Intel 965 processor speed long but work is declinigand on the other hand multitasking is not available NOT GOOD PERFORMER.

Strengths: Not too fast as i wanted. 3.73 GHz but not fully Creative .FSB :1066 Mhz One Should buy Better AMD athlon FX Processor. Because it is only fore the amatures games Not for Me at all!!!!

Weakness: Many. 69+ C while playing far cry and when i added Heatsinks of $229.99 It goes only onto 55+c It can't satisfy anyone in the sky-touching price???

VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY AND Very bad processor. It lags at the cost that goes onto $1056.99 that is really bad.FOR NO ONE. SO don't Buy This One.

Hang on ... we're gonna go real fast now ...

Strengths: BAM! Rockin the house with this 965 processor. (see below)

Weakness: HEAT, HEAT, HEAT as with all high end processors (see below)

Started with the D830 on the Intel D955XBX MB. kick butt throughput. Okay, next level. Toss in the 965 w/HT enabled ... shazam! almost a 45% throughput increase and a reduction in power consumption due to the 65nm process.

Pros and Cons of Pentium 965

Strengths: The processor is really cool and fast, would highly recommend this

Weakness: Too over price.... Should be at most $650

Intel and the retailers overprices everything especially this Intel Pentium Extreme Processor 965. If they made it cheaper I would totally love to buy this cool processor and if i remember it correctly, it is the last line of the intel pentium processors.

Strengths: its pretty fast and installation went w/out a hitch. runs pretty stable and i overclocked to 4.05 on a coolermaster centurion.

Weakness: why would anyone buy this with the new core 2 extreme on the market at only $100 more?? i really wish i had waited two extra months and gotten a conroe.

Intel should do a engineer swap with a company like ZALMAN who know how to design heatsinks and fans. As much as this puppy cost you would think they would supply a decent heatsink and fan.

Superior Performance, 965 is the KING

Strengths: Excellent Performance, Low Heat, Excellent OC capabilities if used with i975X M/B

Weakness: Price :(

Super Overclocking. Using Asus P5WD2-E Premium and Overclocked to 4.5Ghz without any issues. Excellent Perormance. Even with Intel Stocked HSF the Temp is 50c avg. Hopefully Intel will cut prices on these Giants.
