Good Buy for Extra Speed
26 December 2014
Summary: Really adds some speed to an older iMac. Put this in a mid-2010 27" iMac with a SSD, and it absolutely flies. Bought the CPU used, but was in great shape and have not had an issue yet. It has been installed for about 3 weeks now.
Summary: So far so good, it works great and a good upgrade for my computer. It kept my temps much cooler as had more power to run programs. Overclocked much easier and stable than my i5 processor. The new ones are way over priced for being old technology in my opinion.
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.
