Make Mine a 4.2G

Excellent chip and works well with a ICE Water Cooler, managed to get this little baby up to 4.2Ghz without breaking a sweat.

Will post the clocking specs on the forums. Using a ASUS P6X58D-E board with 6Gb Patriot Viper 2 1600 (PV736G1600LLK). All these components are checked to work with each other under the ASUS mobo memory test and the Board will pick up the XMP profile from the memory.

Good thing is that they can all be bought in one place.... HERE on the Overclockers site.

Sick CPU

Overclocks like a dream. At 4.2GHz ~1.24V mine achieves 57GFlops according to intel burn test, in combo with a P6X58D-E and megahalems + apache.

Phil 2010-09-15

Fantastic Product

Incredibly overclockable, superb power, just a brilliant cpu.

Mr Chris 2010-09-07

Awesome processor

This CPU handles everything i throw at it, from games to video encoding and compiling lots of code. Had this to replace my 920 and its more than a worthy replacement. Runs at a reasonable temp at full load. I can't fault this at all. Windows 7 64bit flies with this baby.

Thurstan Johnston 2010-09-06

Simply awesome

Had this running for a few days now and I've noticed a BIG speed improvement over my older Core 2 Duo E8400. The Turbo function is brilliant as it ups the CPU's multiplier up a notch, so when under load the CPU actually runs at 3Ghz. Very, very impressed, though, was a bit worried about this RAM voltage business for this 1366 platform, but all worked upon first bootup with 1.50 V going to the system memory. Can't recommend this CPU enough!! Not tried OCing yet, but I've seen some incredible results on the net with 4Ghz + easily being reached. One thing I would mention is that even on standard clocks these beauties get very hot under FULL stress using the box standard cooler, so I've dropped the voltage to 1.05V and it's VERY stable using Intel Burn in Test, using a Gelid cooler with AC MX3, MAX temps of 44 degress C @ 2.8Ghz, previous standard volts were 1.23, so goes to show what my chip could potentially do when OC'd. Buy any of the Core i7's there incredible!!!!

Just placed an order for one of these little beauties :). Read many reviews and heard so much about it that I decided to go with the Intel route, though, being more expensive than AMD alternative I wanted a more future proof computer. Really can't wait to receive it as it's the last part I need to be up and running. Btw I've heard these are more overclockable than the 920. Can't wait to have my NEW PC running tomorrow ;).

KevC 2010-08-25

pleased with my purchase

great purchase, read alot about these processors before i bort, was more than pleased with how it performs :-)

it 2010-08-23

Well quick

Previous processor to this was a core 2duo which i was good untill it died. Orderd this along with a new board and ram. And wow
has to be a huge jump in performance. Excellent processor and great price at

Ian 2010-08-19

Best buy

This is a brilliant cpu really stable with a could board. Got mine running at 4Ghz, had it at 4.2 but the H50 was not keeping temps low. Soon getting watercooling for cpu then the system will be beast

Sean 2010-08-01

Outstanding CPU

Using it for HD video Editing and Special FX with a GTX 480.
The whole system totally flies
Watercooled and running @4.02 Ghz
Temps are low, encoding is seriously fast
Belting out the scores in Folding home
Yes it certainly does play Crysis on Maximum settings no worries.
Excellent buy
Fantastic Workhorse
really pleased with this, blows my old Q6600 away.

jon siddall 2010-07-29

Great CPU

Running mine at 3.6ghz, though I have used it at 4.2ghz without too much issue (runs a bit hot for my liking at that speed though)

3.6ghz at 1.120vcore is fine for me

Petros Constantopoulos 2010-05-18

Its ok

Nothing super special from the 920 D0.
This is a D0 stepping too.
The only good thing is the +1 multiplier you get so you can run higher speed with lower qpi link.
Rest is the same as the good old 920.
But since it is 2010 i went for something newer ;)


Stephanos 2010-04-07

Great CPU

Just got this in my new rig after holding out from the i7 920 and i am very glad i did. This chip is exactly the same except 1 more multiplier and higher stock clock.

Running smoothly at 3.8ghz and i plan to push it to 4.2 over the weakend.

For the price its a great buy, you wont regret it.

Oli 2010-03-31

i7 are a new class

This is my first i7 (waited rather than get the 920). It's superb - worked 1st time without fault, powerful and future-proof. Also stable for Overclocks. Excelent product, i7's are the new top dog!

Howitzer 2010-03-15


What an excellent CPU. New home build machine, 6 GB's Crucial memory on a Asus PX658D Premium mobo.

All worked first time, supperb, cool, fast, everything I'd been waiting for.

Snufflegrunt 2010-03-09

this is just a 920 refresh

fantastic cpu my first i7 which i held back from the 920 for the updated version! Obviously this is not an upgrade from the i7 as you will know! just a refresh with nominal changes! i7 is king! ps. only an idiot would buy this to replace a 920 lol!

jack 2010-03-08

Not Impressed

got one of these to replace my i7 920 but so far not seen much improvement should of kept my i7 920 just as good even oveclocks the same. Its ok if you dont have the i7 920 already.
