    from completed build Liquid Cooled MacPro PC

    This processor is a beast! It easily overclocks to 5.0 GHz, and with some tuning i wouldn't be surprised to see 5.2-5.3 GHz. It runs cool, and for the money I couldn't be more happy with it. I don't regret getting the 8600K over the 8700K. For a gaming/everyday use machine this processor is great!

    from completed build So, I did a thing...

    Upgraded from the 6600k because I sold my old system. Good little boost in performance. I have mine running at 5Ghz and it doesn't skip a beat. With the current trend in CPU performance I won't need to worry about upgrading anytime soon either. I chose the i5 over the i7 because I couldn't justify the minimal increase in gaming performance over the slightly more significant price difference

    I got this thing delidded from SiliconLottery and oh my GOD it's fast. Constant 5.0GHz, constant cool temperatures with my AIO cooler. Never above 55ºC.

    Awesome value oriented CPU. I chose this over the 8700 to save some money and also hopeful for more ovevclocking headroom since it isn't as stressed without Hyperthreading.

    Works great, have it over clocked at 4.4ghz, and it loads everything i need.

    Awesome overclocking capabilities, it's not worth an extra $100 for the 8700k, this is more value!

    Love this CPU! Great gaming CPU. It is currently delidded and lapped by yours truly. I think I got a little lucky being able to hit 5.4Ghz

    from completed build Project: LILA (UPGRADE FROM Z87)

    Runs very stable at 5.1GHz with no effort it seems, which makes me feel more confident in the longevity of this piece in my rig. Currently running at 4.5GHz comfortable and cool while streaming and playing PoE, Diablo, similar demanding titles
