    2 x Intel Xeon 2670.

    Had them around 6 months now (second hand from server pulls). Still doing the job and imagine they will for a good few more years. Hoping games and software start to use multi-core more and more then I definitely won't need to upgrade for a good while!

    FX8350 - cheap, cheerful and does what I need it to do (runs games at 1080p on max settings paired with my 1070, and that's without an OC) - maybe in a couple of years if I start gaming at 1440 on the regular I'll change it, but so far so good but I think I will be getting a 212 Evo cooler to push the speed up a little first though!

    i5-6400 as a temporary placeholder, to be swapped for 7700K

    Re: QOTW: Which CPU is inside your PC(s)?

    Xeon E3 1230 V2/Core i7 3770.

    Motherboard might be having some issues,so hopefully it will last long enough for AM4 and Zen,but might have to upgrade earlier at this rate.

    If it were not for that,I would be keeping it for another year or two. I don't tend to buy very high end cards,so don't really hit the CPU limit that much I suspect.

    The other PC I kind of use,still has the A6 3670K I won off Hexus years ago,and for general purpose duties is still fine.

    FX 8150 in my main and FX 6300 in my second PC. The FX 6300 seems to be a painful bottleneck in many games where the FX 8150 is not with the same GPU.

    Re: QOTW: Which CPU is inside your PC(s)?

    Intel still haven't given me a compelling reason to upgrade. I just need to set aside some time to OC it and BOOM: instant (free) performance upgrade

    I should be thanking them though, all that money normally spent on PC upgrades has gone into photography equipment instead
