get Noctua CPU cooler

Drew K., Newegg
22 December 2014
  • Summary: Noctua has a new line of CPU coolers that are made for smaller cases. Originally I got the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO, super highly rated cooler, but it did not fit in my Corsair 250D. The Noctua NH-U9S fits like a charm, and has all the awesomeness that Noctua is known for.
  • Pros: excellent value
  • Cons: OEM cooler sucks. Nothing new there. Try: 117F vs 97F. Big difference if you're going to do any over-clocking.

great cpu

Mark R., Newegg
20 November 2014
  • Summary: Definitely a good unit, especially for the price. I would advise getting the 4690K instead if you're going for an i5, though.
  • Pros: Great cpu, fast, easy to install.
  • Cons: Stock heatsink and fan aren't that great, but will get the job done if you don't plan on doing any overclocking.

Good - but only 5% faster than my 2500k

Mr. G., Newegg
8 October 2014
  • Summary: I was lucky enough to not buy this for me. This was for the mother in law's new computer, but while I had it sitting there, I benched it against my Sandy Bridge 2500k - and it was about the same. on average 3-5% was all you see out of the newer chip.
  • Pros: Nice chip with mediocre integrated video.
  • Cons: Not really an upgrade from the Sandy Bridge era chips.

User Review

Timothy K., Newegg
30 August 2014
  • Pros: Relatively low power usage. Eliminates any foreseeable bottleneck with current transfer pipelines available. Can keep up with all current AAA CPU-intensive games.
  • Cons: OC maxes at 4.3-4.4 stable on water w/o de-lidding. Core management not always the best.

  • Summary: I usually don't bother with reviews, but this time is different, I bought this processor in a bundle with the msi z87-gd65 motherboard, and everything installed fine and the performance is great.

Very good CPU

James M., Newegg
9 July 2014
  • Summary: I might have got a bad CPU out of the group, but man I can do things so much faster around my computer now. Previously owning an E8400, I might be a bit biased but it's a great (hot) processor!
  • Pros: - The speed is crazy compared to my old E8400 - Turbo boost is nice to have. It doesn't effect temperature all that much - Plays games flawlessly - Rarely at 100% CPU load (Only happens sometimes during rendering)
  • Cons: - Stock cooler BARELY gets by, get an after market one even if all you do is browse websites - Can get very hot (I hit 90C when rendering even with a ghetto window cooler fan setup, after market heat sink, and no turbo boost)

Great processor

Jordan L., Newegg
6 July 2014
  • Pros: Pros: very little problems with this processor,as it runs great. i would highly recommend this to anyone.
  • Cons: Cons: The heat. The stock CPU cooler is in no way prepared for this monster. It can hold out for half a year maybe but you'll eventually have to upgrade as I'm doing now.
