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.

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.

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.

As I said before... At last a CPU that will NOT hesitate to OC!!!

I've been in this market of Overclock Madness since the days of 486 DX2 CPUs, that means I was an early stater... Hehehe!

Going back on track, this CPU will fulfill the expectations of anyone seeking a good upgrade while keeping the same Z87 motherboard to the ones willing to have a better OC experience compared to 4770K. Now I feel and see my GTX 780 being pleased by my shinny i7-4790k. I don't wan't to arbitrary say that I got a golden one but this one does not break a sweat when it is OC'd to 4.8GHz @ 1.3v / 86C Max!!!

Definetly you will not regret...

A wonderful processor. It's lightning fast, has a bit of overclocking headroom (not like you'd need to with the speeds it offers out of the box!). The cooler that comes with it is garbage, but that's to be expected. it runs very cool, and is well worth the money. However, if you believe Intel's claims of getting it to 5GHz on air, shed those hopes immediately. It becomes way too power hungry and way too hot before you can get there. It might be possible for that one person who gets lucky and gets the perfect product, but for normal use, you won't get that. All in all though, a very good buy, and I'd highly recommend it.

The 4790k fixes everything wrong with 4770k for the same price as it's predecessor. You will experience no slowdowns and your computer will fly through literally anything you throw at it. while overclocked, this CPU can beat out intel's lower-end 6 core, socket 2011, Enthusiast CPU's at stock. This processor is also just fun to play with, being a great overclocker due to it's redesigned power management and redisigned TIM. If you have a 4770k, it might not be enough to jump the gun, but if you're looking for an upgrade, this is the one.
