer (cpu intensive games) and some work from home. This chip complete both of these with ease.

Good for low-to-mid range pcs! 7/11/2020 3:58:47 AM

Pros: Cpu paste is already applied
Easy-to-install fan
Optimal performance for tasks that are relatively demanding

Cons: As it is only a six core, if you are hoping to do high quality gaming or video editing I wouldn't recommend this CPU. It's processing power is good, but it's an Intel product, meaning multi-core processes have, on average, lower lower results in comparison to AMD. It isn't a bad processor, but if you are looking for something that can handle demanding processes you will save much more money if you just go for an AMD processor.

Overall Review: Don't regret my purchase, and even now after almost 2 years this cpu is still going strong. I just moved on to bigger things (for better prices) and switched to the AMD Ryzen 3900x. Also a quick tip for those looking to buy this product, this cpu hates AMD graphics cards, this was especially evident when I bought the Gigabyte (Gigabyte is hands down the best manufacturer to purchase this card from due to what they did with their version of the card) Radeon RX 5700 XT, of course this is to be expected as this is a high-end graphics card (contrary to it's medium range price) so obviously there would be some bottle-necking (for newbies, it basically means a component isn't performing as efficiently as it should).

For entirely Intel builds only!
