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.

The i5 has always been my processor of choice. I don't need the i7, and I'd rather have the reliability of Intel over AMD. The i5 is perfect for my needs. Heavy gaming, Adobe Photoshop, Premiere, Flash, Illustrator, InDesign all run flawless. No issues with heat on a ThermalTake NiC F4 cooler, even when utilizing my SLI setup. Never goes over 65C. I highly recommend for gaming, as the i7 is simply not needed. It's been proven that the i7 only gives a 5-10% increase in performance over the i5 because games are not utilizing more than 4 cores at this time. That small performance increase is just not worth the extra $110+ for me.

This will be used for a long time. People still game on i7 920's and with Vulkan and DX12 benchmarking well, these CPU's are going to last a long time now. It's in my friends computer but compared to my 4770k the general experience is no different. Checking benchmarks, the difference in performance in games is limited to only a few games that truly scale well with more threads. So far I've heard no complaints from him as he plays games or works on improving his ability with the Adobe Creative Cloud, Blender, or Unity game engine. The thing is a beast and will most likely last a long time. If anything, the thing will last forever if used as a general usage PC like how my parents use my old Phenom II 925 PC.
