The Best of The Beast! 4/23/2009 9:17:12 PM

Pros: Very powerful processor, much cooler than my previous Extreme setup which was the EE 3.73Ghz CPU, I still like this CPU, running on the Zalman 9700NT very cool below 22C idle. Would buy another if the economy wasn’t this bad.

Cons: Price, Price and Price! But in America everyone should know "I get what you paid for" and "there's nothing for free". So buy this if you have cash flow!

Overall Review: I'll skip the i7 line of Processor and wait till Intel releases the Extreme i7 at 33nm then it's time for me to upgrade.

THE MOST POWERFUL 775 SOCKET PROCESSOR EVER CREATED 4/13/2009 5:19:31 PM

Pros: This processor is incredibly powerful. There isn't anything I can't do.

Cons: It's TDP of 136 watts makes it one of the hottest processors ever manufactured by Intel.

Overall Review: ONLY the Core i7 Extreme 965 is able to out perform this processor across the board regardless of application.

DO NOT BUY THIS. 4/6/2009 8:02:58 PM

Pros: Fast processor.

Cons: Already obsolete, and more expensive than a top of the line Xeon i7 of the same speed. Because of the inconvenient and unexpected release of the Core i7 line, places like newegg can't liquidate these, and they have too much money sunk into them to sell them at a loss.

This won't stack up to a standard Core i7 940, which you can purchase for 700 USD less. For the extra money, you can also get the best motherboard available for said processor, so this is a no win.

Overall Review: I feel bad for vendors, Intel really left them out to dry on this one, but thems the breaks.

Truth is 3/2/2009 8:41:59 PM

Pros: You can impress the ladies.

Cons: What you lack in brain cells you make up with dollar signs if you purchase this.

Overall Review: The best part about forking over huge sums of money instead of getting a gym membership means that your chip will be worth squat in 3 years.
