Reviews Word on the street for the Intel Core i5 760


10.0
It's therefore a quad-core chip based on Intel's 45nm Nehalem processor architecture.

9.0
As a result it's stuck running at its 2.8 GHz speed.

Overall

9.6 Out of 10

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Socket Type

First of all it overclocks realy easy... With a stock cooler I could clock it @3.4GHz... But when I hit a 80% load, it failed.
by Jirne (Jul, 2012)
Currently it's installed in a EVGA 120-LF-E650 P55 motherboard.
by scaccima (Oct, 2012)
It's also disappointing to find the new 760 does not appear to offer any additional overclocking headroom.
by Tech Radar (Sep, 2010)

Socket

Six cores for a similar £150 or so price tag is awfully hard to resist.
by Tech Radar (Sep, 2010)

Price

It's cheaper than many of Intel's latest dual-core processors and hammers them for all round performance.
by Tech Radar (Sep, 2010)

Threads

No HyperThreading is a bit of a bummer.
by Tech Radar (Sep, 2010)

Overclocking

The BIOS is the most basic available, without any ability to overclock the CPU.
