Overclockers are selling the retail version of this for £98
This is a good CPU for an ultra small form factor ITX emulation and old gaming build. Would run PCSX2 & Dolphin and the like at high speeds. Not really worth it for much else. The i3 8100 is better for modern gaming, and the 8400 destroys it for value at not much more. I'd personally buy an R3 1200 over this any day for general usage - and there aren't many use cases left where the G4560 isn't just as good for less (ie: where that higher speed on a dual core actually makes sense).

I'm refraining from voting. This might be a good price, but it's a good price on a silly SKU.
I haven't voted on this either as I'm not sure if it is good value when compared with newer processors.

I got this a couple of weeks ago, it's an OEM cpu, not the retail boxed version. Seeing as how neither come with a cooler, it makes no difference to me, I had an AIO water cooler just waiting.
Warranty is the main difference, boxed gets a 3 year warranty from Intel I think, the OEM cpu gets a 1 year warranty from vendor.
Worth upgrading from a G4620 ?

Not much in it looking at that. Not into overclocking so happy to keep the cheap as chips G4620.

Given that the K series chips don't come with stock coolers you're not really missing out on too much by grabbing the OEM version.

Seems unlikely that you'll kill one by overclocking it too hard if you're not a complete nutter.

Are they that cheap? They're £90 on Amazon, so that works out at you get 25% more performance for the same money. How much did you pay for your G4620?

Pretty easy to work out really.

A 8350K is £154.83 on Amazon, this 7350K is £89.99. That's a difference of 42%.

A 8350K is 39% faster than a 7350K. So the pricing does kind of reflect the performance difference, especially given the newer 8350K is a proper quad core CPU, over the 7350K dual core with hyper-threading setup.
this is for a 1151 motherboard. I do not get all of these comparisons of which suppose to be which. Then buy an intel 2600k for less than £50 on ebay and you get 60% more power than this one. Also there are some nice xeon 6 cores x58 for a tenner on ebay. CEX does sell a 4820k for £50 or a nice 6 core 3930k for £60. The mentioned stuff is a lot better than many of the overpriced crap we buy now or suggested by others in here.

Or just upgrade to Ryzen.

Not a fair comparison as the 8350k would also require a new motherboard.

I picked one up cheap before magazines stated they were perfect for a cheap build and demand rose. I paid £68.

correct, others were suggesting something different and I pointed out that there is better than what they suggest and for less.

I think you might be being too subtle, some people have suggested CPUs that are not compatible for someone looking at a Kaby Lake CPU, and you are countering by suggesting even more inappropriate CPUs.
no, I am not suggesting anything unsuitable to the people looking for a 1151 cpu.I was only suggesting something cheaper and better than what the other people was suggesting inappropriately because obviously they do not know what they are talking about.

Demand hasn’t risen for that CPU, what has happened is the same thing that happens to all discontinued products, they temporarily go up in price because if someone wants that exact chip they’ll be willing to pay slightly more for it as they’re not made now.
Not convinced this a good price at all considering it's only a dual core.
Why anyone would buy a NEW dual core (even with HT) in 2018 is beyond me, especially on a dead platform.

If you must stay on 1151, Go to CEX and get an i5 6600 for the same price and much better performance.

Otherwise, you should be buying Ryzen for a new build.

buying a second hand i5 6600@£130 from cex does not make sense. This one after OC is more powerful even so it is not my type of cpu

Youre looking at the K model, the non-K 6600 (£90) is a much better buy.

Also, you need to look at the whole context in which an i3 is ever considered an upgrade:

Firstly, you need a Z170 or Z270 (enthusiast grade) chipset to overclock. If you have one of these chipsets, you are almost certainly already using an i5 or i7.

Secondly, most people who consider an i3 an upgrade will be on non-overclockable chipsets such as H110 or B150, or on OEM systems such as Advent/Lenovo. Hence there is no point getting a K chip.

Finally, doesnt matter how you cut it, 4 physical cores give more performance than 2 cores + HT.

my apologies, I gave a very quick look and did not notice it was the K. Just about then but you are right, the 6600 is better. £90 is for cex second hand otherwise is at over £160 brand new
