Intel Core i5-750 Lynnfield Quad-Core 2.66 GHz LGA 1156 95W BX80605I5750 Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Quad Core and a 45nm design with a 95w rated consumption and a 2.66Ghz speed, BCLK 133. Pushed to 4.16Ghz (20x208) for daily use. Runs 100% stable after Prime 95 x64 on a quad-boot setup (Hackintosh, Win XP, Win 7, Ubuntu 10.10). It was running around 40C at idle and 80C @ full load under these speeds with a Thermaltake Frio CPU cooler and AS-5 paste which is acceptable but too high for my liking. I lapped the CPU (I know it voids warranty so don't do it unless you want to risk it) and now it always stays under 32C idle and 71C under load. These temps were recorded in 85F ambient temps.

Cons: Not HT

Other Thoughts: Tricky with DDR3-1600 speeds if overclocking the whole system and not just the CPU so I suggest to get ram in the DDR3-2000+ range to keep you happy =)

5 out of 5 eggs More cowbell, NO! More LUX! 10/26/2010

This review is from: LOGISYS Computer CLK12BL2 12" DUAL COLD CATHODE KIT

Pros: Lightweight & very bright for their diameter. I checked my PSU and it only raises 10 watts max for both lights when my computer is on idle and I play with the switch. Installed with Azza solano 1000 w/blue LED fans, 6x1GB Crucial Ballistix Tracers (blue) & a KINGWIN Lazer LZ-850 850W modular power supply (switched to blue)... it looks monotone in there but it doesn't hurt my eyes, can see everything inside the case in detail (including some glow in the dark stickers) & can see where dirt is hiding.

Cons: The velcro pieces suck! I had a bear of a time with the light I placed on the ceiling of the box, it kept coming off until I took a lighter to the sticky part for a second or two and voilà! Another gripe is the short cables. I had to cut and solder some extension wires for extra length.

Other Thoughts: Don't plan on placement in your box before buying unless you know how to cut and splice wires safely.

Pros: As the title says: 4.2Ghz on air no problem. This processor gets a 5 egg score for the stable 42% increase in speed. CPU>Price = Happy =)

Cons: No Hyper Threading and it gets pretty warm within the safe 1.4 Vcore limit... I'm thinking it's my Thermaltake CPU Cooler though. Will wait the 200 Hrs for the Arctic Silver 5 to break her in

Other Thoughts: OC on a Gigabyte P55A-UD6 (c) @ 1.39 Vcore, Thermaltake Frio (80 Celcius on prime95 X64 for 24hrs), DDR3-1600 Crucial Ballistix Tracers @ 8-8-8-20-28 1T, 850 Kingwin PSU... It's easy to OC. 3D Mark Vantage gave me a 51261 CPU score with stock performance settings and Superpi m32 gave me a time of 9m 09.57s.
