Every aspect of day to day computing was multitudes faster than it had been. Everything from booting, opening applications, heavy multi-tasking, etc. was so much faster that I often found myself trying to find things to accomplish to fill in down time ... something I can't remember ever having with my old system.
It has greatly increased my ability to substantially increase my intelligence with the added Youtube and Chive time I know have.
The one lesson I truly learned with this exerciser was that obtaining the best is not always the most expensive route to take.
Upon booting my PC after installation the fan wound up, into what I can only imagine was the fastest RPM it could pull. During this wind up, it made the most horrible noise, as if a race car was driving through my house. Once it leveled out at roughly 37c, the fan lowered its RPM's, but it was still incredibly loud, I could hear it over the YouTube videos about replacement options for said fan.
When I tried to run Rainbow Six: Siege, the CPU heated up to 105c, and averaged 100c. This was without any overclocking, 16gb RAM, and an R9 390x, plus 2 extra fans in my case.
I realized that for any CPU usage, a air cooler just wouldn't do for this CPU. I immediately bought a Corsair Hydro H100i GTX. Upon installation/boot, I didn't hear a whisper of a noise. The CPU idles at around 27c, and running Rainbow Six: Siege/Assassin's Creed: Syndicate/GTA V/Fallout 4 (All on ultra settings) - the CPU never exceeded 60c, and idles around 55c for said games.
So the product is incredible, it is what's on the box. The downside is, please do your research for a proper cooling solution that will fit your case. There is no way that the stock cooler will work in any condition at all, and it's literally pointless for them to include it.
I debated on leaving 4 stars, because I feel that the product should be marketed in a way to let people know upfront that they will have to invest in a decent cooler (more expenses down the line) to get the product to function as intended. But, I gave it 5 stars because it's just that good of a CPU.
I updated to a 240mm water cooler and this CPU is now running much cooler even with some mild overclocking but it still cannot handle Prime95's "most heat" setting. It immediately overheats. I think that test may not reflect real world conditions. Nothing else, even with some overclocking, comes near to overheating the CPU. I don't know if the Prime95 application was written with this type of processor in mind. So I will continue to test with a bit more overclocking and see what happens. I won't test any further with that 'most heat' setting of Prime95. Otherwise this CPU has been working great, no problems at all. With this CPU and an SSD boot drive Windows 10 boots almost instantly.
It was suggested that I try an older version of Prime95 to test (see comments) and it does work as it should with the older 26.6 version. It runs at 68-70 C using the same settings that caused it to overheat with the later version. Some internet research verifies this to be an issue between at least some of the latest Intel CPUs and the later Prime95 versions. I had suspected it to be an issue with Prime 95 and apparently it is. So if you are going to use Prime95 to test this CPU, I at least, recommend you use the earlier version of Prime95 to avoid prematurely making toast out of your CPU.
