Crush your enemies, climb the tower of paperwork -- or do both at the same time. Intel's Core i7 processor not only makes it possible, it makes it easy. The Core i7 920 has four cores that run at 2.66GHz and shares 8MB of L3 cache.

Quad cores means true multi-tasking and multi-threading. One core handles the usual action on your operating system, while the second can play a DVD on the TV, the third download a file from internet, and the fourth one sends audio to the kids in another room without lags or stutters. All this is made easier with Intel’s advanced Digital Media Boost.

With Intel Turbo Boost technology and Intel Hyper-Threading technology, The Core i7 enables highly threaded applications or demanding applications to work in maximum speed without any extra effort. The 45nm Intel Core i7 processor is armed with Intel HD Boost, which implementing new Intel Streaming SIMD Extension 4.1 (Intel SSE4.1) instructions for fast high definition video editing and encoding, enhance the multimedia performance.

  • newegg Intel Core i7 Quad-core Processor With four processing cores, the multitasking monster Quad-Core Intel Core i7 processor delivers fourfold the performance on highly-threaded applications, taking your desktop PC experience into a completely new realm of mega power. The powerful processor delivers serious performance on the ultra-demanding games of today and tomorrow. The innovative 45nm quad-core technology optimizes thermal performance for reduced power consumption and noise.
  • newegg Integrated DDR3 Memory Controller With the integrated DDR3 memory controller, the Intel Core i7 enables three channels of DDR3 1066 MHz memory, resulting in up to 25.6 GB/sec memory bandwidth. Plus the memory controller's lower latency and higher memory bandwidth delivers amazing performance for data-intensive applications.
  • newegg Intel Advanced Smart Cache Intel Advanced Smart Cache Technology dynamically allocates the shared L3 cache to each processor core based on workload. This efficient, multi-core-optimized implementation increases the probability that each core can access data from fast L3 cache, resulting in significantly reduced latency for frequently used data and improved performance.
  • newegg Intel Turbo Boost technology Intel Turbo Boost technology maximizes speed for demanding applications, dynamically accelerating performance to match your workload-more performance when you need it the most.

Great processor 4/6/2011 10:33:05 PM

Pros: I have had this chip in and out of MOBO's 7-8 times. I somehow got thermal compound on pins. I took a BIG risk, just wiped it off carefully, used compressed air to clean anything else off, and put it in the MOBO. I have ran this chip OC from 3.6-3.8 consistently for almost a year and a half. It is still running strong without any problems. Great chip!

Cons: Stupid thing won't die so I can convince my wife to let me buy an I7 extreme!

Overall Review: Some people rave about the 920. Fine, but when OC'ing, you have to crank the BLCK to achieve the same OC.

bought this to compare to my 920 3/9/2011 5:38:29 AM

Pros: I purchased this to see if it would overclock any better than my 920. Lower Bclk should allow for a better OC. Same board, same Ram, same results at around 4.2. Not complaining, its is a good processor, but not worth it for OC purposes when the 920 can be had for much cheaper.

Cons: None really.

Overall Review: Stick with a 920 if your planning on OC'ing

Fast 3/7/2011 3:45:28 PM

Pros: This was a nice upgrade over my Q8300. In stock form the i7 was a slower GHz than my OC'd Core Duo but considerably faster performance. I was able to overclock this CPU to 4.1GHz with little trouble but on air it was pretty hot so I ramped it down to just under 4.0 GHz for everyday use.

Cons: A little pricey. Stock fan needs to be replaced for any overclocking attempts but that should be expected. My stock fan on stock settings would reach 66C on Prime 95 blend at 70F room temps and idle at 29C.
