  • For some games, a cpu with a higher clock speed, or in a technical name IPC (Instructions per clock), has better results than other CPU's with higher core count and lower core speed.
  • The i5-7600 has a higher turbo clock boost. Turbo Boost is a CPU feature that will run CPU clock speed faster than its base clock, if certain conditions are present. It will enable older software that runs on fewer cores, to perform better on newer hardware. Since games are software too, it is also applicable to them.
Ryzen 5 2600
  • The Ryzen 5 2600 has higher Level 2 Cache. Data/instructions which have to be processed can be loaded from the fast L2 and the CPU does not have to wait for the very slow DDR RAM
  • The Ryzen 5 2600 has higher Level 3 Cache. This is useful when you have substantial multiprocessing workloads, many computationally intense simultaneous processes. More likely on a server, less on a personally used computer for interactive desktop workloads.
  • The Ryzen 5 2600 has more cores. The benefit of having more cores is that the system can handle more threads. Each core can handle a separate stream of data. This architecture greatly increases the performance of a system that is running concurrent applications.
  • The Ryzen 5 2600 has more threads. Larger programs are divided into threads (small sections) so that the processor can execute them simultaneously to get faster execution.
  • The Ryzen 5 2600 has a smaller process size. The faster a transistor can toggle on and off, the faster it can do work. And transistors that turn on and off with less energy are more efficient, reducing the operating power, or “dynamic power consumption,” required by a processor.

I5-7600(kabylake) or i5-8400(coffeelake)?
Iv been collecting money to build a gaming pc(nothing else) since January 2017 and i literally cant wait anymore... coffeelake is around the corner so i convinced myself to wait for 1 more month but today i found out that i5-8400's base frequency will be 2.8 Ghz whereas i5-7600's base frequency is 3.50Ghz... the only pro i see in coffeelake is more cores which as far as i know doesn't matter in gaming pc... A gaming pc needs powerful single core rather 6 weak cores... I will get a gtx 1060 6GB(my budget wont allow me to buy GPU higher than this)...So i wanted to know guys do u think i should wait for coffeelake or go on with i5 7600?

Im not a fan boy of intel but i have always used intel thats why i still want to buy an intel processor. I would have definitely tried ryzen if i had any connection with content creation, video editing etc. In my research i have found out that if you are only gaming then intel is best and if you are gaming/video editing/content creating/streaming then buy a ryzen.
Thanks for your opinion but here in india buying an i7-7700k will go beyond my budget cause i will have to buy a motherboard that supports OC which will be expensive than the board that doesn't support OC.

whoops sorry, i mean the 7700 (non k) and in theory if you buy a unlocked cpu you can stick in a non overclocking board, many have done it because they are simply higher clocked than the locked version, though doing so you still wouldn't be able to overclock it, but you would still receive the higher stock clocks.

PUBG is not the best game to go off of when judging PC performance. It is a very poorly optimized and taxing game on even hefty rigs. If you feel a strong need to upgrade to a 20 series, then the best price to performance card will be the 2070 though there is next to no info on these cards so you are taking a bit of risk by investing in one. There has been little testing, little support and there have been some recalls on the higher tier models so keep that in mind. If you don't feel comfortable investing in one but want to upgrade, I would suggest a 1080. Sometimes you can find them on sale as cheap as 0, that is similar in price to a 2070, but 1080s are tried and true. By no means am I saying to not get a 2070, but know the risks. new tech is always risky. Just food for thought in making your decision.

Pairing an i5 7600 with a gtx 1080 oc 8gb
Will there be a bottleneck? I'm almost buying, but im quite insecure about it. i keep reading thats it's a good pairing as much as that it will bottleneck that beast of a gpu. Any ideas?

If their not much difference in price I would try for a 7600K with a Z270 board and decent air cooler so you can overclock it now or in the future for better performance.

The i5 7600 is a new processor as of now and should last you a good amount of time.

I5 7600 or I5 7600k
Currently in my system I have a G4560 and an Asus Prime B250m-A motherboard with 8GB 2400Mhz Ram. I was wondering, since my motherboard I believe doesnt support overclocking, which of the two processors, 7600 and 7600k, I should get as my upgrade. I never planned to overclock anyways. (Building a separate ryzen system I am going to overclock). The price difference where I am is minimal between the two and in stats it seems the 7600k would be the better coice overclocking or not (Difference in £10/) What are your thoughts?
Greatly appreciate any feedback thanks.

lyricsdata 1 year ago
yeah, i agree with sosofm. If your not OC'ing stick with the 7600. The difference between the chips is minimal (at stock). The 7600 has a base frequency of 3.5 with a turbo of 4.1. Okay the 7600k has a higher base clock of 3.8 but turbo's to 4.2. So in gaming the difference at stock will be 100mhz, which will translate to maybe a few FPS in gaming.

With all of that said for £10 I'd prob just get the 7600k for the few extra FPS, and in the knowledge that if you are building a Ryzen system and maybe thinking of selling the Intel system, the 7600k will retain it's value longer as it's a k version.

AMD Ryzen 3 1300x or Intel I5 7600(Non k)
Having tight budget of about 0. Building a gaming pc with Zotac GTX 1050 TI Oc (If any better in this price range please suggest me to upgrade) 8gigs of DDR4 2666 mhz corsair RAM. 1 TB HDD and 64GB SSD.and 1080p 22" IPS monitor.
Confused again so asking is RYZEN 3 1300x (Not a Ryzen Fan and heard about heating problem) better than Intel i5 7600 (non K).
I know if i go to Ryzen I will Get a better GPU but is RYZEN worth buying. If yes please tell me why?

hankessay 1 year ago

The 1300x is a MUCH better value than the 7600. The 7600 is a more powerful chip. The 1300x fits this build.

Why the SSD? After Windows is done with it there won't really be any room for games so I don't see any value there. Quicker boot times and Windows nav. is nice but I would want it to help with game load times as well. If I am going to build a gaming PC every part needs to bring something to the table for gaming. At this budget evrything needs to carry its weight. It does not.

That single stick of RAM is going to run at half-speed. That's not horrible but is certainly not good. Ryzen likes fast RAM and you have made a choice of 2666MHz RAM. Now we are looking at 1333MHz. Board and CPU designed for use with dual channel RAM needs RAM installed in pairs. Mixing and matching RAM isn't a good idea either. RAM is sold in kits for a reason. They don't pick two random modules and package them. They are tested together to ensure compatibility. WE've answered plenty of questions about those who have mixed RAM sticks. Do you feel lucky?

i5 7600 Temperature question

Today i made a test with Prime 95 for 10 min and i wait until the next test start for the 4 workers..
I got a temperature, from HWMonitor, starting off with: Idle temp: 36-38c / Min: 32c / Max: 81-85c

is this normal for this type of cpu with stock cooler?
0 0
cleaversculling 1 year ago
Those temps are high, but not for Prime95. So I would not worry about it. Prime95 is really not a good benchmarking software as it does not indicate real world performance. There is no program on the planet that will push your CPU as hard as Prime95, so why use it?

There are a lot better benchmarks out there that can simulate real world performance much better. I would start with XTU since you have an Intel CPU. If your temps are still above 80, then something may be a little off.

Will an i5-7600 bottleneck a RTX 2080 1440p/4K?
I have an i5-7600 (Non k) and want to upgrade to an rtx 2080 for high FPS 1440p and 60FPS 4K gaming. Will this CPU be sufficient for that or would it create bottlenecks? My motherboard only supports up to 7th gen and I would rather not drop more money on a CPU + all other required upgrades and just do GPU if it would work.

Intel i5 7600
I play battlefield 1 a lot but my g4560 isn't cutting it anymore. Will the i5 7600 be good enough for battlefield? Can't upgrade to coffee lake because I'm a student so I don't have that much money. And I spend 530 Euro's for my pc and my parents don't allow me to spend anymore than 200 euro's on upgrading it. Or if I wait for a couple more months i can spend more money on pc parts. (like 8 months.)

I5 7600k or i5 7600 non overclocking
Hey there , I'm on the fence if it's worth paying the extra cash for the k version with the small boost of clock vs non k version. I don't have any plans on overclocking , so I'm buying a asrock pro4 b250m mobo (I know I cannot oc with it). Before people start suggestion ryzen 5 , I don't do amd at the moment I lost lots of faith over the past 15 years. Hard to win me back unless amd is building my pc for me for free haha..

Mobo: asrock pro4 b35m

Use Core i5-7600 in a H310 motherboard?
I have an Intel 7600 that is having issues with a H110 motherboard but I can't find new ones (STX form-factor). I wanted to buy a H310 but was wondering if the chipset would support the CPU. There's no official support from Intel but given the similarities I was wondering if it would work.

Stuck between i7 7700 or i5 7600
Hi everyone. I've been looking into buying a new CPU. Currently, I'm running an i3 6100 (other specs listed below). The two main CPUs which catch my eye are the i7 7700 and i5 7600, however the non overclockable versions as I don't intend on getting a z series motherboard.

My pc use is for college work, gaming, (some cpu intensive games like ESO), movie watching and sometimes a little bit of video editing. Budget is not an issue for my CPU (it's ~£500), but any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Intel i3 6100 3.7GHz
8GB 2333MHz DDR4 ram (I think)

I5 7600 mobo and ram
Hi all, so trying to rebuild my computer preferably on a budget... Under 700 or 600 is greatly preferred but losing faith. As I keep finding relatively good priced items I keep discovering more money needing to be spent (example realizing now I think I need DDR 4ram-_-)

Tried being cheap: I asked IT friends for help and wasted time and money getting a new video card ( http://), motherboard (http://) and processor ( http://). . that were fortunately able to be returned to newegg for my computer literally did not stay but one minute on without freezing (no idea what was happening) but... I realize I can't be cheap and get what I want. So...

Bigger budget: I did my own research using http://m.cpubenchmark.net as a guide and various Google sites mostly this site (love this place) and I came up with an idea. I was thinking of getting the following:
Video card: Nvidia GTX 1060 http://
Processor: Intel Core i5-7600K Kaby Lake Quad-Core 3.8 GHz (http://

Extra notes:
1. I don't plan on over clocking (don't trust myself lol)
2. To be perfectly honest at the current moment the only game I want to play is World of Warcraft smooth, high settings preferred.
3. I have ddr3 ram 4gb, power supply 600w, will be purchasing windows ten 64bit and have a ssd 125gb and an older hard drive at 1tb.

So here are my questions:
1. Which motherboard(s) is best for this processor?
2.Do you have a recommendation(s) on a different (whether be better and/or more cost effective) video card and processor than what I chose and linked?
3. Any recommendations on cpu fans (no I don't have a good one. Two I have, one is old and one is for amd)
4. Will I have to buy DDR4 RAM? I see this as yet another 0 =/.
5. Are there other parts I need to buy so I don't get surprised at the time I put this all together?

HUGE. Thanks for any help and taking the time to read this. Sorry it's long winded (accountant ><)

i5-7600 or i7-6700
So I am currently upgrading most of my PC, and just yesterday I asked a question on this site on whether to pick an i5-7600 or go invest the extra money in an i7
Ulitmately I decided on the i5-7600 because of the relatively low price, and seemingly good performance, but now it just so happens that I've been offered the i7-6700 for the same price as an i5-7600

So my question is what would be the wisest investment, I would like it to last quite a while, before I make another upgrade, so I would like to be ready for an upgrade in GFX card, and higher resolutions.

I will also be upgrading my motherboard and ram in the process, to the following:

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z170X-Gaming 3

Ram: Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4-3000 DC 2x8 GB

Graphics card: ASUS Strix GTX 970

(If you see any poor decisions in my upgrades, please don't hesitate to say so)

Thanks in advance

And I currently play games at 1080p

i5-7600 vs i5-7600k for Non-Overclocking Build
Hello, I am currently looking at CPUs for a Kaby Lake build and I am torn between the i5-7600 and the i5-7600K. The price difference is only and the K has slightly better clock speeds. However, I do not plan on overclocking (Using an H270 mobo). Which one should I go for? Will the K run fine without an overclock? (I understand that the K does not include a cooler, so I would have to get a Cryorig H7 or something.)

i5-6600 or i5-7600?
I am currently thinking of upgrading my system,

CPU: Intel Core i5-6500 3.2GHz Quad-Core Processor

Memory: G.Skill NT Series 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR4-2133 Memory

, but I am unsure of the route I should go. I am planning on upgrading my gpu to the msi gtx 1070 quicksilver, and I have a chance to upgrade my cpu for free to either a i5-6600 or i5-6700. Which I would also be upgrading my MOBO to either the msi B150 Bazooka Plus, or msi B250 Bazooka. I could sure use some advice. Is the 7600 going to work well with the 1070 or should I just stick to a 6600, which is proven?

Trying to decide: i5 7600 or i5 8400
I'm trying to decide which one would be better buy considering my circumstances.
I mainly will be doing photo editing, and possibly some light video editing too. I do want something that will also be able to play games for the next few years as well. I don't overclock my computers.

They are both essentially the same price (maybe difference which is irrelevant for decision making at that little of a price difference). I have chose the board which will support either processor.

I'm tempted by the 6-core mainly for media creation and photo editing, but I am a bit concerned about the clock speed and future usage. 2.8 GHz vs 3.5 Ghz quad core. I have yet to see many games that require a six core, but some have some higher-end requirements, like at least a 3 Ghz quad core, so I'm a bit concerned in that regard if I do happen to play some newer games. Since I don't overclock, the unlocked multiplier of the "K" processors doesn't matter to me. And I will be using a dedicated PCI-E graphics card, so onboard graphics are irrelevant too.

What would people suggest in this situation? I mostly will be doing productivity, media creation (light) and photo editing. With the possibility of some light gaming?

I5 6600k or i5 7600 (non k)
Hello this is my first post, I am building my first PC and I want to know which is better, an i5 6600k or an i5 7600 non k.

So, here is the matter, I am from Uruguay, and hardware is pretty expensive, and the importation taxes are like 60 or 70 percent of the total purchase, so no amazon to me.
I am not able to get a 7600k version, so I am wondering among those two... I was planning to buy an i7 7700k, but after reading a lot, there's some heat issues and after reading more, I decided I will not need (I think) the hyperthread for gaming (which is the main purpose of the pc).

My (planned) build:

Msi z270 gaming m3..........................................230$
Msi gtx 1060 gaming x ......................................460$
Kingston Hyperx Fury Ddr4 8gb 2666mhz........85$
Cougar stx550 80+............................................ 66$
Cougar mx300 case...........................................55$
Storage from previous laptop and old pc ~1tb

I5 6600k is 350$
I5 7600 is 335$
I7 7700k is 515$
I7 6700k is 505$
If I go i5 I can afford an intel 600p m.2 ssd wich is 180$ wit 256gb for OS installation.
And depending on the cpu I will choose the cooler. Not many options, CM v8 gts for like 180$, a TT nic c5 for around 80$ or a corsair Hydro H80I GT that is 165$

[If I go 'k', I will overclock. And I want that board for any update if I ever decide to go i7 (6th or 7th gen).]

All prices are on US dollars.
Sorry for long post.
Sorry if I made any grammar error.

i5 7600 (non k) frequency problem?
So the i5 7600 has a base clock of 3.5ghz but even in idle it says it runs at 4ghz, why is that?

MB : MSI B150M PRO-VDH, bios settings set to default
PSU : Corsair cx 500

AMD FX 6300 upgrade Intel i5 7600
AMD FX 6300 upgrade Intel i5 7600? When it comes out? Will this resolve most bottlenecks that the FX 6300 have?

I am upgrading my AMD FX 6300 to Intel i5 7600 once it comes out?
Will that be a good upgrade?

I already have a Evga 600 Watts PSU (BRONZE 80 PLUS)

I know i have a Desktop Windows 10 - 6950X CPU Computer, but that will be mostly use for
many virtual machines.

i5 7600k vs i5 7600
7600 or 7600k, which one is better in performance if I don't overclock the 7600k? I know 7600k has 300Mhz more base clock speed and 100Mhz more turbo speed but does it really make a difference?

i5 7600 4.0GHZ?
May someone explain "Boost clock" ?
The base clock for this CPU is 3.5GHZ, and the MAX turbo clock is 4.0GHZ. Whenever I look at my CPU clocks, it is always on 4GHZ constant even when I have NOTHING open. Should I be worried about this? Aren't turbo frequencies only there when it NEEDS to push itself harder?

Thank you.

From I5 4460 to I5 7600 is it really worth it?
As the title says i'm planning on doing an upgrade to my pc. I've got a i5 4460 + 8gb ram ddr3 and a gtx 970. So i was planning on buying a i5 7600 + 16gb ram ddr4 and a new mobo (asus prime b250 pro gaming) but i don't know if it is worth the money. What do you guys recommend? (don't want a K processor because they are more expensive)

i5 4460 or i5 7600
Hello i decided to upgrade my pc setup because i run heavy games with my i3 and i do get laggs in gta v and a couple of people told me thats about my i3 so now i cant choose between the i5 4460 and the i5 7600 i know the i7 7600 is better but i got a budget around 500euro so i thought what about if i would change also my gpu to gtx 1060 and i5 4460 with gtx 1060 would perform great i think. If i would buy the i5 7600 then i couldnt change my gpu because then i have to put in 500 euro to change my processor ram and motherboard and i would use my pc for gaming video editing and later when i do get better internet connection for livestreaming also and i own now a gtx 750 ti 2gb

Core i5 7600 vs 7600K
I am hoping someone can help with an opinion.
I bought a Shuttle XPC XH110V to build (which I have before) and a Core i5 7600K because i understood they supported Gen 7. However, the K version of the 7600 is not listed on there compatibility list. - http://global.shuttle.com/products/productsSupportList?productId=2007

Will it run?
I have already installed and will (I assume) lose heavily if I have to sell 2nd hand and buy the 7600 vanilla.
Any thoughts
