    "If you're looking to build a gaming computer, don't buy a socket 775. Right now, if you're looking to buy a new intel board, make sure you pick up an 1151."

    "The product does a good job on keeping my computer cool. When I run the diagnostics for heat it's always low almost like the comp isn't even running the 5 CPU intensive applications I am using. Not once has my computer reached a temp anywhere near overheating after I installed this! BTW Installation was very easy and the price point is on par."

    "This socket works really well for gaming -- I don't know a lot about it, but my sister is a hardcode gamer and she said she recommends this highly. I'm not sure what it does, but it works well!"
