Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Processor Great for gaming and you can save some money if like me you're not interested in overclocking. 25 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by i5 4690 with FSX SE my low cost FSX system using a i5 4690 with standard cooling.. Z97P MBO.. 8GB Ram (16 GB13,3330 9.9.9.24) 250GB SSD an old Nvidia GT610 with old screen running at 1280x1024 Running FSX Steam with VFR photo scenery on max. settings. UK airports. Autogen and aircraft settings at 80% I set FPS at 35, see no point in running at faster rate,i get no stutters CPU core temps 45-50 deg. I am satisfied with my system 02 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Value - Good product I used this processor for my upgrade, I like my games old and new....I paired it with a GTX 750 (which was already in my old board) I used 8 gigs or ram. I tested it out on Crysis to see how it performed, everything maxed out it ran the game like a dream...so in short if you want a decent powerful CPU and are not into overclocking, this CPU is just the ticket. 09 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super Processor Fantastic choice of CPU, its the current sweet spot for price/usability (for intel CPUs) if you don't need Hyper-threading, and can afford more than an i3/low end i5 and are looking for a seriously good all round desktop CPU then this is the place to be looking. Its fast, efficient, not power hungry, and fairly cool on stock cooler, though may be worth investing in after market if you worry about temps, though replacing the stock TIM for quality TIM is cheaper and quicker and saves you 1-3 deg on avg, there are some great offerings in the cooler market that will help keep your baby cool for not a lot of cash in some cases, just do your research. In general, the 4690/K is a fantastic CPU to build your system around, you wont be disappointed. 22 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Intel CPU. The Intel Core i5 4690 cpu, is powerful for general computing tasks, good for gaming, and my cpu has stable even clocks and temps between cores, which has been a bug bear for Haswell class cpu's. The turbo boost is a slight gimmic of boosting to 3.9 ghz, as you will only achieve around 3.8 ghz at most no matter what you set your Bios to. Some would get the unlocked option, but Intel in their wisdom hacked 2 cpu features from this cpu, which could be important in future processing features. This is the best option i think for performance to price ratio for a locked Haswell i5 cpu. I got this for under £174 which is a good buy in my book. 01 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Niiiiiiiice Lots of reviews recommend this. Overclocks itself, runs quick anyway. Nice CPU. 13 February 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by i5 4690 Upgraded with new motherboard and i5 4690, and frame rate for gaming now at maximum compared to previous chip giving lowest setting so vast improvement. No reliability issues and installation straightforward apart from one tricky wiring issue. Cost was reasonable for both chip and board at just over 200 and the scansure insurance gave added confidence for the rebuild. Scan customer service gave us the site for Windows 7 reinstall to complete the task. 28 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Quick All Working too As RAM goes it works. My PC is performing well, very well. So all good. 06 October 2014

Socket type?

On here it says the i5 is a s1150 socket, is this any different to the lga 1150? I've never seen the s version before so just making sure. Would this still work with a lga 1150 motherboard?

Answer: 
"S" before 1150 refers to " Socket ", LGA is the name of the socket and 1150 is the number of pins used.

Answer: 
LGA 1150 is the same as s1150, the s = socket...Also known as sH3...so LGA1150=s1150=sH3

This CPU will fit in all s1150 and should work in all 1150 boards, but make sure you check with your Mobo manufacturer first as some of the 'older' chipsets (ie pre H/Z97) may require an update to the BIOS/firmware to run the CPU correctly.

If this is the case, update the board as per the instructions from the manufacturer and you should be good to go.
