Rated 5 out of 5 by Electrotechie 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rob90 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Moto23 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ScruffLord 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1234 Good overclocker
Nice CPU with over-clocking headroom.
I recently installed 2 of these in different machines.
Runs cool at idle. No problems.
