I Know Fast.

My bike will go 170 MPH, my car will do 0-60 in 3 seconds, my girl will,...ah,..um,...my processor is a 4790K.

I've said before that I'm out of the overclocking business. I mean, I kicked the habit, but like a junkie I started reading the articles and I see the higher base clock and smoother power delivery, improved thermal interface material and lower temps and in a dream state, I placed an order. Through the gauzy haze of the evening sky, one dusty footstep succeeding the next, I entered,...The Devil's Canyon. Did your lights just flicker too?

Next thing I know I have packages arriving and out pops a MSI Z97M, 16 GB of Kingston 2400 Mhz RAM, a Hyper 212 EVO along with a SanDisk Extreme Pro SSD among all the rest of it. It may be time to remove that credit card information, so I have to enter it to make a purchase.

I spent $1050 using a Cooler Master N200 case and an Antec High Current 620W, case fan and wireless along with what I mentioned earlier, which altogether might be $50 cheaper today, you know how that goes.

Here's my build to add context to the review:
CPU: i7-4790K
Cooler: Corsair H100i (with Noctua fans)
Mobo: Asus Maximus VI Gene (mATX)
RAM: 8GB G.Skill Ripjaws X (2133MHz)
SSD: Intel 730 Series 240GB
HDD: Two (2) 3TB Seagate Barracudas in RAID1
PSU: Corsair CS550M (80+ gold)
Video Card: GTX 750Ti EVGA Superclocked edition
(all other parts are irrelevant)

My experience with this chip has been nothing but fantastic from the beginning. I have been stress testing my chip for a few days at varying frequencies, and my results were almost unbelievable. I was able to achieve 5.1GHz with my voltage set on auto. I used both P95 and AIDA64 in my testing, both of which my CPU passed with flying colors after a 4 hour "burn in." However, I was not able to make it to 5.2GHz since my PC blue screened after 5 minutes of Prime95.
All of this is extremely surprising since I've seen numerous reviews raving that this chip is a bad overclocker. So I've narrowed my possibilities down to three reasons. One, The reviewers who had overheating issues had a bad cooling system; two, they're very bad at using the BIOS; three, I must have the most golden 4790K to hit the shelves. Whichever is the case, I feel I have a great CPU and one that overclocks like a boss. If you don't believe me, I have the CPUID screenshot on my desktop for bragging rights.
If you're looking for a great Haswell refresh chip, look no further. This is a phenomenal processor. Or maybe I'm just excited to be upgrading from an AMD Phenom build that I've had since 2008.

I built my previous computer more than 6 years ago, and was due a refresh. So, naturally, I wanted the best bang-for-the-buck processor in my new build. Enter the i7-4790K. Four cores, eight threads, and a base clock speed of 4 GHz make this processor a best buy, IMO. They redesigned the thermal layer in this CPU, so the temperatures remain incredibly manageable while overclocking it. That being said, this processor is so fast that I haven't even bothered OC'ing it, and my setup is more than capable of doing so - it's paired with an ASRock Z97 motherboard, fast RAM, etc.

This processor is a no-brainer for anyone looking to upgrade, and if you pair this with a solid state drive, it'll blow your mind how fast everything becomes. Amazon will only let me give it 5 stars, but it truly deserves more.

To put it in perspective for people who say it isn't worth the upgrade over the i7 4770k. I previously had a 4770k, and it was a terrible overclocker. No matter what I did I couldn't achieve a speed over 4.2ghz. Not the fault of Intel, that's just the way it is with computer components. I was going to wait until Maxwell, at the very earliest, to upgrade again, then Intel released this CPU for pretty much the same cost as the 4770k. I ended up selling my 4770k for about 30 dollars less than what I paid for, and boy I am glad I did. As we sit right now I have my 4790k at what I consider a rock solid stable 4.9ghz at 1.37v. That is completely worth the 30 dollars I paid out of pocket for this CPU. And for those of you who are wondering, this CPU is compatible with some z87 boards. The advertisement up there that says a z97 is required is a lie. So for those of you who have crappy 4770k's this CPU is worth looking into.

A few months ago I was thinking about upgrading from an AMD A10-6800k to an Intel Core i7-4770k. I wanted to wait a few more months just to see if anything new would come out and I'm glad I waited! Purchased the 4790k along with an ASUS Z97I-PLUS Motherboard and an Intel 180GB 530 Series M.2 Form Factor because why not.

Before I upgraded my build I ran a set of 3D Mark benchmarks and here is the list of components I used and the numbers I got after running the Benchmarks.

CPU: AMD A10-6800K
Motherboard: MSI FM2-A75IA-E53 Mini ITX FM2
GPU: Gigabyte Radeon R9 290X 4GB Windforce
RAM: 16GB (2x 8GB) AMD Radeon Gamer Series
PSU: EVGA SuperNOVA 750W
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Seidon 120XL Liquid CPU Cooler
SSD: OCZ Agility 3 120GB
Case: Cooler Master Elite 130

Cloud Gate - 11074
Sky Diver - 16252
Fire Strike - 6692
Ice Storm - 70872

And here are the numbers after I upgraded the CPU to the Intel Core i7-4790K, Motherboard to the ASUS Z97I-PLUS, and added the M.2 SSD, All of the other components are the same.

Cloud Gate - 28209
Sky Diver - 28163
Fire Strike - 10133
Ice Storm - 159277

I am very happy that I made the decision to get the 4790k to replace my A10 because now paired with my R9 290x I can play Battlefield 4 at over 100FPS at 1920x1080 with the default settings making me play on Ultra everything. If you are wanting to upgrade to a nice top of the line CPU and have the cash to spare, I recommend this 100%!
