Summary: My processor arrived promptly and with extra goodies like a static strap, decals, and thermal paste. Processor works like a charm! I will buy from them again when I need something else. Did I say the seller is great? She is!
Summary: Happy and works well for what i need it to do. Small business office computer processing lots of spreed sheets and construction site photos. Upgraded from the 2.6 and definitely a noticeable upgrade.
Summary: The Good: I bought this processor to "top out" my EVGA 780 SLI MB. I have already maxed the memory and run a Gigabyte GTX 760 for video. I normally don't expect additional FPS in games from a modest CPU upgrade but was pleasantly surprised with an approx 15% improvement across most games. The CPU runs stable, install was easy and I've had no issues.
Summary: Processor worked right out of the box. I did need to adjust the multiplier on the MB after installing, as the MB initially under-clocked the processor to 2.6Ghtz instead of the 3Ghtz. A quick bios fix and now it is running 3Ghtz on all 4 cores. Item came nicely packaged in static-dissipative bag and even included a small packet of thermal compound.
