CPU great, documentation poor

Len Mcwilliams, Amazon
24 September 2010
  • Summary: The CPU is an excellent performer. My only problem is with the poor documentation: 16 drawings with no text. Fortunately the Intel website has a good installation video: [...] Before applying the thermal paste, make sure you know which way you want the fan to point, and make sure you have a Phillips head screwdriver that is long and narrow enough to reach the 2 attachment screws that are accessible only through holes in the heat sink ("flux capacitor").

Intel core I7 980x CPU

Minh Truong, Amazon
25 May 2010
  • Summary: The seller Mustang717 has shipped product on time as promised and the condition of the retail box was good, no damage. I would recommend others to buy items from this seller. I have not installed the CPU into my Gigabyte X58OC motherboard yet but I will do this soon. I will have another review on this CPU performance after installation. I hope it will exceed my expectation. Update on Sept.

A Great Processor

Mr. J. Croasdell, Amazon
16 July 2011
  • Summary: I have one of these processors in my desktop. In the year that I've owned the processor I cant say I've ever maxed it out where I can't get the computer to do any more (where the OS becomes unstable). The performance is impressive but not ground breaking. I say that compared to the 2.53Ghz core 2 duo in my Sony Vaio laptop (bought in Sept 2008). I was expecting a lot more performance for the money.

Mycket bra

  • Summary: Man får vad man betalar för. 2 extra cores + olåst processor. Detta gör att man otroligt enkelt kan överklocka. Dock är denna överklockning betydligt mer elegant än vanlig överklockning. Man ändrar helt enkelt turbo mode när man överklockar denna processor. Detta betyder att processorn inte ständigt är överklockad, utan höjer bara frekvensen när det behövs. Sparar el och otroligt enkelt. Man kan förvänta sig runt 4.13ghz med luft och utan att höja volttalet processorn.

Geht ganz gut

Alriin, geizhals.de
7 April 2010
  • Summary: Der 980X (B1 Stepping) geht ganz gut. Die Leistung in Mehrkernoptimierten Anwendungen kann sich dank 6 Kernen und 12 Threads sehen lassen. Auch das Übertaktungspotential ist ok. Ich erreichte 5GHz unter einer Single Stage Kompressor Kühlung. Ergo sollten 4GHz mit (guter) Luftkühlung drin sein. Der Coldbug lag bei -160, Coldbootbug bei -155 Grad. Auch wenn ich kein Intel-Fan bin: der geht ganz schön ab!
