After deliberating for over 2 months which way to go, Haswell 5820k, 4970k or the i7 6700K I'm happy to report I seemd to have jumped into the right camp.
Initially the 6700k was given some flak for cost and maybe not matching up with it's earlier compatible motherboards etc, however with the Skylake branded motherboards and a better understanding of what exactly the new 6th gen i7 has in it's arsenal, I believe it's a future cpu worth the hours and hours of googling and comparing.
No stock fan included, which is no loss as I know of no one to date that has used a stock fan in the last few years.
Pretty little box, slots into board and boom, in the words of He-Man "I have the power".

I thought I would give my two cents after helping to build my brothers new PC for the Christmas period. To provide some context he has paired it with a pair 980Ti’s G1 Gaming cards, on the Asus Z170-A Motherboards with a pair of G-Skill Ripjaws at 3200 Mhz and cooled by what he says is “temporarily borrowing” my Noctua NH-D15 (an amazing cooler by the way, which I suspect I may not see again!). For reference we also played around and did some comparisons with my PC which currently runs a 4790k to see how these two often compared members stack up.

First of all the 6700k comes in a rather colorful box compared with what my 4790k came in, but it also feels a lot lighter. The reason is pretty apparent as Intel does not include their stock cooler with the 6700k or 6600k SKU’s, much like the X99 chips. I believe however they still include the stock cooler with the locked variants. The lack of a stock cooler is not the biggest of deals as there are plenty of aftermarket coolers which will run alot cooler and quieter, with some cheaper examples being something like the Coolermaster Evo 212 Evo for more mild use and up to the NH-DH15 or Corsair H110i’s etc for those wanting to sqeeze more. I imagine most buying a £300 odd CPU of the unlocked variant would likely be purchasing their own aftermarket solution of some kind anyways. In addition you get the simple Intel manual, 3 year limited warranty information and of course the intel sticker.

This lovely monster of a CPU itself runs at a nice 4Ghz across all the cores and will boost up to 4.2 Ghz based on the task at hand.

This is not a technical review - it's a straight up opinion review without any facts or stats.

I love it. I've used Intel processors my whole life, and upgrading to the 1151 socket wasn't a mistake.
This processor is fantastic. It's ultra fast with 4 cores running at default 4Ghz... Which I now run at 4.3Ghz (you could probably get it way higher than this, if you know what you're doing).
Unfortunately they don't currently do any 6 core 1151 socket CPU's currently, otherwise I'd of probably took the dive on that - although this is right now the best you can get.

The box it comes in, I have to admit is a little underwhelming.
You look at it and say "WHAT!? I spent 300 quid on this?!"
But yes. And you won't regret it.

It doesn't come with a fan like most other CPU's do - but I guess you should probably be water cooling this CPU anyway.

Be sure that if you buy this CPU, then the motherboard you get supports 1151 sockets too!

I'd recommend this CPU to anyone who can afford it and wants a really high-end, super fast CPU that is easily overclock-able to make even faster.

Amazing CPU, Overclockers a lot better than my 4790k and is nice and cool under my EK Predator 240 AIO :)

Price is a bit high but I've had nothing bad to say about it so far.

After much deliberation I settled with the i7 6700k and I am so glad I did!

Cost vs Performance is cracking and this barely breaks a sweat, running a 4.6ghz, under a Dark Rock Pro 3. Over clocks very well, so far, on air and I am yet to give it a thrashing!

I have put this in my Asrock z170 OC so more testing will be carried out to see how far i can safely push on air.

Highly recommended!

Excellent little chip here.

Replaced my FX6300 (overclocked massively), and the difference is night and day.

Stays pretty cool, but still make sure you have a decent cooler if you want to overclock. (4.3ghz,no voltage, H100, 72C)

Superb performance, however £307 is an awful lot of money for a CPU. Hopefully AMD will get their act together with the new Ryzen range and the competition will drive prices to a more affordable level. Bought this for floating point performance and it delivers. Dropping a star for high price. Highly recommend Noctua cooler with this (NH-C14S).
