Reviews
Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 57 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for gaming, Scan delivered promptly Easy to replace existing processor (pentium in my case) in a motherboard socket 1150. Together with 16Gbyte of memory and a heavyweight graphics card it plays high end games just fine. 31 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to put in make sure to get a good thermal compound i used arctic More expensive than the i3 and i5 but quality is worth the extra you put into it, MAKE SURE MOTHERBOARD IS 1150 compatible. 17 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love this one Powah! I can feel like Jeremy from TG, yelling SPEEEED! :D Its great for my build, high performance and nothing surprised me so far. Its just great 01 November 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Great CPU but paired with a cooler from the pound shop? Very surprised to find Intel supply this CPU with a cooler that's just over a pound (if you search on Scan) and thermal paste which is barely up to the job either. AMD gets some bad press but I had an FX 8350 before that and at least the stock cooler was decent and up to the job. If you buy this allow another £50 for decent cooling - very poor considering the cost of this CPU. CPU itself is very good and excels as you would expect at gaming and multimedia tasks. When you look at the Skylake equivalent that's a good bargain if you aren't too bothered about socket 1151. 20 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by cheapest air colling systemand if you afford it please do maxing cpu with air coorlin i you need super silence then ger wtater cooled but its iup to you 19 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exceptional performance increases Intel i7 runs fantastically and I've had no problems with it. Gave me a good 20 - 30 fps more in GTAV as well as dramatically improving my PCs streaming capability and general all round performance. There are similar processors for less such as the Xeon E3 series, but I prefer the i7 for its mainstream credentials. 14 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent. Excellent product, All the power I need to do everything I want. 08 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good overclocker Nice CPU with over-clocking headroom. I recently installed 2 of these in different machines. Runs cool at idle. No problems. 24 September 2015

Answer: 
Yes, you can use Phanteks cooler, ND H14/15 from Noctua or Cryorig R1 Ultimate/Universal and other Tower coolers with dense fin stack. They can cool them easily.

My i7 Right now is running at 4.5 GHz at 1.218 volts and is cooled very well using my Cryorig R1 Ultimate.

Answer: 
Most decent air coolers will work with this. It is a standard socket 1150 chip so will work with any 1150 compatible coolers (basically anything non budget). I personally have a Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO and works perfectly.

Answer: 
Any CPU cooler that is compatible with socket 1150 will work with a 4790k. However you do need to make sure that it fits your motherboard and ram. Check the heights of the cooler before you buy it and make sure that it will not encroach on your ram or any tall heatsinks or caps on your motherboard.

Answer: 
this will work with most cpu coolers aslong as they fit in your tower and dont collide with your RAM, just look for a cooler that states it will fit intel processors and especially the 1150 socket but most just sit on the CPU so its not to difficult to set up

Answer: 
It comes with an Intel stock heatsink + fan that will work fine so long as you're not overclocking and don't mind the noise.
If you want to over-clock or want a quieter cooler go for an after-market one with a large fan.

Answer: 
the answer really is dependent on the size of the case you are using, and of course your socket is 1150, so any cooler with 1150 socket that fits in your case.

Answer: 
If you're not overclocking and not concerned with a little more noise, the stock heatsink is fine.

If youre planning on gaming or SLIGHTLY overclocking then a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO should see you well, just make sure you can fit it in your case as it is a tall cooler,

For abit more cooling performance a Noctua NH-D15 is a good choice, however it is more than twice the price than the Cooler Master cooler, again check you can fit this cooler in your case

To keep things in check i would got for an AIO cooler atleast tho, if you are limited for space a Corsair H80i or if thats too thick then a H60 will do :)
