  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - ran right outta the box!

Cons: - can't control the fan (no big deal)

Other Thoughts: great card, just built a customer a SLI computer:

Intel Core i7-920 Bloomfield Quad-Core 2.66 GHz LGA 1366 130W BX80601920 Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - idles around 33 C
- load is around 50 C
- while running crysis cpu load is around 45% LOL
- can compress a 500 mb file to max in 1 minute
- installed windows vista ultimate 64 in 16 minutes LOL
- Just as fast as the qx9770, easily
- got 6200 3dmarks easily!

Cons: these are the cons not for the cpu but for the things people say....

people say it idles hot, dont believe them, coretemp and realtemp are not 100% accurate, and the motherboard i am using has a 60C bepper that goes off that i tested, and at full load it has never went off!

my temps as state in the pros above are from the board directly...most reliable way to get temps!

Other Thoughts: you must buy this chip for the money!

640 gb western digital black 32 mb cache
