Still powering through...

Jason B., Newegg
9 January 2016
  • Summary: With Skylake out upgrading is always in my mind. I would love to have SATA3, USB3, M.2, and other things to be more up to date. I know even with how well this 920 Bloomfield running, a new Skylake CPU would be faster, hard to justify the $700ish to update for what I'm currently have now.
  • Pros: Its been exactly 7 years since this was delivered to my door and it has never backed down from whatever I do to it. I received the "C0" version of this processor and had a rough time correctly overclocking it verses the"D0" version. After a lot of time tinkering with this quad 2.6Ghz I run it sta...
  • Cons: Its getting old and used replacement parts to support this CPU's needs are not going to get any cheaper, if they fail.

Still Running

  • Summary: Had some heating issues but reapplied paste over a year ago and no problems since. Am about to finally replace this part of my PC and the Mobo because 1366 and thought it deserved a goodbye.
  • Pros: Still running 6 years later.
  • Cons: None

Great CPU

Neil B., Newegg
21 December 2015
  • Summary: Really solid product.
  • Pros: Great product. It still works like a beast 6+ years later. I just added a liquid cooled cpu cooler. I should be able to OC this baby to 3.5ghz, but we shall see.
  • Cons: LGA 1366 makes it nearly impossible to find a new mobo. That's the only negative.

Old Faithful

Mary A., Newegg
13 December 2015
  • Pros: Bought this thing in August of 2009 and it still runs like a champ. Doesn't even break a sweat no matter what I throw at it, and I've never overclocked it. I suspect it will last me quite a while longer.
  • Cons: They sure got rid of this socket quick, so one day when I do finally upgrade I'll have to get a new mobo as well. But by then there will be plenty of other reasons I need a new mobo anyway.

The old workhorse.

John M., Newegg
27 May 2015
  • Summary: I'm going to OC this thing to a minimum of 3.5ghz for FFXIV: Heavensward, in a caseless setup, using a Zalman copper-finned heatsink so large I could never fit it in any case. How long can the 920 really last? I aim to find out.
  • Pros: I have never used a processor for so long, or with as much satisfaction. It has outlived everything in my life. When one application of Arctic Silver got crusty, it dutifully notified me by shutting down, only to return as fresh as the day I unboxed it, when I cleaned off the blackened soot and r...
  • Cons: Reminds us of the brick wall the industry hit in terms of processing power.

Still no plans to upgrade!

James N., Newegg
21 April 2015
  • Pros: I bought this bad boy in late 2009. It is still competitive with processors released today. Paired with triple-channel memory and a 10K Velociraptor, I've never had to upgrade anything other than the video card.
  • Cons: None

6 years later...

Chris G., Newegg
9 February 2015
  • Summary: A conservative overclock to 3500MHZ with a voltage set at 1.15v, runs nice and cool, and can run any game I have at 60fps easy.
  • Pros: This chip is still on par with the new ones, yes you can get another 20% CPU power with a new model, but this CPU combined with one or 2 of the new GTX 900 series graphics cards, will keep it in the game for quite some time!
  • Cons: no cons at all

5 February 2015
  • Summary: Just now replaced it with a Xeon W3690.
  • Pros: Everyone knows what a I7 920 with D0 stepping can do.
  • Cons: None.

2008 and counting

Scott H., Newegg
20 January 2015
  • Pros: I got this when I was just out of high school. It has dominated nonstop since then. Incredibly impressive and resilient processor. Building a new comp this week, and wanted to give this beauty a proper sendoff!
  • Cons: In the near decade I've spent with this processor, I can't name a single issue.
