Summary: Ottimo processore. Veloce e affidabile. Il top della serie per sk 775. Per chi possiede ancora questo tipo di socket è il massimo. Oggi il rapporto costo / prestazioni è più conveniente che mai.
Summary: It arrived a day earlier than expected. It IS new (new, old stock) or, considering the amazing price, maybe an unused pull? It included a genuine Intel Core 2 Extreme heatsink, which was not mentioned. Has been testing for the past couple days and it's working perfectly! I'll happy recommend buying from ETARATECH!
Summary: I've got an older motherboard that's been abused while overclocking, but I was still able to get this to 4.2ghz instantly with very little tweaking. As soon as I get some time I'm sure I can go beyond that as well. With the overclock my benchmarks are on par with a new i7, so this easy and relatively inexpensive upgrade has further extended the life of my system.
Summary: Had an Intel motherboard with socket 775, to built a media computer, since I was planing to use a blue ray drive and tuner, thought I needed at least a 3 GHz multicore. Can say I was mistaken! Pros: Extremely fast. Hasn't complain yet to complex multitasking. Have another computer for Photoshop, with 965, 7i core processor. I can not tell which one is faster. Cons: None to the moment.
A decent processor for final upgrade on socket 775 if you get decent price

Summary: Its a great processor. The 1* review on performance says a CPU with a 2100 benchmark on the most authoritative site is better than this one, which benchmarks over 4000. I seriously question this. OTOH why someone would spend $180 on this when they could just buy a great board and new i5; that is another question. Certainly a decent processor, but at the prices some ask I'd just put my ram into a mobo that is current (and will have a better future)and get a new processor.
