Expensive. Fast. Good for oc.

  • Summary: This is a really great processor but for the money i should have stuck with the i7 920. I say this since you can find them for about 100-140$ and are about 20% slowe but almost 200$ cheaper. These are just somewhat new so that is the price you pay. They are excellent oc'ers btw.

Finally!!! FSX FPS!!!

Llarehn W., Newegg
4 July 2011
  • Summary: Ok, even with the 4.5ghz wall, I have tuned FSX to 30+FPS with my rig. A testament to the CPU's power...
  • Pros: A very powerful CPU!! Tax it and tax it and tax it some more and it still pays out. Easy to overclock.
  • Cons: The Intel "wall." I got one with a low O.C. wall. OCCT stress will not let me go over 4.5Ghz with out erros not matter what I do. Guess I'm not one of the lucky 20% that can reach past this 4.5GHz wall.

Great for a workstation

Sean, memoryexpress.com

  • Summary: If you only play games I'd recommend something else. If you use applications that are heavily threaded then this can be worth the money.
  • Pros: Rips through multi-threaded photoshop and lightroom routines like there's no tomorrow. Will make your friends with Mac computers envious at the price/performance of this PC cpu. Great for virtualbox/vmware.
  • Cons: Little too pricey for single-threaded applications. I couldn't get mine to overclock and have a stable post.

A late review, but a great product!

Reece, Amazon
18 March 2012
  • Summary: Having not bought this from Amazon I won't be able to tell you what the delivery/packaging is like, although, I've often found it to be excellent so I wouldn't worry about that. The actual CPU is brilliant, it's easily the best CPU I've ever used and from personal experience I think this is much better than the (at this time) new Intel i5-3570K - I know there's been some debate about it. You have to keep in mind the i5-3970K is cheaper than this processor, though.

User Review

  • Summary: What can I say? It does exactly what it says on the box. Got it with my Maximus IV M/B and it safely O/C's at 4.5GHZ without going into the advanced O/C. Very happy with the purchase.

Amazing chip but limited to 16GB of RAM

Tim, memoryexpress.com
26 August 2011
  • Summary: I would immediately update to this chip but I'm also looking into upgrading my software to the point where I need all the RAM I can get my hands on. I think I'll be better off waiting for the next generation because I'll be able to fill up 16GB too easily.
  • Pros: Wickedly fast and amazing value!
  • Cons: If you need a huge amount of RAM for your applications, the 16GB limitation will bottleneck you sooner than the i7 960 or 980's 24GB.

Only get if you need it

zombie, memoryexpress.com
26 January 2011
  • Summary: Intel and Amd both have great chips just nothing that really requires this much power. If your running single core system? GO FOR IT Dual Core...... if ya need more speed this will do the trick!
  • Pros: it's a fast chip for a decent price I would still go with amd 6 core of this thing but just my opinion.
  • Cons: software. , , ummmmm There is reallly nothing out there that needs or requires this cpu except for rendering software. If your running a quad core of any kind and you get this chip it's a waste of money for few apps require this unless your rendering video 24/7 there is no point. Keep saving your money for for a system that will actually need to be used by software. Hell even a dual core pentium overclocked and a 4870 will do most of what you need. get it if you lik...

CPU Top, Boxed Lüfter Flop!

Relthor "Rel", Amazon
10 September 2013
  • Summary: Mit der Leistung der CPU bin ich wirklich mehr als zufireden, keine beanstandung. Der Boxed Lüfter allerdings sollte schnellstmöglich ausgetauscht werden! Grade bei der Intel Turbo einstellung schafft der mitgelieferte Lüfter keineswegs die CPU unter 70 grad zu halten und wird dabei unerträglich laut. Somit bin ich im Moment dazu gezwungen die Turbo Einstellung ausgestellt zu lassen.

Oyun mu yoksa uygulama mı?

hasan akhan, vatanbilgisayar.com
13 July 2012
  • Summary: Intel taşdır intel uzun ömürdür intel ofis canavarıdır. Amd candır amd hızdır amd oyundur amd oyun canavarıdır. Benzer sistem ile i7 2600k amd'nin Fx 8150 işlemcisine çoğu oyun ve uygulama testlerinde açık bir fark atmıştır. Ancak benzer sistem dediğimizde intelin sistemi amd'nin siteminden 500-600 lira fazla geliyor(hatta daha fazla). Yani demek istediğim tamam intel iyi daha *dayanıklı daha performanslı ama amd'den pahalı.
  • Pros: Dayanıklı
  • Cons: Fiyatı tabiki de. Aslında Amd Fx 'in 8xxx leri den fazla yüksek değil.
