Blinding Speed

Chris M, Amazon

  • Summary: This was the heart of the liquid cooled system that I helped my son build. Fastest processor known to man at the time we built this monster of a PC. Everything else is standing still next to this!! GREAT Product.

Computer Gaming CPU

Cowboybob "CB", Amazon

  • Summary: This first generation i7 is unbelievable! It is faster than my previous i7 920 and 960, which were both excellent processors. The 6 cores with 12 threads runs at about 1% when typing or other chores. when gaming it only used between 8 and 14% of the CPU with periodic burst to 32%. WOW. I have a friend with a 2nd generation and this 980 is very competitive. I recommend it to anyone out there.

Can't find a way to use it all!

Seth Andrew Martin, Amazon
14 April 2012
  • Summary: Try as I might, SETI@Home is the only thing I can get to fully utilize all 12 cores, which is awesome. Tragically, it won't work as a space heater either because it doesn't get hot enough.

Cheaper than an X

Michael Adams, Amazon
11 March 2012
  • Summary: Couldn't afford the Extreme so I went with this. I overclocked it to 4.2 Ghz on H20 without moving the core voltage at all. Probably could go higher but the temps are <35 degrees on full load and I like rock-solid stable and cool. x58 has very little to offer over the newer chips but I had expensive hardware built around the platform already. Wasn't ready for a full reset quite yet. This chip has given my rig a couple more years of life.

  • Summary: Awesome chip, absolutely zero complains, nice low temps. Was going to get the extreme edition of this processor, but this does pretty much the same performance. Save the money and get this.

Excellent Processor

BillyWallace "3d Guy", Amazon
17 September 2011
  • Summary: *I don't encourage you to overclock and am not responsible for your results if you do overclock. This is the sixth i7-based system I have built. The first i7 920 built 2 and a half years ago acheived stunning performance. When Intel came out with these new 6-core 32 nm processors I was curious about their overclocking potential considering it is an older architecture that has been moved to a smaller manufacturing process. My curiosity was rewarded with this purchase.
