5 out of 5 eggsFTW

Pros: everything

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Over clocked to boost to 4.6 with adaptive voltage

Had it stable with ease at 4.8, just did not need it.

Works perfect with my SLI OC gtx 970 Gigabyte cards

5 out of 5 eggsawesome processor, great value

Pros: -plenty of power to run any game out there- the GPU is always the bottleneck. Current PC games don't take advantage of over 4 cores of processor power effectively anyway.
-so fast, at a pretty decent price considering the power
-easy to install since they went away from those horrible little pins that some other manufacturers still use
-easily over clocked to 4.4Ghz

Cons: -the stock cooler is insufficient when running under any load. I have to have my case fans (x2 250mm fans) blasting or else it would quickly reach max temp. I quickly replaced the cooler with an aftermarket model and it's fine 4.4ghz overclock (still use the big case fans anyway)

1 out of 5 eggsThis processor ran for 3 days and then died

Pros: None defective product

Cons: I installed this processor and it rand for 3 days. The machine was sluggish and unstable. I can home one evening and the machine would no longer boot. I purchased a new power supply and a new motherboard to attempt to get the machine running again. The new motherboard and power supply function just fine with another processor installed. As soon as this i7 is installed the machine no longer boots. NewEgg will not let me return for RMA because I do not have the original packaging. I buy alot of components from NewEgg I think this is the last order I will make.

Other Thoughts: In the past I avoided Intel processors because they were in my opinion priced too high vs. the competition.

5 out of 5 eggsAn Excelent Intel Processor

Pros: *Fast, 4 physical cores, 8 treads total.

Cons: *Ran at 90 degrees centigrade with stock cooler under load.

I recommend installing an aftermarket cooler because the stock cooler is hardly adequate.

Other Thoughts: I didn't run extensive benchmarks as the GPU affects game performance many magnitudes more than the CPU and the next best processor I own is five years old. For what its worth, the WEI rates this CPU at 7.8/7.9. I did not attempt overclocking and cannot comment on its potential.

5 out of 5 eggsIntel is not Microsoft

Pros: Amazing how fast, reliable and stable this Intel processor. Thanks to this Beauty I get higher scores in Benchmarks with a Radeon 290X card than others with high-end Nvidia GTX cards. Since they have a slower processor.

And if you are not using your rig for games only.. then this info is crucial.
By the way the "Professor" is installed in an MSI Gaming 7 Z97 mobo with 32 GB Corsair Ram and of course using the best water cooling, Corsair H105... it runs smoothly on 4.6GHz while the idle temp is only 34-38°C.

I'M LOVIN' IT!!!

Cons: Nada, zip, none.

Other Thoughts: According to my title no harm to anyone, but the huge difference between the 2 companies: Intel really knows what they are doing. No doubts.

5 out of 5 eggsTheQuiken

Pros: This is the Hot Rod ride to school while everybody else rides the little bus....beep,beep!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have a Noctua NH-D14 attached to this CPU and running AidA64 it chilled at 28-30 degrees an max spikes at 70-72 degrees and averaged 58-64 degrees down all cores while sitting in my Cooler Master HAF X thats not to bad for air cooling.
