Summary: This is an update from I7 920 definitely huge upgrade in performance and even in temperature. I7 990x runs cooler than 920. Setback is the overprice. It transfers your system's computing power from 2010 to 2014.

Summary: This was part of a final upgrade. Got a Core i7 920, ASUS PT6 Deluxe, 12 GB RAM, GTX285, X-Fi in 2008. It has now been upgraded to: Core i7 990X EE, ASUS PT6 Deluxe, 12 GB RAM, ASUS GeForce GTX Titan, Creative X-FI Platinium,2 x SSD, 1 x HD.
