I purchased this when it was £161 last week. I was alerted of a price drop by pcpartpicker. It has dropped to £152.

However I used Flubit when price was at £161, they offered me £151, which I purchased.

The real deal is via Flubit, they offered this for £144 now. So £144 for an unlocked cpu which I overclocked to 4.5ghz with ease. Well worth it.

Intel's 4th gen processor codename: Haswell offers superior performance over the previous generation Ivybridge by up to 10% clock for clock. This astounding performance boost results in performance improvements in multi-tasking, encoding, gaming and multithreaded applications. Intel's 4th generation processor has improved PCI-Lane 3.0 bandwidth which helps further boost performance of latest generation 3 graphics cards for the ultimate gaming experience.

For overclocking enthusiasts, Intel's 4th gen CPU has improved memory overclocking support, with up to and beyond 3000MHz possible with the very best memory kits. Memory bandwidth is critically important to Haswell compared to previous generations. High frequency memory performance significantly improves encoding, gaming and benchmarking tasks.

If you buy the i5-4690K which is £15.50 more at Amazon you can claim back £40 if you also buy any Asus Z97 board so in effect a net saving of £24.50 plus the faster CPU.
Cashback Link.
Also deals for other manufacturers.

The cheapest i5 cpu is the 4430 which retails for £140 on amazon. So £4 more for a significant difference in processing speed.

The i5 4460 is £131.99 ;)
I have no idea why the better chip is more expensive but I'm not complaining.
I got one the other week for the same price and it doesn't appear to have changed since so it's at a steady price.

You do need a good motherboard to take advantage of the overclocking.
So add another £30-£50 on top?

Not to knock the cpu as I always overclock, but the non K parts are good for some :)

OC'd mine to 4.2 eazy.

Yes my mistake, I looked into the 4460 for a while, on Aria pc too. It looked like a good choice. But I thought I'd rather pick up the better motherboard and cpu to go with my r9 280 which I purchased from one of the deals posted here.

Bought for £148 via Flubit in July and this is a great chip. Rock steady OC @ 4.4Ghz and the performance is great.

One thing I'd certainly recommend to anyone purchasing this chip with a view to OC it is get a beefy cooler like the Hyper 212 Evo or a 120mm radiator cooling kit. I'm sat on temps of less than 40c under load.

Head added.

I've been looking to source several bits to build my own gaming pc and was going to go for the Intel Core i7 4790K 4.0GHz 4th Generation Processor @ approx. £250ish from Amazon. I've heard that in terms of raw gaming that the i7 does not really add any value so given the price of i5 can anyone suggest or recommend the best way forward?

Those are good load temps, very good.

Flubit is good for stuff like games where its disc items and very rarely have problems. Having to mess around with some dodgy dealer when returning stuff will not be fun. Amazon all the way for buying technology items.

The 4690K really isn't that much more (£15 on amazon). Worth it for bragging rights alone at that money.

What motherboard did you use to overclock this to 4.5ghz? Thanks

Depends on the game your using I suppose. Some games won't use all threads so in that scenario not much point over an i5 unless your streaming to Twitch at the same time. Some games will make use of all threads, depends on the game engine used.

I would probably be tempted to just buy i5 and spend more on gpu ram or ssd.I bought i7 but I do a lot of streaming and video editing and make use of all 8 threads quite often.

All depends on exactly what your going to be doing. Each game or program will I present a different scenario to be fair.
Older games tend to only make use of a couple of threads and in that scenario I would just grab i5 and push the overclock which should be easier to push higher overclock due to less heat as there's no hyperthreading.

Games like BF4 may make use of all threads though and a lot of newer console ports will use all threads due to the fact the new gen of consoles are using 8 threads.

Some motherboards, do not support the 4690k, thus the reason why I picked its predecessor 4670k.

Depends on your motherboard... research onto your motherboard brand & model and overclocking on youtube or tomshardware.

To those that don't mind or have the budget to spend a little more you're better of getting the 4690K with the Intel cash back available from the following thread: http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/intel-toptechcashback-back-buy-intel-cpu-motherboard-with-intel-chipset-claim-up-2052985

Not really, my motherboard and cpu amounted to £229. Although not much cheaper. My motherboard is a MICRO atx mobo, thus I cannot purchase an ATX motherboard to QUALIFY for the INTEL cashback.

People with MICRO-ATX & MINI-ITX motherboards, this is a hot. For people with ATX go for the intel cashback deal, but you are limited to certain motherboards and the cashback date ends on the 27th of December 2014. If you can manage to sort out your redemption by then.

Hi.
The best thing you can do is to overclock.net and make a thread there.
You will get excellent help there and good advice.

If you're buying the 4690K along with a motherboard for the cashback, might be worth checking out the Gigabyte Black Edition motherboards, as they are eligible for a free upgrade to a newer model within 3 years of purchase.

Asus Qualifying Product: All Z97 Motherboards.
Gigabyte have mITX boards that qualify but only had a quick look so check the list for eligibility.

It's odd that the claim forms most recent purchase date is the 7th Nov 2014.. so anyone who has ordered any time after that can still claim? https://toptechcashback.com/uk/en/claims/cashback/invoice
Edit: It says "Complete the claim form on this website 30 – 60 days after your purchase." So that explains it :)

I have just ordered an MSI Z97 Gaming 3 and an i5 4690K so should get £35 cashback, hopefully without too much hassle..

Top man for linking that thread. Im on my phone atm so bit of a pain for me to do that.

Great price, I literally just got the 4690k and installed yesterday, I know it has better TIM, and I overclocked to 4ghz @ 1volt with arctic freezer 7 pro rev.2 cooler, ran Prime95 and max temps were 49 degrees, idle 26, very happy with it. I would be interest if someone can dial in the same settings on this cpu and compare the difference.

I used Hardware monitor for the results with cpu-z, many thanks :)

I will conduct further testing, and still getting used to the bios settings

i upgraded from i5 2500k to this i5 4670k cpu & it's the best pc build i have ever done (gigabyte Z97 micro gaming pc). this 4th gen cpu is way better than the 2nd gen cpu that i had before. excellent performance in 1080p games no need for me to overclock it too. :)

Are you sure this wasn't because of a different graphics card? at 1080p, there's < 2% difference in almost every game. See:

Great price for this CPU. If you're building a new gaming PC today, this should be in it.

There really isn't much point in upgrading from a 2nd gen i5 2500k though. Performance difference would be unnoticeable. The only benefits would be slightly less heat and noise.
