    i5 6600k PC Value Gaming

    The i5 line has continued to offer the best value for high level PC Gaming. The 6600k offers performance that shows marginal decreases in performance vs i7 offerings. Save yourself some $$$ and stick with the i5. This is now the 3rd i5 I have built (2600k, 4690k) and the 2600k even today still is capable of running systems delivering maxed settings in modern titles like GTAV & BF1. So do not fear a bottleneck or performance hit by going with a i5 instead of a i7. Make a smart consumer decision and go with the i5.

    This is a great processor that I purchased for a new build. The CPU has excelled through a gauntlet of benchmarks, cutting edge games, and multi-monitor multitasking. Paired with the CoolerMaster 212, this CPU runs efficiently at stable temperatures and overclocks well too. Pros: Powerful, Efficient, lots of bang for the buck in the mid-tier price range. Cons: None so far. Would definitely buy again.

    Are you looking to get a processor for your pc build or upgrade? Do you want i7 performance but dont have i7-6700k money?! Then get the i5-6600k! Don't kid yourself, you're not going to render movies while playing Witcher 3. You need a solid CPU you can use out the box for gaming that you can later over clock when you want to. Great processor, easy to install.

    Came in a shoddy box, albeit quickly/on time. Opened crumpled box to find the intel 6600k blue box with tape keeping it closed, tried to connect to my computer with an equal socket and got nothing but blue screens. Seeking refund/return immediately.

    My son is building a gaming PC and is using this component to increase performance over what he had before. So far, it has worked great. It was a very easy and quick swap in, and performance seems solid. Good product, and a good price as well.

    Excellent card. Very quiet. Red LEDs are bright. Triple fan keeps it cool. Ugly on top. Very plaIn with serial no,bets n such everywhere. If it's possible for you to set this card up facing forward it will look amazing.

    Bought this for my gaming rig and it's been perfect. Very fast, great price and is overclockable. I thought about getting the i7 but used the money I saved by getting this on a better video card and it was a good decision.
