Pros: Extremely reliable - no problems yet - 24/7 operation
Cons: Little Expensive compared to AMD counterpart
I've had this processor installed on a Sabertooth X58 - Socket 1366 - Chipset X58 - ATX motherboard since 12/08/2011. Added watercooling set Antec H2O-620 120 mm . Also added Vengeance Performance 3 x 4 GΒ DDR3-1600 - PC3-12800 - CL9 (CMZ12GX3M3A1600C9) RAM Kit finally wrapped this up with Cooler Master Storm Enforcer Case and there you are ! No need to overclock just yet but all systems are ready to go.
