5 out of 5 eggsWorth it

Pros: Runs very cool, very stable, and if very overclockable.... its everything anyone could want in a CPU.

Cons: nothing from AMD is forcing price wars

Other Thoughts: If you can afford it.... get it.

5 out of 5 eggsWOW! Whata CPU

Pros: Simply the fastets most overclockable CPU I've ever seen. I've had it over 4Ghz and it's not even breathing hard. Runs cool and fast! Seriously...your other components will be the limiting factor in how OC'd you can get because this chip rocks!

Cons: Kinda hurts the wallet a bit.

Other Thoughts: I purchased along with a liquid cooling system but I really think this CPU would operate cool with the standard CPU FA/Heatsink setup.

5 out of 5 eggsNew Yorkie

Pros: Very stable on my EVGA 780i. Less heat. Fast and easily OC'd.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: QX9650(overclocked to 3.6 for now), EVGA 780i, 4GB Dominator 6400, 3xWD Raptors, TT Toughpower 1000w, Koolance Exos2-LX (CPU & GPU), CMSTACKER 830.

5 out of 5 eggsAMD's Death Knell

Pros: Excellent performance, overclocks into the realm of 4 ghz and outperformes any other comsumer chip. the massive amount of l2 Cache lends a significant perofmance boost and it generaly devours whatever is thrown at it. Handles most applications with a 15-25% perofmance boost (in CPU intensive apps) gaming perfomance is a slight gain (think under 10%) as games rely heavily on the GPU for most of the rendering and 3-d content. Did score well on the future mark cpu rendering test (but it fails utterly in 3-d rendering to a dedicated video card, even an acient one) but for those who game and render 3-d you won't be using your processor for those tasks.

Cons: Sandbagging. There. I said it. Intel is not being pressured by AMD and the clock speed has dropped from the sneak peaks press releases from the mid-3ghz range down to 3 ghz. The chip outperformes all other chips (intel, amd, or via (if you want to call via a comptetitive processor [far from it]) but intel has delivered its best goodness at the best prices when pressured by amd...and is the price really worth it? That is for only you to decide...but for a single component of a machine it seems rather high. The power taken in by this behemoth dwarfs that of a mid-range chip. runs a little warm for a stock fanless heatsync.

Other Thoughts: I am an AMD fan who builds machines and there have been some requiests for this processor and I have found it an easy chip to work with along with most high end intel chips...(ditto for ALL of AMD's chips) the lower itnel chips have a great overclock potential, but generaly unimpressed with lower intel chips from compatability to doa's fo stability issues...but from the e6600 and up the ratings are all good...
Though I hold a grudge against this juggernaut (Intel) I have no choice but to recomend thier high end processors to the performance mavens. if your going for a midrange machine go AMD

5 out of 5 eggsWow

Pros: Runs any 3D game to date without a hitch. Ability to multi-task is unprecidented. Burn, Listen, Play CoD4, run anti-virus scan, flop@home and it does not lag AT ALL.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I personally don't OC but my friend has the same proc and mobo, OC-ed by changing multiplier to 10, bus speed to 400 and it ran at 4Ghz no problems. I just won't try it because I have a warranty voiding phobia.

5 out of 5 eggsWonderful overclocker

Pros: Great overclocker. Using mild watercooling (Corsair Nataulus 500, cooling both CPU and NB on a Maximus Formula SE board) I'm getting, despite what "Be Careful..." says is impossible 4.0 ghz OC at 1.4 volts. IMO my watercooling setup isn't that much stronger then air cooling, I mostly got it to cool the NB chip, since my board came with a built in NB waterblock. Anyway, wonderful CPU.

Cons: I won't say price since a) This is an Intel EE edition CPU. Obviously I expect $1000 or more for the CPU and b) If you're willing to pay the price, can you truly complain?

Other Thoughts: Very happy overall. This CPU I'm sure will last me until the next core comes out, easily

5 out of 5 eggsblinding

Pros: Astounding performance, runs very cool. Temperatures are lower than on my old AMD X2 5200+. SuperPI 1M went from 29 seconds to 12. Poor AMD.

Cons: No SLI motherboards for it yet. Forced me to abandon my SLI mobo with dual 8800 GTXs.

Other Thoughts: I've never had a CPU like this. So fast, runs so cool, so easy to OC. Just amazing.

5 out of 5 eggsBe Careful what you read

Pros: Fastest on market. Overclocks easy.

Cons: None that I can think of :)

Other Thoughts: You will not be 100% stable at 3.6 with stock vcore. Neither will you be 100% stable on less than 1.425v @ 4Ghz. To those who say you will I ask what tests have you runt to test stability. Run prime 95 with small fft's and see if you are really stable.

4 out of 5 eggsneed for speed

Pros: Even Though Jan. Holds new versions. This will still hold it's own. With this chip you don't need to O.C. Thing is you can.
It's not so much the chip but the new build(45 nm) It will be hard to stop until the actual quad build completely changes.

Cons: I know the X38 set has the PCIe 2.0 and the p35 don't but still both need that update. Flashing bios is not something that people like to do. YOU are REQUIRED to do a flash to use this chip to it's fullest! Definite down side but we have to put that on the Mo-Bo builders

Other Thoughts: So heres the deal If any of you out there read this I will check. I decided to go with a P35 Chipset, because even though the X38 is better you can't take advantage of those improvements for a long time. The Boards that have x38 are limited. (PCI structure) DX10 is still kinda broke as is Vista(Sp1) so DX10.1 and PCIe 2.0 are so far away that the versatility of a P35 set was worth the trade. But I could use some help with the BIOS flash. Any posts about the ASUS P5K3 Deluxe WiFi would be a great help.

5 out of 5 eggsWaiting for price Drop

Pros: The Ultimate in chips right now

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: No need to water cool so save your money, it over clocks to 4.0 Ghz on air. Remember it's 45nm and runs cooler
