I9 REVIEW

Pros: This product is great! I can run my Facebook super fast and my messenger with no lag. The graphics on my Farmville look amazing. I highly recommend this processor to those looking to up thier gaming experience on Candy crush.

Cons: It's not expensive enough. Really underpriced.

i9-7980XE The big daddy of processors !!!

Pros: I got mine from another company, which I delidded and put the liquid metal Conductonaut.
This is an extremely powerful CPU with 18 cores and 36 threads of processing power, easily OC up to 4.7 Ghz on all cores, my CB15R score is 4596 ! This thing is beast, the rendering power in AutoCAD and/or SolidWorks is done in just seconds or minutes depending on the level of complexity of the mechanism (machinery elements) that you've design !!! And yes, You can have this monster render, game, virtualize, stream all at once ! And it doesn't choke at all ! It is one hell of a scary beast that literally crush any competitor to dust ! Absolutely, aggressive and brutal with no mercy at all !!!

I codename it the Terminator CPU !!!
...desire is irrelevant, I am a machine...;)

Cons: -One of the biggest con is obviously the price.
-If you want to use its full potential, you might want to delid it and change its TIM with a liquid metal solution (this will void your warranty !!!) Hopefully, anyone who's doing that, knows what is doing !
-You need a powerful PSU to run this beast with your GPUs.

Other Thoughts: To run this beast cool, I built a liquid cooling setup based on two radiators (480mm each), two pumps (pump-reservoir and pump-waterblock).
You need minimum a 1200 watts gold certified PSU if you're running two high-end OC GPU and the CPU OCed.
Make sure that your computer casing has enough air circulation to maintain optimal running temperatures.

Mother of all Processors

Pros: Ludicrous speed. I mean, seriously... 18 cores, 36 threads. In real-life testing so far, I can't throw something at it that it can't handle yet. Surprisingly, it does not get as hot as I expected for a 165W processor. I'm not overclocking or anything, but seriously hasn't gone over 50 C yet with air cooling.

Cons: Price, obviously.

Awesome Processor!

Pros: Best out there! Smashes threadripper. Mine is stable 1.0v @ 4ghz and 1.090v @ 4.5 ghz. Using Kraken x62 and EVGA FTW K will be 35C at idle, mid 40C when playing games.

Cons: Don’t let others fool you that it doesn’t get hot under full load with an AIO. Try Cinebench or Intel Burn or some other stress tester at high for 20-30mins. Temps can get up to high 80Cs and low 90Cs to the point where it can’t handle it.

Other Thoughts: Someone needs to come up with an AIO with a larger reservoir and some other additional form of active cooling (peltier maybe?)

Best Overclock i've ever gotten

Pros: Runs at 4.5 ghz @ only 1.12 volts
temperatures under 60C at full load with 480mm rad and 360 mm rad
ambient temp 70 F

Cons: Needs to be overclocked high in order to use for gaming, not a gaming processor unless minimum 4.5 ghz or higher

Best CPU I've ever owned!

Pros: 18x Cores @4.4 GHz fixed ratio @1.115V stable.
Runs at 59C under load on a H100i v2 AIO. Headroom to push further.
Paired with an ASUS Rampage VI Extreme, 128GB G.Skill 3333 Kit and Samsung 960 Pro 1TB NVMe.
Fastest consumer CPU available and by far the fastest system I've worked on.
Huge upgrade from the i7-6950X.
Benches approx 2x as fast as my dual E5-2673 v3 XEON in Cinebench.

Cons: Price. Newegg is approx $100 more than other retailers, but difficult to find one in stock.
Make sure your power supply is adequate and can supply 500W to the CPU if overclocking. Using Corsair AX1200i. Might suggest a 1500W depending on how many devices/vid cards you are running.

Other Thoughts: Highly recommended! Sell your car or take out a 2nd mortgage and buy one now if you can find it in stock.

Amazing processor

Pros: When you need extreme performance, this is the CPU to use to get it. 18 cores, 36 threads - this processor can do anything. It’s also surprisingly easy to get a 4.5 GHz all Core overclock without significant thermal issues just by gradually lowering the voltage.

Cons: It’s $2000. Not something you want to rush into buying. This is literally the price of an entire computer.

Other Thoughts: If you need extreme performance at any price, this is the CPU for you.
