Pros: A new defintion of Fast with a capital F, as good as a 3960X, cheap in comparison to it, runs cool

Cons: still fairly expensive

This processor is great. It's (almost) as fast as the i7 3960X, sometimes even faster, but costs only half its money. However, it still costs around 500$. That's the downside. The upside is that this CPU is the fastest CPU I've ever seen. Amazingly fast, it can handle anything - anything at all - I throw at it.

And it's running at cool stock temps. 25-30°C stock temps with an ambient temp of 15-20°C, so that's really good. What's even better is that I've effortlessly OCed this CPU to 4.7GHz and temps are only around 60°C at full 100% load, which is wonderful. smile.gif

So all in all: a great processor, worth its money in my opinion. smile.gif


amazon has them for 420 +6 for shipping
Yeah, they're 555€ in my country. Which comes down to about a little less than 700$. But they don't follow the prices really here, in my country.
Got mine for $223 through the Intel Retail Edge Program's Summer Deal.
