amazon doesn't even say what socket type it is


3 years ago.

I can only suggest checking the socket type "before" you order it. XD Replaced an old I7 920 with this after hearing it is a low-end gaming CPU. Once clocked at 4 GHz it sprang to life. Mine cost £37 ($50) so a lot of bang for only a few bucks. It's socket LGA1366, 6 cores, 12 threads, and a 12MB cache

 Frequently Asked Questions

 Best User Rated

Why does UserBenchmark have a bad reputation on reddit?
Marketers operate thousands of reddit accounts. Our benchmarks expose their spiel so they attack our reputation.
Why don’t PC brands endorse UserBenchmark?
Brands make boatloads on flagships like the 4090 and 14900KS. We help users get similar real-world performance for less money.
Why don’t youtubers promote UserBenchmark?
We don't pay youtubers, so they don't praise us. Moreover, our data obstructs youtubers who promote overpriced or inferior products.
Why does UserBenchmark have negative trustpilot reviews?
The 200+ trustpilot reviews are mostly written by virgin marketing accounts. Real users don't give a monkey's about big brands.
Why is UserBenchmark popular with users?
Instead of pursuing brands for sponsorship, we've spent 13 years publishing real-world data for users.
