Intel Core i7-930 Bloomfield Quad-Core 2.8 GHz LGA 1366 130W BX80601930 Desktop Processor

5 out of 5 eggs 3 years later and still running strong 09/12/2013

This review is from: Intel Core i7-930 Bloomfield Quad-Core 2.8 GHz LGA 1366 130W BX80601930 Desktop Processor

Pros: I've owned this CPU for over 3 years now. Purchased back in July of 2010, this processor doesn't feel a lick slower then the day it came out of the box. That's at stock speeds!

My last build (purchased around April of 2006) made it until 2010 when I just couldn't take it any more. This machine (built in July of 2010), feels basically just as fast as it did when I built it!

I imagine I'll get at least two to three more years out of it (pending hardware failures *knock on wood*) before I'm wanting to go bigger.

I'm still wanting to upgrade my cooler and overclock this champ, but so far I have no need to do so.

Cons: None that I can think of!

At this point in it's life (3 years) my old Operton 165 was showing signs of its age. This thing so far hasn't!

2 out of 5 eggs Updated Review 09/12/2013

This review is from: ASRock X58 Extreme LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: It's worked for over three years now. In the world of today, that alone is a feat. But it's still churning along like a champ.

Also a shout out to my core i7 930 which is still plenty fast at stock speeds and my radeon HD 5870. Both have aged very well so far!

Cons: It still has the posting issue, but it seems to be a lot less frequent now a days. I have been shutting my PC off at all times when not using it, now that I am more conscious about the energy bill if you know what I mean. Maybe every few times it doesn't post the first try.

I don't know if the problem with this board was the fault of asRock or intel. I know that this chipset was intel's first crack at an integrated memory controller and I remember reading something about that causing all kinds of problems. Either way, I've upgraded to two eggs on this one. Which is still bad.

Other Thoughts: Do you homework, and read plenty of reviews.

Although I do have problems, this computer is still a beast.

Pros: Over two years later this thing is still cranking out serious FPS paired with my i7 930 (stock) and 6GB of ram.

I play at 1920x1080 on my 47" Sony Bravia HDTV and I can play games at crazy frame rates!

Cons: None!
