The chip is a Quad-Core design with 8 threads. Integrated into the processor is Intel HD Graphics 530 which delivers mainstream-level graphics with discrete-level performance and has full support for DirectX 12 API. Intel's 6700K is fully unlocked allowing you to tune performance and obtain higher frequencies when used with Intel 100 series chipsets. Previous generation Intel processors such as the Intel Core i7-4790K processor used DDR3 memory, typically running at 1600 or 2133MHz. The Core i7 6700K have an enhanced memory controller that supports DDR4 memory, giving you a very healthy performance boost over DDR3.

As this unlocked 'K' version processor does not come with any cooling kit at all I opted for a Noctua NH-U9S heatsink, the case I'm using this in doesn't have a great deal of room and it fitted perfectly.
The performance of this processor is quite impressive, even as stock without any overclocking. I don't really intend to overclock as I find it handles everything I can throw at it at present - but if any future game releases need a bit more power I will have the option to do so over the standard 6700 and it was only a few £'s more to buy!
Paired with a Z170 chipset this makes for a very powerful and responsive pc, and editing video so much faster than my previous setup. After a 4 hour Fallout 4 gaming session the temperature barely went over 27 degrees celcius so that's also pleasing and I no longer get to hear any cooling fans!
With the forthcoming Kaby Lake processors being released, this model may drop in price and make it even more of a bargain for those looking to upgrade to Skylake. I did look at holding off for the Kaby Lake but the improvements over this processor (mainly clock speed) were very small and as I use a graphics card over the iGPU it became less attractive to me. I'm hoping this processor will last me around 5 years of happy gaming until needing an upgrade!
Back to the processor, I love that it's unlocked, and that it's very over-clockable. Most people seem to be getting somewhere between 10 and 20% on top. It's a super quick processor, perfect for my gaming system.
I've had a few issues with thermals but when installing it (again) I found give the cpu a very light giggle in the socket before placing the retention in to place helped with temps on an Asus Z270 tuf mk1 mobo
If your looking for a cooler running cpu I'd recommend the i5 series if thermals are very important
Now that im settled in around 2 months later the processor has wow'd me. Its fast and boy was it worth it. However, i am struggling to overclock this to even 4.1GHz let alone 4.5GHz without my system crashing, ive spoken to several peers on discord and tomshardware and i just couldn't figure it out. But thats no problem as its already a beast with its current clock speed. I've paired this processor with the H100i V2 and im idling at around 25'C which is nice but when overclocked and on full usage its near enough the 90'C - i don't know, maybe its me, maybe its my processor but it doesn't bother me that much!
I just upgraded from an i3 processor to this beautiful i7-6700K with overclocking capabilities and I'm not looking back. Honestly the speed and power of this thing is insane. If you're going all out with your build, and you have an extra hundred or so to shell out for one of these babies then I strongly advise that you do. It's absolute bliss to work with, and fun to know you have one of the strongest processors on the market right now.
