Summary: The seller is awesome even gave me a self signed thank you note. Thank you Digiconcepts. So far everything is rock solid. Your customer service even better. The processor, yes its older but it has 6 cores runs stock at 3.33MHZ. Its a little warmer and the core temperatures with evenly spread thermal paste seems to be all over the place but it gets the job done and is the last upgrade for an older 2010 Alienware Aurora. Thanks!
Seller answered all questions, arrived quickly, good price, works great.

Summary: Five star recommendation! Initially I had some concerns on purchasing a used cpu which I expressed with the seller, he assured me it was fine and if I had any problems I could send it back. Happy to report, no problems and it works like new.
Summary: Yeah, new is better...NOT. I'll stack up my LG1133 X58 i7-980X 6-core against and 3rd gen quad. Those of you that believe that newer and cheaper CPU's are better simply want to justify to their wives and parents why7 they need to buy a new machine. Don't let em do it Mom.
Summary: Yes, it's for an X58 motherboard. Yes Sandy bridge has been out for a while. Yes, you can overclock the crap out of it. General observation: If you have a case with a side window and hate blue LEDs, you'll need a different cooler: It has them, and you can't turn them off.
Summary: Seriously, I don't really know what to say about this chip. I'm running this chip + Asus P6X58D-E + GTX 580 + 24GB DDR3-1333 + Corsair H60. It's absolutely incredible. Overclocks like a dream with the unlocked multiplier (just ticked up the multiplier to get 4.14GHz and added a little more voltage). It's pricey, but if you've got the money and want one of the craziest, fastest, highly over-clockable CPUs on the planet, then you'll be incredibly pleased with the i7 980x.
