Easy to install, Kaby Lake is great, great CPU at the price point if you aren't going to OC.

The i5-7500 was a great deal at the time and managed to buy it for 10$ less than the i5-6500, you can never go wrong with an Intel processor.

I chose this kaby lake CPU because of its low TDP and because it fits my budget. I left the stock cooler on, and it's reasonably silent.

I'm not interested in overclocking and this is more than I need for my purposes.

Potentially the best buy for me as it ensures future upgrades without any bottlenecks.

Great processor for the price. Runs very cool in my build.

TL;DR - Solid chip, great price.

Pros: Decent temps with stock cooler, good price, solid performance.

Cons: More powerful options available

Is it the best processor available? No, not even in the i5 line - but this lil guy runs everything I throw at it and doesn't heat up with the stock cooler. This chip is more of a placeholder for me - I wanted to invest in other parts of my build while still getting a Kaby Lake chip, so running the 7500 without overclocking worked like a charm - and I still have the ability to upgrade to a K-series and a better cooler when I feel like making the investment.

Great CPU for the price, stays cool under load (58C). If wanting to put together a non-OC build, this is the chip to do it with, plenty fast for gaming and streaming, enough said.
