Good value CPU

It's fast and runs cool with the right cooler. Note, along with a z690 mother board, you need an aftermarket LGA 1700 compatible cooler for the CPU (it doesn't come bundled with one) and PB Tech wasn't stocking any at time of review. Would buy again.

Performed as expected great value

Did my research and price/performance didn't disappoint - coming from a coffee lake i5 the jump in performance is most noticeable and my games run extremely well - 60fps @ 1440p Ultra no problems coupled with the newly acquired 3060Ti.. a happy camper recommend.. PSA - if you need performance for gaming AAA but aren't doing hi end video or 3D rendering or any other extreme process - then this is the CPU for you.

Good... not great

I built 2 pcs;
12600ks with noctua air cooler
12600k with corsair h100 aio

When overclocking thermals and power draw rise very quick... I settled for a balance of thermals and performance rather than maximum perormance...

I think the IHS on the 12600ks is better from my limited experience with just 2 cpus

For the price and thermals the 12600ks wins, but Im not so sure I would say 12th gen is a win over amd 5800x...

Back to i5, but nice.

This thing is excellent. easy to install no problems so far on my rig.
Will need to upgrade my GTX980 years before this has a issue with performance.

Absolutely AWESOME!!

What a fantastic CPU, had read up about it in cpu usermark comparison and was sceptical, oh my word, this CPU is a beast. I ave this cpu working with a RTX 2070 super and I feel this out performs my ryzen 9 3900x with rxt 3080, while gaming and streaming. Best buy

Perfect gaming/productivity CPU and worth OCing

Overclocked to 5.3/5.2/5 GHz (2core/4c/6c) very easily, at 1.34 peak VCORE and temps not exceeding 60c with a deepcool castle AIO cooler. You mileage will vary, but it's definitely worth overclocking if you're doing anything that'll benefit from the higher clock speeds.

Better than a 12900K for most games imo. And requires a lot less cooling and power to run.

Seems to do what my research told me!

I choose this CPU for a couple reasons and I'm definitely happy with the result.
The onboard graphics is a huge plus, completely worth the extra $ over the F variant. Both the Rendering performance for an I5 chip and the ability to troubleshoot my gpu!
Im cooling it with a Noctua UH12s redux and its chilling at about 32 degrees.
To be honest. if your just gaming and socialmeda-ing then you could definitely save the cost and hit the 12400 but if you see this on special, its a no brainer.

Amazing bang for buck

Basically the go to CPU right now, reviews are accurate, it's good, going any more expensive isn't really needed unless you have specific use cases.

SPECS VS PRICE , THE 12600K IS IDEAL.

It's running very cool with a nh -15s strapped to it @ 24c .at idle .

I would class this cpu as an entry-level cpu , good for most things , if you require more grunt the i7 and the i9 are for you ,
