High-Water Mark

Jon M., Newegg
10 November 2015
  • Summary: I bought this chip when it came out because I just so happened to be building at that time. Here I am now, YEARS later, and this chip has been through 2 mobo changes (they didnt break, just wanted change), and is still giving amazing performance.
  • Pros: Still going Awesome Performance
  • Cons: None

Still ticking!

David G., Newegg
6 December 2014
  • Summary: I've had this about 2.5 years and I still consider it blazing fast. Any faster wouldn't help me. I've done "max load" applications like transcoding and I'm sure I could get better performance on a top-flight CPU, but I'm SUPER satisfied with how fast this unit gets the job done.
  • Pros: Very fast Better INTERNAL thermal transfer than Ivy Bridge Longevity
  • Cons: Not free

It doesn't get better than this

John Massaro, Amazon
1 August 2014
  • Summary: It doesn't get better than this. I was looking for a processor that could handle an extreme amount of processing while ripping my blu ray collection. This thing does the trick.

Amazing CPU

Nick N., Newegg
23 July 2014
  • Summary: I ordered this in 2011, been running it on my gaming rig ever since. It's chewed up every game I've thrown at it and I've never had any problems with it. These things are powerful and bulletproof.
  • Pros: Fast Hyperthreading Stays cool
  • Cons: None

Legendary.

Matt H., Newegg
13 April 2014
  • Summary: A true "They don't make them like this anymore"
  • Pros: This chip is just that, legendary. Its the next q6600 and this is why. It was manufactured with a fluxless solder, which is where they solder the die to the lid. Ivy bridge and later chips use cheap thermal paste instead of this superior manufacturing process. Delidding and replacing the paste wi...
  • Cons: None, other than one day when i'm old and grey, i'll have to replace it.

Great CPU

Ed T., Newegg
4 February 2014
  • Pros: The fastest Sandy Bridge CPU and can be overclocked, I've since replaced my primary desktop with an i7-4700k and a second PC with an i7-4771. Both of these newer Haswell CPUs are only slightly faster than this Sandy Bridge i7-2700k
  • Cons: None.

Intel Core I7-2700k Quad-Core Processor

Jay Hagy, Amazon
20 January 2014
  • Summary: after using all 4 generations of Intel CPU's to build computers I have to say that the second generation is the best built of the lot... These CPU's heat sinks are soldered instead of glued and cheap thermal paste used!

Great CPU but terribly over priced.

jason j., Newegg
11 December 2013
  • Summary: Great CPU but not worth $350 bones.
  • Pros: This CPU easily overclocks to 5+ghz on air IF you know what you are doing. Paired with a high end motherboard and graphics card, there is nothing it can't handle.
  • Cons: This isn't a con of the CPU but, I paid $229 for my 2700K. The price Newegg is selling it for is ridiculously high.

Great CPU

Robert S., Newegg
2 December 2013
  • Summary: I wish I could have bought one much sooner but prices were prohibitive for my budget.
  • Pros: I have been running this CPU for about 5 months and am still amazed at its speed. I was fortunate to find one on a major auction site for $250.00, brand new still in the sealed box. I have it oc'ed to 4.4 gig which seems to be the limit of my motherboard (a two year old budget Asus board) It neve...
