Great CPU. Intel's best CPU on the x58 platform. It does everything you want it to, and it overclocks like a dream. It is however very expensive, and rightfully so. Unless you're not trying to build the best x58 machine you possible can, look elsewhere. Otherwise this is it.

Comment: we see that there are actually situations where a Core i7-900-series chip still makes sense. Frankly, enthusiasts and gamers need not apply. You can get so much value from the Core i5-2500K for $230 that it’s entirely worth waiting for new P67-based motherboards before you buy something new.
