core i7 920 is a great processor, I have mine overclocked to 3.8ghz on thermaltake spin-q fan!!! core i7 920 is great cause you can make it more powerful than intels core i7 extreme chip sets. when you increase the core i7 920 ghz, you increase the qpi transfere speed as well. core i7 is only suppose to handle upto 6.4gt, my cpu at 3.8ghz its qpi speed is at 6.8gt. temps are very good(core i7 920 defult is 4.8gt). triple channel ddr3 memory is fast as hell, so be prepared to be blown away at how fast your programs load compared to ddr2 dual channel. it may be on the pricey side, but the best part is intel is planning to release a octo core cpu sometime in the future with 8 cores, and 16 threads with hyperthreading. it will be compatabile with the 1366 socket which is the core i7. so your pretty much set for a logn time if you get the core i7 920. (the octo core info was from maximumpc magazine at the end of the phenonm II review and comparing it to all the current cpus)
