Intel Core i7-970 Gulftown 6-Core 3.2GHz LGA 1366 130W Desktop Processor BX80613I7970
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: This processor is fast enough for most people that want to spend the extra money. It powers through video and audio encoding tasks quickly with power to spare and anything else you can throw at it is quickly completed. I upgraded from a Q6600 and what a upgrade on speed! The processor can be overclocked, however I chose not to. This processor operates at 3.2 GHz and is fast enough for my work.

Cons: Slightly expensive for a cpu, however this is what you pay when you get a Intel. The other shortcoming is the lack of options you have when you choose to upgrade your processor, as you usually have to buy a entirely new motherboard, as the processor socket is different and won't fit your older chip.

Other Thoughts: If you need the extra speed and efficiency that the Intel processor architecture brings up and you can spend the extra $200, then I would definitely look at the six-core chips for the extra 2 cores.

5 out of 5 eggs good switch 02/24/2013

This review is from: NETGEAR 5 Port 10/100 High Performance Desktop Switch (FS605)

Pros: Fast switch does what I need it to
Runs quiet and cool

Corsair Force Series 3 CSSD-F240GB3A-BK 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fast and quiet
Big enough for the price

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Not sure why this happens but if you happen to have a marvell chipset that controls your sata ports and your ethernet ports on your motherboard, you might have speed issues with this drive. To remedy this, you have to get a motherboard with a different type of chipset.
