    Intel has made a really fast CPU

    I like the CPU because of the speed and easy install with no problems. I use two 140 Cooler Master radiator fans to keep the unit cool. I totally rebuilt my computer with a Asus Rog 790Z board, 5 M.2 drives. I get a total boot up in 15 Seconds. I use the unit for Data, Video and music. I’ve used intel chips and Asus Boards for over 30 years and never had a problem. With this package I get instant access to all my files. Very happy with my purchase.

    Super fast

    I really enjoy the speed of this processor. IO would definitely use this again on another build. Didn’t rate the gaming because I am not a gamer but I would expect it would be great for that as well.

    Arrived used?

    It arrived in a sealed package but it was stained and with a thumbprint on it. Looks like it might have had thermal paste removed? I’m not crazy about that because I paid for new, but it seems to work fine.

    A very user-friendly product

    I don’t think anyone would say no to this Intel core because it’s so user-friendly. I put it on the console in my esports room, and it’s really smooth when playing games. There have been no issues with overheating or slow operation so far, so I may need to wait until I evaluate it after using it for a period of time.Overall, this is a very useful product, and I hope more people can see it!

    Great so far, one gen newer with no real improvements.

    It was either this one or the 13th gen. I went with this one for the few extra bucks to stay up to date with things longer. Works great so far with no issues.

    Runs hot, get a good cooler!

    Awesome CPU thing can handle anything and everything for at least my needs as a gamer, and programmer! HIGHLY SUGGEST getting a 360 AIO or a custom water loop, and a CPU bracket if you are getting this CPU. It run’s very hot getting a CPU bracket cut down my temps about 5-10 degrees. I’m not sure how good air coolers are for this CPU but I’ve seen a lot of people not suggest it. I use a 360 AIO Loop and it works great at keeping this thing cool!

    Very good upgrade!!

    I bought this cpu to upgrade form the fx8350 I was running and I have to say paired with a rtx 2060 supper runs smooth at 4k 60fps with no problems what so ever, I would definitely recommend this cpu to anyone needing a upgrade form later gen cpus.

    Very good and reliable processor

    Very good processor, upgraded form a very nice Ryzen 1700 (6 years old with me) to this one, decided to go intel due to memory stability. After 3 weeks I can say I love it, very nice temps while gaming and I’ve received around a 60% improvement in my games (I maintained my RTX3070). I’m currently using a NZXT Kraken Elite 360 AIO to cool it and it has been showing around 50-60 C during high intensive gaming which is very good. Went with this over the 7800X3D since I feel this is more future proof for productivity since I upgrade every 5-6 years. While I know the AM5 socket will last longer, anyways, every time I upgrade I also upgrade the motherboard. Very nice product, will recommend it.

    Very good CPU for work use.

    This CPU is for work use. It is very stable at stock speeds. It worked great right out of the box. I doubt if I will ever have to think about it again. I recommend it for real world use. As for gaming, I just can’t say how it would perform.

    She’s a beast, but so HOT!!

    I guess everyone is right, these things are hot and then some. I went with a off brand AIO, and for the most part I’m good. It does get spicy when I’m rendering or doing some crazy multi tasking.Gaming seems fine, no issues. I play all kinds of games, FPS, MMO’s, survival, etc. (Paired with a Gigabyte Gaming 4090 OC, Tforce 64 gigs 6000 M/T DDR5, samsung 990 pro NVME 2 tb x2, no OCing done by me.)I replaced a 5950x, which was having issues for some reason, just felt like it was getting slower and slower, thermal paste and heat were fine on it, never got over 60c with the beefier AIO I had on it. Just took longer and longer to render things. I guess I wore it out!I just think you’ll want a good AIO, and/or a solid water cooling solution for this to really get the best out of it. I’m not sure a air cooled option will do you any good, but hey I’ve been wrong many times, so there might be something that can handle the job.All in all, not bad, but it’s not going to give you much performance boost over last gen, matter of fact I found out later 13700k beats it in a lot of tests, blargh! Either way, its fast, and it runs everything great, so I’m happy till the next go around.

    Running air cooled on DeepCool Assassin IV with ease

    So far so good. This CPU is a monster and runs very nicely and boosts to max clocks (6ghz on two cores and 5.7ghz on all cores) unlimited TDP settings but thermally limited at 90c with -60mV offset. I have noticed that it runs a bit cooler than my previous 13900KF, especially when you consider the core to core deltas. I use my PC mostly for gaming and encoding, so as long as you have a great case with plenty of air flow and a top notch cooler, you can easily run it air cooled without issues as it will just throttle itself when it hits whatever thermal maximum you set in the UEFI BIOS.In gaming workloads it never throttles though and stays at 5.7ghz all core boost the entire time with temps in CPU intensive games anywhere from the upper 50s to mid 60s and upper 40s to mid 50s in non CPU intensive games**Update**I have the CPU now at 5.8ghz with HT disabled and a -75mV offset and it’s working like a charm and very stable in gaming workloads and encoding (it downclocks when it hits 90c for encoding workloads but for gaming it stays at 5.8ghz), which is amazing since it’s on an air cooled setup, though the setup is as optimal as it gets for air cooling! As for temps, they are a little lower than running it at 5.7ghz with HT enabled and a -50mV offset. If I use a -75mV offset with 5.8ghz and HT enabled, my PC crashes. So disabling HT definitely enables the CPU to use less power.If you’re predominantly using your machine for gaming, then I definitely recommend turning HT off regardless as most games tend to run better with HT disabled. But if you’re using it for productivity or a blend of both productivity and gaming, then definitely turn HT on.The only mildly disappointing thing for me is that the memory controller isn’t as good as I thought it would be. Mine runs 48GB DDR5 7400 CL34 at 1.35V on the IMC, but to hit DDR5 7600 CL36 with stability I need to increase the IMC voltage to 1.41V which just isn’t worth it if you ask me for such a minor bump in performance. My previous 13900KF could do 48GB DDR5 7800 at 1.36V on the IMC.Core wise though, the CPU is definitely superior to 13th gen.

    great cpu, not as powerful as I thought it would be

    great cpu, not as powerful as I thought it would be. Ended up going with a 14700k, just seemed a bit laggy even when running at 5.8 all core.. great cpu though and runs cool

    I’m not going to go over the same performance reviews others have done, yes its very fast for only $550 its the king of the poor mans build PC. my last PC its replacing was a $1000 10980xe and looking at the numbers the 14900k in average is 70-77% faster than the 10980xe. the only disadvantage between the 2 was the 10980xe had 48 PCIe lanes and ran 32c to 56c hot.i can’t say the same about the 14900k heat, its spreader is almost half of the 10980xe. you can’t just simply add a stock cooler or a “MC’watercooler” and expect the problem will solve itself. this is the first CPU in my 26 yrs of building PC’s you have to plan out your cooler set up.ever since a 2012 water leak from these Mc’watercoolers (all in one 2 fan radiator kits sold by name brands) Ive never trusted them cost me $1500 in damages. The only water coolers that don’t leak for me were the ones i built but water cooling is expensive and you have to inspect them at least every 3 months for debris in the tank or leaks. with air i only have to clean the pc 2x a year.yes you can control temps with an air cooler, and get the same temps as a 3 fan radiator water cooler. I’ll post the results without adding a watt limit in the mobo post is the parts i bought to air cool running the new cinabench 2024 for 30 mins i can get max performance on a defualt non OC not hitting above 99C on the P cores1. Noctua NH-D15 chromax.Black | Dual-Tower CPU Cooler | 140mm | Black2. Noctua NF-A15 HS-PWM chromax.Black.swap (this adds a 3rd fan for the air cooler you’ll need it)3. FDXGYH 4 Pcs CPU Heatsink Fan Buckle PC Mainboard CPU Radiator Fan 12CM Wire Buckle Upper Hook Type Fixing Clip (these buckles are compatible with noctus 140mm fans)4. Easycargo 40mm Heatsink Kit 40mmx40mmx20mm (this you place on the flat base of the noctua cooler will help dissipate heat)5. Easycargo 100pcs Heatsink Assortment Kit Small Cooler Aluminum Heat (these you throw on the back of your mobo on and around the mount brackets you’ll me amazed how adding heat sinks on the back of the mobo will reduce temps)6. Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut (this is the best thermal grease cooler by 1-2c cooler than artic silver mx 6)7. Thermalright Intel 12th/13th Generation LGA1700 Anti-Bending Buckle ( a must add a little thermal grease on the cpu side flaps this buckle is 100% aluminum will al help dissipate heat.then i went to my mother board software options (mobo is an MSI MEG Z790 ACE MAX) select “CPU cooler tuning” select “tower air cooling” which will limit the wattage draw to under 300w also note if you are not using a Water Cooling Reservoir you should also use this option, water cooling a 14900k and OC really does require a reservoir, and a 4x 120 fan size radiator if you’re simply using a pre-built 2x fan radiator its not enough to handle the 14900k and the CPU is known for drawing 370w plus!!so using air cooled i got a 2371 score with no watt limiter option an temps were 78-100c on the p cores, and with the 300 watt limit the score was 2328 with temps 70-99c never hit 100c case the limiter would kick in. (note this is from CPU testing that punishes the CPU realistically i don’t see this CPU going over 88c even on the most demanding game in 3 years.i personally do not recommend OC this CPU its already been pushed to its limits by INTEL at best for another 100 watts when all you’re getting is 3-4 more FPS and that’s not worth it. and all these people bragging a 6.2-6.5ghz OC, there just flexing for clout, then they take the CPU back to default. i already have my P cores spiking to 6.002 at 288-300 watts, and under 99c temps; adding 0.198mhz will meaning nothing for apps and gaming.personal note the MSI MEG Z790 ACE MAX Gaming Motherboard is absolutely amazing at squeezing out all the performance of the 14900k worth the $700 price never crashed during testing that 26 power phases is godly compared to my last gen EVGA x299 dark had 12 phase…RIP EGA 🙁

    It’s the perfect fit for this monster PC I just built.

    A lot of people are upset with the 14900k because of the minimal performance leap thar came between it and the 13900k. I say who cares. If you have a 13900k, don’t upgrade, but if you have an older PC or 12th Gen, this is a worthy upgrade. I absolutely love mine. It’s a monster of a CPU.I honestly don’t recommend air cooling it. It can get pretty hot and there are only a small handful of air coolers that can handle this 14900k without setting power limits (which most people don’t know how to do, let alone even know what that means)If you’re not doing a custom water loop to cool your 14900k, I recommend you do what I’ve done to cool mine, you dont neeeed to, but it helps. I have an AIO (All-In-One Cooler) and I setup a push-pull configuration on my radiator. That means I have 3 fans on the bottom blowing in through the radiator, and 3 more fans blowing up and out of the case. Both are blowing upward. It creates more airflow. One side is pushing the air, the other side is helping pull that air through. Then I got a thermalright contact frame. Any LGA 1700 contact frame should work but the thermalright version is cheap. It might say 12th/13th Gen but it will also work on 14th Gen. So get an AIO, setup a push-pull fan configuration and get a contact frame. It’s helping my Temps significantly. I typically stay in the high 50’s or low 60’s during 4K gaming. This CPU draws a ton of power so you might see it bump up to 80⁰ occasionally, for a very brief moment. (Maybe 1 second or less)

    This is a Beast

While doing benchmarks, a few Pcores would hit 100c while others would hit 92c. Ecores was about 87c and low of 83c on 4.3Ghz all Pcore and 4.2Ghz all Ecore. Offset voltage was at 0.3. After switching back to auto clock, I still managed the same temps, but getting 5.1-5.2Ghz on Pcore and 4.3 on Ecore. If my case allowed 120mm fans, I would of most definitely installed 240mm AIO cooler. That for sure would of helped with the temps and get me higher benchmark numbers.When it came to rendering a 20 minute 4k video on sony Vegas Pro 18 (IGPU only), it took about 15 minutes to complete it vs my I9 9900k that would of taken over an hour to finish it (RTX 3060). This system was meant specifically VR/light video editing. So, considering how fast it is on the rendering without a dedicated GPU, I am pretty excited about it. I haven’t tried the VR aspect yet.Overall, if you are coming from a few gen older CPU and want to upgrade to the 14900k, you wont be disappointed.

    Powerful processor

    Not sure what more to say other than it’s crazy powerful. Make sure you have a high watt power supply to go with this and all the devices you plan to run with this. And really don’t go small on the CPU cooler. This thing is good at figuring out when to throttle down. You’ll get it’s best performance with a large aio water cooler. If you can build your own water cooling system, better.Also, make sure your mobo manufacturer have all the drivers available to work smoothly with these lines of processors.

    Please note that the F in the 14700KF means NO iGPU

    Wanted to purchase the unlocked version of the 20 core 14th gen processor and saw that this was a cheaper option at the time. All the description says is that “Discrete graphics is required.” It would be much more helpful by adding a line that says the F version stands for no integrated graphics card. If you’re doing any kind of workstation work such as video editing, most software will take advantage of the processor having an iGPU as well and so I’m actually losing performance with this model version. I’ll have to return the item to purchase the correct version without an F. I would give it a full 5 stars if it had the line explaining the F version.

    Beats my 5950x by 25%

    Through a series of mistakes, I ended up testing the 14900, 14900k and the 14900KF. The final one being the K variant. Here’s what I found comparing them:6.0ghz on an AI tuned Asus board. Deep cool liquid cooler keeps it in mid to low 30s idle. The Asus z790a board shows the cooler as scoring on 92 (170 norm) so not sure what’s up there but it runs like it should compared to everyone else for the most part. Used artic paste every time. Temps are fairly consistent.CPU-Z, Z90a with “auto” OC constantly shifting things on each rebootKF 6.2ghz 16,900 Stress testK 6.0ghz 17,200 stress test – drops to 16,700s when it heats up Single core 970Stock – 5.8ghz stress test 16, 200The iGPU (intel 770) was my main reason for wanting the 14900 or 14900k – Adobe uses both GPUs and the intel is a very efficient encoder, doesn’t game for beans, but the 3080ti does that job. Pretty impressive difference when editing having both GPUs working.RAM runs at 5600 on all chips XMP no problems.

    I never had a CPU on my hands before so i was really stressed out about it 😅, but i was able to mount it and it was the easiest part of my PC built, i don’t have any idea about its perfomance yet and for now i just can say that in bios mode it keeps under 95°F with the AIO cooler, i will update eventualy when i finish the OS instalation

    Runs nice and cool

    You really don’t need anything over an i5 nowadays for gaming. I used to be an i7 or i9 guy, but there isn’t a need for them for gaming only. Runs cool on air or with an AIO.

    Powerful cpu for gaming

    Love the processor, got it new and using with a rtx 4090 for 1440p. Have it paired with a z690 formula board and I have the ai optimize the cpu. On a 420 cooler it gets 60c at best with warzone 3 with 240 fps. Fast and consistent, on a 240 cooler Temps got up to 71-81c keep that in mind. Love my purchase!

    Excellent performance for general purpose use

    As a Gamer/Data Scientist/Programmer/Tinker I wanted a mainstream CPU built by a well established company. With Intel’s i9-14900K CPU I have a top of the line general purpose chip which provides above average performance in all the computational fields I have an interest in. I only gave it a 4-star rating because I had hoped that Intel would have brought the 15th generation chips out in 2023 Q4 as they said rather than just the mobile chips.

    Great cpu

    The i7 14700KF isn’t just a CPU; it’s a beast unleashed. This 20-core powerhouse purrs like a kitten under normal workloads, staying surprisingly cool thanks to its 7nm architecture. But don’t be fooled by its initial demeanor this CPU is a wolf in sheep’s clothing, ready to tear through any demanding games and content creation tasks with ease, I paired with an rx 7900 xtx and forgot about frame rate drops and stuttering.

    I had a minor hiccup with my new 14900KF, but I contacted Intel and their customer service was fantastic. They sent me a new one and it’s working great now. This thing is like a buzz saw in gaming. I have a negative offset on the voltage of -0.0500v and the hottest I’ve seen it get was 62c while playing Horizon Zero Dawn maxed at 4K. It was getting as high as 190 FPS every now and then. This CPU is brutal man. Top flight customer service too.

    Great CPU

    Decided to go Intel over AMD and this cpu will not disappoint you. I’d recommend looking into the E-Core and Pcore information before you buy, haven’t noticed any issue with it but still a nuisance

    I finally lost

    I’ve built computers for more than 20 years, and I have never in my life had so much trouble booting with stock bios settings. I think I finally lost the silicon lottery. Using an Asus mb, I had to go into bios limit voltage and manually tune each pcore. Temps were wild and out of control 100°c, clock speeds were low thermal throttling, random crashes, blue screens inability to run simple programs without them crashing and shutting down. Tried intel xtu auto overclocking, ai suite, and asus ai overclocking via bios.. none of that worked. Had to just dig into bios, set limits, and manually tune each core. Now system is stable and solid. Been benchmarking and stress testing for a few days now. Temps are great, and I am happy. Not sure if mb is culprit, gonna get another board and test the chip. Just be ready for some trouble. Looked over many forums of others having the same issues.

    So far so good.

    Sorta came from a 13900k but I gave that to a relative after their x299/i9-7940x system began to have issues. He bought a z790 board and was amazed how far ahead the 13900k is in comparison an overclocked Skylake-X processor. He fixed the issue with the x299 system, but he decided to stay with Raptor Lake. All of which is okay by me because that old 13900k had no overclocking headroom, and I could only undervolt it by 5mv before it became unstable. I was going to buy another 13900k or maybe the ks version, but I decided to wait for the 14900k.The 14900k I got on the other hand has some overclocking headroom. I already set all P-cores to 5.8GHz, while keeping the double-core Turbo Boost at 6.0GHz. I also set the cache to 5.2Ghz and it’s completely stable. I was not able to raise the multiplier at all with my 13900k. Just happy my 14900k isn’t a lottery loser.While the clock of both the 13900ks and 14900k are the same, the 13900ks has a cherry picked memory controller. If you’re looking to do a ton of RAM overclocking then the 13900ks may be the way to go…. but that’s not to say if you’d get a 14900k with a good memory controller. Both my 13900k and 14900k work with DDR5-7200 RAM with XMP set, and no adjustments to the memory controller voltages.If you’re buying the 14900k off the get-go and building a new system around it, then I recommend pairing it with a motherboard that has the BIOS Flashback feature.

    Overclocked to 5-GHZ first time! Wow

    I have been amazed on how stable and easily overclocked to such a high number. Some time I may try to go higher, but for now I can say this CPU is awesome.

    Worth it if <13th gen

    Was going to wait until 15th gen to upgrade my 10900k but decided to go for it. While the 10900k is still a powerhouse this is a good upgrade and I am happy with. This processor is ridiculously fast and handles everything we would expect it to. Cyberpunk picked up 10fps with a 3080 but runs super smooth now at 4k with RT. I did pair this with a z790 Aorus and 32gb ddr5 6400.******** AT Own Risk******* Suggest undervolting in bios if you know what you are doing. I am running this cpu 5.7 all cores - 1.24v on a custom loop. I see idle temps 31c - gaming 60c and cinebench 89c. It will run hot if you're on air and do not adjust the default voltage. There are plenty of youtube videos out there as a resource. Overall great processor

    It’s a hot one

    I had to replace my h60 to get this to run a full benchmark without hitting thermal limit of 100c with no OC. That is under full core usage during 30s intervals.Now that I replaced the cooler with an artic cooler with some kryonaut paste I have it running 5.6 all core with dual core at 5.7 and it maxes out at 87 on furmark

    High TDP and Temperatures

    A very powerful processor, but if it does not have good cooling, its functions will be limited. Currently it is working wonders together with the other components. But if they have a moderate cooling system, it is advisable to use the other brand of processors “AMD” that has half the temperatures, but with 10% to 20% less performance in some activities, and with the defects that come with not have an architecture that self-protects well or do not update its software often for better handling.Finally, I recommend the processor, only if you have a processor that does not meet current needs. My I7 6700k can do it all, but for some specific technologies, such as SSD Gen 4, peripherals with high-speed USB – C and others, it couldn’t cope.

    Does as intended. Topped the stock benchmark stats. It’s a heater but the I9s are the top performs. Recommend no smaller than a 360 cooler, I went Artic due to the increased width of their radiator core. Top temp (tuned) 95c but will play most games in the 65c range. VR put a greater heat of 91c max but the flight sim was beautiful and smooth as can be with water takeoffs and landings. This was an upgrade to a 12700kf that I chose awaiting the 14 generation processors. I have this combined with a Nvidea 4080 on a MSI z690 board with 64gb ddr4. Smooth gaming.

    Good CPU, no issues

    Upgraded from a really old CPU. It was basically between the 13700k and 14700k, and for a little bit more, I thought why not just get the 14700k. If you’re on a budget, then just get the 13700k. There’s probably no noticeable difference. It may not be the most efficient CPU, but it just works.

    14th Gen + Asrock Z790 Steel Legend Wifi = Perfect in any Unraid server

    They say the intel 14th gen chips run hot. If thats true then the AMD Ryzen 7 3700x’s run as hot as the sun because this chip is cooler than the AMD chips.It does draw a lot of power, but it has like 20 cores. Totally worth it.

    This is thing is super hot.

    May be a little excessive and unnecessary, but glad I got one when I did. Sometimes these things get hard to acquire, especially at a decent price.Seems to run a little hotter than my Ryzen 9 7950X, so I went with dual 420mm, If you buy this CPU you should really consider custom loops or large cases with 420mm AIO support.

    Results are high, like the price!

    I was never a fan of Intel’s business models of locking off cores/features to try and upsell the features back to the consumer…….That aside, Intel has always been the leader in the CPU market and while AMD has been making strides in recent years Intel is still the go to for reliability and power.Anyway…. if you have money to burn and need to upgrade due to artificial obsolesces that is the new craze of forcing people to upgrade…. well, this processor will last a long time… or until they just decide it’s not capable anymore.

    Pretty good CPU but gets hot.

    Upgraded from a 13700k and it is noticeably faster but not a huge upgrade. Only went with the 14900k as it will be the last CPU I will need to buy for at least 3 years.

    Works Great for High End Gaming and Average Workloads

    I got this CPU because I’ve been a long term Intel user and I have never had problems with them. This one replaced my i7 8700k and it is noticeably faster for my daily work (mostly Office, Internet content) and gaming (COD MW3). In terms of power consumption and heat generation, I can hardly notice it since all the workload I put on it hardly heats it up more than 45C-50C. I’m not a video/photo content creator nor a streamer, so this works for me. For example, while playing COD MW3 and Ultra settings the CPU use is about 2% while my GPU, RTX 3080, carries 98% of the bottleneck workload.

    20 modern cores per $400

    I bought it to do computations on all cores. The best value for money I could find. Requires custom loop, delliding if you want to run high boost on all cores for long periods of time. The chip is hot. I will probably drop boost clocks and undervolt to stay cool. Using Acrtic Freezer II 360.

    Gets Hot Under Loads

    Undervolt for best performance. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a very powerful processor. However there’s typically a lot of heat associated. Without undervolting, hitting its 100 degree Celsius cap is easier than it probably should be.
