    • Price versus previous i7
    • Speed
    • 1155 socket

    I ordered this processor on Sunday 24-1-2021 and it was delivered on Monday 25-1-2021. I ordered a motherboard from Megekko with pain in my heart because it was +- 25 euros more expensive at coolblue. I am sorry, Megekko indicated to deliver today and the package is still not at PostNL in the sorting box. next time I will just order from coolblue even if it costs a little more, mainly because no other company provides the service that coolblue has.

    All in all, order from coolblue and not from other promising under-performing companies. It's worth the money.

    Cool piece of technology!

    • Nice and smooth
    • little heat
    • Plug and play
    • Powerful
    • Fast
    • Pricey

    Works very smoothly and makes efficient use of all high-end components (gpu-ram-ssd). I have water cooled my PC, but that is not necessary at all with this processor (not once measured a temperature of more than 55 degrees). Good air cooling is fine, after all, the CPU can withstand temperatures up to +/- 90 degrees safely and without thermal throttling.

    I really think this is a top CPU, recommended!

    Udhee kharbanda | 15 January 2021 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Very good CPU, the integrated graphics are quite fine for 1080P on most games
    • In terms of Multitasking, this is a CPU that I would highly recommend, you can do many things at the same time without any problems.
    • Price/quality, in my opinion, this is the best CPU you can get, also because of the 3.9 Ghz and the integrated graphics, this is a Top CPU!
    • No CPU cooler included

    I like the product because it really lives up to the price, perfect for gaming!

  • 4.5 / 5 stars
    8,5/10
    great for the slightly heavier programs
    • You won't need a new processor for the foreseeable future
    • sometimes overkill
    • suitable for all programs
    • a somewhat expensive investment if you are never going to use the full 100%

    Very suitable for 3D modeling (eg Solidworks, AutoCAD or Fusion 360), video editing and gaming on the higher settings.

    Great for gaming
    • Best CPU for gaming
    • And also very fast for most other applications
    • Can last for years and years
    • Price-performance ratio is better with some other CPUs

    Currently about the fastest CPU for gamers. And with its 8 cores, it is fast for just about all applications. Presumably, this processor can last for years to play games at maximum settings.
    The rating for graphics is of course one star, because integrated GPU means little. But of course every gamer with this CPU buys a separate GPU from nVidia or AMD.

    Good processor for a fair price
    • Good performances

    Personally, I always find it very difficult to estimate the performance of a processor. The filters and the "Coolblue's choice" label do help you make a good choice for your specific situation. So far the performance is very good. Despite this being a processor from 2018, I can run all games smoothly on high settings.
