Summary: Lightning fast Processor. Still holds up quite well, despite Haswell being out. Overclocked to 4.8ghz without much hassle, and is kept relatively cool by a h100. 4 stars because Haswell is out, and you should probably get that instead of this :P
Summary: I purchased this with the stock fan for my Father's pc. It is a speedy CPU even with only a mild OC. He is very happy with it and uses the pc to stream videos to his TV and mild gaming. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a great CPU
Summary: I overclocked this processor on the stock heat sink and fan combo to 4.0 GHz while maintaining temps <70. I dialed it back to 3.8 on stock voltage until I decide on a cooling path. CPU performs as expected.
