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 91 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.

Dramatic Increase in Media & Graphics
Intel® HD Graphics 530 can easily deliver an amazing visual experience in resolutions all the way up to Ultra HD 4K, so you can make the most of 4K displays. The Intel® Core™ i5 6600K also has support for the latest graphics APIs such as DirectX 12, this means that you will be able to run mainstream games and apps up to 2x better graphics than previous generation processors. Intel® on-board graphics processor is up to 28% faster than previous generation GPUs.

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.

Intel Core i5 6600K, S 1151, Skylake, Quad Core, 3.5GHz, 3.9GHz Turbo, 6MB Cache, 1150MHz GPU, 35x Ratio, 91W, CPU, OEM is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from What more do you need? I use my PC for the usual internet streaming and basic Office stuff but mostly for gaming. I do not think you need anything more than this for an every day PC. With a Z chip set MB you can start to overclock as your system gets older if required. I would only go for the i7 if you are doing heavy photo and video editing because the price vs performance boost is not worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for My PC was giving up, so I decided to order in new parts to revive it. In doing this, I swapped out my old AMD FX8350 for this. I don't regret it one bit. It does the job just right with no massive overkill. I would definitely recommend this CPU to those looking for one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Capable and cool Impressed with the cpu. Runs very cool, even when over clocking.
Date published: 2016-07-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reasonably fast for a k cpu without hyper threading Good cpu temps low with a Noctua in low profile cooler with next to no noise @ all. Both items do as they say on the tin so nor egrets cooler from elsewhere cpu from scan & usual quick on line service hassle free from scan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This CPU is pretty amazing This CPU is a fantastic processor, very fast and very cheap from Scan (£10-£20 saving at least). Pair this up with a decent Z170 board (I also bought the AsRock Z170 Fatality K4/D3) and they work so very well together. However These CPU's do NOT come with their own Heatsincs and Fans so you will need to provide your own cooling solution (which I already had from my 3570K). Best gaming chip around at the moment for price vs performance and will take a decent overclock ,out of the box is 3.5ghz but I have mine running a little higher at 4.2 and there is still a lot more room left
Date published: 2016-03-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great so far, runs cool & very easy overclock I got this and overclocked it to 4.4Ghz without any issues at all. Runs at 48c at 100% stress test for 12 hours, idles at 18c (water cooled h110i GT)
Date published: 2016-03-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from all you need for gaming got it quick and no issues installing it. it came in a little foam box which made me worry but it had no faults.
Date published: 2016-02-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Intel CPU Previously have had AMD processors from the K6-2 until the Phenom II 965. All i can say, is im blown away from single core performance and the sheer power compared to the AMD competitors. Also due to the lower power requirements of the processor as well. Yes could have gone with the previous Gen for the Intel processors, but wanted to make the most out of my new system though. With default settings with my re-used Corsair H80i, the idle temp is 22c and not seen it go above 30c whilst in a game. Although, i most likely would have stayed with AMD if they had something decent, what wasn't a part upgrade (Although, either case would have needed a new Motherboard)
