Product Description

Product Description

Intel's 4th gen processor codename: Haswell offers superior performance over the previous generation Ivybridge by up to 10% clock for clock. This astounding performance boost results in performance improvements in multi-tasking, encoding, gaming and multithreaded applications. Intel's 4th generation processor has improved PCI-Lane 3.0 bandwidth which helps further boost performance of latest generation 3 graphics cards for the ultimate gaming experience.

For overclocking enthusiasts, Intel's 4th gen CPU has improved memory overclocking support, with up to and beyond 3000MHz possible with the very best memory kits. Memory bandwidth is critically important to Haswell compared to previous generations. High frequency memory performance significantly improves encoding, gaming and benchmarking tasks.

The biggest leap in Intel's Haswell processor is the on-board graphics which is now up to 2.6x faster than previous HD4000 found in the Ivybridge CPU. What this means is these latest processors can actually play the latest games in HD with low/medium settings applied. Of course if you want to experience True HD gaming at maximum details then a dedicated graphics card is still a must.

There are two words in your vocabulary that should never meet-Game and Over. You love playing, and you love winning, so you demand unmatched performance, the ability to customize your rig, and features that put you in control of the action. With Intel technology, you step into a heart-pounding experience.

Intel technology helps you keep up with your creativity with unmatched and customizable performance, and feature's that give you full control to optimize your workflow and maximize your productivity. So keep imagining, keep creating, and take your inspiration to the limit-because the only thing more amazing than Intel technology is what you'll do with it.

This is a six-core, hyper-threaded (effectively 12 core) CPU with quad-channel RAM, and double the PCIe lanes over the more common main-stream CPUs (such as the Haswell i7 4770K. It's a bit more expensive, but for some applications, this is a much better choice.

I prefer an E CPU for things like Photoshop, because having double the RAM bandwidth lets you manipulate ultra-large images (lots of layers) more readily. Quad channel RAM means you can get a 16GB configuration using 4GB DIMMs, which run at faster cycle times than 8GB DIMMs. An 8 DIMM motherboard can hold 32GB using 4GB DIMMs. Moreover, if you use 8GB DIMMs, you can get 64GB - something that's not possible with a mainstream CPU. Only an E CPU can address 64GB.

If you wanted to run two top-of-the-line video cards at their fastest, then an E CPU is the better choice, because it lets you run both cards at x16.

I built two machines using a 3960X and a 3930K, and they were fine PCs. The 4930K runs a bit faster than the 3930K, yet cooler - I have worked this CPU hard, and have never managed to exceed 40 degrees C (that's using a Noctua NH-D14 - recommended).

Superb CPU. The six cores mean plenty of processing power for and need, and my particular one overclocks (on all 6 cores) faultlessly at 4.5GHz! There is no guarantee that yours will be as good at overclocking as mine, it varies from chip to chip, but I would be surprised if you didn't get a reasonable level of overclocking from this CPU.

I used mine in a custom PC build with an ASUS Rampage IV Extreme motherboard, 16GB of RAM and 2 Nvidia GTX 780 graphics cards. Works brilliantly!

I decided on this processor when made the decision to upgrade from my 920 i7 quad core that I had been using for the last 4 years. I chose this cpu with a ROG Rampage Black Edition mb & I was not disapointed. All the processing power you will ever need but at a slightly higher cost, an expensive processor but worth every penny. Decided to get most of my build from Amazon & I was impressed with the super fast delivery & excellent customer service I have received for all the parts purchased.

I bought this to make my own PC. This was the highest spec chip for the money I wanted to spend. I get 7.9 on the Windows 7 test and that's as standard ie not overclocked. I haven't tried overclocking yet as I don't need it. I have the capability however with the MB reviewed separately.
It handles video editing really fast which was my prime reason for changing my PC.

Use it mainly for video editing and can handle the 50fps HD with ease. Am running windows 8.1 and 64GB of RAM and mainly CS5 and it is extremely fast.

This is a wonderful CPU for those who need it or would benefit from the perks of the extra cores. The thermal performance of these chips is reflected wonderfully by the price; the die is soldered onto the IHS, meaning that there is increased thermal conductivity between the surface and the external heatsink being used. I can run this chip at 4.6GHz easy with an air cooling Hyper 412s with dual Noctua NF-F12 push-pull method running at ~300rpm and the temperatures rarely rise above 45c.

This is a chip I would recommend to anyone who knows where and when this would be useful, and would say to people that unless you will trully use its features, save the money and stick with the Z platform, you will likely get the same performance in the things that you do.

I have had this for a year now in a system based on an Asus X79-Deluxe board runing overclocked at 4.05 GHz, it was higher (4.35 I think) but became unstable when video rendering so slowed it down a little. It has been perfectly stable since.
