I ended up getting a slightly better-than-average chip and it overclocks really easily. With a little extra voltage, i was able to get a pretty stable 4.6 GHZ @ 1.36V but saw spikes of 92+C under AIDA64 loads.

from completed build Scorpio

This processor was the one I had in mind from the early beginnings, once I found that Intel processors are far better for gaming, and that overclocking would be a thing I would want to do. It has performed very well, allowing me to game on integrated graphics for a year and a half, but it will be relieved some with the introduction of my MSI R9 390 8G graphics card. Overall, this is a great processor with stellar overclocking capabilities.

from completed build The Global Offensive

I bought this because I wanted a system that could handle games for the next few years without a problem, and this has only been good since purchasing. It overclocks decently (i5-4690k's overclock better) and runs cool.

from completed build Storm Stryker Gaming Build

Great bang for your buck if you want to do PC gaming. Seems to handle everything thrown in its way, although I haven't attempted a lot of demanding programs at the same time yet.

from completed build Wandering Whisperer

Upgraded to Haswell at the last minute to squeeze a little more life into my build and because holiday sales at the time made the extra price negligible. Went i5 because I don't plan on doing anything but gaming on this machine. Might overclock a bit, might not – grabbed a K model just in case. Works perfectly. No complaints.

from completed build NeoBlue

I've actually never seen it at 100% usage yet, other than in stress testing. It renders quickly and all my programs are quick and responsive. I'm a bit squeamish at the idea of overclocking, so I don't know much about overclocking reliability, but OCGenie automatically set mine to 4GHz no problemo. I usually idle at 1-3% usage and it never goes over 60 or so degrees with my plain fan cooler. No problems with it at all

from completed build Gigan (first build)

Best bang for your buck at the time. I am only able to overclock to 4.3ghz sadly. I guess I just got a bad luck of the draw. (4.5ghz is the average) At 4.3ghz I get the same single thread speed as a stock 4790k. No problems, I recommend!

from completed build My Second Rig

Hasn't given me any problems and has been going strong for 2 years. Worked right out of the box with 0 hassle.

from completed build Project-PC: The Upgrade

In short: A powerful option for little money, although slightly outdated.

I bought this with a microcenter mobo bundle for very cheap, and it has been able to hold a stable 4.4GHz overclock with kinda high voltage. I run it at about 4.2GHz at a good voltage to reduce temps, but keep the good gaming performance. There is not much to say about it besides its the old model, but still works great and handles all games flawlessly.

from completed build First gaming build (update)

Got this chip used on amazon purely because I couldn't pass up the price. Unfortunately I have yet to dial in a solid overclock on it (due to lack of time and experience). The best I was able to do was 4.5ghz at 1.25v for 12 hours of Aida 64. Had a 4440 before which I sold to buy this and have been very happy with it
