Crush your enemies, climb the tower of paperwork, or do both at the same time. Intel's Core i7 processor not only makes it possible, it makes it easy. The Core i7 920 has quad cores that run at 2.66GHz and shares 8MB of L3 cache.

Quad cores means true multi-tasking and multi-threading. One core handles the usual action on your operating system, while the second can play a DVD on the TV, the third download a file from internet, and the fourth one sends audio to the kids in another room without lags or stutters. All this is made easier with Intel’s advanced Digital Media Boost.

With Intel Turbo Boost technology and Intel Hyper-Threading technology, The Core i7 enables highly threaded applications or demanding applications to work in maximum speed without need the slightest effort. The 45nm Intel Core i7 processor is armed Intel HD Boost, which implementing new Intel Streaming SIMD Extension 4.1 (Intel SSE4.1) instructions for fast high definition video editing and encoding, enhance the multimedia performance.

5 out of 5 eggs5 years later

Pros: 5 years later I still have no need to update my processor. I've changed graphics cards twice in the past 5 years for my gaming PC. But I'm still running this processor overclocked on air at 4 ghz. i've had it this overclocked since day 1 and its still going strong.
I swear this has got to be one of those rare items in processor history that is somehow still relavent and usable after this long.

Cons: zero, zilch, notta

5 out of 5 eggsBest CPU Investment ever

Pros: Overclockable as hell. Still Relevant 5 years later (with overclocking) OC to 4.2Ghz on a Corsair H100 water cooler. Had it up to 3.95 and VERY Stable on AIr Cooling before.

Running Multiplier at 21.0, FSB 200, CoreV 1.50, PLL 2.10, DRAM 1.6, 9-9-9-24 (Corsair DDR1600 @1604Mhz) = 4199.99 Mhz.

~45 C while gaming, Prime95 ~tops out at 88 C but is stable for days with 8 threads running at 100%

I'm running Watch Dogs and Wolfenstein TNO on this puppy with 2x GTX 770s in SLI and it screams (Although Watch Dogs does have some optimization issues the developer needs to work out with a patch).

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I'm glad I paid a little more back in 2009 to "Stay ahead of the curve" I didn't realize how "ahead" this chip was when it came out. I still am having a hard time justifying an upgrade to new mobo and chip, since this thing is still chewing up every game I throw at it.

5 out of 5 eggsThe CPU is still being relevant

Pros: I have been running the CPU at 4 Ghz for about 5 years! It is still running strong and has not fallen far behind in performance vs. the newer comparable CPUs.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsNever had a cpu this long stay up to date

Pros: First of all I bought this 5 years ago as other reviewers have done and I am amazes at how well it performs. When I built my pc in 2009 with 12gbs of ram I was using it for gaming and work (photoshop) - Now that 2009 build using this CPU is my fulltime work computer that renders 2-5gb photoshop files for large and grand format printing and it still feels like it runs circles around my clients using newer computers or the latest macs.

I have NEVER owned a processor that didn't make me feel like it belonged in a museum after 2 years. This thing does not feel one bit dated. If there were more current motherboards for this chip I wouldn't hesitate to reuse it. Intel really built a solid performer with this one.

Unlike other reviewers I have enjoyed this chip from day 1 without overclocking it. It's stock speeds have treated me well and have never seemed to require more. I do still play some games on this pc, but most loss in frames per second would be a video card issue as this chip can still handle any modern game with ease. Now I need to go find a way to keep using this chip after I replace this computer!

Cons: By todays standard the lga 1366 is no longer easily obtainable.

Other Thoughts: Depending on your needs there is no reason to upgrade from this chip if you still own it. If gaming is your thing and you plan on upgrading components including your video card I suggest picking out the video card first and seeing how well your old system performs before upgrading to a new mobo/CPU. If you're not on a budget go buy another I7 as they have proven their selves. I have given out nothing but compliments on this chip and being a computer owner of both AMD and intel for years It's hard to think about ever trying another AMD chip after getting used to this quality and longevity. Even if AMD does have a chip considered just as good intel has really earned my loyality as long as these chips stay this good.

5 out of 5 eggsmonster cpu

Pros: fast, cheap, good oc, still packs a punch after 4+ years

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: to mr. CPLREGGIE
Ok first things first, to oc the cpu and/or the ram you need a motherboard that allows it. In example, i bought a second hand acer predator as it was cheap. I wanted to oc but my mother board (g7711) would not let me oc for jack, i would have had to oc with a program that acer provited. I decited and bought a secon hand asus rampage gene II, now the oc was possible, but my ram was no good so I bought some sector 5 ram that was ocable to 2400. My motherboard has option that will oc cpu and ram by itself, I can get the cpu to 3.6 and ram to 1800. But I wante da bit more so I went with 3.8 and 1800.
I`m guessing you have some hardware that sets limitation for your ram, probably your motherboard, idk I dont kow much about this stuff, all I know is with what I found on google I was able to get stable 3.8 + 1800. So if a noob like me can do this, I`m guessing your level 4 is a bit of a show off tag. Hope you didn get offended by this.
peace
