Q: Does this CPU require that a motherboard with 2 x 8pin both be connected. or is 1 x 8pin ok
Answer by Website User on 8th March 2022
1 x 8pin would be sufficient (as there are boards with only a single 8-pin that support this processor), however if your motherboard has more than this you would still likely need both connectors to be used or your system may not post.

Works well. Decent speed. The stock cooler is a bit loud, even on low load

A cracking processor for gaming or general computing. Suitable motherboards aren't the cheapest but they'll soon come down in price. The only let down is the included Intel cooler. When the cpu is under load and getting hotter the cooler sounds like it's about to take off. I definitely recommend replacing it with an aftermarket cooler.

Upgraded from a i5-6400, Huge improvment. Before I wasn't able to run Warzone and discord together, running virtual machines was slow aswell and gaming performance was potato reaching up-to 100% cpu utilisation on every triple A level game titles which left no room for my PC to work on other tasks. Paired with a 3060ti, the 6-cores and the increased instruction per clock (IPC) now allows it to carry out tasks without a CPU bottleneck, as of early 2022 it runs every game perfectly without an issue. The stock cooler isn't great when the CPU reaches 4ghz+ you'll be reaching high of 70 degrees (Very Hot) with the fan speed maxed out which can be annoying as its very loud and without proper airflow (which is a must) can heat up and even melt your side panel. One way to solve that would be to get a custom air cooler or lower the maximum processor state that way it will never reach 4ghz but it be a lot quieter and still give great performance. If your going with a 3rd-party cooler with this CPU and have good airlfow, then I reccomened it, however if you're on a tighter budget than I reccomend the 12400 as a better value for money option.

Super smooth CPU not stress tested it but Windows 11 running great I'm not a gamer more web browsing, watching video and using office suite, had no issues at all. Using stock cooler temps are low and cannot really hear the fan.
