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 8 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best one out there so far! This is my first purchase of an Intel i7 CPU, and I have to say, I am not disappointed. I use it for video editing and it performs like a dream with eight threads to utilize; it makes short work of rendering. I deliberately chose not to buy an alternate versions which included a cooler, as I have always hated the bog standard Intel offering, not to mention the fitting! 02 May 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Worthwhile upgrade to any desktop CAD workstation Good price point and solid performance make this a great core to any cad system. If your Mother board doesn't support Skylake Go get a new one! 10 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superb Processor I would recommend installing this processor, runs perfectly, and does not get hot, easy to install and unbelievable value from Scan. Highly recommend. 09 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Works perfectly. No need for a nice box in my opinion. 28 February 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Bought the OEM only to find out that retail version was being sold for less else where! This processor was listed as OEM and was about £30 cheaper than the retail version. OEM version is sold in a very basic cardboard packaging. The CPU itself was as expected, but was returned without opening the box as I found that retail version could be bought cheaper at another online site. 03 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Modern powerful CPU It's pretty much what you'd expect from the latest in the line of Intel CPUs. As always a little expensive at this point in the range and the release cycle, but does the job and a good upgrade on my 5 year old CPU. 03 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Breathtakingly fast i'v not had a computer that runs so fast Thank you :) 20 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good CPU Used on Maximus Hero VIII and straight to 4.8GHz with one click in Asus software! 18 January 2016

OEM vs non OEM

Is there any difference between OEM and non OEM version of this product. I've noticed a 30 pound difference in price, why exactly is that? I'm planning on purchasing this item in the close future.

Thanks!

i7-6700k comes without heat sink/fan anyway. That is why I don't understand it. Moreover both have the same 12 months warranty.

Answer: 
The people who mostly buy OEM CPU's are gaming enthusiasts and overclockers who are going to use a 3rd party heat sinks or water cooled systems so for people who do this it would be a wast of money to buy one with a fan and heat sink just to thow them away i.e. retail boxed non OEM
