Expensive. Fast. Good for oc.
20 February 2012
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.
Summary: Don't get me wrong I can reach 4.8Ghz, but I fly fsx and there is nothing worse than spending 3 hrs in flight just to have the PC crash 5 miles from the arrival airport.
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.
Summary: I bought this CPU for about 300 euro. I bought it for my custom build PC which had a budget of 1350 euro, and processor is one of the most important parts of the pc, and because of the good reviews I saw on the internet I bought this one. On the internet people told that this CPU was easy to be overclocked, which is offcourse nice but not needed. 3,4 Ghz I7 doesn't need to be overclocked at all. But if you want to overclock, this is the processor you want.
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.
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.
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.
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.
, 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...
