    Great CPU, very overclockable, but does tend to run a little bit hot. I did not decide to delid it in my build, but doing so would definitely help out with the thermals. Even so, I could not be happier with my choice on the new Intel platform.

    from completed build Little Shoebox

    One of the few challenges of this build was keeping this little guy cool. At first, the temps on load were jumping to high 90s. I have since delidded and undervolted and gaming temps are 60s, 70s now.

    Mercilessly beats my i7-5930K, and somehow has a lower TDP... only downside is that it requires delidding :(
    Amazing single core performance, and can typically hit around 5 GHz on ALL cores.
    (disclaimer: I use both Intel and AMD)
    Intel is unmatched for raw speed, but Ryzen definitely wins the value department.

    from completed build Aorus Army battle station

    What can I say... simply a great value for the performance I've been able to obtain. I had my 8700K up to 5GHz/1.35v but was concerned about thermal throttle on my ATC700 air cooler with temps at almost 90°C. I decided to delid using the der8auer Delid Die Mate 2 and was able to sustain a 5GHz/1.32v overclock with temps never exceeding 76°C.

    Beast of a processor. Easily turbos above 4.4. Love it!

    from completed build My first custom build

    OC to 5.0-5.1GHZ, Intel should have used solder not thermal paste.

    Gaming and Productivity performance is outstanding, and I was able to overclock mine to 5GHz without it being too hot. Very pleased with this chip.

    Awesome. Specifically put my build off a few months for it, definitely worth it in my opinion. I feel like my PC will keep up for much longer than if I had gone with my original plan of a i7-7700K. Not overclocked yet, but stays much cooler than I expected (idle around 25C, gaming around 55C, and highest I saw was with Prime 95 it was around 65C), so I may put an all core clock at 4.7 and see how it goes.

    from completed build Storm Trooper: Standard Issue

    This thing is AMAZING! I feel as though i should have went with its locked version. Given the air cooler and form factor of the case, i cannot overclock this chip without temps getting out of hand. But It does everything I ask of it, seamlessly and unquestioned. Im not huge on overclocking and lean more towards longevity, so stock speed will suffice for now, and its nice to know the potential of this chip if I move to a larger case.
