Best core i5!7/27/2013
Intel does it again. A very fast, powerful and fairly cool running chip. I matched it with an ASUS P8Z77-V motherboard and Windows 8 Pro and have been enjoying trouble free computing. Intel rocks! Unless you are building a really basic machine OR an absolute monster where you are going to spend THOUSANDS, than this is the best processor out there for the best price.
The I5 is a great gaming CPU. No issues with my CPU so far. It even runs much cooler with my old Corsair H50 than I expected it to.
The best CPU3/23/2013
For about 0 to 20 dollars more than the non-K version, you get a major improvement in the CPU core and the ability to overclock the multiplier and front side bus. So if your an average user without an extra graphics card, the GPU is worth it. If you are a more advanced user, you can get benefit from the GPU even if you have a dedicated card and overclock.
Intel Core i511/5/2012
This core i5 processor is a good fit with the Intel DH77KC mother board. The processor price was fair, it installed easily with the included fan, and is a significant improvement over my last build four years ago. Have been a Buy.com customer for too many years to want to remember and they have never disappointed me.
What a chip!10/2/2012
First PC build, wasn't sure about overclocking, wasn't sure about i7 vs i5. Took the plunge and at the price, I couldn't be happier! On air, 4.6Ghz overclock, no problem at 1.17V with a weekend of tweaking. WIth an ASUS P8Z77-V LK, Kingston XMP memory, Crucial M4 SSD, and GTX670. Even running Windows 8 RTM, and I HAVE NO COMPLAINTS. Its a dev box I have been dreaming about.
