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
This thing is a monster ok granted its at stock clocks right now but everything I've thrown at it so far has just been demolished without even breaking a sweat! Destroys any sort of video or audio encoding like I've never seen before. And games are just unreal, they are handled so easily i haven't seen temps over 44c under load (that is cooled by a corsair h80i though) my old asus 6970 is the only thing letting me down now thinking I need a 7950 instead ;)
No real bad points except the price is pretty high considering its such a small chip. You can buy gpu's cheaper than this that are much bigger!
