So far, so good!

Pros: I just put this thing together. To those with the i7 920/930/950, no need to upgrade to the i7 2600k.

Here’s some power draw comparisons using a Kill-A-Watt meter:
CPU: i7 950 @4.37 GHz w/HT 1.3875 Vcore from idle to load = 267W
i7 2600K @4.5 GHz w/HT 1.365 Vcore from idle to load = 100W

Here are some easy 24/7 stable overclocks (using Prime95):
4.3GHz (43 x 100Mhz) @ 1.335V BIOS; 1.288V – 1.296V CPU-Z | Prime 95 max temps = 60C
4.4GHz (44 x 100Mhz) @ 1.340V BIOS; 1.296V – 1.304V CPU-Z | Prime 95 max temps = 61C
4.5GHz (45 x 100Mhz) @ 1.365V BIOS; 1.312V – 1.352V CPU-Z | Prime 95 max temps = 66C

Here’s another useful comparison:
i7 950 @ 4.37GHz Cinebench 11.5 = 7.38 points
i7 2600k @ 4.5GHz Cinebench 11.5 = 8.74 points

Cons: Still not as cool as Phenom II CPU’s.

Other Thoughts: You can find more details at OverclockersClub. I’ll be fiddling with it some more later.

Great Processor – Fast, Overclockable, Cheap!

This processor is so much faster than my prior build, a Core i7-920, it’s amazing. This puppy is almost as fast as the fastest $1,000 Gulf Town processor, for 1/3rd the price! It’s performing flawlessly for me so far. I’m still playing with the overclocking, but some of my friends have gotten this chip up to 5.2 Ghz and beyond using just air cooling on the same motherboard I have, the Asus Maximus IV Extreme. I’m still playing around in the high 4s.

The design of the Sandy Bridge CPUs appear flawless. I’m just bummed that they wasted all those transistors on a useless (for many of us), mediocre video processor.

The “Cougar Point” P67/H67 Chipset problem is easily avoided. Just don’t use the Intel SATA II ports on your Motherboard! No big deal if you have a good quality Motherboard with ample SATA III and non-Intel SATA II ports. How many people have more than 4 Optical and HDDs in their system anyway? The fellow who blamed the problem on the Sandy Bridge CPUs is entirely off base and unjustified… Read More @ Amzon
