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.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by great for streaming games. Can finally run cpu intensive games like tf2 with decent fps while streaming. 16 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by low wattage vm workstation mixed this with a m2 boot drive and a couple of ssd's on a gigabyte GA-H170M-D3H board with 32gb mem to run 5-8 test systems as virtual machines - couldn't be more pleased - corsair 430 watt power supply more than enough :) 08 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic If you are not one for over-clocking, then this is definitely the gamer choice. It's solid and gets every job done with minimum effort. 04 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cooler fan is terrible! This is a great CPU but the supplied cooling fan is complete junk. If you gradually increase the speed using your motherboard it goes from "completely off" to "noisy hairdryer" with nothing in between. If you are buying this instead of the 6700K because this one is supplied with the cooler and the 6700K isn't, don't bother because you are going to have to replace the fan anyway unless noise levels don't bother you. 30 March 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by new build only problem was the stock cooler included with the product. When stressed to 100% activity within 10 minutes temperatures hit above 90C. Once replaced with more cooling not a problem. 08 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Intel Core i7 6700 Excellent value Excellent quality Excellent delivery very fast Does exactly what it says on the tin , very highly recommended 19 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great speed and runs cool I needed a new build to replace my ageing i7 920 machine I've had for around 6 years now. As I don't generally overclock my machines I opted for this over the 6700k, The processor is quick, power efficient and runs cool. I usually have high ambient room temps which has seen idle temps of most CPU's at around 50c but this Idles at 25-30c Definitely would recommend this to anyone looking to upgrade 12 February 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Nothing to say about it, does the job, quite powerfull 11 February 2016

Answer: 
Hello,

Only certain motherboards will allow you to overclock non-K Intel CPUs, this is due to manufacturers needing to update BIOS versions to allow it.
