  • newegg Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology (EIST) EIST allows the system to dynamically adjust processor voltage and core frequency to decrease average power consumption and average heat production. Combined with existing power saving features, EIST may provide an excellent balance between providing power when you need it and conserving power when you don’t.
  • newegg Execute Disable Bit (EDB) Intel's Execute Disable Bit function can prevent certain classes of malicious "buffer overflow" attacks when combined with a supporting operating system. Execute Disable Bit allows the processor to classify areas in memory where application code can execute and where it cannot. When a malicious worm attempts to insert code in the buffer, the processor disables code execution, preventing damage or worm propagation.
  • newegg Intel Virtualization Technology (Intel VT) With Intel VT, one hardware platform functions as multiple "virtual" platforms. For business, Intel VT offers improved manageability, limiting downtime and maintaining worker productivity by isolating computing activities into separate partitions. In the home, Intel VT allows creating unique user environments for multiple family members using the same platform simultaneously.

Rock solid and keeps on ticking.

Pros: Longevity

Cons: Can't find parts that would still work with it.

Overall Review: Bought this CPU back in January of 2010. Its still sitting in my HTPC chugging along. I don't care how long it takes to transcode video or remove commercials since its happening in the background, and my shows are ready when they are ready. But 8+ years of cranking out video and still going strong.

Still working!

Pros: Bought in 2010, still running 2017. It runs all the games I want, which performance wise is up to Tomb Raider. My other games aren't as taxing.

Cons: None. However, I never tried messing with the settings.

Overall Review: Amd are cheaper but I really liked this and I can say with 90% certainty that my next CPU will be Intel

Awesome CPU

Pros: I bought a prebuilt made by Ibuypower with the I5-750 in 2010 and have since replaced the stock cooler, ram, and GPU. I replaced the stock cooler with a large and in charge Noctua air cooler. I replaced the stock 4 GB of ram with 8 GB 1600 Mhz Gskill Ripjaws. I run this CPU @ 3485.7ghz with a multiplier of 21 and BCLK of 166Mhz. I usually never see CPU temps above 65C in my real world gaming usage. My mobo is Gigabyte P55M-UD2 and my GPU is EVGA GeForce GTX 660 Ti SC 2GB. I find I am still able to run most games with settings maxed @1920x1080p here in 2015. I am able to play any game with great satisfaction in terms of high settings and fps and my 5 year old I5-750 and my 2 year old GPU are still delivering outstanding results. At this time I own over 800 games on Steam and many more beyond that. Intel made a real nice CPU with the I5-750. The 1st generation core I5 and its 45nm Lynnfield Nehalem micro-architecture have delivered excellent performance and vale over time and I am extremely satisfied with this purchase.

Cons: CPU can sometimes make a high pitch squealing noise if it is OC too high or if alt tabbing back and forth between a game and steam the noise can be noticed.

Overall Review: I5-750 is an awesome CPU.

i5 750

Pros: Was used since 2009 and still keeps up with current GPU's, This CPU is still better than anything AMD has to offer.

Cons: Zero

Overall Review: I loved this CPU the performance is still decent enough to not bottleneck current high end GPU's, But I replaced it with a i5 3470 because finally after 5 years it is starting to reach it's limits. But honestly anyone still using a i5 750 could get a couple of more years out of it.

Still going...and going....

Pros: Bought this processor around Oct. 2010, and it's been going strong in my P55 SLI motherboard ever since. I've had it overclocked to 4.0 GHz on a Coolermaster Hyper 212+, but I usually leave it around 3.6 just to avoid the extra heat. I'm still playing new AAA games, 5 years after the processor was introduced.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: I've upgraded my video cards twice since I bought this CPU. 9800 GTX+ SLI to a GTX 570, and a GTX 680 two years ago.

Pros: Great processor! I bought it from Newegg in February of 2012 for a new gaming build. Its been going strong ever since, and handles everything I throw at it with no problems. I have no reason to upgrade it yet.

Cons: None.
