Great for Video Editing

  • Excerpt: I originally bought an Intel i5 2500K, however I ended up buying this for the increased performance in multi-core applications (such as After Effects, Photoshop, and 3DS Max). It also supports VT-D, which is another huge plus for me. The idle temp is very low (34C with stock cooler), and my load temp has never passed 65C. The stock cooler is so effective, I don't see the need to ever buy an aftermarket cooler.

  • Excerpt: Purchased several of these from the local Microcenter for use in my builds -- and have never been happier with performance and overclocking capabilities.

  • Excerpt: I purchased the 2600K processor from Microcenter during their promotional period when it was going for $270 USD, pairing it with an AsRock P67 Extreme 6 motherboard in order to increase my folding potential. My specific processor was diffused in Malaysia and was part of batch L050A853.

Core i7 2600k Reivew

  • Excerpt: This thing is amazing - probably Intel's best CPU yet. With a good motherboard, its incredibly easy to overclock, and the voltage needed to hit 5ghz is fairly low (im at 4.96ghz @ 1.395v). The performance is amazing as well. In games its THE BEST CPU available. Bar none. Overclocked its just better. For rendering, its up there. Outside of the 6-core Intel CPUs, it cant be beat. The power usage is fairly low, as well as the heat output.

Great processor

  • Excerpt: I don't do much video encoding and such but I do fold. This thing is great for folding and will give you some solid PPD. Gaming on this is great (though if you're not folding/video encoding go with the i5 2500k) and is easy as can be for overclocking. Overall this CPU will last for a while* and is a great addition to any rig that supports it. There is nothing really bad to say about this processor.

  • Excerpt: Good chip. Very good bang for the buck. If you don't mind spending a little time reading up and tweaking settings, then this can be a very powerful CPU.
