Most Critical Review

Needs a little voltage

Pros: It has a good combination of speed and timings for the price. Doesn't require voltage that will damage a Core i5/7.

Cons: Needed a little more voltage than advertised to be stable. It runs fine at 1.58V for 1333 cas 7 (on Gigabyte UD3R).

Overall Review: My goal was to find the best memory that didn't need more than 1.5v. This was close, but still needed more.

Intel Core i7-860 - Core i7 Lynnfield Quad-Core 2.8 GHz LGA 1156 95W Processor - BX80605I7860

Pros: The chip is noticeably faster than a Q6600. Overall very nice performance.

Cons: The retail heatsink is pretty sad. Much smaller than the LGA1366 chips. Since this chip will run at stock speeds it will do. Gets pretty toasty running prime95.

Overall Review: If overclocking get an aftermarket cooler.
