5* Excellent processor, great for gaming
Reviewed by Carl Worthintgon on 17/10/2014
The CPU is great from the get-go, very easy to overclock when the necessary motherboard.
No problems with installation.

A little pricey but the 4690k is a better pick over the slightly cheaper 4670k for it's improved clockability and better thermal trim.
5* Works like a charm!

Worth the money if you're going for a high-end computing rig.

I've used ASUS Suite 3 and the ASUS BIOS to overclock this beauty to 4.9GHz, obviously I won't run it at that speed as my computer will fry.

My setup is:

i5 4690K @ 3.5GHz
16GB Crucial Tactical Tracers @ 1600MHz (DDR3)
H80i (Corsair Watercooler)
600W Corsair Modular PSU
R9 280 Sapphire DUAL-OC X

Games such as GTA V run constantly at 60FPS on my 1080p monitor. There are some hiccups but that's due to the game itself having a bit of hicks towards my GPU.
