I'm in love with my system again

Summary: CPU arrived in a well packed package. So far, still running strong at 4.2 GHZ (24/7). Upgraded from an i7 920. Get this CPU if you don't wanna give up on your 1366 socket yet. Pair this CPU with a AIO water cooler and overclock it. I'm in love with my system again...
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.
Also received no CPU in box. Amazon, Check on your warehouse people.

Summary: I have also received my order today from Amazon. And low and behold, the bottom seal was cut on the Intel i7 980x box with no processor included. I have the booklet and heatsink and thermal paste bag.
Summary: Well, I too fell victim to receiving the box with only the cooler, sticker, and thermal paste inside. My first order was placed on December 30, along with a motherboard, shipped out of Arizona and arrived on January 3.
Summary: First of all I wanted to thank you to Amazon. Amazon shipped this item for same day delivery. But the career A1 courier didn't delivered this same day. I called Amazon 2nd day and they sent another package in UPS and I returned the first one 3 days after I received. This processor is rocking!.
Summary: Very pleased with this product. I am using the processor for rendering 3D animation and I am very pleased to see a significant decrease in render times over my previous processor, a quad core q9550.
Summary: I buy stuff from AMAZON BOOKS AND OTHER THINGS. Never a problem...if you have a problem and get your money back, why whinge. I am a happy customer. My only complaint, to much stuff to buy, to easy to buy, it's like fast food. Only from America do you get TOP CLASS SERVICE and really good stuff.
Summary: I purchased the processor on 28th, got it today when I opened up the box, the seal has been broken and CPU was missing, contacted Amazon, they promised full refund as soon as they get back the package. Amazon was great refunding the money for both return and shipping. :)
Summary: My 980X CPU came in a new sealed box. I'm running this CPU in an ASUS Rampage III Extreme Mobo @ 4.2Ghz. I have gotten it to 4.5Ghz no sweat but I backed off to make sure I don't damage this pricey beast. I have "speedstep" enabled so it only overclocks when the load is adequate.
