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.
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.
Think your P55 motherboard is obsolete? NOT with this i7-875K CPU!

Summary: I upgraded the i7-860 CPU in my Dell PC with this i7-875K - it DO haul the freight without overclocking! Because the i7-875K runs hotter than the 860, I upgraded the stock CPU cooler with a Noctua NH-C12P. Unfortunately, while trying different cooler positions for best cooling, I accidently trashed the socket on the Dell mobo. Bought an ASUS P7P55D-E Pro mobo (they've become hard to find), and set it up in a larger case with a Noctua NHD-14 CPU cooler (a HUGE cooler).
Summary: I bought this processor back in august and it has been working great. It's easy to overclock and works great with any 1156 motherboard. Installation was easy and I have had no problems since then. One thing I didn't like about this processor was the price. I understand it's unlocked, but even at the time, there were comparable processors for cheaper. Other than that, it's a great processor. The extra 4 simulated cores work wonders along with the 4 physical ones.
Summary: I had read previous reviews on this processor, and it does all that was stated. Yhis one is cooled by an Actic Feeeezer Rev 2, and yes, you do need an excellent aftermarket heatsink/fan. Do not scrimp im this area - its not worth your processor. This one currently runs at 3.45 GHz with a windows experience score of 7.6. The processor has lots of head room and oher eatures that make for a great build.
