The Core i7-860S is the energy-efficient version of the i7-860, reducing thermal design power from 95W to 82W. It has a lower clock speed of 2.53GHz but the same max turbo frequency of 3.2GHz, 8MB Smart Cache, and other features as the regular i7-860.

  • newegg Intel Core i7 Quad-core Processor With four processing cores, the multitasking monster Quad-Core Intel Core i7-860S processor delivers fourfold the performance on highly-threaded applications, taking your desktop PC experience into a completely new realm of mega power. The powerful processor delivers serious performance on the ultra-demanding games of today and tomorrow.
  • newegg Integrated DDR3 Memory Controller With the integrated DDR3 memory controller, the Intel Core i7 enables two channels of DDR3 1333 MHz memory, resulting in up to 21 GB/sec memory bandwidth. Plus the memory controller's lower latency and higher memory bandwidth delivers amazing performance for data-intensive applications.
  • newegg Intel Smart Cache Intel Smart Cache Technology dynamically allocates the shared cache to each processor core based on workload. This efficient, multi-core-optimized implementation increases the probability that each core can access data from faster, more efficient cache subsystem resulting in significantly reduced latency for frequently used data and improved performance.
  • newegg Intel Turbo Boost Technology Intel Turbo Boost technology automatically allows processor cores to run faster than the base operating frequency if it's operating below power, current, and temperature specification limits, maximizing speed for demanding applications, dynamically accelerating performance to match your workload-more performance when you need it the most.
  • newegg Hyper-Threading Technology (HT Technology) Intel Hyper-Threading Technology delivers thread-level parallelism on each processor resulting in more efficient use of processor resources—higher processing throughput—and improved performance on the multi-threaded software of today and tomorrow.
  • newegg Intel Virtualization Technology (VT-x) Increasing manageability, security, and flexibility in IT environments, virtualization technologies like hardware-assisted Intel Virtualization Technology (Intel VT) combined with software-based virtualization solutions provide maximum system utilization by consolidating multiple environments into a single server or PC. By abstracting the software away from the underlying hardware, a world of new usage models opens up that reduce costs, increase management efficiency, strengthen security, while making your computing infrastructure more resilient in the event of a disaster.

5 out of 5 eggslow power but very powerful

Pros: This processor blows away my previous i5 95W in every way. And it idles at a lower power level. 4 cores x HT = 8 virtual cores, means that my VMs can each have virtual dual-cores while my Win 7 Ultimate x64 host still rips along without a hiccup. Supports Intel vt too.

Cons: Wish NewEgg had carried the i7-870S, then my socket 1156 board would be maxed out.

5 out of 5 eggsThe only CPU you need,

Pros: Has more speed then your computer will use. The Maximun usage i has reached was 20%.

Very reliable, no problems since i have owned it, and do not plan on having any.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Get a real fan for the I Series proccessors. These things can reach the tempature of a rocket engine. Although, you would need several safety systems to fail.

I reccoment a cool master Hyper 212 Plus. Cheap and very effective.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing CPU

Pros: Very fast and stable performance. Idles on average at 37c with my Thermaltake CLP0552 cooler and hits mid 50s with high load. Very stable with overclocks; was able to hit 3ghz and felt that I could have pushed it more.

Cons: None whatsoever!

Other Thoughts: In my opinion, best CPU for 1156 that money can buy. Intel definitely stood by their reputation with this beast of a chip.

5 out of 5 eggsi7-860 THE BEAST

Pros: This old processor has been a Stable,Fast,Beast. CPU: Bus clock 192mhz @ 19 3.68 gigahertz Intel Core i7 860 temp @ idle 45. I use the Asus Auto overclock in the bios to tune this Beast and it takes everything I throw at it. It has never BOD from overclocking. The Coolermaster Hyper 212 with 2 fans keeps it about 45c @ idle and will go up to 75c on gaming BFBC2 with 2 xfx ATI Radeon HD 5800 Series GPU's I have had it as high as 4.1 GHz but ran to hot.
