5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Processor, Extreme Low Power

Pros: This thing can be Clocked @ 2.93 GHz and undervolted to 1.2V to reduce the power consumption like crazy.
Also it easily overclocks to 3.2GHz @ 1.32V and to 3.4GHz @ 1.45V.

This is the best processor for playing games and accelerate single threaded applications.

Cons: The high price that one has to pay for the best silicon die.

Other Thoughts: It's the best dual core!!!

5 out of 5 eggsTHE PRICE IS AMAZING!!!

Pros: Ok, just look at that price! Its incredible! I mean, seriously, its so cheap. Especially against those really REALLY slow Q6600's that are ONLY clocked at 2.4 Ghz and can be overlcocked to ONLY 3.4 Ghz with a simple bios setting... I mean seriously, its not like the Q6600's are QUAD CORE or anything, and they SURE WON'T BE ABLE TO RUN FUTURE APPS. And just look at those E8400's... they only OC to 4.2 Ghz on STOCK COOLNG. This processor is sure a great deal.. the price and everything!

Cons: There are NO CONS AT ALL! Its just so speedy and I can't find a better price.

Other Thoughts: Frigging ret@rds... this proc $uck$, everyone that bought this was a ret@rd.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat processor

Pros: Fast Fast Fast, loads programs and OS very quick.I have it overclocked to 3.47 in an Intel D975XBX2 w/coolit freezone and temps average 24-28 degrees depending on ambient temperature.

Cons: I guess price !!!!! and the new batch of quadcores for less money
But the same will happens when you buy your new quad now and six months down the road will be newer and faster processors out.

Other Thoughts: I bought mine from newegg.com 2 years ago at the same price and still kicking AXX.You can barely see difference in speed compare to quadcores procs, unless U R running many programs at a time.

5 out of 5 eggsWoot Extreme series

Pros: Amazing overclocking abilities. It can take anything you throw at it and almost never get bogged down. I can't say enough good things about it :)

Cons: A little hot, but I'm still running stock cooling. I have it clocked to 3.2ghz with the multiplier, and it idles around 16C for the cpu and 24C for the system. The price was a little high, but very much worth it.

Other Thoughts: To all you people that think the e6850 is a better processor, think again. Nothing compares to overclocking with the CPU multiplier. Nothing. When I started overclocking it with the multiplier (stock 11x) and the mobo said to put in a number between 8 and 50, I knew it would be a good day :)

4 out of 5 eggsThis thing great! 6 months ago...

Pros: fast, highly overclockable, unlocked multiplier, runs cool

Cons: EXPENSIVE EXPENSIVE EXPENSIVE. If I had known that the e6850 would be released I never would have bought this. It is faster and at almost 1/3 the cost.

Other Thoughts: Do not buy this unless you are an enthusiast who just wants it for the hell of it. You are better off getting an e6850 or heck, just get a quad core.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks well in TNN-500AF Case

Pros: This has been a great processor for me. I hammer this thing with a lot of 3d rendering and animation. I run it entirely fanless in a Zalman TNN-500AF case. This system is unstoppable.

I have an XFX7950 GTX video card, 4 gigs of corsair dominator memory, a 10k WD raptor drive and a 2ndary Seagate drive. I can simultaneously render a high resolution animation and play world of warcraft without skipping a beat or slowing down.

Cons: None that I have found other than the cost.

Other Thoughts: I think this is a great processor. I purchased all of my components here at NewEgg and despite the 3 day shipping taking a week (par for the course) my purchasing experience has always been great.

5 out of 5 eggsFast

Pros: Great CPU

Cons: PRICE, never would have bought for retail price. Thankful for Intel worker discounts. Also, get rid of that stock Heatsink, it is well worth the money to get a better one.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat CPU

Pros: Fast

Cons: Expensive

Other Thoughts: Owned for six months now. Using retail heatsink and fan with Asus Striker Extreme motherboard. Haven't tried overclocking/minimal interest in overclocking. Very stable and very fast.

Pros: overclock well according to many review

Cons: none I suppose
