Excellant Fast Bulletproof Processor! My second one!

chaswin, Ebay
22 December 2013
  • Summary: Second one of these I have bought. Need I say more? I build bullet proof, fast, non-overclocked machines for Family and Friends. This one is for my Brother. Used with a Corsair Force GT SSD, Corsair 1600 RAM on an ASUS P8Z68 Deluxe motherboard, it takes longer to post than to be surfing the net after it starts getting the OS from the hard drive/SSD. I would say boot time is only about 10% faster than the i5-2500K's I have, so if you want to save $100 that is an option.

I upgraded from a Pentium D. Wow, just... wow.

Dustin Harris "Dustin Linux", Amazon

  • Summary: Let me say first up that the FX-8320 or 8350 from AMD is probably a better value at the moment, I just managed to snag this for $219. I'm still on the stock cooler and clock (water cooling system is shipping), and it's taken everything I've thrown at it, including 6th generation console emulation, like the GameCube and the Playstation 2 at full speed and with enhanced graphics.

Awesome CPU

Colin Adams, Amazon
29 June 2013
  • Summary: This CPU may have come out over two years ago in 2011, but it is still very powerful. No real point upgrading to Ivy or Haswell.

For game machines!

Duane G. Jacobs, Amazon
14 February 2013
  • Summary: I built a PC with gaming in mind and this processor is wonderful. Couple this with a good video card and plenty of memory; you cannot go wrong. Intel does it again. I can only imagine how good the 3rd gen processors are. I highly recommend this one because it is a little cheaper than the 3rd gen processors and performs very well. Plus there are plenty of motherboards that can use it, which will bring down your system build cost.

I love this 2600K

Evan Koehler "Evko", Amazon
26 November 2012
  • Summary: Intel makes fantastic chips. I think we all know that. The i7 2600K is another wonderful creation. I have the intel overclocked to 4.5 ghz with no problems. I use aftermarket cooling ( Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120mm PWM Fan (RR-212E-20PK-R2) ) and the chip just goes to town. I render through most nights and the chip has held up it's end of the bargin. I don't believe that I will be needing another card anytime soon.

Intel Customer Support is Top Notch

J.P., Amazon
1 August 2012
  • Summary: I bought this processor about a year ago and it failed 2 months ago. While inconvenient I was about to upgrade to Ivy Bridge anyway. I called up Intel and their customer service was knowledgeable and respectful and after making sure I had done the proper troubleshooting (which I already had) processed the RMA. I don't use this processer anymore in my desktop as I've already replaced it with an Ivy Bridge. But I am building my parents a PC and plan to use this i7 in it.
