— Not the fastest, but it won't bankrupt you. A good stand-in until I can upgrade.

— Upgrading from a GTX 560, this thing blows my mind. I've never been able to run games at such high quality before, and now that I can I never want to go back. The only con is I have a Founders Edition, and the single-fan cooler it comes with sucks. It's loud and does a bad job of keeping the temps down without a very extreme fan curve, and even capped at 60fps (my monitor is 60hz) it still gets up into the high 70s (celsius). But the pros much outweigh the cons, and this thing is still relevant and doing just fine in 2022.

Core i5-12600K - Good 2 years ago.
Processors

— Pros: Great balance of price and performance, doesn't require a ridiculous cooler to perform well Cons: DDR5 is EXPENSIVE and DDR4 options are limited, but that's pretty much it. Equals: Does what it needs to do without breaking the bank

Why does UserBenchmark have a bad reputation on reddit?
Marketers operate thousands of reddit accounts. Our benchmarks expose their spiel so they attack our reputation.
Why don’t PC brands endorse UserBenchmark?
Brands make boatloads on flagships like the 4090 and 14900KS. We help users get similar real-world performance for less money.
Why don’t youtubers promote UserBenchmark?
We don't pay youtubers, so they don't praise us. Moreover, our data obstructs youtubers who promote overpriced or inferior products.
Why does UserBenchmark have negative trustpilot reviews?
The 200+ trustpilot reviews are mostly written by virgin marketing accounts. Real users don't give a monkey's about big brands.
Why is UserBenchmark popular with users?
Instead of pursuing brands for sponsorship, we've spent 13 years publishing real-world data for users.
