Intel Core i7-4770K LGA1150

Cost effective when bought used

gonX

Pros: High overclocking headroom

Cons: Needs delid if stress testing above 4.5-4.6 GHz

This chip is one of the better I've used, and is still relevant by todays standards, even a few years after its release. With a modest overclock it still competes with $300 chips in 2017. It's biggest issue is its temperatures. Intel really dropped the ball on the IHS. A 100W load hitting 90c on some of the best air coolers around doesn't make sense. Luckily, delid is easy with delidding tools...

“Enough of the jokes. I take Tom's "Best CPU" monthly articles literally...for gaming (of which I not much of a), "if you're not going to OC, you probably don't need more than a 4440.) And when I was looking of an i5 for this new build I'm now working on, I saw an offer of this i5-4440 for only $168 at NCIX, it seemed that it would do. Review is predicated on a damned good price basically....” --dennphill

Intel Pentium G2030 / 3 GHz processor

“I had one of these 1155 Pentium CPUs for a year, give or take a few days. With 8 GB RAM and a Gigabyte GT 730 GPU added onto an ASRock H61M-VS4 Motherboard, the G2030 was quite capable of doing small 3D renderings in TurboCAD, and it can handle older games like Xcom and the UT series, though not on hi-res. There was also no problem with movie watching, (as long as all necessary codecs are...” --Kosenator

“This is a great processor. Period. I have worked with the 3570K, and the 3820 before, and this beats both of them. On super pi 1M, it scored 9.282 seconds at stock speed paired with a maximus vi gene and 16 gb of 1866 dominator ram, with a gtx 770. This thing is just ridiculous. The price tag at first is one of those "no way" moments, but after it's installed, you have one of those "worth every...” --Oliver1234

“So I couldn't wait until I had saved enough for a Haswell 'Devil's Canyon' Unlocked CPU to put into my new Maximus VI Hero, and instead bought a Haswell i7 4771. I was prepared for a little disappointment, and have never been more pleasantly surprised. I seriously recommend this CPU for anyone looking for a high powered gaming processor, without any need to be 'overclocked'. Pair it with...” --way2aware

Intel Core i7-4790K Processor- BX80646I74790K

“I have to say that overall I am extremely pleased with my i7 4790k purchase and it's performance. It is so incredibly fast, and is actually just a hair shy of a $500 i7 3930k in most tasks which says a lot. That really is a big deal for a $300 proc. The 4790k idles strangely cool, in the low 20's (C) with my Corsair H80i, and is about 8-10C cooler than an i7 4770k at idle all things being...” --hapkiman
