Very fast, awesome processor.
Dave Thompson
Really though, if even this old man can get it up....the clock speed I mean, you youngsters, with your staying power....You know what I'm trying to say.

That is completely worth the 30 dollars I paid out of pocket for this CPU.

*This chip is socket 1150 and will work in many Z87 boards..But..You need to check the manufacturers website for a BIOS update that says it will and in most cases have another chip to do the update with before installing this one. Otherwise Z97 is what you want. Edit: Some Z87 are shipping with the update*

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

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.

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.

I recently purchased this CPU because I was having some video issues on my AMD FX-8350 build. I would get this micro stutter when panning left or right in any of the latest release games or games that require a mid to high range video card to run (Assassin's Creed: Black Flag, Far Cry 3, Metro 2033 etc.) I know my video could handle it as I have a EVGA GTX 780 Ti Super Clocked and I know that beast eats all the latest graphics like they aren't even there so I was a bit concerned why I was getting this stutter. I changed out so many parts it was ridiculous. I finally had enough and changed to this CPU (I used the EVGA Z97 FTW board) and right away that stutter just left as soon as it arrived. Now I'm not saying that AMD is bad by any means, look what's in the next gen consoles, but I sure was tired of fighting with the issue I had and Intel delivered the performance I was hoping for. This was my first Intel build and I have to say I'm a huge fan now. I know its a bit more expensive but it certainly was worth the extra money for it. My EVGA board didn't even need a BIOS update to use this CPU either so I'll be sure to write a good review on that board as its awesome and works just like it should.
