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.

Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great CPU Have used this mainly for gaming, but this thing just handles everything in its stride, also the temps are low on stock cooler. Great delivery from Scan, they handle everything great. 15 May 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent This processor combined with a dedicated graphics card has enabled me to achieve modern day gaming 10 May 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fast Skylake iCore 5 CPU Great price, great performance - This CPU handles everything that you can throw at it. IT can also be overclocked. 26 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by very powerful Windows runs very smoothly and games are much faster. 12 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent CPU, but not for quality graphics. Having used third party cooling solutions for previous builds, I was a little reluctant to use the stock Intel cooler. No problem - easy to install and works extremely well. Temperature at idle is 22C and using a stress test (CPU-Z and Core Temp) the temp reached 44C. Very pleased. 31 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great cool cpu for everyday use and gaming This skylake i5 6500 cpu is great, reasonably priced processor for everyday use and gaming. On my current setup (Core V21 case, review available under the product) with Hyper 212 cooler this cpu while idle runs in lower 20-s celsius. Under moderate use (watching twitch streams, browsing internet while having different programs running, downloading etc) the cpu remains in lower 30-s celsius. While gaming and heavy use cpu has remained for me between below 40-50 celsius depending how heavily cpu is being used. At start when i saw those numbers i was sure something is broken, sensor or something like that as i was used to seeing temperatures in 70-80 celsius on mid range cpus. Turns out it is one nice cool chip. As i don't overclock i welcome the low temperatures to prolong the life of my hardware. Performance wise it is enough for heavy gaming, paired with my ASUS GTX 960 turbo i can play majority of games 60+ fps on max settings at 1080p. Some games fps it drops to 40ish but that can be solved with better gpu. All in all i would recommend this cpu, it works perfectly for everyday tasks and gaming. Can't vouch for photo and video editings but i believe it'll do fine, especially for the price. It did come with stock cooler as seen on picture. 05 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by New Processor Upgraded from a x2 Athlon , massive improvement as expected. 28 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great price/performance For me, the best balance of price and performance and heat. An upgrade from a sandy bridge core i5, arguably not much difference in general windows PC use, but quicker for games, video transcoding etc. 26 November 2015

Does it come with a stock cooler

As I'll be buying this for a htpc setup, was wondering if it comes with one of those stock Intel cpu coolers or I'll have to get an aftermarket one.

Many thanks,

Answer: 
All Motherboards running the Z,H,B 100 series chipsets should be compatible with this CPU. If you are not interested in overclocking and don't think you will need lots of PCIe/USB port use, it comes down to which motherboard features you need straight out of the box, or the colour scheme for the inside of your case if it will be on show.

Answer: 
Hello,

There is no direct answer, it depends on other factors such as how hot the room temperature is, the airflow from the other components/case and where case fans are situated.

The stock cooler will generally be fine in any case unless it's under extreme conditions or prolonged heavy load.

Regards,
