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 960 has four cores that run at 3.2GHz 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 4.2 (Intel SSE4.2) 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.
  • newegg Intel Wide Dynamic Execution With Intel Wide Dynamic Execution, each of the four cores can complete up to four full instructions simultaneously, improves execution speed and efficiency, delivering more instructions per clock cycle.
  • newegg Greater Performance with Hyper-Threading Technology (HT Technology) Hyper-threading enables multi-threaded software applications to execute two software threads in parallel to improve system responsiveness. Intel Core i7 processors enabled with HT Technology deliver performance and multitasking gains that result in increased productivity and efficiency.

a solid cpu 11/24/2017 9:22:32 AM

Pros: Still running strong 7 years later. It’s now almost 2018, and my son who was at the time 6 years old, is now being passed the torch. Time for Dad to upgrade. The processor is still running strong even after it has been overclocked from day one. It has served me well and writing this is my farewell to a cpu who has given me years of gaming memories. I hope it serves my son equally as well. Farewell old friend.

Cons: I just hope 2017 models serve me as well.

Still going strong after all these years 2/23/2017 9:23:30 AM

Pros: -Wonderfully fast and feature rich processor that runs hotter than you might like (~50-60C with stock cooling), but cooler than it needs to (still safe to operate at ~80C)
-easy to install, incredible life-span, overclocking friendly
-Bought this processor in Dec of 2011 and am hard-pressed to justify the expense of upgrading away from it in 2017
-Playing Fallout 4 with lighting mods, enhanced textures, improved draw distance, improved physics mods and it's still just crushing it. Unbelievable.

Cons: -not the best bang for buck (even in it's day) but it sure brought a lot of bang
-socket discontinued, processor no longer viable
-almost too good; makes it hard to upgrade away after so many years of faithful service and its current (2017) ability to perform up to and beyond any reasonable expectation

Overall Review: -I can't in good conscience recommend this product, since you could buy a better modern processor on a still viable socket for less money. But if you're in 2010 or 2011 and you're reading this review through some kind of time portal then A) I really question your use of time portals and B) buy this processor because it will kick rears, take names and never die

Solid Processor. A workhorse and a performer. An old solider. I've had this CPU for seven years but its finally time to upgrade. 1/17/2017 4:35:25 PM

Pros: Stable, capable, fast

Cons: No cons. This CPU performs and continues to perform.

Overall Review: In its day (2010) it was a fantastic value for the money. It's a bit dated now (2017) but still very capable.

Amazing 12/1/2015 2:59:30 PM

Pros: Hard to believe I bought this 5 years ago and I have no need to upgrade unless I get tired of my mobo and its lack of connectors for USB 3.0 to the front panel. I am running a solid bunch of RAM (24GB) and using SSD of course. All that said - the machine still flies, I hardly use any processor and that's regardless if I'm game playing, running a development server, browsing New Egg or all three at once.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: Going to pick up an aftermarket cooler. I don't really believe I need it - temp is 42-45 just chilling and 50-55 when really working. Never have had any warnings, but would like to see it <40 when just browsing the web.
