Exceptional Performance
The Intel® Core™ i5 6600K boasts a 3.5 GHz base frequency and 3.9 GHz turbo frequency, the processor is also built on a 14 nm process, with a 95 W maximum TDP. The chip is a Quad-Core design with 4 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 6600K 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 Core i7 4790K processor used DDR3 memory, typically running at 1600 or 2133MHz. The Core i5 6600K has an enhanced memory controller that supports DDR4 memory, giving you a very healthy performance boost over DDR3.

Intel® Core™ i5 is a brand name applies to several families of desktop and laptops, The Core™ i5 brand targets the more mainstream markets for both desktop and laptop computers, and is distinguished from the entry-level Core™ i3 and the business and high-end consumer Core™ i7.

Rated 5 out of 5 by seams good this far seams to be a good bit of kit this far haven't started to play game yet thou so only time will tell 12 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product, competitive pricepoint, excellent service. Product arrived in good time, very well protected. Price was competitive even considering shipping costs. Shipping tracking and emails were timely ad useful. Installation damage cover on CPUs was a nice touch for first-time builders. Cheers guys! 19 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by good strong processor havent had a chance to fully test the power of the processor but i have noticed a massive decrease in boot times and general load tiimes of software and programs 05 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by well worth the money Ok So i was building a budget unit for my parents as is the case you start looking for corner cutting parts to help save more money well this was my last cut back that brought me int budget and i was not really hold much hope for but it far exceeded anything i expecting and even made me consider using it in another build but for that I'll keep you posted 27 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Well priced for performance I wanted a good processor for a decent price. I am not bothered about over-clocking, so this was perfect for me. 14 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great bit of kit! Cant fault this at all, its perfect for a system that is needed to be quick and stable, but not being pushed past its limits. It runs cool and fast. 13 June 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Solid Performance & Affordable After wanting to upgrade my processing power to run modern games & music production programs, I chose to go with the Intel Core i5 4440. As you would expect, Intel's craftsmanship is always top-notch and the processor delivers enough power to run most intensive applications out there. I'm very happy with its performance and it has definitely been a step-up from the dual core range of processors I've been using. However, take note that this processor is locked so you won't be able to overclock it over 3.3GHz. This may be off-putting to a large chuck of gamers who are looking to push their systems to the limit. Personally, the next time I come to buy a new processor, I will keep my eye out for any unlocked versions. With being only slightly more costly, the unlocked products will provide more flexibility to users' needs. 18 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good processor I purchased this for a mini-ITX gaming rig, and paired it with a Radeon R9 270X. Overall, I am very happy with its performance; I'm graphics card limited in every game I've tested so far, including Battlefield 4. So this processor is more than sufficient for a mid-range gaming rig, without having to spend more on an unlocked processor. The supplied low-profile stock cooler is surprisingly effective, the chip doesn't exceed 60*C under Prime95 (using a somewhat more aggressive fan curve) in my Case (Bitfenix Prodigy), but may get hotter in other cases. However the fan is rather loud at higher RPMs. This processor is multiplier locked, so you can't overclock it to a significant degree, but most decent boards will be able to force it to permanently turbo to 3.3 GHz on all four cores. Either way, it's got more than enough power to run modern games paired with a mid-tier GPU such as GTX 760 or R9 270X. A really nice little Quad-core with plenty of horsepower for mid-range gaming. Could be a little cheaper when compared to some AMD offerings, but makes up for it in performance. 06 February 2014
