Good processor, surprisingly difficult installation

  • Summary: I purchased this as an upgrade from an i7 920 processor. The 970 is quick and has immense capacity (given its six-cores), but installation was more difficult than expected. Even with the X58 level motherboard, this was no simple move from one compatible CPU to another.

Un prezzo ragionevole per un processore a 6 core

  • Summary: La prima cosa che si nota di questo processore è che pur essendo il fratello minore del 980X non è contrassegnato dalla X di Extreme. Cosa cambia in sostanza, nulla se non il fatto che questo processore non permette le piccole modifiche di overclock che si vorrebbero fare per farlo viaggiare come il...
  • Pros: 6 core, molto veloce
  • Cons: leggermente meno costoso del i7 - 980x, pessimo overclock
