Date Issued: 5th Jan 2017

It's hard to believe that almost 17 months have passed since Intel unleashed the Core i7-6700K to champion the company's 14nm Skylake architecture. The sixth-generation Core processor has held the fort ever since, and with little in the way of competition from AMD, Intel hasn't been in a hurry to introduce a seventh-generation successor.

The Intel Core i7-6700K has sated the appetite of enthusiast gamers since August 2015, but if a quad-core chip just doesn't tickle your fancy, you might have been twiddling your thumbs in anticipation of a new HEDT (High End Desktop) part.

Intel Core i5 6600K and Core i7 6700K
Date Issued: 26th Aug 2015

Intel generally follows a tick-tock philosophy for new processor launches. The tick represents a shrinking of the manufacturing process - 32nm to 22nm, for example - while the tock is indicative of a new architecture based on the leading process of that time. This has been the case since 2007.

New 4th Generation CPUs
Date Issued: 9th May 2014

Intel launched a bevy of Haswell Core processors last June. Presented in a LGA1150 form factor and therefore physically different to the LGA1155 Ivy Bridge processors of the year before, new chipsets were also launched to support these new chips.

Date Issued: 9th Sep 2013

Intel's consumer CPU focus is clearly on the 4th Generation Core Processor Family, codenamed Haswell, which launched in June of this year. Offering a smattering of extra performance over last-gen Ivy Bridge but with energy efficiency very much to the fore, you'd be forgiven for thinking the range-topping Core i7-4770K is the meatiest chip around.

Date Issued: 30th Apr 2012

If there's one thing we should know about Intel processor technology, it's that it progresses like clockwork. We see a new fabrication process every two years (45nm in 2008, 32nm in 2010, 22nm in 2012, and so on) accompanied by a relentless Tick Tock release schedule. For those unfamiliar with Intel parlance, let's expand on the latter.

Intel launched the consumer-oriented Core i7 900-series processors back in November 2008, and the chip giant has known that it's been on to a winner with Nehalem, the codename for the underlying architecture. This is the reason we've seen little innovation on Core i7, and pricing has remained relatively steady since launch.

Date Issued: 20th Oct 2008

Over the course of the last year or so we’ve seen GHz become less of a focus when it comes to processors. Instead, we’re seeing a shift towards processors that do more work per clock, have larger caches, are more power efficient, and of course we’ve seen dual-core processors hit the market. So what is dual-core all about, and how does it weigh up compared to single-core?

Date Issued: 20th Oct 2008

It’s been a long time since MHz were the only part of a CPU’s specification that concerned people. Manufacturers take different approaches to CPU design, even when using the same architecture. That means for example, at the same clock speed, an Intel and AMD processor will deliver different performance.

It’s all those and more, but none would be much use without a means of connecting said components in an efficient manner. That’s where your humble motherboard comes in. Its job is to ensure that all devices can communicate correctly, and the beating heart of any motherboard is the chipset it’s based upon.

The modern PC is potentially a mass of heat output and heat production hot spots. With CPUs rated at more than 100W of heat output, single graphics boards carrying similar ratings (and people want to run two!), multiple hard drives the norm, lots of memory and mainboards covered in heatpipes to combat toasty core logic and PWM circuits, a PC appreciably warming up a room when it’s working hard is no joke.

Watercooling
Date Issued: 19th Jun 2008

Watercooling for the PC has been around for years in some form or another, for at least as long as Scan have been in business, with basic physics defining why you want to use it. That means for air cooling, to cope with increasing temperature in the heatsink you need to move the air across it faster. That is why thermostatically controlled fans in your PC will turn faster the hotter something gets.

Akasa TIM-Clean CPU and Heat Sink Pad/Grease Cleaning Solution is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It does what its meant to What can you say it cleans off thermal paste easily without smearing.
Date published: 2018-09-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Akasa TIM-Clean Well, What's to say, It does a great job of cleaning the old gunk of your CPU & Heat sinks, Price & quantity are good and lasts for ages. I have also found it is great for removing stains and sticky residues left by stickers & logos etc, Even managed to remove ink stains from a shirt sleeve, Although you do have to realise that using it for purposes other than what it is designed for is entirely at your own risk.
Date published: 2015-12-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Value for money If you regularly or occasionally build and repair TIM goes a long way and has a long shelf life. It is a low viscosity cleaner and leaves my cpus spotless. Due to its very low viscosity, be careful to drop it onto the cpu directy as it could spill out and go underneath into the socket.
Date published: 2015-04-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect The fluid worked really well, instructions were easy to follow. Perfect product and more than enough for several builds to come.
Date published: 2015-02-27
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent cleaner Does a grand job of shifting old thermal paste. only requires a drop on a cotton bud dabbed onto the surface to be cleaned and left for a minute or 2, then wipe away the worst with the same bud. then use a lint free cloth, (I tore up a coffee filter) with another spot of Tim-Clean fluid on it. 125 ml will last for 100's of applications. The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is that the bottle could have a better nozzle, if you don't hold the cloth/bud tight against the hole a lot of fluid could be wasted.
Date published: 2015-01-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from good cleaning solution A must have product when removing your CPU or GPU heatsink.
Date published: 2014-12-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like ronseal Does what it says on the tin (ok, bottle) ... cleans the old thermal compound off yer cpu / apu / gpu / cooler. Worked very well on the masses of grey sludge I found under my stock AMD cooler. Took a couple of applications to get my APU completely clean but when I had finished it looked like brand new. Need to clean TIM off your PC bits? Get a bottle of this ;)
Date published: 2014-04-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cuts through Thermal grease like it was nothing Used it today on some old Intel thermal paste on the stock heatsink and completely cleaned the surfaces on both the heatsink and the CPU, leaving a nice finish. Smells like oranges as well, but can dry your skin fast, so wash as soon as you're finished with it.
