Experience: 9 Months
-Super fast quad core processors
-Great for Hardcore Gaming & Video Editing
-Definitely worth the price tag

I got this processor paired up with a RADEON HD 6950 and 12 GB of RAM for primarily HD Gaming and this machine simply destroys anything you throw at it. The games are flawless and run silky smooth. Ultra Settings for all games and without a hiccup.

You pay the price for quality, and in this case you get one of the most efficient processors on the market. And when paired with the right Video Card you can create  a truly amazing system.

I would recommend the i7 950 to anyone looking for a quality high-performance multimedia desktop.

perfect. Nothing broken so far :D
Not much to say other than it's pretty perfect for me as I play a lot of games while streaming and watch movies at the same time. I have this with ASUS P6X58D-E X58 ATX LGA1366 3PCI-E16 PCI-E1, Corsair XMS3 TR3X6G1600C9 6GB DDR3 3X2GB DDR3-160, and GeForce GTX 570 732MHZ 1280MB 3.8GHZ GDDR5. It's been working flawlessly.

Experience: 4 Days
performance, value, temps.
For my recent pro build, i chose this cpu as i knew it would reach 4gh with ease, with a Corsair H70 it did 61-63C deg under 100% load at 3750mhz and a lil bit more at 4k.Overall a very good chip, no doubt it could go a bit more with better cooling. Recommended.

Experience: 1 Months
 Verified Owner
Runs very cool. I had no increase in temps at 3.5ghz on a stock cooler. Perfect for water coolers and overclockers.
This chip is being run on the ASUS X58 Sabertooth with 6gigs of dominator 1600 ram. Saphire Raddeon HD 6950. I don't ever see it go above 33% usage. Best bang for the buck out there.

Experience: 3 Weeks

Faster than the DX486* with the turbo button.
Not too many program taking advantages of 4 cores and 4 threads
Price drop  after purchase
"Better to have not need it than need it and not have it" so I bought this CPU. There isn't many program out there that would take advantage of all the cores and threads this CPU had to offer. Should-da buy something more suited to what I use everyday but I like the i7-9xx and x58 chipset. Until AMD have something faster, Intel will continue to be my choice. (There's also a 15% restocking fee** "Thank you for using NCIX".)

Do Stepping
Coming from a P4 3.0 to this is simply amazing. Running it on a MSI big bang xpower i 4.0 ghz ( baseclock i 200 multi at 20) at 1.25 Volts 100% stable ( prime 95 verified) with 12 gigs of corsair dominator ddr1600. Runs cool and quiet, core temps in the low 60's under 100% load (according to realtemp)

Experience: 60 Days
 Verified Owner
Fast. Fast. Fast
Runs a little warm.
Have this safely overclocked on a H50 cooler at 4ghz. Runs well, but temps are a little warmer than I would like. Definitely look at getting a decent cooler on this thing and you will be laughing! Great buy

Rock solid performance
none found yet
Had read many reviews praising this Chip, and I have to say, the reviews have so far proved correct.

Until the i7's came out I had only had AMD processors in my system. I may switch back if they catch up but with the Triple channel memory this is currently more than I will need.

Good Price
none to mention yet!
Saw this on special for a great sale price, so I bought it for my new video editing rig. Great speed, system remains running stable and no issues to date. Recommended purchase for anyone building a new fast machine.

Comment: These guys are decent

Comment: I have this cpu since 4 months! Great speed. But I had to change the fan because the heat was too high. But great CPU!
Posted by: Patrice_E @03/03/11
Comment: The middle processor was always an odd choice. Nobody would spend twice the price on basically a single multiplier increase over the bottom end model, and those who wanted the absolute best would always gravitate towards the multiplier-unlocked 975 Extreme. Recently however Intel have drastically
