Rated 5 out of 5 by petemnk Powerful CPU
Pretty standard stuff from the guys at Intel. Impressive operating temperatures and nice and easy to overclock if need be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sean Great price, slightly better performance than a Core i7 980X
A little more cache would have been nice

Rated 4 out of 5 by Christopher Very quick, runs the majority of things smoothly and with no problems at all.
Originally had difficulty fitting the mounting bracket until I realised (eventually) that this design din't need one. Also not quite as good performance wise as the Ivy Bridge which i found out after purchase... In hindsight I would of gone for a cheaper IB chip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lee Performance is very very good without overclocking..
Rumor has it that this is easily clockable to 4.6Ghz and tbh I could believe it..
8 Processing Threads means this processor is probably the fastest quad core from Intel in sometime and I would highly recommend it!
It's the only quad core of this socket..
