Excerpt: When this chip first came out, it was sort of a holy grail of overclocking. 4 GHz was generally easily attainable (I put mine straight to 4 when i installed it and never looked back). For the price and performance, it was hard to beat the 920. Now with the newer Sandy Bridge processors, it has lost some of its value but is still a very good chip.
Great processor for people with 3+ graphics cards.

Excerpt: I received this processor in a trade a little while back and have been in love with it ever since. I upgraded to this from a Core 2 Quad Q8300 so the jump in power was significant to say the least. The only reason I went with the LGA1366 socket instead of Sandy-Bridge is because this was free for me. While it may not be as fast as a SB processor it can run anything I can throw at it and still have a bit of kick to it when needed.
Excerpt: Equipped with my TRU120 this chip runs COOL and FAST your just need to tweak your RAMS to get the best out of ths CHIP..paired it with a ASUS Rampge 2 Gene and 3x2gb Gskill PI's it was one hell of a LEGENDARY Platform for me ever since i tried using Intel..
Excerpt: I'm not going to write a lot about this and cover every aspect of this processor, but I must say that this is an amazing CPU. I have been running close to 4Ghz for 1.5 years with no problems, this processor can handle most modern tasks thrown at it, although with the speed with which technology advances, I must say that it's slowly starting to show its age, since the original models were released a bit more than three years ago.
