Love the Cpu, Never had so many issues with a heat sync before.
8 June 2012
Summary: First off i actually did not want to knock the stars off on this one, but felt obligated because as a consumer im rating my experience with the item. First ill start by saying that im an average joe when it comes to my computer tasks besides heavy programs such as photoshop, lightroom, etc. Im a completley stock setup and do not unlock cpus to their full potential. I purchased this from an upgrade from my I7 920.
Summary: Everyone says this is the best thing since toast and i don't know why this CPU seems to be not much faster than my old quad core q8300. Rendering times, it still takes like an hour to render a 30 mins 4Mbps WMV video with z77 mobo and 8GB 1600Mhz ram.
Summary: Dont consider this if your only motive is to play games. even the lowest i3 ivy brige processors can do that without bottlenecking ANY amount of graphics prowess. Truth: most modern 4 core CPUs are more than enough to handle the cpu tasks of games, as they become more and more GPU dependent.
Summary: Déposé au fond d'un grand carton avec d'autres composants informatiques beaucoup plus lourds et/ou massifs, protection illusoire par remplissage partiel de papier froissé. Problème récurrent au service expédition de Amazon.fr, d’où une étoile en moins. Remarques répétitives à ce sujet, toujours ignorée du service clientèle. Seconde étoile en moins et perte du client.
