Summary: Outdated and overpriced. I got this only because I hoped the memory controller would take and read all 24GB of ram, turns out it didn't help and something is "likely" wrong with the X58 FTW3 I ran it on. Ended up getting a i7-4960X and a whole new system instead.
Summary: Thanks to this seller, my long disheartening search is over. I searched for months for a specific replacement for my now obsolete mother board and was nearly out of options until I found Mustang 717! Yahoooooo! Thanks! It was and is working perfectly! I wouldn't hesitate doing future business with this seller. Absolutely excellent!
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. This rig will last me the next 3 years, largely in part to the 990X CPU. Even if my i7 920 was OC'ed to 3.5 Ghz, it no match for the 990x...even at stock.
Summary: I bought the 990x OEM (no stock cooler or instructions) through Serversupply.com (found on Google Shopping) for only $695. That is a hefty 30% discount. If you have an aftermarket cooler, arctic silver, and the know-how nothing beats this upgrade. You simply cannot complain about getting an i7 Extreme for that price. The other sweet thing is that the clock multiplier is unlocked so simply increasing the multiplier to 30x (no fussing with voltages, ect..
Summary: Why i bought it: Pretty simple really. Ive always wanted one. One of the best cpus on earth. Its also becoming increasingly hard to find them new in sealed box. This cpu will also serve me for a very long time. What i like most about it: Its performance. Its incredibly fast and powerfull. There is nothing it cant handle. What i dislike about it: Its price. They dont come cheap. But if its something you love then its priceless.
