Great product.


July 2022

Great CPU and at the lowest price in I could find online and from a very reputable seller too. Always check CCL for price comparison.


July 2022

So far, this does exactly what I wanted - very glad I didn't go with the i7 when not needed.


June 2022

Outperforms a lot of higher priced chips, the compatibility with DDR5 and Gen 5 PCIe is just the cherry on top

Blazing fast with my NZXT Kraken super cool, Love it

Perfect CPU for what I needed and at a great price.

I would like to start this by saying I had a really bad CPU. My other components were crying because my old CPU could not handle the necessary performance requirements. When I got the Intel Core i5 12600k my whole world literally changed. Everything was running as smooth as melted butter. Faster than Usain running the 100m track. This CPU is phenomenal. It's life changing. I used to play Tetris on low graphics at 20fps now I can play Minecraft with any texture, any number of mods with unlimited FPS unlimited potential. Without this piece of hardware I couldn't not unleash the potential that I have right now after installing this device. The installation was very easy, plug and play so to speak. The motherboard that I purchased with this CPU is out of this world too. Very good product if I ever need a new CPU I will always come back to Intel and buy it from CCL. Very good and very well.

Honestly 5 star processor no doubt about it. This mid to high end CPU to me is where Intel really shines. I know AMD have always been very good on their price to performance, but I recommend anyone looking for a CPU on a reasonable budget to definitely consider the i5 12600k. With all the hype generally being centered around the i7 & i9 processors these days, i feel as though the i5 range (which 6 - 10 years ago received just as much hype) doesn't now get the attention it deserves and seems to be pushed to the back bench. At 3.7ghz (4.9ghz boost!) for the performance and 3.6ghz for the efficentcy cores, making a 10 core, 16 thread beast, this absolutely flies in content creation and games! I upgraded from a 6600k and straight away the performance was insane. Never did i ever think that the i5 range would move out of the quad core seat it was ever so used to being placed in. The efficiency cores make good use of keeping the background processes chruning while you can enjoy the full potentional of the CPU during the long gaming sessions. Downloading games in the background and not having to take a hit or wait during your gaming sessions has never been so seemless, and for those making use during photo or video editing this also applies in a very similar way. The processor does make use of the new DDR5 memory (RAM) but until that stabalises and reaches a more attractive price point, i really don't feel it being neccesary. For gamers, this would make a very incremental perfomance increase, if any, from the reviews and benchmarks i have seen. So as you can guess i remained with the sensible DDR4 motherboard option. Now if you're debating between this or the AMD equivelant (5700x) at the same price point, my only question would be, do you already have an AM4 motherboard or looking to upgrade your motherboard? If you're looking to upgrade the CPU and have an AM4 motherboard, well, i'd say to go with the 5700x and save yourself some money or put the extra money elsewhere, but if you're looking to upgrade completely then i suggest the i5 without a doubt.

This Great budget i5 core is beating up i9 11900K HAHAa what a choice for my rig.


March 2022

Very powerful processor that runs cool with an aftermarket cooler. Pretty much overclocked out of the box, so pairs great with a budget board.

Was going to build an AMD system, but with the launch of 12th gen Intel I changed my mind, this CPU is mind-blowing with its P and E cores.

Super fast, fantastic, blazing fast cpu at present. Intel you really have done it. Thats true, P cores and E cores. Wowwww, wowwww, P cores work with the things u r doing infront of your screen and E cores wowwww, will take care all of your background processes. Intel is back now definitely, but listen intel: KEEP YOUR PRICES LOW, if you did again that mistake that you have done in past, then u will be out of game again.
