It works great, very fast!
Luke White
Stock speed is 3.5GHz and with a Corsair H100i water cooling setup I've been able to overclock it to 4.1GHz without even raising the voltage.

Best bang for your buck in my opinion.

I've always bought i7s when building a PC for gaming, but after educating myself on the true essentials for a gaming machine I decided to take a leap of faith (for me at least) and buy this i5. This was a smart choice, the i5-4690K is an astounding processor for gaming and is overclock friendly.

Don't make the mistake I've been making for years and fall pray to the only-i7 for gaming hype. Unless you're intending to make multiple VMs on your machine, there is ZERO benefit to buying an i7. I have my processer running in tandem with a 980 GTX and there hasn't been a game yet that I haven't been able to play with everything maxed out at +60fps.

I purchased this processor as an upgrade to my computer to replace my i3-4130. The i3 was running games well enough but sometimes it was struggling a little on cpu intensive games like dayz and bf4 and trying to multitask while gaming was tough.

Im using the i5 4690k on an AsRock z97 m itx/ac motherboard and using a silverstone argon heatsink with push/pull to cool it. I overclocked it to 4.4 ghz on 1.2 V hitting in the 70's C on Intel Burn Test. I could overclock it further but I am comfortable with it and the heat its putting out because its my first overclock.

In games like bf4 im able to play at around 60-90 fps and sometimes dips to the 50's fps on ultra with a gtx 660. DayZ is also signifigantly better because it plays much smoother. This processor gets in the 40's and 50's degrees C while gaming so it stays pretty cool even overclocked.

So overall, the i5 4690k is an awesome cpu for gaming and great for multitasking and its stays pretty cool while gaming.

This is a great processor, it is very fast and extremely simple to install. If you are coming from older processors like the LGA 775 you will notice there are absolutely NO pins on the processor. I love this design choice and it was a breath of fresh air not having to check for bent pins after pulling it out of the box.

I have this processor paired with an ASUS z97 Sabretooth Mk 1 and the Corsair H100i Liquid Cooler and the processor has a modest overclock of 4.5Ghz though the BIOS. I have never seen the processor go over 42 degrees Celsius even when playing intense video games or running an anti virus scan or anything of that nature.

I will point out however that the stock heat sink is TERRIBLE. I do NOT like the pin designs that lock in to the back of the motherboard. I attempted to install during the initial build because I wanted to wait and install the Liquid Cooler after installing the OS but it would not lock in to place properly. It took a lot of patience and I had to be extremely careful attempting to pry this sucker off because it DID not want to come off the motherboard.

So in conclusion the processor is great and is more than adequate for my needs, the stock heat sink however is not very good. I don't know if I got a defective stock heat sink but I would not recommend trying to use it unless you absolutely have too. I feel with an investment of this nature and at this price you should look in to an adequate aftermarket cooling solution anyway but that is just my opinion.

Quite probably the best power/performance ratio on the market, and it's got quite a bit of power. It will reasonably run whatever games or applications you throw at it. In fact, this item renders i7 mostly useless for all but the most money-hating or high powered users. I frequently run several applications on top of current-gen games and jump between everything constantly, and I experience no noticeable stops or slowdowns. You'll only max this thing out when you set out to do so.

Use for - All but the most heavy CPU users (1080p+ video rendering), and is still probably fine for that purpose
Don't use for - If you just check your email and stuff. It's way more than the casual or home user needs to pay for. This CPU is for business and gaming.

Better than last years 4670k, which is a given. But how much better?
Well, you see, it's luck of the draw. Considering you're buying a K series CPU, I'll assume you're a bit of an enthusiast (read: geek) as well.

The 4690k has better TIM (Thermal Interface Material) between the actually die (CPU) and the heatspreader. While I was planning to delid this chip, my old vice had defeated me, and left me with a chip that was still intact.

Comparing overclock results to my old 4670k-
4670k - 4.5 GHZ at 1.25v
4690k - 4.7 GHZ at 1.26v

"Wait, big deal, you upped the voltage!" Yes, but the 4690k is actually the same temperature, or even cooler than the 4670k was. Especially considering I don't use the H100i I used on the 4670k, and am using an air cooler - I'm impressed. And yes I know overclocking is completely dependent on the the silicon lottery, I'm just giving my results.

Okay, what if you can get the 4670k for a significant ($20~) price difference? I'd say get the 4670k.
But if they're the same price, or close - get the 4690k.

The 4690k isn't the overclocking god that Intel made it seem, but it's a worthy side step if you don't already have the 4670k.
