Awesome Fast and Cool Running
Jeff R., Newegg
21 February 2013
Summary: I didn't get it from Newegg but wanted to review it here.
Pros: This CPU runs very cool with a good heat sink/fan and a decent PC case. I have mine in an Antec P280 which is a nice sized PC case and I'm using a Zalman CNPS9700 heatsink fan. It's working great and is fast and currently idles in the low 20's celsius. I have speed step enabled so that helps too ...
Pros: Awesome workload response and performance and a lower power footprint! Coupled with an SSD boot drive this thing is incredibly fast as a desktop unit. For the non or ocassional gamer it's ideal. Turboboost works great for the occassional heavy spreadsheet calculations, rendering, scientific or en...
Cons: Runs hot with Intel stock cooler. Suggest using a Coolmaster Hyper212 plus or better instead.
Summary: I used this in a system specifically to develop and test software for measured boot using TXT and the TPM. Both work well if you buy the right motherboard. I'm using a DQ67EP with great results.
Pros: Fast and powerful but still low power. 4 cores are plenty to run a very serious desktop system. Full vPro means you can run a virtualized system (like Xen) with full hardware acceleration.
Cons: A bit expensive. Others have noted it runs a bit hot but I've got it on a mini-ITX board in a tiny case and I've got no problems with heat.
Summary: I am not disappointed with my new computer. The 2600S offers 400MHz more clock speed, 2 MB more cache and hyperthreading over the cheaper 2405S processor. If you have the cash, and demand high performance-to-power consumption out of your PC, then 2600S is a good investment and will not disappoint.
Pros: This is a very responsive low power Quad Core Sandy Bridge processor I use with an Intel DZ68BH motherboard, 16 GB of Mushkin Essentials DDR3-1333 memory, Intel 120GB 510 series SSD, and a Sapphire AMD 6850 graphics card in a desktop. I run Windows 7 Pro in 64bit. The new system is very responsiv...
Cons: Rather pricy but I am sensitive, ever since the Pentium-D days, of CPUs requiring more than 80 Watts of power. I think the boxed heatsink is marginal at 65W and should be replaced with a Core 2 Duo Heatsink. Runs a little hot running Handbrake.
Summary: I think the pros out weight the cons. And in all its a really nice processor. Fast energy officiant, and using Intels net technology.
Pros: Fast, low voltage, Sandy Bridge,1155 socket type
Cons: Still runs abit hot. Intel 2000 HD Graphics,not Intel 3000 HD ( this might be a problem with my motherboard ) But CPU lock scrapped side of CPU not sure if its because of the heat spreader/shield or what motherboard CPU lock.
Summary: The CPU came ahead of time and is working perfectly in my computer. I would order from them again. I already did this review back when I got this CPU. Amazon got a glitch problem it needs to fix.
Pros: rock solid has been running for 2+ years on a gigabyte ga-8penxp clocked @ 3.0 with a solid copper thermaltake heatsink\fan. i have been in the mood to start upgrading since this is almost 3 years old but it still handles everything i need it to do 1 gb ram 256mb radeon 7000 200gb seagate sata dr...
Summary: i've owned this cpu for a year and a half now and keep looking for a logical reason to upgrade but can't find one. this has been o/c'd right out of the box , running at 3.4 ghz. (stock voltage) using my old Aqarius II liquid cooling system.
Summary: Great Processor!! I've hade this for a year now & it still hangs up there with the best. Its never failed on me yet. Also, after running alot of benchmarks(Doom 3, 3dMarks, PCmarks) its right behind all the big dogs like AMD FX-53 939 & P4 3.6EE.
