Best Option for the Intel DP55KG MoBo

JOHN, UAE, Amazon
29 November 2011
  • 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.

OLDIE

TERRY P., Newegg
25 November 2011
  • Summary: i have a 2500 no k bought as a combo it was cheaper for the two and the 2500 z68 m.b. blows this chip away there both at 3.8.These chips are like life every thing changes in two years only this is for good.2500 is my last chip im done new ivy is next year even faster.
  • Pros: At it's time this was the fastest cpu in o.c. for the 1156. I bought this before the sandy came out,at the time they had good oem 1156 m.b. then so i saved on this.
  • Cons: alot of money unless you have a good 1156 m.b. laying around.Some of the 1156 won't read the chip you may have to update the bios.At the time this was a newer chip.Many older m.b. wont update.. i know.

Still Impressive

John S., Newegg
14 August 2011
  • Summary: When its normal for your brand new PC to be near obsolete in 6 months, this CPU still holds its own. Versatile, efficient and somehow gobbles up everything I throw at it. If you have never Overclocked before.
  • Pros: Unlocked. This CPU has run flawlessly since day 1. It sails along even when I'm trying to heat it up and make it burp. 9 months later and this CPU is still high-end. Intel rocks.
  • Cons: Yeah, right.

very fast, runs cool, OC easy

8 January 2011
  • Summary: Cooling with Corsair H50 self-contained liquid cooler. Highly recommend that device. CPU idles at 23'C, have not seen above 29'c yet under full-load. See my Corsair H50 review for video of that temp and the device.
  • Pros: Upgraded from Q6600 quad-core (OC'd at 3.2ghz) to the 875k, which is currently OC'd at 3.73ghz, runs very cool (cold actually with Corsair h50 water cooling) and will easily OC over 4ghz. Instead of using benchmarks to measure performance improvement, I rely on some video editing, since that's pr...

  • Pros: Overclocks to 3.8 GHZ easily!!!! It runs cool, and Couldn't have chosen a better CPU! Buy this one!!!
  • Cons: None as of now, just wish that I fitted it with a nicer mobo... A little less expensive would've been nice, but its not a con

  • Summary: im using an evga mobo and after i updated the bios, i am able to dynamically turbo boost my 875k. Without turbo boost, i had it overclocked at 4ghz all the time and normally with turbo boast, only one core is able to get to 3.7 and if you have all 4, it goes to 3.2 and when its idle, it declocks to...
