HASH(0x9fd60aec) out of 5 stars Great price/performance April 11 2010

Processors are pretty much a commodity, what really matters is how much you get for you money. In the i7 line this model currently is in a good spot. Going down one step to a 920 only save $10-20 but going up to a 940 will set you back $250. You can spend $1000 for a top of the line Intel i7 and only see a slight improvement in most Windows applications. The high-end processors are really targeted for servers and not desktops anyway. You can save about $100 and step down to a i5 but you will lose quite a bit of performance. Prices can change from week to week, so be sure and check to see if these numbers are still valid.

The primary difference between the i7 and other processors like the i5, or AMD processors for that matter, is how memory is accessed. The i7 uses triple-channel memory that is accessed directly instead of via external support chips which speeds things up a lot.

Be aware that the latest Intel chips use the LGA1366 socket and the i5 uses LGA1156, so you have a much better upgrade path with the i7 later on. If you build a i7 computer, make sure you chip and motherboard have the same socket!

With any of these processors you really should get a 3rd party heatsink; it will keep you processor cooler making for a more stable and longer living system.

HASH(0x9fd65474) out of 5 stars No need to buy the Intel extreme July 24 2010

With a decent motherboard, this CPU will run comfortably at 3.8GHz with an air cooler, and at 4.2GHz with better cooling. And it will be rock-solid! It eats through my games and converts or encodes audio and video faster than any CPU I have owned so far. I hear it is being phased out like the i7-920 before it, and will be replaced in this price spot by the i7-950. Although buying the LGA1366 platform is expensive, this is what you purchase if you want the best desktop platform available today.

HASH(0x9fd65588) out of 5 stars Intel Core I7 June 12 2010

I built an Adobe CS5 System for one of my customer with limited budget, and the I7-930 did the job.

It is much much smoother than the I7-920 and as good as any of its brother I7-940, and any others later. What I meant is that it's a few hundreds dollars less than the I7-940, and it can do the same job. It's extremely fast with ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 mobo with triple memory channels and with Window 7 64 bits operation system.

The HD Video display is as good as any blue-ray DVD you displayed on your TV with any current video card over $150.00; much of the credit goes to the CPU and it's triple memory channels. I means nothing can't go wrong with Radeon HD 5770 or above.

The fan comes with the I7-930 is so quiet. I can't even tell whether my board is posted.

Unless you have extra dollars to throw away, I would recommend the I7-930 would be perfect to fit your budget and do the extreme jobs you want it to do.

HASH(0x9fd6572c) out of 5 stars Newbies, you can do this! April 22 2010

This was my third of 4th build, but I have not done one for many years and things have changed. I was most concerned about installing the processor incorrectly and damaging either it or the MOBO. However, installation was a cinch and the processor does not disappoint. It is just as fast as can be! This build was replacing a computer that was running on a Xeon processor that is not too old, a tall order, but it is faster than the Xeon, at least the one I had in the older computer. Highly recommend.

HASH(0xa0036be8) out of 5 stars Runs Great! May 29 2010

The i7-930 was purchased for my desktop system. I'm running ubuntu 10-04 with 12gb memory on two monitors. The CPU runs lighting fast with no problems. Re-touching photographs and running other applications make this CPU a complete joy. The price is reasonable for all the benefits you receive.
