Best bang for the buck for heavy multi-processing

Hashimoto, Amazon
1 April 2011
  • Summary: I use this processor for design space exploration, running 12 processes in parallel. Gulftown was made for this type of job. I am fully utilizing all 12 threads 24 hours a day, and although I am using the stock Intel fan for cooling, it never overheats with this workload.

WOW

Dan Learned, Amazon
1 April 2011
  • Summary: I use this CPU primarily for gaming, (Far Cry 1 & 2, Half Life 2 & episode 2, & Crysis just to name a few), occasionally I do Photoshop CS5, and a little video editing (home/family videos). I couldn't be more pleased. I've overclocked it to 4.4 with temps around 150 - 175 deg.

i7-990X CPU

Robert Nilsen, Amazon
1 April 2011
  • Summary: I use the CPU for HD video editing. Very fast and could be faster, if you know how to over clock. I was able to install the CPU with out any problems. I did need to remove the MB, to mount the fan base, so the cooling fan can be installed. Works very well.

DON'T FORGET TO PUT YOUR SEAT BELT... BECAUSE YOU ARE GOING TO JET !!

The ZeeR, Amazon
1 April 2011
  • Summary: Pros: Extremely fast. Offers six processing cores, 12 threads. Unlocked multiplier eases overclocking. Cons: Expensive. Arriving a bit late in the generation. Bottom Line: At $999, the Intel Core i7-990X is unquestionably pricey.

I love it

J. Spencer, Amazon
1 April 2011
  • Summary: I'm upgrading from an i7 920 running at stock -- and this is a massive increase in performance. I know that the 1366 architecture isn't the latest and greatest, but I wanted a hexacore processor without also having to upgrade my motherboard and ram, so I chose this chip, and for me, it's a good...

dismayed, then happily surprised...

PDXborn, Amazon
1 April 2011
  • Summary: I received this Used-Like New CPU yesterday. When I opened the box, I was at first dismayed at what I saw. A crushed box that completely smashed on one corner all the way down the box. I thought, man what a rip off! Then I saw that box was still sealed and had never been opened.

Hefty Upgrade from i7 920

E. Laskaris, Amazon
1 April 2011
  • 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.
