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.

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.

Still going strong to this day. First bought in November 2011 (at the same price of review: £239), still highly competitive with today's CPU market.

Considering the price of this has been at a standstill since it's release, you can tell how well it holds it's value despite being a 4 year old processor. I personally run this chip on a Z68 board with 16GB RAM+GTX680, and the CPU overclocked to 4.8GHz with he help of a hydro-AIO. It's been like this since I first installed it all those years back. Zero issues with running (apart from me messing up the overclock by going too far, but that's user-error).

As for performance, it's a work horse. Primarily for gaming, it doesn't break a sweat (even with 2015 games). No slowdowns or issues, this CPU is gold if you can get a hold of one. Similarly, I've used it for level design in Unreal 3.0 SDK, ETQW SDK, Source Hammer SDK. Alongside productivity apps such as Sony Vegas 13.0 and Adobe Photoshop CS6, Handbrake (video conversion). Top performance on all merits, no cons.

Technical details/spec/Info:
Power (full system): Full load: 350w, Idle: 95w
TDP: 95w
Temps (YMMV): 35c Idle, 68c Full load

5/5 - Don't think i'll be upgrading this piece for another few years! Just wish motherboard technology

The i7-2600K is the last of Intel's quad core generation of chips; and they definitely saved their best chip until last. So, after a long run of chips which never quite lived up to their hype, the 2600K is truly blazingly fast, and I'd definitely not be in the slightest bit be interested in their hex core chips because this one is, frankly, THAT brilliant. Now, I know what you're thinking - why should I buy this quad core when the hex core is around the corner? Good question, save that the first generation of hex cores should be considered as a 'trial run' for the later generation, just as these 2600K's are the perfect best, albeit last in the quad core release line, after their over-hyped earlier Q6600's, i7 920's etc.

So you're buying Intel's most perfected quad core chip, as opposed to your waiting to buy the first generation chips which will undoubtedly be overtaken by later released hex cores. Thus, you should buy the best of something while you can (and look at just how quickly Intel pull off chips from the market when it suits them to do so!) rather than wait for the un-perfected first gen of hex cores. Surely that makes sense to you as it does to me?

Past chip release history guarantees that, at best, it'll take well over 5 years before they're even close to releasing a chip which smokes these utterly brilliant 2600k's at everything. And I was never as happy with a chip as I am with these 2600k's. Mine is running at around 30 degree while idle and barley hits 70 degrees on full load with after-market cooling Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus Cooler.
