everything i need, great!!

Intel has always been a leader in computer electronics and make no mistake, this CPU is a cracking piece of hardware. 3.6ghz base with an OC potential of 4.8, and 5.1 if youre brave with the right cooling method. I have had no issues since used in a new build with Rtx 2080 super and mounted on a Z390 Aourus master mobo. I will enjoy a long lasting life from this cpu until intel can crack a new architecture.
