This is in my current video unit - works great
27 December 2013
Summary: I run my video server/recorder on this and it is a wonderful gadget. I run it at standard specs and it runs cool and quiet with my attached Coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus. I have never had a bad Intel cpu and this one is just one more in a long line if ever better cpu's. This is also the unlocked unit and is very overclock able. for those who want to enjoy more speed.
Summary: Got this for my build three years ago and it has been a work horse of a CPU. hard to believe that it still run's so strong after all this time. By todays standard she is outdated, but I cant complain a bit about the performance. It has been running at 4.0 GHZ with a Noctua cooler on my EVGA p-55 classified motherboard and three 570 GPU's. It was built for gaming and work running windows Office.
Summary: This was the beefiest processor for my socket type and motherboard. Moving from an i5 to an i7 isn't a huge boost, but it was significant enough that I noticed a speed improvement in application load time.
Overclocked I-7 875K Still a Winner Updated 10/27/2012

Summary: I got this cpu in August last year and set it up in this manner I 7 875K ES WATERCOOLED with Antec H2O 620, dual fan, push pull setup Asus P5P55D E-LX 16GB CORSAIR XMS3 1600 ASUS GTX550TI 1GB and started playing with it, I was able to get it to 4.7 running stable, but the temps were @70c+ under stress, so I backed it down to 4.0 where it is currently running with temps maxed at around 50c under stress.
Summary: Super fast performer. Switched to this processor from an Intel I5-750 (2.66GHz). The changes in performance are awesome. I generally don't overclock but the performance is top notch after the switch. Sadly amazon would not ship this item to the U.A.E. I had to purchase it off another site to get it.
Cheaper upgrade from i3 or i5 then going to fuzzy bridge or six core.

Summary: Same WEI score and clock speed as the i5 760 it replaced. I was able to OC the i5 to 4ghz but have not tried to OC the i7 yet. Although, it runs cooler with lower CPU usage running the same software and games. Worth upgrading from i3 or i5 but not i7. Easier and cheaper then then the 6 core I wanted. I can not compare it to AMD since I don't have one.
