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

Pros: Easily overclocked. Quiet OEM heatsink (though not great for OC'ing) Runs on the new Intel X58 chipset

Cons: None thus far.

Overall Review: Intel Core i7-930 Bloomfield 2.8GHz OCZ Gold 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) ASUS ENGTX465/2DI/1GD5 GeForce GTX 465 (Fermi) 1GB ASUS P6X58D-E LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Heat sink/fan are well made and move a lot of air even after 1 year the fan blows strong. I have two of these in my system (CrossFire) and have been able to run every game current out, including Crysis at their highest quality settings and still run 58+ FPS even in intense graphical areas. Easily overclocked as well though I have mine set at default speeds as I do not need the extra power at this time and I would like to prolong the life of the cards.

Cons: No problems on my Windows Vista Ultimate x64 system, drivers seem to be very solid.

Overall Review: For the price I would recommend this product and am thinking of getting two more seeing as I have a quad PCI-E x16 mobo. A.K.A. SUPER © CCNA, MCSE, A+, Linux+

Pros: Good amount of space for additional components, very cool running, looks great, PSU at the bottom of the case rather then the top.

Cons: Hardly a con, but it did not come with a PSU.
