Really good CPU, would recommend

Riley Fullick

January 2023

Very powerful CPU, really big fan of it and good for the price I paid


November 2022

Extremely powerful, easy to cool and consistently reliable and CCL provide a great service with a streamlined and reliable process.


July 2022

Very fast processor at a fantastic price from CCL. No issues, apart from the Corsair H100i requiring new standoffs.

Cool, quiet, gorgeous and blisteringly fast

John Hughes

May 2022

Not much to say about this thing, everything just opens as soon as you click the mouse, I knew it was more than I needed prior to buying it but I wanted the extra performance for future proofing my pc.


May 2022

Migrated back to Intel after 3 years of AMD Ryzen 7 2700X. Massive improvement both in games and daily stuff.


April 2022

A powerful beast, but needs a cooler to keep it cool, I'm using a Noctua NH-D15S cooler which I've found to be great. worth it for gaming and will last you a fair few years.


March 2022

great quality product works so well fast. temps stay low overall i am so happy with this product definitely value for money

Alan Broadhurst

Since i jumped from an I5 4590S which was only a four core processor, this just walks all over it, stable, fast, reliable..


February 2022

Very good CPU, everything loads within seconds, if not instantly. Be sure to check if you need the extra cores, as I do regret spending the additional 100 on this i7 over the i5 12600k for cores that I don't need. Can't fault the CPU though.

Got this during Christmas discount period. Great processor. Fast delivery from CCL.


January 2022

Absolutely amazing CPU. It is pretty much tied with the 12900k for the best current-gen performance in gaming and completely beats out Zen3 CPUs of the same price range (eg. 5900x). One thing to mention is that in terms of value for money for pure gaming, others might consider a 12600k. You also need quite a beefy cooler to run CPU intensive tasks that include AVX2 instructions; my Noctua NH-D15S barely keeps up at some points.
