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.
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.
Summary: Well what can one say about a 6 Core I7 overclocked??? Its Freakin Awesome! Thats what you say. I use it on my Hackintosh and got Geekbench scores of over 17,000!! Thats more than 4 times what I was getting with my Quad core Q6600 Fantastic
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.
