RUNS BETTER THAN I7 950!
24 November 2012
Summary: Well I cant say much that hasn't already been said....lol..... I can say that this is one fast CPU and for the cost It should be. The overclocking ability is very good and has very easy to use BIOS setting to accomplish overclocking for the new and technical advanced people.
Pros: This CPU is a powerhouse, installed on an EVGA MOBO, and had to underclock to get temps to an acceptable level, after that it has run flawlessly, also needed to update BIOS on EVGA-X58 / 3 way SLI, but I love the performance on this system. I am using as a web server with, 64bit microsoft server ...
Cons: Watch the auto overclock on 1366 MOBO's, temps can become a factor.
Pros: I love this chip, the only thing i can think that's a con is the 24x multi in turbo mode. Even multipliers don't work well for OCs. The 960 has a 25 multi and makes it slightly better for that reason... however mine overclocked to 4952mhz with only 1.43v Xeon's are for servers and overclockers wh...
Cons: uhh.... it is expensive, 24x multi is useless
