5 out of 5 eggs2 years, no complaints.

Pros: I've had this CPU for over two years, and it's been great. With HT enabled, I've got a stable OC of 3.8 GHz on a Corsair H80 cooler.

Great for video encoding, 3D rendering, 3D modeling, animation, gaming, and everyday PC use. Basically, it's been an all-around workhorse for all my computer needs.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Even though it's been long discontinued, it's highly worth considering if you can find one cheap through other outlets.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: really fast for being less than 3.0 GHz.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Just make sure that when u overclock, which u should for this processor, u invest in a good water cooling cpu solution. Ex: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835181017

5 out of 5 eggsNice Product!

Pros: I've got this CPU for almost a year and I OC'd it, after the first 30 days allowed to RMA it to newegg, to 3.82Ghz and never had problem with it.

Before I move, I was living in a colder room, so 3.8 reaches 70 degrees under prime 95 but now in my new living room it's a lot hotter and under 100% it's going to 74 so I didn't push it. But I still let it to 3.8 and while playing last released game with high quality graphics it only reaches 55-60 so it's alright.

Cons: NONE!

Other Thoughts: I have a H70 to cool this monster and it does the job. I'm now building a new set up with a 2600k and still going with water cooling (H100) I hope I will get something close to 4.8 if I am lucky :)

4 out of 5 eggsVery Fast

Pros: Very fast stable at stock speeds

Cons: I was able to get it to 4ghz with a EVGA Classified 200 MB and a Cosair H70 cooler but it can no longer be pushed this far I only OC'd it for short periods and kept the temps below 75c, I don't know if this is realy a con but OCing might lower it's ability to run at higher speeds now I am lucky if I can get it to boot at 3.5ghz

5 out of 5 eggsi7's or nothing

Pros: bought this last year for a gaming build. i have it clocked at 3.53ghz which suits my needs for gaming. tried for a 4.0+ ghz clock but couldnt find a stable clock for it. probably should have gone with 1366 socket but at the time was to much $$$, now its looking do able. i have had this setup running for 1 year+ now and no probs

Cons: none
