What customers say about "Details"
Intel Core i7-870 CPU Processor
  • It's a good buy so if you have an LGA 1156 socket don't think twice.
  • If you are still on an LGA 1156 then look no further, this is a great processor for your motherboard!
  • This is the 2nd most powerful I7 processor you can get for the LGA1156 socket.
  • I really like this type of socket it's easy to install.
  • There is very little choice of alternative cooling for LGA1156.
Intel Xeon X3470 CPU Processor
  • Upgraded from an i3-550. Easy to install.
  • Great product and price. Easy installation.
  • Excellent upgrade for any LGA1156 system.
  • I ordered this CPU to replace the Core i5-650 in my Dell OptiPlex 980 DT. Easy.
  • Upgraded to the (used) Xeon X3470 on my old MSI P55 Cd53 motherboard. Installation was easy.
