Excellent CPU, very fast, sufficient to max out any game on the market at the moment. The chip I received overclocks VERY well, I have managed to get 5.0ghz out of it at 1.448v and 4.8ghz at 1.324v after delidding on an Asus P8Z68-V/GEN3 motherboard.
Superb performance, running with a gigabyte board and 16gb of memory. Not cheap but you get what you pay for. Originally looking to spend less on a processor but decided that would be a false economy as this i7 will last me longer.
I would say this has been fast and reliable, to be honest for day to day use its not much different to the i7 2600. You shave a few seconds of intense Photoshop and auto cad work but nothing to brag about. Overall. I would say it's fast not quite worth the money and if you ha e a 2600k don't bother wasting the money for an upgrade
