Used to be amazing, is now merely good.

Pros: Fast, extremely overclockable, 6 cores means it's still relevant today

Cons: Now that Ryzen is out it's a bad value proposition, not to mention that it's on a dead platform. Also, it runs pretty hot when overclocked.

Ah, where to begin? Back in 2014 when this CPU was announced, it was a killer. Quad-channel DDR4 (the first CPU lineup to support DDR4 might I add), 6 cores for the then-mere price of ~$450, and overclockability with the only downside being a lack of PCIe lanes compared to its bigger brother? Sign me up! Who cares about PCIe lanes anyway, all you need is a GPU and maybe an add-in card, right? Three years later, things have changed a bit. Most importantly, AMD's Ryzen came out which means that I can have an unlocked 6 core, 12 thread CPU that matches/outperforms this CPU in most tasks for only ~$230. Granted, Ryzen tends to top out @4 GHz in this iteration whereas I've taken my 5820K to...

i7-5820K after OCing to 4.4 GHz benchmark will able to compete with 5930K

Pros: Cheapest six core CPU intel can offer.

Cons: support only 28 lane PCIE and itself is not a good overclocking chip. High V core to clock 4.4

I just fry my i7 5930 twice. first time RMA one to one exchange , this time warranty expired. no choice i chose 5820k instead of latest 6800k cos $ not enough. I using 1.3 V core to OC it to 4.2 GHz , 2666 qaud memory auto. disable intel speed step technology disable C state OC all core to 42 x100 BCLK Set all digi power control to maual freq 450 that what i do and complete stable with all type of stress test
