Overall Review: Have not had any issues with this cpu. Paired it with an asus z590 plus mbd, rtx 3060 ti, 32gb ddr4 3600 c16, 1tb ssd and a 2tb hdd with 16g optane module.
Pros: The good thing about the 11 700k is that it is basically an 11900k with a slightly higher base clock and a slightly slower turbo clock. Now for these reasons I'm going to call Intel out on this B-S in the cons section.
Cons: The con is that if you bought an 11900k you've literally gotten ripped off $200 for nothing just buy the 11700k and you have an 11900k.
Overall Review: My overall review is that this is an excellent CPU it has eight cores 16 threads it will Turbo up to 5 GHz which is more than fast enough especially with 8 cores. I have not seen it do any blender tests but I'm guessing that it would do just fine. If all you care about is core count then I would definitely recommend getting a 10900k or a 12900k. In any instance though I would definitely never recommend getting the 11900k it is literally just a symbol of status and if you actually want gaming performance and to be able to save a few bucks get the 11700k.
Pros: - 5.0 GHz all-core OC stable for months
- Terrific benchmarks: Rivals my Ryzen 5 5600X
- Excellent for gaming: Been using with a RTX 2060 SUPER
Cons: - Power hungry
Overall Review: I would definitely recommend the 11600K. Check out the attached screenshots for details on temperatures, power, clocks and benchmarks. I'm using the Arctic Liquid Freezer II 280mm AIO to cool it - works really well. Using average 3,600 XMP DDR4 memory (4x8 GB) and a 650W power supply with the ASRock Z590M Phantom Gaming 4 mobo.
Pros: I didn't have any issues installing it or booting it up for its first time. Seems decent for mid tier/level gaming. Can be overclocked which is good for those who wish to do it and its ok-ish pricewise.
Cons: Like most CPU's it is already almost outdated with the new 12 gen CPU's that are out but with the prices of the 12th gen CPU's this will work just fine till they come down.
Overall Review: I used this in my new gaming rig because the 12th gen CPU's were just to over priced compared to performance. Unless the 12th gen prices come down to a reasonable price I will be using this same CPU when I build my wifes gaming rig here around summer time.
Pros: Speed, turbo boost 3.0
Cons: Power hungry
Overall Review: Best cpu owned by far! No need to OC it at all, but if you want extra performance you can easily (make sure you have a premium cooling) shipped was very fast. Installed it paired with my MSI Z490 ACE and DDR4-4000 memory
Pros: - Very fast
- Amazing for Gaming
- low CPU temps
- Only a little more expensive than the previous version
Cons: - Only slightly faster than the 10700k but much slower than the 12700k
- Not very cheap compared to other CPUs of the same performance
Overall Review: I bought this product on sale, I had originally planned to buy the i710700k but immediately refunded the purchase after finding this for only a few dollars more. It performs like a beast, is newer and only cost me a few dollars more than the previous version. overall great purchase and it works great with the RTX 3070 and hyper 212 Evo heatsink cooler.
Pros: - Lightning fast power delivery on the fly, out of box.
- 5.1GHz 6 core 5.3GHz 2 core stable turbo boost with Intel ABT
- Integrated GPU allows for temporary use without a dGPU, the iGPU is fairly capable for moderate gaming and media.
Cons: - Get a BIG cooler. You will need it for this puppy. She cranks out some thermals!
Overall Review: - I absolutely recommend this as a CPU upgrade for anyone running an older 10th gen CPU and is looking to peak out their performance.
Pros: Decent price point, especially when compared to the i9.
I've had it for a month now and it's been performing wonderfully.
Overall Review: I'd recommend this product and would purchase again. It does everything I need and has room for more!
