  • Summary: The temperatures for my particular chip are slightly higher than I am comfortable with. After a mild over clock to 4.4 Ghz, temperatures were hitting 85 Celsius in Prime95. Temperatures in games are 70+ degrees.
  • Pros: Powerful CPU that is more than adequate for gaming.
  • Cons: High temperature.

  • Summary: Went from a Q6600 to this beast and it was night and day difference. The amount of processing power is just absolutely phenomenal. The 8 threads of execution just absolutely chew through everything you throw at them.
  • Pros: - OC'd to 4.5 GHz on a UD5H with a H100 cooler easily, - Very fast
  • Cons: - Very expensive, - Doesn't support some virtualization features that other processors do

Works like it should

  • Summary: Running this cpu with the stock fan and paste, runs cools under minimal load. I ran a torture test (prime95) on it to burn it in, and the cores ranged from 77-80 degrees Celsius while under 100% load for a little over 2 hours. I'm definitely buying an aftermarket cooler so I can overclock it to above 4GHz when needed, but it does everything I need it to just fine with the stock settings and fan/paste.

Solid at 3.5GHz. Able to overclock to 4.5GHz+ with some tenderness.

  • Summary: Great chip. If you're overclocking, you might look into 'de-lidding' it. There is an Integrated Heat Sink built onto it that has too much thermal paste and causes temps to rise more than the Sandy Bridge models. Fortunately, the IHS isn't soldered on like on the Sandy Bridges and a delicate hand can fix the problem. Research it first to see if you're up to the task. With a nice aftermarket cooler, you can easily get this thing up to 4.5GHz+.

  • Pros: awesome, stable, easy overclocking

Overclocker's Delight

  • Summary: If you're into higher-end gaming and performance systems, and you like to overclock your hardware, this is a great chip for that purpose. There are a few things to keep in mind: While the unit comes with a HSF and thermal paste pre-applied, if you want to overclock this CPU you are going to want to purchase a third-party HSF cooling solution as this processor tends to run hotter than its predecessors.

  • Summary: Great CPU with great overclokability with custom cooler. Hyperthread really make a difference when rendering with High-End software. I was going for an i5 3570K ok this one and I don't regret going with this i7.
  • Pros: Powerful, Overclockable
  • Cons: Expensive upgrade from an i5
