The Intel i5-760 is easily the winner when it comes to performance for value. A quad core processor with a great base clock and amazing overclocking ability, the 760 offers great value for the 1156 socket.

When deciding which processor to go with for my new rig, I was torn between the i5-760 and the i7-870. I had already settled on the 1156 socket, with the P55 chipset. I didn't need the top-of-the-line performance with the 1366 socket and X55 chipset, and the i7-9xx processors were both too expensive and too hot for my taste. The i5-760 and the i7-870 are basically identical, with the main difference between the two being that the i7-870 has Intel's Hyperthreading technology enabled, which simulates two virtual cores on each actual physical core.

Ultimately, that's what made the decision for me. Hyperthreading can, theoretically, double performance. However, currently, in real world situations, performance gains are typically only seen by programs designed to take advantage of hyperthreading, like video editing and encoding software. For non-multi-threaded applications, including virtually all games, a hyperthreaded processor can actually even perform worse than a comparable non-hyperthreaded processor (like the 870 vs. the 760), due to "collisions" as the processor attempts to optimize processes, and in general can also run hotter.

So I went with the 760, saved a few bucks over the 870, and never looked back. It runs nice and cool, idling at 30C and maxing out at 51C under Prime95 load, with almost no noticeable ramp up in the fan rpms.

Works fantastic. No hiccups. Only problem I had was the thermal paste on the stock cooler was terrible. It didn't make any contact so it would shut down since it got hot at 98C. I bought some Artic Silver to apply to it. and it has run at 40C ish ever since.

Amazing value if you don't need Hyper-Threading. Great gaming CPU! I would recommend the i5-2500k at this point, but I've been very happy with the i5-760. Mine is at 3.7GHz and has been running 24/7 since October. My temps are 28C idle and 50C full load after hours of prime95. I've had the 760 stable at 4.2GHz, but that was overkill for my needs. Rips anything I throw at it. I wanted to see if I could slow this CPU down and I couldn't. I tried multiple browsers with 50+ tabs each, iTunes playing, file backups to a NAS and a Photoshop batch process all while playing COD Black Ops and this CPU didn't care. Even with prime95 running all cores at 100% I can still listen to music and surf the web without any lag. Pretty amazing. This CPU and the 1156 socket are old news, but I'm very happy with it. The new i5s are faster and almost the same price so they're a better buy.

I was not sure how much improvement I would get from my Core 2 Duo to this Core i5 , but since my desktop PC was something like 3 years old I went ahead and upgraded it. This CPU is on a Gigabyte ATX Motherboard GA-P55A-UD3 (LGA1156 4DDR3-2200 CrossFireX/GBE/Raid/SATA3/USB3.0/7.1-CH ), I am impressed and I certainly think the combination of this CPU and the motherboard is real value for money.

i have this processor since october 2010, and i couldn't be happier with it, this processor paired with my gtx 460 wich i bought the same day and its just fenomenal for gaming, now im gonna buy a GTX 580 and i know that this cpu will not bottleneck the gpu since the i5 760 is more than enough for actual and upcoming games :)

Given its price, this little beast packs a huge punch. This should really appeal to those gamers who want the most of their gaming rigs. I had one of these before upgrading and I recall that I had a really good time. The overclock ability is also pretty high for those thinking about doing. But be warned, always, that you should not do so with the stock fan. Good as it is for those who are willing to use it at its default settings, make sure to get a good quality fan so as not to damage your CPU. I had this running on a Gig Mobo and it did a phenomenal job. At the end I got it at a cool 3.6GHZ and it was great at playing my games. Now on to the price, at two hundred it sits at a good position for those who have modest budgets when it comes to building a pc. After all the cpu is one of the big three components when building the pc. This is a great way to go especially if you are just starting out and want to get the best out of you other components!
