Piers, Whitstable Student PC Enthusiast

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Great performance straight away, easy install.
Bad points:
Idles a bit hot compared to some other processors. This may be down to the stock cooler. Not really a problem though, there's no thermal throttling.

Rich,

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Nice speedy chip fan is good and value for money is great running loads of stuff at same time and keeps up with it all. Not oc'd and fan sits nicely cooling things down. If were to oc would get a meatier fan!
Bad points:
It's not an i7.... But hey...

Ian, leicester Drunk artist.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Very good product. Runs everything really just on stock. However, Rome 2 did stutter on full settings, so after adding some cooling I clocked this up to 4ghz (which was easy on the MB) and no stutter from Rome 2 now and it has been stable for a few days so far. Good marks in 3D mark also. I would still love to get an I7, but there really isn't any need at the moment...
Relatively good for the price.
Bad points:
Wanted an I7...

But don't actually need one as the i5 is doing the job.

Neil,

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Already built one gaming PC using the 4690k. Great chip with excellent performance and upgrade potential. Can be a little pricey at full RRP, especially as the next gen chips have been released. I bought both with sizeable discounts, so was a no brainer in terms of value for money v performance.
Bad points:
Absolutely nothing
