Old but Reliable

Heather K., Newegg
16 November 2015
  • Summary: It's approaching time to upgrade if I want to keep gaming on a PC (not to mention it's time to move to Windows 10), and I honestly don't know if there's a current chip out there that compares to the staying power of this one--they may be faster, but staying reliable for five whole years was quite a...
  • Pros: Back in November of 2010 I bought this processor for a new gaming rig after a store-bought rig basically cooked itself. The processor (and the motherboard it's in) is still going strong. I'm a gamer and I am absolutely positive I've run this thing pretty hard. Even now it has no issue with some o...
  • Cons: Not much bad to say about it. It has slightly too few GHz of power to run Witcher 3 without overclocking? And they don't make this chip anymore. I guess that's about it... and not really a negative at all when you consider it's a five-year-old chip! It runs a bit hot, but then, it is an i7. Defin...

Along with a top of the line GPU will still play new games Maxed out.

  • Summary: Put this in my daughters computer along with a 7970 GPU now and her and her boyfriend are playing all their games on Max settings. This CPU is powerful enough to still be current. Along with a top line GPU will still play any game out on Max settings @ 1920x1080

Great Proc

marc s., Newegg
24 July 2015
  • Summary: Got this in January 2011. Would still be using it but my MB (ASUS P6X58D-E) was getting behind the times and I needed more Sata 6 and USB3 ports. Was the longest lasting computer I ever built. Still in service with my son now.
  • Pros: Just about everything. Fast Stable Dependable
  • Cons: None

4 years and counting!

Michael H., Newegg
21 May 2015
  • Summary: I got this for a build around June of 2011. I put a Corsair H50 on it to keep this guy cool. I then paired it up with a GTX 480 and 12 GB of DDR3 and have never looked back. This thing even at stock speeds still holds up respectably compared to some of my friends' newer AMD or Intel based builds.
  • Pros: A) Very very powerful B) Well equipped for any task(gaming, editing, rendering) C) Reliable, stable and dependable D) Fast, and can get faster with overclocking
  • Cons: A) Stock cooler is not so great B) Power hungry. This thing is a 130 watt cpu! C) Forgotten and forlorn. No more motherboards made for it, and coolers are sometimes a chore to find for such an old socket.

Was and still is a great CPU.

Joe, Amazon

  • Summary: Well, here I am 5 years later writing a review for this thing. Yes, 5 years after buying this I am still using this powerhouse of a CPU. With a bit of Overclock and a pair of Zotac GTX 760s, it broke 9700 on 3DMark's Fire Test. Not bad for an aging PC

Still Blazing!

anthony p., Newegg
4 February 2015
  • Summary: I've had this beast for over 3 years, nearly pushed to its limits everyday with gaming and video processing. Still working like new. This processor will last long.
  • Pros: Performs under pressure, at high temps and will chew up and spit out anything you throw at it. Well suited for overclocking, very forgiving.
  • Cons: Can get quite hot. Best used with a hydro/radiator cooler system.

Brian D., Newegg
1 October 2014
  • Summary: I've had this for over 4 years, it has been working very well for osx builds up through the most recent 10.9.4
  • Pros: Good speed, low heat, good energy rating.
  • Cons: Had to apply thermal paste over the processor but that happens with any
