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".
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.Read more ›
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.

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

What to say than INTEL i7 6700K :D
Your limit is cooling solution so pick wisely if in mood for heavy overclocking.
Good price tag. Great product.
What can I say that already hasn't been said about this CPU? If I had complaint about anything is the fact that there is no fan supplied and the i7 sticker is lame, but that's... Read morePublished 22 days ago by Buddyarrows
I feel I kind of lost the silicon lottery - I've only managed to cook it up to 4.6 ghz on nearly 1.4V and it keeps heating up. I'm not sure if it's 100% stable. Read morePublished 23 days ago by Kinga Dulka
Awesome super fast processor. Internal graphics is a nice bonus too!Published 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
Very good processor. Just watch out for very fast RAM. Skylake doesn't like overclocking RAM to 3000Mhz or more. I had some problems and decided to set up RAM to 2933Mhz. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Kacper
