lowest price for the over clockable i5 7600k! brilliant chip and 7th gen so Kabylake tech , also yes it is a quad core at 3.8Ghz with 4.2GHz turbo so excellent for gaming!!

THE NEXT GENERATION OF CPU DESIGN AND TECHNOLOGYThe power and performance of CPU’s in recent years have grown ten-fold. The 7th Gen CPU’s from Intel bring new processor technologies and enhance those that already existed. You could be missing out on more CPU capabilities than you know, such as uncompromised gaming, while you stream, chat and share with your community, stunning Ultra HD 4K HDR premium content and the ability to transport into VR experiences.

Nice I'll stick with my 6600k for now running at 4.6Ghz as it's easily meeting my needs. These processors are total beasts

Heat! My 3570k has been OC'd at 4.5Ghz since 2013 and I have not once felt the need to switch it out yet. I will have upgraded my GPU 3x since getting it, worth every penny!

Intel

Still on a 2500k myself @ 4.2ghz - Runs most stuff decently with a GTX 1060

Although the i5 8400 isn’t overclockable it’s about the same price and a better buy with 2 extra cores

I recently ascended to this excellent cpu.

my 2500k had served me well but it was time to retire the faithful beast.


heaaaat

maybe you haven't felt the need to upgrade because Intel's generation on generation have been so lpathetic in the last 10 years

I have on of these great cpu been thinking about putting a 7700k in tho to match the gpu card i have card i have

Planning a build to upgrade my 10 year old Q6600 which is still currently going strong at 3ghz (only had to change the PSU and i don't game) anyone else still got one of these? I believe it was the first quad core processors at a reasonable price. Has 4gb ram and an Asus P5kE (something like that) was a beast back in 2008 and only cost around £600

I ran my XPS 420 with a q6600 until last year, best pc purchase i ever made, bought for 600 and even managed to sell it for 160. Swapped to a lenovo ts140 I got cheap with e3-1226, added 6gb 1060 and its been awesome too

Exactly this. Not much point buying this anymore, unless you would rather overclock. Even still the 8400 will probably outperform it in games.

Drop a 2600k/2700k or even a 3770k in there and overclock
Will give you a fair few fps in games.

In general I’d agree with one massive exception. Sandybridge made the previous generation look like toys.
Likewise the Q Core 2 Duo based processors set a healthy tradition too.
Best make that 2 exceptions

I've put together this quick build as well, mATX again so you have this mobo:
ASRock z370m:
scan.co.uk/pro…usc

at 106.49

couple that with either the:
i3-8350k over clockable quad core @ £163.49
scan.co.uk/pro…box

or the i5-8400 (Not over clockable) 6 core @ £189.49
scan.co.uk/pro…-cp

so gamers go i3 and everyone doing graphics or design or rendering go i5 until its upgrade time...


what you think?
Edited by: "Mr_G13" 26th Nov

Bad buy. If you really want a 4 core/4 thread CPU, the i3 8350K is at least £10 cheaper (£169.99 on overclockers and in stock) and you'll at least have some semblance of an upgrade path with a Z370 board, even if you only ditch the i3 for an i5 8600K in a couple years.

Can't really recommend this unless you want to upgrade from say, a Pentium G4560, and even then it'd be a waste because you likely wouldn't have an X270 motherboard to even overclock this CPU on.

Eh, not really. You'd need a LGA2066 board to put it on, which are around £200 for an entry level board. For CPU and board, you could pay £377ish for that, or £280ish for an I3 8350K and Z370 board. The latter also has better IPC and will clock higher.
