Deal Details

Last Edited by mlacey3 August 9, 2016 at 04:49 PM
I searched and did not see this posted. Amazon has just dropped the price of the i5-6600k to $109.99. This has been slightly cheaper before on Frys for in store pickup only, or from Jet for new accounts only, but fulfilled by 3rd party sellers, and matched the Microcenter price for in store only, but as far as Amazon, this is a record low according to camel.

Intel Boxed Core I5-6600K 3.50 GHz, 6 M Processor Cache 6 for LGA 1151:Also available from NewEgg:

They finally matched Microcenter.

Also, Staples carries this processor now. You can 110% PM to Amazon for a price of $203.60, plus significantly better cashback/discounted GC rates than you can get at Amazon, especially if you have any $80/$100 or $85/$100 Staples GC from the last eBay deal.

I compared this to the 2500k the 2011 chip to this using a website and this 6600k won all the benchmarks by about a 30% lead i don;t think that is worth the time and money to build and replace. Unless someone can convince me otherwise. I do not game and anyway from what i see browsers under the right load of tabs and windows consume more resources than games without factoring a gfx card use. I find the cpu to be good enough, but it could be faster. I just don't think this chip will create a noticeable difference in real world.

depends on what you do. an old q6600 is fine for web browsing

it's also everything else that goes along with the chip. z170 supports ddr4, m2 hard drives, all the newest tech

gaming or intensive cad / photo work are typically where i've noticed the upgrades happening the most frequent

only if you care about Pcie3, instruction sets (HEVC, VP9, VTx) as well as substantial power savings over 2500k but I think you are right, wait for the next die shrink if it ever comes.

Have you tried overclocking your 2500k? Most can easily go to 4.2GHz-4.4GHz with stock cooler and without increasing the voltage. This adds a bit of longevity to your machine and most likely will see you thru the next 2 CPU releases before you NEED to upgrade.. I have a 2500k and i am waiting for Kaby Lake(Dec 2016) before I upgrade and only upgrading then so i can use my new M.2 SSD to the fullest. The plan is to use old 2500k with 970GTX for kick down machine so guests can game.

Kaby Lake should be a game changer with respect to HEVC support as well.
