This review is from: Intel Core i7-870 Lynnfield Quad-Core 2.93GHz LGA 1156 95W Processor BX80605I7870
Pros: I've got this CPU for almost a year and I OC'd it, after the first 30 days allowed to RMA it to newegg, to 3.82Ghz and never had problem with it.
Before I move, I was living in a colder room, so 3.8 reaches 70 degrees under prime 95 but now in my new living room it's a lot hotter and under 100% it's going to 74 so I didn't push it. But I still let it to 3.8 and while playing last released game with high quality graphics it only reaches 55-60 so it's alright.
Other Thoughts: I have a H70 to cool this monster and it does the job. I'm now building a new set up with a 2600k and still going with water cooling (H100) I hope I will get something close to 4.8 if I am lucky :)READ FULL REVIEW
