5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome and STILL a heavy hitter!, 31 Dec 2013

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Intel Core I7-2600K 3400MHz 8MB Cache LGA1155 Desktop CPU boxed (Personal Computers)
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!
