Pros
fast and reliable
Cons
hot
Summary
I love this processor,
very fast,
the only downside is the stock heat sink
doesn't seems to cool the temp good enough,
it is working but temperature is a bit high.

Pros
At the Time, it Was the Newest.
Great OC, Intel makes good shit.
Cons
Now the Sandybridge stuff is out, id go with that.
Summary
This is a Great processor for 1366, but if your doing a whole new build, just go with a 2nd Series I7, its newer and More revamped.

I actually bought this one month befor ethe 2nd Series i7s, but it still rocks.

Pros
Fast!
Cheaper than the i7 950
Cons
Runs hot with 3 120mm fans. Consider aftermarket cooling.
Summary
The 960 is extremely fast, and for the price, probably the best price-for-speed LGA1366 i7 currently on the market.

Pros
Fast, reasonably cool, quiet fan, supports virtualization direct hardware access.
Cons
Very occasional excessive CPU usage with specific video transcoding apps but keeps up OK, does not support trusted execution which means you can still get rooted but at least there's no copyright control.
Summary
Will allow admin-user/root-level virtual systems to directly access system hardware, but I will still get a separate SSD volume for a Windows installation sometime in the future.

Pretty good, but too bad I didn't get a better one, for example with trusted execution (CPU and motherboard must both have hardware stuff built in for this). Of course, with this CPU one accepts the possibility of being rooted while having the ability to play with copyrighted stuff. With trusted execution, rootkits are almost impossible (and so is playing with digitally rights-managed media).

With the GTX570 video card running 2 monitors on the Intel X58 gaming board, the setup will play anything smoothly except the most HD intensive material. So far though, I haven't tested it with certain Windows-based video games.

With CUDA possibly being integrated with certain Linux operating systems sometime in the near future, massive parallel computing may be possible with certain hardware combinations, resulting in interesting computational abilities.

Good price, good performance.

Pros
speed
runs cool
Cons
none
Summary
I Really like this CPU. Its fast and runs through anything you throw at it. Runs pretty cool with my Zalman CNPS9900A CPU cooler. Was a great price at the time of purchase. Due to the price and so many more reviews with it being out for a while I chose this over the I7 2600 k as I am not really into over clocking and at the time the motherboards for the LGA1155 were just coming back on the market.

Pros
Runs great and cool at stock, overclock to 4500 mhz since day one (24/7), naturally its water cooled, idle at 38c load is 44c
Cons
hmmmm none
Summary
Wish I only paid 300.00 but I bought it at 600.00 first released so you pay for it. Most definitely worth 300.
