Great Product

  • Pros: It has lasted me 4+ years and still going strong like the first day. I have had it overclocked to 3.6 since day 1.
  • Cons: Can't overclock it any higher, it just crashes. Not due to temps.

Great processor

  • Pros: Works perfectly as a gaming or standard use processor. Idles at about 1% usage. Running standard online games at moderate graphics to moderate high graphics have never seen above 10-16% cpu ussage
  • Cons: Runs very...very hot with the Intel Heat-sink..Buy an after market heat-sink for it

Is a great product - not a good deal

Edgar G., Newegg
16 January 2012
  • Summary: Only giving it 4 stars because of the price for a 3yr old chip... were is the value... what other electronic parts are the same or more 3yrs after they come out?
  • Pros: Been running it at 4Ghz for almost 3yrs now (bought in April of 09). Very stable/consistent/predictable for overclocking. 3yrs later and for my needs it's still very, very, fast.
  • Cons: Got it for 25 less than it's priced now April of 09 - huh? And the new processors are the same price? Oh well...

Awesome! but avoid the fan like the plague.

Jacob B., Newegg

  • Summary: Does not include thermal paste! Be sure to add some to your order or you will have to do like I did and interrupt your computer building fun to search around town for a store that sells it. (note--the Zalman fan does come with thermal paste)
  • Pros: I've had this for almost a year now. It rocks and I don't regret upgrading from my old dual core system. This processor is amazing and I can't say anything that hasn't been said one thousand times in the reviews so I'll stop here with the "pros".
  • Cons: The only reason I'm writing this review is to repeat and emphasize what others have said.....AVOID THE INCLUDED FAN LIKE THE PLAGUE!. Seriously..Intel should have just sold this CPU without the fan. Instead of nuts and bolts the fan connects to your motherboard with cheap plastic push-pins. These...

Superb performance

Ian M., Newegg
12 June 2010
  • Pros: What a proc! Didn't overclock too much with this yet as it runs great at stock settings. Great PCMark and 3DMark scores along with excellent framerates combined with GTX 285 with this bad boy. The stock cooler does a decent job of cooling. i get idle temps in the low- to mid-40s.
  • Cons: Initially I didn't lock down the CPU cooler to the mobo properly and think design could be improved.

Cheaper alternative available

Lenny, Amazon

  • Summary: The i7 920 is a fantastic processor. The reason for the 4 star rating is because the core i5 and i7 8xx series is now available. Before September '09, this would have been a 5 star review. There are a few things that an i7 920 will do better than an i7 860. It overclocks better at stock voltage.

Best choice for value and performance as of this review date -

1DefAlpha, Amazon
9 September 2009
  • Summary: I was contemplating about writing the review for this chip since there are so many people write about it already. But if you're still deciding what chip to get or if you're not sure if you're got the right chip then I'll give you my thought on this.

Its Overkill And Hotter Than Hell With Stock Cooler

R. T. Meisenholder, Amazon

  • Summary: Before you choose to go the I7 route there are few things you really should consider. The first is just how much speed you might actually need for the games and applications you are trying to run.

This CPU *Underclocks* RAM to 1066MHz

MindTx, Amazon
2 January 2009
  • Summary: I only wish to add an important consideration I overlooked when I used this excellent CPU on my first build. It will underclock any RAM running faster than 1066. What this meant for me is that my nice 6GB of Tri-Channel 1600MHz RAM, would only run at 1066MHz.
