SOME HISTORY
-----------------------
Essential DIY PC Config:
Intel G3220 Dual core (eventually switched to i5-4690)
Asrock H81-DGS R2.0 motherboard
Hynix 4GBx2 Dual channel 1600MHz RAM
Crucial M4 256GB SSD
Antec 520W Bronze 80+ PSU
GTX 660

Previously, I used Intel G3220 as I was keen to do some benchmarking for games such as StarCraft 2, World of Warcraft, Diablo 3, Battlefield 3, Battlefield 4 and so on.

I found out that Intel G3220 can do most gaming quite efficiently except Battlefield 4 where you sometimes get stutter for 1 or 2s in demanding 64 man map such as Siege of Shanghai. It is playable but you must be very skilled. I always get 100% CPU utilization during game play no matter how big or small the screen size is or graphics setting, change Nvidia control panel to performance, audio setting and whatever setting I can think of.

Conclusion: G3220 can support most games including Battlefield 3 1080p Ultra. For more demanding games like Battlefield 4: CPU(G3220) is the bottleneck, FPS in demanding maps can drop to 20+. CPU passmark: 3430.

THE PLEASANT SWAP
--------------------------------
I bought this i5-4690 for US$199 during the price drop (compared around the price and it was the lowest I could get). Finally, the CPU arrived. The stock cooler is slightly different from that of G3220 as it has a copper contact vs. aluminium. I swapped the CPU as well as the stock cooler. The new stock cooler spins slightly faster and noisier though not audible once the casing is closed tight. Process of swap is pretty fast.

System refused to boot up after swap. I need to reset the bios settings via changing of jumper on the mother board. System boot up and recognized the CPU. Good.

This processor is worth every penny. I do a lot of Video Converting, and it was a pain having to wait 30 mins to convert a 25 minute video. Now with this processor, I can convert a 25 minute video in 3 Minutes! if that gives you any idea as to how fast it is. That turbo boost kicks in and she just starts flying! Every other task has been surprisingly fast as well. This thing just blows right through everything I throw at it. I mainly bought it for gaming but, I do also convert videos A LOT so this processor is good for everything I needed it for.
I haven't actually gotten to play any games using it yet, but I can tell just by how much of an improvement it is over my last CPU, that games wont be an issue for this processor.
Here's some of what I have on my PC right now.

- OS - Windows 8.1
- CPU - Intel i5 4690 3.5 Ghz
- RAM - 8 GB DDR3 1600 Mhz
- Motherboard - MSI Z87-G45 Gaming
- PSU - 620 Watt
- GPU - Integrated Graphics Motherboard/CPU (No Graphics Card yet) Picture looks GREAT!

---------PROS---------

Incredibly Fast

Runs through everything I throw at it with ease

Super quiet

Very solid 3.5 Ghz with 3.9 Ghz Turbo that automatically kicks in when needed.

If you're not looking to overclock, this is the one you want.

--------CONS---------

None.

After I finally got it, was stoked to install and get to checking out how my games ran. I was using an AMD FX Vuschera 4.0ghz before with quad core, and had the gigabyte 970 8GB of ram, on arma 3 I would normally get 20-45 FPS at 1920x1080p. After I put together my new pc which uses the i5 instead of the FX, all other hardware, minus motherboard, stay the same, I was getting between 45-70 FPS at 1920x1080p. I checked the FPS based on a Breaking Point US Servers and used nvidia shadow play for the FPS Counter. Needless to say, I am very happy that I finally got this processor, and since I don't intend to Overclock, this is perfect for me. If you intend to overclock, and don't need hyperthreading, you may check out the i5-4690k.

Super fast, hardy, and the performance is spectacular. I recommend this to whoever isn't planning to overclock and want something cheaper than the i7 series.

Intel Core i5-4690 Quad-Core is very similar to its close and new cousin 4690K - though it’s bit older and its clock multiplier is locked which prevents easy overclocking, this is still processor worth consideration in case you are building multimedia or gaming system having the high requirements on processor side.

Out of the box this 1150 socket type processor runs on 3.9 GHz, comes with 6MB of cache and due to its lower energy consumption and lower price compared to newer K generation it can be still considered as good contender on market for more demanding users.

On the other hand maybe it was not good decision to first test K series and then the older one because this older one lacks thermal interface placed between the die and integrated heat spreader, therefore making it more vulnerable to higher temperatures.

Speaking about performance, I used the same system for its review checking it on my primary system built for more demanding multitasking and gaming purposes. Actually I was more than satisfied with results compared to K series because there was no major difference in performance which was somehow expected, while in Cinebench R10 older brother even performed better (26,983 vs. 26,902).

Of course, these results are of both processors being not overclocked while both processors showed great improvement compared to the older processor i5-4570 3.2GHz.

I plan to update this review (hopefully soon) with some more detailed results from benchmark applications for both processors but in short if you don’t consider lack of overclocking capabilities 4690 is processor that can be fully recommended because for price delivers good value in terms of quality.

Therefore, for users in need for high performance, still not willing to give few bucks more for K series and not interested for overclocking, Intel Core i5-4690 will be good choice.
