Works as designed

  • Summary: Replaced an Intel Quad Core i5, 2.66GHz in an iMac 11,1 late 2009, 27". I've installed the cpu along with an 32GB RAM upgrade and an 1TB SSD. Significantly boosted the speed of my iMac so is like a new computer.

Good CPU for mid level gaming

  • Summary: my gaming PC is pretty outdated. I'm running this CPU with a gtx570, and 8gb of G skill ddr3 ram, regular HDD. I can play BO3 on medium settings at a pretty solid 60fps. Not the best CPU but I'm not going for ultra high detail 4K graphics. Works just fine.

This gets a Swell Award

  • Summary: When I built my computer 4 years ago, this thing was like $600.00 expensive so I went with an i5, Now it's reasonable, but also discontinued. Thanks to Amazon, I was able to find a company with a few on their shelves. It's like a coronary bypass for an aging computer. I feel young again.

regretting it so far.

  • Summary: it overheats after some time of use. Even brand new I have not been able to figure out why this is overheating with the default factory values for my BIOS. It really sucks. My next processor will be a AMD.

This was a great processor 4 years ago.

  • Summary: I have had this processor for a couple years now, and it's just fine, but it's time for me to upgrade. This was the slowest component in my system. When I was comparing how a new processor was going to compare to this one on cpuboss I stumbled upon it for sale on Amazon for like $378.

I7-870

russ8814, Amazon

  • Summary: Nice and fast. Was going to purchase the Xeon X3470 or i7-875k but decided to go with this CPU. Saved myself sixty bucks considering I'm going to upgrade mobo and CPU again soon. Gonna see how Bulldozer performs and if it's good I'm gonna buy the Asus Sabertooth 990FX gamer series along with the BD.

Great CPU

William R. Tate "Tateman", Amazon
4 January 2011
  • Summary: Bought this at the end of the year. Originally, the ship date was going to be like a week or two out. The next day after I ordered, Amazon let me know I would be getting it in the next couple of days. It was perfect, because that is when I was getting all the rest of my computer parts.
