This process is a real high point in Intel's processor creation like the Q6600.

I've been using this since 2012 and in my opinion there has been little reason to buy a newer process in a desktop computer since. The processor to this day offers brilliant performance, better than the current day i5s and not far behind what the newer i7s are doing. I think this is mostly because intel has focused more on laptop, power saving architecture but not on pure, raw processing power.

To add to this, I do not think the new broadwell processors are likely to offer much of a speed increase for desktop users, but there may well be some improvements with Skylake which will not be far behind with all the delays on broadwells release.

If you have a 1155 socket motherboard and want a quick upgrade, you couldn't do much better that this for the price.

This cpu provides fast multithreaded performance with dynamic power and performance management in a 95W TDP package. I don't overclock, placing a higher value on power efficiency, silence and reliability. This cpu hits the spot in all areas. You can use it as the basis for a lowish budget system, or marry to high spec components for very high performance. Mine now drives a 2560x1600 monitor through a reference GTX680 and allows lots of Skyrim eye candy! I started by using the bundled intel fan cooler, and it was hard to tell the system was running (at that time with a 14cm fan in an enermax psu, and a fanless 6770 graphics card). I've now installed a Corsair H50 water cooler. It doesn't make the system quieter but it changes the frequency of the noise by losing the small stock intel cooler's fan. Finally, I'm running this on a Z68 board, and I've tried to get the 2600k's integrated graphics working with the PCIE graphics controlled by the Virtu software. It does work in both configurations (ie cpu graphics master and graphics card master) but I had enough in game crashes to switch the virtu software off in the end. You may have more luck than me.

Straight off I'm going to say this probably the best processor that you can buy pound for pound. The performance is absolutely stunning and for this low price, you really cant go wrong with this buy.

Technology in this CPU is perfected, they've had the sandy bridge architecture out for a while and know what's going to perform well. The performance of this thing is phenomenal! The highly four cores really do speed through anything you throw at it and the hyperthreading makes big tasks fast as well. Video rendering for example will only take a fraction of the time it would with processors just a few years old. This speed is also GREATLY boosted by the Virtu software that uses both on-board Intel graphics and an additional graphics card when transcoding.

It also overclocks very easily and well indeed, they had an old age woman overclocking it in one of their adverts just to show this. You can easily reach a 4.0GHz overclock up from the standard 3.4GHz with an air cooler and 4.5 at least with liquid cooling - all this just by changing one setting in the BIOS. The hyperthreading is an old technology reborn; it splits the current physical cores into two meaning they can both handle different threads of work given.

The chip runs very cool in my computer idling in the 30C region with a Zalman - CPU Heatsink + 135mm Fan Kit - PWM - CNPS9900 MAX - Blue LED cooler. The low-power design makes it more efficient to run when your computer is built that a older Intel or AMD based machine too. This translates to less money being spent on electricity to waste at heat energy.

I'll be blunt I bought this thing back in Jun 2011 so my CPU is approaching the the 3 year old threshold when I take the next year or two to save for my next machine, however I will be in no rush to do so as the newer CPU's even those with the K and extreme branding do not like to be overclocked to the extent that this one can even if they are more "power efficient". I prefer raw power over energy efficient any day and even Haswell struggles to overclock where as this CPU can hit 5ghz with nothing more than a good air cooler. I have mine water cooled at 4.4Ghz and it's not even breaking a sweat but rather sitting there rendering 3D models and Games quite happily.

To sum up if you're on a budget (or even without a budget!) and want a great Intel CPU that is WILLING to be overclocked then this is your best choice!

By John Bee on 7 Feb. 2012
This CPU is astonishing! I have built about ten home computers over the years, always being careful to balance performance and cost, the result has always been a nice little increase in performance, but with the Sandybridge i7 2600K, the increase in performance is dramatic. Suprisingly, the boot time for Windows 7 has not speeded up but once there, everything happens at the click of the mouse. Running some PC diagnostics indicates that my new PC is up to five times faster than my old core duo. There are options to tinker with the performance of the CPU, I might try that later, at the moment I am very happy as it is. If you are only working on light applications, I suggest you save your money and go for the i5 or even the i3, but if you into gaming or video, this is the one to get at the moment!
