Pros: The set is fast and well-priced.
Other Thoughts: I can get the set to run at 1594Mhz with 8-9-8-20 at the rated voltage of 1.5v. However, with the rated timings of 9-9-9-24, I cannot get the RAM to run at 1600Mhz without bumping the voltage to 1.7 volts. This isn't a problem as 6Mhz isn't anything to lose sleep over, especially with the tighter timings.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Crisp, clean picture at an affordable price.

This review is from: Intel Core i7-950 Bloomfield Quad-Core 3.06GHz LGA 1366 130W Processor BX80601950
Pros: With the relatively recent price drop to $300, this processor is a steal. It has strong benchmark scores, overclocks well, and is powerful right out of the box. It's fast, it's stable, and it multitasks like a champ. If you want high-end speed and versatility without paying the premiums for the 980x, 970, etc, buy this processor now.
Cons: It's true, the heatsink isn't fantastic, but are you looking at the i7 950 to buy a heatsink or to buy a great processor? Exactly. Buy the processor.
