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
Summary: ...ok reason why i say this is because...first ive never owned a i7 till now....dell told me what core to buy so it can fit my mobo...and of course they sent me the wrong info...so i emailed amazon explaining that it wasint there fault for the miss info i was givin..
Summary: I bought this processor for an old machine I have sitting at home. After months of sitting on it, I finally installed it and booted up the machine, no problems. It's fast, really fast and runs extremely cool. It's my first previously used processor purchase and I'm extremely happy with the outcome.
