Q6600, Q9650, i7 920, Xeon X5675 (6 core), > Ryzen (finally a affordable 8 core)

Guide pls

Black US says:

Sorry for the stupid question, but does this processor (or any other really) comes with a plastic over the pin area? (not the plastic cover, but after you remove the plastic cover, a thin layer of plastic over the pin area)
I’m having problems with my processor and i might send it to the assistance, it is hard to explain why… Help someone?

No trolls please

I cannot emphasize enough how most of your viewers watch this at low resolution. I do not have a 4k TV never mind a computer monitor. 720 is my level of viewing many have replied to me they use even lower because that is what they have

Darin Mitchell says:

Just got the i7 770K over the Ryzen and now I regret it… did I make the wrong choice?

Franku Doge says:

4.6GHZ from a 6700K? That’s shit! I get 4.9GHZ out of my 4790k running at 1.299v and I only hit 60c max. I run it at 4.8 though just to be extra safe, although I still get 982 on cinebench.

Zephyr L says:

Last cpu im buying from them. Amd next, only got trouble with this CPU so far.

Ennyway says:

From what I’ve read, the single-core processing seems to be pretty good overall, even the cpu as a whole doesn’t necessarily impress. I still play the hell out of older games that are locked to two cores, and one of them, New Vegas, is so close to being in the 50-60fps range at all times with a 4690k. Anyone have any idea if an upgrade to a 7700k would iron out those last frames? It’s not a GPU issue, as I experience no increase/decrease between vanilla textures and hi-res stuff. I’d spend any amount of money to run New Vegas at the best possible performance, and am definitely willing to drop however much on a new cpu/motherboard/RAM kit to finally hit 55-60 on the strip.

Pieter says:

I upgraded from a I7,3770k and in this case, it is really a good update.

Haddz says:

“High end processor” I got one of eBay that works for $25

Flemma says:

Isnt 1,35V too much for the i7 6700k? i clocked my I7 6700k to 5GHZ its stable on 1,30- 1,35V with temps max 75C°
