    Know what it’s to be used forAs of now, this CPU is still the fastest clocked and DDR optimized CPU I could buy. I bought this CPU for math applications, photo editing, digital audio applications, and, of course, gaming. I didn’t prioritize video rendering and graphic creative applications highly nor was I much interested in onboard video and graphics capability through the CPU. And, important to note, I paid substantially less at the time of my purchase, by about 200 USD less than the 600-plus USD I’m seeing right now. For my uses and the price I paid this CPU is nothing short of eleven stars.However, had I different priorities for the CPU I’d probably have favored the AMD chips.Just a few notes: Buy a well-reviewed MB (I chose a MSI MEG Ace); second, buy a well-reviewed CPU cooler that’s been tested with this CPU (I chose the Arctic 280mm AIO); and third, use a PC case that optimizes the cooling choice performance. I wouldn’t spend several hundred on a CPU, then opt for cheap key components that facilitate CPU function. And yes, a discrete GPU is necessary for this CPU, but here one can wait for the upgrade and use a currently owned GPU if the budget requires.

    Get a good cooler …Great chip, but you will want a 360mm water cooler

    This processor combined with a ASUS TUF Z490 motherboard is one sweet gaming rigBought this so I can overclock the processor is need be. Built my next gaming rig to replace my existing one I built back in 2007. This thing flies! No bench test yet phases it. And it has plenty of overhead to smash the competition. Those benchmarks don’t lie. Pictures included in this review.

    Top Tier PerformanceThis chip is an absolute beast.Pro: Everything you do on your PC will be blazing fast when combined with an ssd. For gaming, this cpu has gotten me over 144 FPS in most 1440p games when combined with a 2080 super.Cons: gets very hot when overclocking even slightly, will require a really good watercooler. Dont expect to reach 5.3 without getting lucky.

    10 Cores 20 threads, do you really need a deka core cpu?Intel is picking up speed with these new cpu’s after the X-series hit the market, soon enough they’ll have cpus’s as good as the X-series at a much better value. I like this CPU a lot it can run through new installations, updates, and any other cpu heavy tasks like no other. Although it uses a lot of power, the extra speed feels worth the extra wattage used. I used this cpu to run console emulation and it does very well, I think it could do ok to run ps4 emulation but I hadn’t tried it. Most games seem to run a bit faster than usual though, this can be a concern if you play games where you need quick timing/reaction speed like in first person shooters. It may be better to use a standard eight core or six core cpu if game speed is a concern. Overall I”d give this item five stars, I can’t wait to build a new Rocket Lake computer!

    Get a good cpu cooler!!Such a powerful CPU. Good luck if you have poor or decent cooling system. My previous AIO wasn’t able to cool this beast off, idle temp was 90°c!! So I got the NZXT Kraken x63 and now the idle temp is at 28-30°c. If you are thinking of getting this CPU I highly recommend investing in CPU cooling as well.

    Absolute GigaChad. Runs Hot.To be fair, I upgraded from an i7-8700; this cpu is blazing fast and i’ve only ever gotten up to 80% usage running 3 intensive games at once. I do have one of those beefy Noctua dual fan coolers to keep temps low and stable ( 27°C idle, in general staying around 60°C), as this heats up fast. Make sure you get a proper cooler, as a standard heatsink single fan cooler was pushing 85°C at 35% usage.

    Pretty pretty pretty goodConsidering the shortages on the 5000 series Ryzen’s, this is the next best thing that you can actually buy at retail! I managed to get one in the warehouse deals for a cheaper price than full blown retail on an unopened package, but it still works great! You also save a little on this because of the lack of APU in the KF model. Of course there’s an issue if you’re using this with integrated graphics in the first place so it’s more of a non-issue for most people. Performance is spot on easily showing up almost all AMD at single threaded applications. The 10 core’s are more than enough for almost anyone. I’ve got it on a 360mm AIO and temps never go above 70c for any reason, even extended gaming sessions.

    Great little beast.Despite still using an older 14nm architecture, this little beast handles everything you can throw at it with ease. Upgrading from an 8 core 8 thread i7-9700k, where I was seeing high 90% CPU utilisation in multilayer games, a 10 core 20 thread CPU will go a long way towards future titles.Perhaps what I was most presently surprised by was how cool it runs. Under load, the CPU can top out at 80C+ at stock with power limits removed and MCE disabled, but that is only when running AVX-heavy benchmarks like Cinebench R15, with a 30C ambient and an NZXT Kraken X63 280MM AIO inside my NZXT H510 case, which has notoriously poor airflow. When gaming, however, the temperature hardly, if ever, go above 70C, mostly hovering in the high-50s to low-60s range. This gives thermal headroom for some mild overclocking, which I have yet to do, because it already performs so well at stock speeds.
