Great processor and great overclocker. 4.5Ghz and XMP 2400Mhz DDR4 on 1.299908V.

Best CPU I have ever used, not the best at overclocking however.

Incredibly fast and reliable. Barely breaks a sweat when intentionally run multiple intense processing (i.e, converting videos).

After ruling out AMD it was between this and the 5920k; I wanted the extra lanes even though I will probably never use them. Also I'm not very familiar with OC so the clock was nice. Currently running at 3.75

Excellent chip.

For me, the i7-5930k sits right at the sweet spot of Haswell-E processors - it's got the 40 PCI-E lanes for the SLI plus the higher base clock speed, with only the loss of the 2 cores from the much pricier 5960k. A great processor all around.

I knew I wanted a 6-Core i7, so it was between this and the 5820K. I had a little extra money to burn for once in my life, so I figured I'd get the added expand-ability of the extra lanes, and a little more speed. So far it's a total boss. Aftereffects compositions that used to take 45 minutes to render on my old Lynnfield i5 now finish in 3 minutes.

Good piece of hardware, can be better, oc part, but hey it's Sillicon Lottery here

This CPU has been amazing. It has laughed at everything I have thrown at it so far. While it is not overclocked yet, I do plan on doing so in the near future. Originally, was going to go with the 5820k, but at the price I got this for, I just could not pass it up.
