September 2019

Computer runs really smooth, maybe a little hot running but this is a known effect.


August 2019

Used this processor for a new build, to replace my aging pc. Very pleased with the performance [mainly using it for music production], easy to install on the motherboard.


July 2019

Really fast CPU. Value for money. Easy install instructions. Would definitely recommend it.

April 2019

Very happy


April 2019

Brilliant upgrade - easy to fit and stunning speed for my work


November 2018

Haven't had a single problem to-date.


October 2018

It's a great CPU that runs hot. Make sure you have adequate cooling. An AIO is needed at the very least if you're overclocking it. Delidding and liquid metal needed for going over 5.0 ghz.

Upgraded from a 2500k , well worth it . great processor and great service from CCL


October 2018

Excellent processor, no problems like overheating or anything wrong once installed. Great for video and photo editing and also for gaming. It's a fairly hefty price tag but it's certainly worth it!


October 2018

Great processor, fast and plenty of core's witch is perfect for my music production, and the odd game or two. Can't fault it.
