5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

Pros: Fast, goes without saying. This processor blazes. Was easy to drop in, and I used the factory heatsink with the factory thermal solution. The CPU stays between 28, and 34 oC

Cons: The directions were just pictures? lol, none.

5 out of 5 eggsIntel has 8 cores too!

Pros: 1. Hyperthreading.
2. Less power consumption than some cpus (including indeed some of Intel's).
3. Much improved over, for example, the first generation i7 CPUs (or 2nd or...). Even my first generation i7 920 performs very well to a lot of more recent CPUs and makes it fairly difficult to justify bothering with a new build without some other reason. This is however what generation? Right.
4. Capability of graphics so that one does not necessarily have to have a physical graphics card (thereby saving space in case, saving money, ...).
5. Please see other thoughts where I dispel some myths about CPU clock speed being the only relevant factor, bogus number of cores claims and other nonsense some think to be fact but are in actuality false or half-truths at best.

Cons: The only two downsides which are both excusable:
1. The cost (you get what you pay for, however)
2. It isn't the extreme edition and it isn't a super computer cpu. Really, you can think of many many things if you try even a tiny bit, and yet they're fairly irrelevant. It's about perspective. See also 1, above, and how you get what you pay for; indeed, no one is stopping you from buying a super computer or anything else you want.

Other Thoughts: This is to those who seem to not understand some very crucial differences between Intel and AMD, and therefore trying to suggest one is better than the other or any similar such thing, based on myths and/or misinformation and/or incorrect assumptions.
1. Last I knew, Intel has a different rating system than AMD. Also, clock speed alone is not the only relevant part of performance (why also do you think the GPU can be used to further benefit performance of tasks? Why do you think your disks can only read/write up to a certain point lower than the supposed max? Need I go on?). This is basic stuff.
2. So says the most critical review that AMD has had 8 cores for over two years. Well, the funny thing is, this CPU does too: it is called hyperthreading. That means for each core there is a virtual core which works just as well as the other. This also means that Intel's 6 core CPU is > AMD's 8 core CPU in the number of cores: indeed, any Intel CPU that has hyperthreading may as well have the # physical cores * 2. Furthermore, on the subject of years, check this. My i7 920 first generation which is quite a few more years older than 2 years, has 8 cores because it too has hyperthreading:
$ grep -c processor /proc/cpuinfo
8
Which means that: the 'file' that gives info on the cpu has 8 lines which include 'processor' which is the line that shows which core number the 'cpu' is. I want to say that the first generation i7 came out in 2007 but perhaps it was 2008? Either way, the only downside is not a downside: you get what you pay for (see further below). (Shortly though: it isn't comparable or as simple as "one is cheaper than the other and the cheaper one has more cores or faster clock or more overlcock capabilities").
Of course, none of this matters if the operating system or the software in question does not take advantage of concurrency.

On overclocking, the suggestion that amd cpus are unlocked for "infinite overclock" - this is not only a myth it is somewhat ironic. I would like to see you get your cpu at 20Ghz for instance and even if you could get it there I would like to see the cpu last long and even if that happened I'd like to see it remain stable. And even if you could get it to that with or without incredibly cooling, there is more to it than clock speed. Indeed, there are other bottlenecks. Further, how it is ironic is simple: Intel has higher safe temperatures and guess what less power will do as well? Exactly.

The only thing to consider then, is this: your budget (whether you don't have enough for one or whether you just don't feel comfortable spending X amount when cheaper options are available) and that includes your return on investment (also considering the other components in the build for budget). I mean that when deciding on which to go for. Aside that, hopefully this dispels some of the myths about clock speed being the only relevant spec, about overclocking, temperature (and power consumption) as well as bottlenecks in g

5 out of 5 eggsThese i7's aren't from Earth.

Pros: Mind boggling speeds. Super efficient. Not too expensive. Pretty cool architecture. It's more anxious for DX12 than I am. No need for me to overclock. Definitely worth you're money.

Cons: Not fond of the stock fan.

Other Thoughts: Now's the time to upgrade folks. DX12 is bangin' on our doors.....and Unity too.

5 out of 5 eggsPure Luxury

Pros: I am simply amazed. I planned my build around this chip and the Asus z87 expert mobo, and im so glad I did.

Asus' 4 way optimization gave me a light 10% cpu overclock and a 13% gpu overclock (integrated graphics) right out of the box.

The integrated gpu architecture on this thing must be incredibly special. Im running Diablo III on close to max settings without a hiccup. Its absolutely strange and a little disturbing to look into the case and realize theres no graphics card inside...

I had to stagger my build because I couldnt afford the graphics card I wanted right away. If youre in the same situation, wait on the card, and pay more for the better chip!

Cons: The cost, but in retrospect I would have easily done it again.

Other Thoughts: If you are someone who does graphic design or uses DAWS like ableton/cubase to compose music ( i do all of the above) this thing is worth its weight in gold simply for the multithreading technology. Ableton, cubase and other DAWs all have the capability to take serious advantage of this tech. Capitalize on it.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Proc

Pros: Fast Processor. Fired up right the first time without issue. On-Board video works great.

Cons: Technically speaking, none.

Other Thoughts: I am running dual video screens using the 2600 on-board video processor. Runs without hickups, though I'm not gaming. Plan on getting a video card at some point, but if you are looking to limit your initial outlay in building a computer, this chip works great.

This would have been even better as Newegg just put the 4770K processor on sale for the same price as this one, less than a month after I bought this one, which I would have bought for it's slightly higher proc speed and its unlocked capabilities.

5 out of 5 eggsLightning in a bottle

Pros: -Super fast with great energy efficiency. It has laughed at pretty much everything i have thrown at it. If you aren't into overclocking this is pretty much all you need.
-I got this on sale, but the 4771 is out, its a little faster, or so i hear, and only a few bucks more, so really just go with whichever one is cheaper.

Cons: Stock cooler is kind of weak.

Other Thoughts: Everyone's situation is different when it comes to CPU cooling, but this is my take. The chip runs a little hot, mine idles around 30 C, but at load gets up to 70 C. I personally don't like temps much above 60 C, but thats me. My case is fairly large, with good airflow, but the load temps still bother me, and nothing is overclocked. Smaller cases, cluttered cases, and rooms with high average temperatures should consider an aftermarket cooler. Necessary? No. Worth it?...Thats up to you.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Fast/powerful. Effortless installation. Good price/performance factor.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Faster than the GHz would seem to indicate. Although processor speed hasn't advanced like it used to, core counts and hyperthreading have and they add up to quite the punch. My old system was starting to bog down under the latest photo editing and 3D design programs. Not any more.

Stock cooler is better than expected: 28°C @ idle in a stock Corsair 550D case. 35°C under moderate load. Max not yet tested.

5 out of 5 eggsQuick! Powerful!

Pros: This CPU is QUICK and definitely worth the money! I have no gripes with this when it comes to multitasking! I love the hyper-threading and I take advantage of it when recording games like SWTOR and Minecraft! Very impressive CPU! You wont be disappointed with this one!

Cons: None!
