Still Relevant Over 4 Years Later

Ryan V., Newegg
1 January 2016
  • Summary: - Despite the low utilization of the HT, it's still nice to have and I'm sure it has contributed to how long this processor has remained relevant. - This processor at 4.6 GHz is holding its own against any modern CPU.
  • Pros: - Running 4.6 GHz daily for its whole life with just a hair of extra voltage. - Pretty cool. With an aftermarket air cooler it stays around 70 C max. - It still holds up well today. I don't notice any slowdowns in modern games.
  • Cons: - It's keeping me from upgrading! It still holds up too well to justify a new CPU. - Even after all these years it still seems like games barely utilize the extra threads and top out at 4 threads. - My 2600k seems to get very hungry after 4.6 GHz. I ran it at 4.8 GHz for a while but backed off af...

Fantastic CPU!!

Cam N., Newegg
25 October 2015
  • Summary: I would say that 90% of the people out there would be hard pressed at bringing this CPU to its knees. It is a workhorse CPU and there really isn't a need to upgrade at this time.
  • Pros: I have owned this processor for almost 3 years now and have been completely blown away by its performance. I have it OC to 4.5Ghz right now on air and it has never let me down. I just have to say that this processor is never the bottleneck in my PC and can handle anything that is thrown at it des...
  • Cons: The only Con I can think of is that I don't have an excuse to build a new rig... I doubt I'd see any improvement if I upgraded to the latest intel CPU (besides benchmarks).

Hi mom

Anonymous, Newegg
13 August 2015
  • Summary: I paid a little over $300 bucks for this chip. It was worth every penny. Thank you Intel, great work on this chip.
  • Pros: Man, what a chip. I have had this chip running 24x7 @ 4.5ghz since 2011.. And it never hiccups. Even now, 4 years later, i still have no need or desire to "upgrade".
  • Cons: It's no longer for sale..

Still Amazing 4 Years Later!

Christopher M., Newegg
20 July 2015
  • Summary: This is the best CPU Intel has ever made. 4 years of running at 4.7GHZ on air 24/7 stable with 5GHZ for benchmarking and it's still going strong. Sure Haswell overs about 15% clock for clock improvement, but it doesn't overclock as well as this good old Sandy Bridge.
  • Pros: 5GHZ on Air!
  • Cons: Uhh....I have no reason to upgrade?

No sign of fatigue after 4 years

David S., Newegg
21 June 2015
  • Summary: Despite its cost, it is the best and more reliable CPU i've ever owned and it still being great in 2015.
  • Pros: 1- I've been doing a 10% of overclock since 4 years in a row 2- Still having no issue 3- Come from a generation where CPU Heatsink were numerous! 4- A lot of room for different approach of overclock 5- Hyperthread which is useful when multitasking and can be disabled when needed to get more perfo...
  • Cons: 1- It was very costly at the epoch
