    Intel's Skylake-X, Kaby Lake-X HEDT CPUs to use TIM; Won't be Soldered

    6+8 = 14MB instead of 15MB 8+11 = 19MB instead of 20 MB. And caches are no longer inclusive. Which we don't know how well it would work. I think Intel did mistake of not having large L3 cache. These cores require larger data pool. And when these CPUs ran with only two cores active, large L3...

    Intel's Skylake-X, Kaby Lake-X HEDT CPUs to use TIM; Won't be Soldered

    But it's durable. 3 years working well, and 5+ years still working properly. And all you need to do is powering down PC on night each day for 30 days. I had my suspicions when they named it SKY-X instead of SKY-E.

    Core i7-4960X First Extreme-Tier Intel Chip to Ship in a Blue Box

    Wait a minute, wasn't black box one of reason why users bought X CPUs? Otherwise they simply overclocked these cheaper CPUs and were fine.

    Intel Haswell i5-4670K and i7-4770K Comparison

    I doubt that. That i5 looks like a bad chip, or bad overclocker. BTW would you run test with something that really taxes the CPU, like with 4 instances of Dwarven fortress? World generation is quite meaty, and well, it took about 20 minutes on my computer, at least that version I tried. I...

    Intel Haswell i5-4670K and i7-4770K Comparison

    Wow I thought I'd write rest of the review out of pity when I'd get my i7-4820K. That's quite a difference when I compare it to PSU reviews. Well I'm not your superior to find all problems in your review and force you to remedy them, it's a sign of quality reviewer to make his own stuff and...
