Installé dans l'ordinateur de grand-maman pour aller sur Youtube et jouer à la Dame de Pique, celle-ci ne comprend pas encore qu'elle possède désormais la puissance pour lancer un missile à partir de sa résidence directement dans le cul d'un chameau en Afghanistan !

Experience: 5 Months
Runs cool
overclocks well
Intel's Performance Tuning Protection Plan
Excellent processor compares favorably with the I5-3570K

Experience: 5 Months
-EASILY overclocks
Price, pretty expensie for older tech
Bought for a customer who wanted a editing computer with OC capabality, didnt go with ivy at teh time due to overheating chip issues reported. Ran great and fast Oced to 4.4 with a little vcore bump and ran stable with decent temps, maxing out at 56 degrees.

Experience: 2 Years
Great Price/Performance
Low power requirements
The definite mainstay of the Sandy Bridge line. It hits a great price point. I have used it stock and experienced no issues.

I would like to see the price dropped as it is already a generation behind, but that is something that NCIX doesn't have much power over

Fast, very overclockable
Definitely one of the best CPU's out there. Runs stable at 4.4 GHz. Temperature is usually around 30-40 degrees Celsius on idle with an aftermarket cooler. Overall a great product.

Experience: 16 Months
very good performence
cpu heatsink is weak
fast and good performence with overlock funtion. Need a better cpu heatsink if used to play games.

Experience: 1 Years
- Fast
- Highly 'overclockable'
- Good temps
- No cons
A great CPU for gaming. Can be overclocked to amazing speeds with decent aftermarket coolers. I have it overclocked to 4.5GHz with the Corsair H60 liquid cooler and get pretty good temperatures.

Experience: 1 Years
Perfect for overclocking
Consider getting a aftermarket cooler so you can overclock it.

Experience: 4 Weeks
very fast for the price
stock heatsink is bad
This CPU is fast. It works. The stock cooler is an old design, and I wish Intel would drop  it's push-pin design. However, cooler is quiet.

Experience: 6 Months

Best bang for buck gaming processor
This processor is really the cream of the crop. Amazing out of box speeds, incredible overclocking potential with after market fans. The retail heatsink is basic, but good for non overclocking.

My first one was able to hit 4.5 stable easily. The second one I have at stock speeds and still handles games easily, and the third I just bought hit 4.2 with no troubles on a cheaper motherboard. A+ from Intel.

Comment: As you may have guessed by now, the Sandy Bridge launch is a massive undertaking which bridges the mobile and desktop markets at the same time.
