Review Date: 04/09/15
Cons: No hyperthreading

Pros: Great value
Bought this to finally switch back to intel from an 1100T. This processor is way faster by far. Very happy with it.

Review Date: 04/01/15
Cons: None

Pros: - Reviews are accurate, very powerful 4 core CPU.
I haven't run into any problems with this CPU yet. It's fast and furious. I can't mark it down for only having 4 cores, I bought a 4 core CPU. If you want to be able to do heavy multi-tasking, then get yourself an i7.However, I was able to have a modern game open in the background running at 33% CPU load without noticing any slowdown in windows.

Review Date: 02/13/15
Cons: 4.7 Ghz not very stable with substantial voltage increase

Pros: Stable at 4.6 Ghz with minimal voltage/power increase
Very Fast processor with 4 cores and threads.Decent overclocking capability for a low price.Much better performance and efficiency compared to all AMD processors.

Review Date: 02/06/15
Cons: none

Pros: amazing cpu. very powerful. Huge upgrade for me, as i upgraded from a 10 year old computer. Just super fast and responsive.
Great cpu all around, overclockable if needed in the future, which is why i picked it. Little pricey, but you get what you pay for and i just find intel to be the better brand when it comes to cpu's. Just try to get it on sale if you can, and you won't be disappointed.

Review Date: 01/30/15
Cons: none that I can think of

Pros: Great cpu for over clocking
Got this with a Hero VII MB and I couldn't be happier

Review Date: 01/28/15
Cons: - No hyperthreading.

Pros: - Intel's on-board graphics is awesome.- Efficient power consumption.- Supports overclocking.
I've been sticking with Intel since they released the market leading HD3000 on-board graphics with Sandybridge. For a non-gamer like me, having on-board LAN, audio and graphics is great because it saves the PC costs as well as improves air circulation in the case. Win-win.

Review Date: 01/12/15
Cons: None so far

Pros: Very fast, good quality, and stable.
4 cores is all thats needed for gaming, no bottlenecking, and it works well with my GTX 970.

Review Date: 01/05/15
Cons: none

Pros: fast, cool, lots of drivers and utilities
This CPU is great for anything I throw at it. Most of my programs run twice as fast as they did on my old FX 6200 Series processor and the stock cooler is actually of quite decent quality and comes with thermal paste pre-applied. Solid product from Intel, as always.

Review Date: 12/24/14
Cons: Pricematch

Pros: Runs CoolOverclocks GreatSpeed
...the Haswell swan song is well worth it; runs cool, overclocks great...if you're building now, go for it!!...

Review Date: 12/22/14
Cons: -None so far

Pros: -Fast-Overclocks great-Stays very cool, 60 degrees q 4.2 gaming load with stock cooler.
I received this in the mail about a week ago and it's fantastic. I have no complaints at all. It overclocked to 4.2 Ghz with ease, and stays below 60 degrees with the stock cooler. You really can't go wrong with this product.

Review Date: 12/18/14
Cons: None.

Pros: Great PriceEasy overclockingGreat CPU
It's a great CPU at a really good price. Stable overclocking, super-fast.Comes with a stock heat-sink that you can ignore, or use as a paperweight.

Review Date: 12/08/14
Cons: - comes with a stock heatsink/paperweight

Pros: + best gaming CPU for the money+ easy and decent overclocker
Does 4GHz with minimal effort at fairly low voltage, haven't bothered to try to go higher. Pretty much as fast a CPU as one would need for gaming in the foreseeable future.

Review Date: 11/25/14
Cons: none

Pros: a lot faster than my previous ivy bridge
very happy with my purchase. but if you have higher budget for your build go to higher model

Review Date: 11/22/14
Cons: None

Pros: FastRuns CoolGood value
Upgraded to this from a Q6600 overclocked to 3.6ghz.Motherboard finally failed time to get with the times. Processor has a Very noticeable improvement in general performance and gaming. Applications load much faster and games do not lag vs. with Q6600Processor at stock speeds has nearly the same frequency as previous overclocked Q6600 but runs way cooler, uses less power and to top it off has turbo boost with even higher frequencies.Awesome upgrade would recommend to any one looking to upgrade from an older platform but does want to spend the additional or does need an I7 with hyper threading.

Review Date: 10/18/14
Cons: - Stock heatsink installation isn't great- Stock fan can be quite annoying under load

Pros: + Extremely fast+ Devil's Canyon has much lower temps than original Haswell and Ivy Bridge CPUs
The performance of this processor is incredible. I was really hesitant to spend this much on the CPU as the internet seems to be a big fan of AMD processors and everywhere I went people told me I was wasting my money by getting the Intel Core i5... well, no regrets!General computing is much snappier - programs open quicker, there are less freezes and hiccups, computer boots faster, web pages load in full screen faster, and games perform phenomenally!I highly recommend this processor for anyone looking for an upgrade that'll last for years... especially with DirectX 12 around the corner, this CPU isn't going to be a bottleneck in gaming for a very long time.Battlefield 4 - 1920x1080, medium settings:70-100 fps as infantry in 64p servers110-160 fps in vehicles in 64p serversBattlefield 3 - 1920x1080, high settings:65-150 fps as infantry in 64p servers80-200 fps in vehicles in 64p serversWorld of Warcraft - 1920x1080, good-high settings:90-120 fps out in the world60-90 fps in battlegrounds, dungeons50-90 fps in raidsSPECS:Intel Core i5-4690K 3.50GHz (stock)Gigabyte GA-Z97X-SLI Motherboard8GB 2x4 G.Skill Ripjaws 1600MHzEVGA GeForce GTX 560 1GB h 850MHzWindows 8.1 Pro 64-bit

Pros: Runs coolFastUnlocked clock
Got it for a better price than the non "K" version. This is a fast processor. Really no need to spend an extra $100 or more for an i7.

Cons: No HT.

Pros: FastGood performance
WOW super processor for the price. I'm really happy.

Review Date: 09/07/14
Cons: None

Pros: Made for overclockingRuns cool
Bought this with the ASUS Z97-Pro (wi-fi AC). I'm using a tower cooler and was able to OC this beast to 4.7GHz stable on air cooling. The chip never reached 75C in stress testing.Performance is out of this world.

Review Date: 08/27/14
Cons: NONE

Pros: Fast...fast and fast!!
Built a system with Asus Z97-A and 8gb of Kingston HyperX Black. No issues at all. Extremely fast!!

Review Date: 08/10/14
Cons: None

Pros: FastExcellent price/performance ratioLow TDP
I upgraded from a phenom 940 and all I can say is "WOW". The difference in performance is just ridiculous. If you're a gamer on a budget then I would strongly suggest getting the 4690k.

Review Date: 07/19/14
Cons: Non so far

Pros: Quick, runs cool. energy efficient. Supposed to have better heat disapation than the 4670K.
Bought this processor in a bundle along with an ASUS Maximus VII Hero Z97 MB. After some initial issues with the MB and great service from NCIX on an exchange I am up and running and very pleased with the system's performanc. Only time will tell whether the system will continue to perform this well over the long haul.
