Intel Core i7 i7-4790K CPU (Quad Core 4GHz, Socket H3 LGA-1150) - £255.19 Sold by shopherellc and Fulfilled by Amazon.

I know it's not the latest gen of Intel, but it's the best I7 CPU for most games / applications. This is a good £15 less than I can see it elsewhere.

TL: DR
How can you complain about 'tech experts' and then say 'TL:DR'?
TL:DR for me:
If you have the motherboard and ram already, this is a good option. If you don't, buy the 6700k.

I didn't complain about them, I find them very amusing, up to a point. And then I can stand it no longer LOL :p

Sure you could go with cheaper RAM for both, I picked this because this is prob something similar to what people will go for.
Going for the cheapest RAM - ddr 3 - 15 - ebay - ddr4 - 19 - pcpartpicker - reducing savings to 54. Which is more in line with what you said. Still enough to sway a better GPU. Still a great CPU and good option.
Still gets heat from me.
I have no clue why you are insisting on listing the ram at 12 quid higher for DDR4 after I've already linked it nor why you'd link to a higher costing motherboard after I linked a cheaper one.
I mean, you are artificially inflating the option you don't want to 'win' to make a point.
HyperX fury Black for 59.75 on PC part picker. Again, it drops your difference, even in your cherry picked scenario, to less than 55.
I feel I'm talking to a wall here, so I'll repeat myself one more time and excuse myself from this conversation.
If you have DDR3 and a socket 1150 motherboard and are looking for a CPU upgrade... This is a good option. Make sure you are upgrading from an i3 or lower though, as there isn't that big of gain in this situation.
If you don't have DDR3 or a socket 1150. Buy the latest tech, either a 6600k or a 6700k, DDR4, and a socket 1151.
If you are in the market for a GPU and you are debating where to allocate your money, don't buy the 4790k or the 6700k.
Either go with the i5 6500 for 171 or an i5 2500k for 85~.
Your GPU will always be the most important aspect of gaming in the current DX11 generation of games.

Im just posting the cheapest options that i found online. Even if you did find cheaper options I'm not inflating anything these are just what i found.
I do agree if you've got the dosh buy the 6700k like I've already said, i do still think this is a good chip mainly if you've already got a 1151 mother board and RAM to go along with it.

Anyways good chat i thoroughly enjoyed it.

If your building a budget pc, this is just a bad idea. You're stuck with no further upgrade options at all. At least if you get the Intel Pentium, you have the option to go i7 and everything in between. It's a poor value option.
And as said, overkill for a htpc. I can't think of any decent uses for this chip

Interesting to see someone use the same word twice and spell it incorrectly and then correctly in the very next sentence!

Anyways i disagree, personally everytime i purchase a new mobo i keep upgrading options in mind, but when it comes to actually upgrading i always end up buying a new mobo and chip etc anyway, usually because i need different ram or some other new feature. So leaving yourself without an upgrade path is fine for most people who don't change their PC every week.

Unless you upgrade every few months, this chip is totally fine for a single build PC for viewing the web, emails etc, and dare i say it some less intensive gaming.

horses for courses.

So someone says great for HTPC others say overkill and not low wattage
so what is it guys?
A8 7600 is 65w tdp throw in a a88x with 8 sata for my 8 X3TB WD Reds in a Node 804 running plex
For a HTPC you want something that sips power. Low power means much less heat to dissipate. Heat is your worst enemy in a htpc. Under a TV means less airflow, so you'll need active fans on the CPU and case to shove heat out. Fans means noise unless you spend £££ on a really good passive cooler, in which case you might as well have bought an equally well performing intel part that uses half the power and kicks out half the heat. I used a low profile HTPC so airflow was even more critical, I had a noctua l12 with my pentium g3258 (and now my i5 4440) and even when gaming it was barely audible.

You also don't need a brute of a cpu (not that this is), if its just video playback, perhaps encoding over plex, a cheap i3, or even a pentium will do you fine. Heck even the new atom lineup will work. If you're playing back h.265 4k files then you will want something with an igpu that supports it (the g3258 doesn't, the maxwell based 750ti I have does have partial support)

So yeah, this chip is about the worst you could choose imo just for a HTPC. Only those 125w piledriver chips are worse really.
forgot to say wanting to build my own as selling the HP N54L Server so is the AMD 5350 better in performance than what the HP uses
REAL_DEAL
This is going to be on 24/7 so whats more suitable?

I'd go for a 5350 for a 24/7 htpc/nas. Like 25w or something. Performance isn't fantastic but fine for 1080p video and web browsing. Performance is comparable to a £300 laptop
This is going to be on 24/7 so whats more suitable?

It's because Intel have not brought an updated version yet. When the release a new version, prices should fall.

no such thing as an i7 5820K extreme, it would be 5820X if i did exist, but it does not so misleading title.
https://www.cpubenchmark.net/high_end_cpus.html

powerbrick is correct, the i7-5820K part is not branded Extreme by Intel, that's reserved for -X suffixed CPUs, and usually reserved for the most powerful CPU in a particular generation, in this case that would be the i7-5960X Extreme Edition. There a useful comparison article here.

Intel i7 - 5820k (AIR-COOLED)
- Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO (with extra/optional 120mm fan installed)
- Cooler Master HAF 932 (High-Air-Flow case)
ASUS X99 Deluxe
32GB DDR4
GTX 980
Rosewill Photon 1200W PSU

My system has been on and under heavy use for a 8 days at 4.5 Ghz (32% increase from stock) - and it is AIR cooled.
Idle temps are 33-37 Celsius and under load max temps 69-74 Celsius

I do a lot of work with VMs (virtual machines), code-compiling and am a big gamer. This thing is a monster. No hiccups.

This is how I accomplished this (bear with me Ill get to my actual advice here soon :p )

The X99 mobo comes with some nice Over-clocking software (AI suite as mentioned in previous posts) that will push a full load on the CPU -all the while monitoring temperatures- and gradually step up the base clock RATIO in small increments until hits a max temp, and then it dials it back a notch to a stable overclock
I mention this for two reasons 1 (its awesome) and two; the method that AI 3 uses with auto tune is basically the same way you want to approach a manual overclock
--SMALL increase changes, test, increase, repeat, hit ceiling, dial back a bit, burn in stable--

I obviously did some manually tuning/over-clocking because, well, it's fun :)
Anyways I found with my testing the BEST (fast AND stable) OCs were achieved by following this method;
1. Pick a maximum Voltages that you feel comfortable pushing to the chip and set it (mine was 1.22V)
2. Leave the BCLK (BUS Speed) at the default 100 Mhz
3. In small increments increase the Ratio/Multiplier (number multiplied by the BCLK to compute CPU clock speed, default is 33) 33 x 100 = 3300 = 3.30 Ghz -(stock speed)
--I made increases of 2 to the Ratio, ran Prime95 for 10 minutes, increase, repeat, ceiling, dial back (47 crashed and 46 was unstable), run prime95 for 6 hours with temp logs running, insure stability-
4. Done

With LIQUID cooling I could see getting close to 5Ghz on this chip. Bear in mind always that every single ship does not behave the same way, -so please anyone don't read this and just go set your multiplier to 45 and hit go - Always monitor temps/fan speeds as you are tuning, whenever possible- Make small steps, and only change one(maybe 2) things at a time!

This Toshiba at £600, nothing is up to the price except the RAM.

CPU, GPU, screen, HDD all should be better to be worth £600.

This laptop is also a consumer laptop, the build quality is not worth any extra too, not like a business laptop or Ultrabook.

i7 cpu is one of the low performance ones designed to extend battery life, better to get a proper i7 quad core or decent i5.

No SSD, should now be standard on all £400+ laptops.

Yeah, i'm guessing that Intel are allowing this unofficial overclocking to give them a way to undo the CPU locking they've been doing IF the AMD CPUs due in 2016 are competitive. If they turn out to be weak then Intel can probably shut the door on non-K overclocking quite easily. Until Intel say for certain that they won't break the feature I'd be very hesitant if I were looking to buy.
I wouldn't buy from Overclockers - they used to be difficult with returns so they lost my custom. I'd rather buy from Amazon.
Over priced by intel

It shouldn't. I have a 9370 clocked at 5.219 with an H100i cooling it. It's what you need in your life.
NIce. What power supply do you have? What would you recommend for the FX9590?
Problem is your motherboard does not support the FX 9590 according to Asus.
My board didn't officially support it either but if it can take an overclocked 8350 why not a 9590?

I think the compatability may be down to the power rating of your motherboard. The cheapest boards are rated only for the lowest power level cpus, 90 watts i think. The better boards are rated for 125/150 watts range. Then you get the really sweet boards that are rated for the likes of the 220 watt beasts. Obviously, if you push a cpu on a lower tier board, you may run into reliability issues, or worse, could damage the board.

if you're not already invested in the AM3+ platform then you'd be better off even overclocked with the i5 even more so as the Intel chip uses half as much electricity over the year

Even if stuck with AM3+ you're better off OCing an 8370 and burning less power. TBH it makes so little difference to actual performance it's barely worth the OC anyway.

Link still worked on flubit for £334. Seems sketchy but time will tell :/

they will drop the price again. its not the latest skylake
Well Skylake isn't so great, it's literally barely any better than regular Haswell if you look up benchmarks. x99 is definitely worth the bit extra.

great price got mine for £220 6months ago off a friend. only downside is they run really hot


You might want to check your voltage in the BIOS. Some motherboards auto adjust the voltage based in the clock speed. When I installed my 4790k the board wanted to run it at some ridiculous voltage, so I had to manually set it down to 1.2V.

These shouldn't run that hot to be honest.
Now its expired :(
really tempted. Apparently the code is still working!!

If he games I'd personally get a 750ti or similar for 90 and a cheaper cpu for 100 .
​get gtx970 performes better on benchmarks and it's cheaper

A GTX970 is over double the cost of a 750ti ?

You don't necessarily need a GPU to complete the build as the i5 and board have built in gpu capability but it all depends on the games you want to play. I'm planning to build as is and then the lad's going to buy the GPU with Christmas money etc at a later date.
If you're playing decent games you will need a graphics card to add to this.
donny2004
do I need graphic card to add or its build in that could play medium games. thanks
I thinkthese are benchmarks for the IGPU. You'd be alright for some things with the resolution and detail turned down from the looks of it. If he needs a computer now then by all means, otherwise there's always the possibility prices "might" drop.

That said it'll be good for a fair few years. I have an old sandy bridge i5 and this thing (Early 2011 model) and my GPU still bottlenecks if anything. Until games start leveraging those 6+ core cpu's any second gen quadcore i5 is still more than adequate for gaming.

Let me know what mono u go for. Lime the look of the z 97 krait edition. but its sli only as far as can tell.

Hmmm Bizarre that Bespoke offer a price and then can't honour it. Maybe they got lots of requests at the £130 price and the supplier had no stock. I suspect they offered a price and the supplier just went no way at that price.
Or does this happen a lot??

I've had it happen to me several times with Flubit, never with Bespoke but only used them a few times.

if you've got an AM3 motherboard an a lesser CPU at the moment then this could be a good deal - I upgraded to one of these last year replacing an 720X3 which in turn replaced an X2 Athlon in or 2nd PC. however if starting a new build from scratch then Intel is probably way to go at the moment - especially as AM3 is probably on its way out.

One of these, or it's lower clock speed brother, 8320, will run any single GPU setup no problem. I've got an 8320 at 4.0 GHz with an undervolt at 1.22 V. Another 8320 at 3.9 GHz undervolted to 1.18 V. That speed is about the sweet spot for speed/voltage, although the chip will happily run at 4.3 on stock voltage of circa 1.33 V, it starts to get a bit thirsty if you ask for more speed. It's tragic that AMD didn't shrink these down to keep them at least competitve with Intel.
:D I have an 8320 too, It's been running happily at 4.4GHz since I got it, I've got it to 4.7GHz with over volting, but the 4.4 at stock voltage is fine. It'll easily handle any game, I can run multiple VM's on it (I got 32GB RAM too). Fantastic CPU's, and very affordable.
What did you mean by keeping competitive with Intel? In what way?
AMD need higher IPC and lower power consumption to compete. At this price though, it's not bad at all.
I won't be losing any sleep over the TDP difference in this (125W) and the nearest intel (95W). Gotta remember that this is the maximum amount of thermal energy the heat sink needs to be able to disperse, I know its easy to see it as a 'power consumption' figure but its really not.
The IPC part I assume is a general comment on AMD vs Intel. I agree, I think AMD's market was more the consoles and APU's. Hopefully Zen will set them back on track for big powerful CPU's!
The TDP doesn't seem to explain everything.https://images.duckduckgo.com/iu/?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.overclock.net%2Fcontent%2Ftype%2F61%2Fid%2F1176759%2Fwidth%2F500%2Fheight%2F1000%2Fflags%2FLL&f=1
Exactly! You'd be forgiven for saying TDP doesn't explain ANYTHING
The 8350 has a TDP of 125W, but can consume 195W
The 3770K has a TDP of 77W, but can consume 119W
The 3770K is a ~£250 CPU though!

This is non k i5 money. If your gaming I would not choose the i5. Why not buy the 8320e less then £100.

Because the 8320e has worse IPC than the 8350, let alone the i5. IPC is very important when gaming.

You can save a fair bit of money with two measures here - first of all, you can remove the DVD drive if, like many of us, you are fully digital.

Secondly, you are taking a hit in quality, but for £40 you can get a reasonable mATX case, 400W PSU (with eight-pin GPU PCIe power), keyboard and mouse: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Gigabyte-GZ-MA02-Kit-M-ATX-Case/dp/B00HLERWL8/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1437817523&sr=8-4&keywords=gigabyte+4-in-1

400W is more than enough for this build, and I've built many budget gaming PCs very simiar to your config with this - none have failed yet.

These changes take your £396 build down to £350, the same price as a 1TB PS4 :) Plus you get a keyboard and mouse.

EDIT: Actually, this version of the all-in-one has a 450W PSU for the same price - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Gigabyte-GZ-MA03-Kit-M-ATX-Case/dp/B00HLERWNQ/ref=pd_sim_147_3?ie=UTF8&refRID=193EQC7JDB4AC1YY2F0C

Might as well grab an Intel for this price.

Give it a few years for games to become more multithreaded and who knows, AMD might have something but I doubt it
The trouble is, intel do make some great CPU's and AMD just seem to always be one step behind nowadays although for the average user almost any CPU from the last 5 years is good enough for email, web and facepoop
As a man still using a Phenom 2 and who hasn't had an Intel since my 486DX2/66, i can't think there are many that should buy this chip right now. Unless you have an urgent need for >4 cores (lots of compiling/transcoding/whatever) and your current box is dead, I'd either wait for Zen or buy Intel at this point. That last part does stick in my throat a little.

I bought this processor 3 years ago, I love it, it never runs higher than 20% usage. Before I got my H100i water cooling it ran at 50-60°c but now it averages 13°c so over clocking is really easy. Believe it or not I bought for £110 from either eBuyer or Scan and the price rose some time after, for whatever reason. Great buy then and now.
Screenshot of your cpu running 13c today?

PLEASE NOTE
Cooling works by removing/replacing heat, nothing else. If your cooler, especially double fan/240mm radiator can pull enough heat away from your CPU/GPU then it will cool to lower temps than your room temp. I have a screenshot: https://gyazo.com/8f901ecc21c90649076382450e9afe48. 21 Degrees C while booting as that is the temp of my room, down to 8-13 Degrees C after the fans/watercooling has taken the heat out.
But please do tell me I've put it in my fridge, which runs at 3 Degrees C, or my Freezer which runs at -16 Degrees C.

Lol, sorry for laughing. I suppose you think if you put a thermometer in front of a fan in a closed room the temperature of the thermometer will drop too? Do me a favour and try it.

AMD stopped using actual temperature sensors after one of the Phenom lines and now uses CPU algorithms to determine CPU temperature. This is not an accurate way to measure CPU temps at lower numbers, it's only accurate at higher temps when under load. This is why you are seeing insanely low idle temps that will spike up as soon as you stress the CPU.

So no, your 8 core @ 4.7 GHz is not running at 10C'

Also, I found this CPU on ebay for £90 last year. Clocked it up to 4.7GHz with Xigmatek Aegir and Gentle Typhoon fans. Best bang for buck CPU today no doubt but AMD seem to have stepped out of the enthusiast market so your system will not be future proof with this CPU.

This includes a lot of software for free also. Amazon doesn't have anything extra included and it has no increased to a price that costs (slightly) more after delivery.

I was surprised this one wasn't getting heat, then noticed the seller has 4.7 stars over the past 12 months from only 19 ratings! I think if you edit the above to the £144 direct from Amazon deal, you'll see some heat, or certainly heat from myself. Many bulk system builders were using the i5 4460 for their entry level quad core builds, which is now only a few £ cheaper than the i5 4590, which though only a little faster on paper becomes more so when the turbo clicks in. The 4460 Processor has a base frequency of 3.2GHz and a modest turbo increase to 3.4GHz, whereas the 4590 has a base frequency of 3.3 GHz and a maximum turbo frequency of 3.7 GHz . In many real world uses you won't notice much of a difference, a very modest improvement in some gaming benchmarks on some sites, but it's certainly worth the few pounds extra, while the £144 price holds.

Used though
it will be fine even if used,
Yeh, the way silicon chips are, once they've lived a certain period (and proved they have no niggling inherent faults) they last waaaaay longer than they're useful for, unless you treat them badly, like overvolting and overheating etc.
I often buy second hand chips, never personally had a problem.
I never said used CPUs are bad just the warranty won't be the same


Intel will sort it out no matter what usually.

It's insane how quickly 'old' tech goes down in price when something new replaces it. At that resolution I think going for two 980 ti in sli will be great considering you need the high frames for 3d gaming.http://www.anandtech.com/bench/product/1493?vs=1496
Here is a nice representation of how much faster the 980 ti really is than the 780. But you do have two 780s therefore if you get perfect scaling then it would be a side grade but in reality you rarely get 2x scaling and that's relying on the driver updates to do their job and lastly the 3gb vs 6gb argument needs to also be taken into account.
Let me know what you decide to do, I'm eager to know :3
Well, after sleeping on it I have decided to order the MSI GTX 980 Ti tomorrow when it will be in stock! Some games give me ****-poor SLI Scaling if any at all at the moment and I could use a break from that plus the other half said she wouldn't kill me for buying it so that's a bonus!
Now I just need to sell my two Palit GTX 780's to recoup some of my losses X)
Will keep you posted if and when I receive the card as I'm sure you may be curious to the performance difference!
did it turn up? how is it - worth the price? :)

Waiting for it to be delivered now! (Chose economy delivery and only ordered two days ago as I had to wait for the right model to be in-stock).

I'll keep you posted, oh and if anyone wants to buy my last GTX 780 cheaply let me know :p
edit: both 780's sold!

If I bought it recently for 190, are Amazon likely to refund the difference? Or not because the price has gone up?
They will refund whatever the difference if the person you speak to wants to. Contact them.
'The price may change from time to time, normally we will not issue the price difference.
As an one time exception, I will issue the price difference for you of amount 9.64 GBP'
Tenner better than nothing. even though i paid 191 for mine (well it was for my friend not for me, so hell be happy to get a tenner back for sure:) )

Too close now to Skylake being lauched. I wonder if that is the reason for the price drops?

Prices never really drop, they go up after a new release. It was £10 less than usual, nothing ground breaking :)

Its compatible with the Kraken G10 GPU bracket, still need some ramsinks though.
Fwiw I have had these in 2 systems so far and the first one lasted about 3 years before any noise became evident. The one I have now is perfect after 2 and a bit years. I don't overclock as I don't feel the need but would recommend this or similar setup for cooling. If they make noise when you buy just return it ffs:)

IBM is a Billion Dollar Multinational Corporation... how about they donate their CPU power... who cares if they "support" this. Ridiculous sponsoring something they could actually run themselves. They lend no credibility to this cause.
Also, IBM employs hundreds of thousands of staff worldwide. Every single one of them owns either a Lenovo PC or Lenovo laptop and every single one of those has runs this program. How do I know? Because I used to work for IBM. No need to be so negative about the company just because they're a billion dollar multi-national corporation.

Not just this, but also the fact that IBM are a computing giant; and not researchers for the sort of stuff that WCG does themselves (ie: this isn't their every day to day work. They have no experience in this area) They're funding this, so the actual researchers get to do the work they do.

Would this fit my motherboard? According to CPU-z its a Asrock N68C-UCC model, but my motherboard box says its a RS485M-M :S Currently have a AMD Athlon II X2 4400 processor? (Yes i know its a very old motherboard)

any idea if i gt this its worth using the hd5450 i have too? i m building an HTPC and have the GPU already

The built in graphics of this will be much better. Not fantastic but definitely better than the HD 5450. Pair it with some high speed RAM and it'll even play some games... just!

Graphics built in to my A7-7400K are much better than the HD5450 used in my previous build, in lower end APUs they'd at least match the HD5450.

A6-6400K is also worth a look for £11 more.

Why not pay another £11 on top of that for the A6-7400K which are the replacements for A6-6400K

Direct X12 will give these a new lease of life.

That's the AMD mantra. "Just wait until devs start developing for 6 and 8 core CPUs", "Just wait until mantle comes", "Just wait for DX12".

You're much better off buying a CPU/GPU based on their current performance than you are buying into whatever lies AMD/Intel are putting out there.
Sf2rox
In 12 months when im looking to build a new rig hopefully they'll have done enough to keep Intel honest.

Not likely I'm afraid.

Intel has shown that they will take advantage of any weakness on AMD's part and will use it to extract as much money from their customers as possible. The revelations surrounding the discovery of much lower quality thermal interface paste under the heat spreader (to reduce overclockability) was a good example of this.

Its back again
Quick heads-up. My Flubit order has been dispatched, so the 4770k I ordered from Amazon will be cancelled at around 4pm GMT. Whether it goes back onto Amazon at the price of £217, I can't say, but it's worth looking for.
I love how people get in on HUKDs with the sole intention of profiteering... and then when they make a tidy sum don't declare it...
twuble
Was that Flubit offer an instant one? Off processors for me they only see to drop about £3/4..
Nope, which is why I was surprised that they gave me an offer. I used 100 Flubit points (precious, precious points!) to bring it forward and get a response within 10 hours, but I'll admit that I was surprised that they came through.

The order has been paid for and I've been given an estimated dispatch time which I think means I'm ok, if so I'll have to cancel the Amazon order; if THAT happens I'll give people a couple of hours' notice here in case it goes back into Amazon's inventory.
