Windows 7: The Sandy Bridge Review: The New Intel CPUs

Do my eyes deceive me, or have they actually modified the traditional 4 pin heatsink mount?

As I understand it, the traditional 4 pin mount was a joint venture between the Marquis de Sade and Alfred E. Newman. Hard to believe that Intel would give up on such a genius piece of engineering.

My eyes must be deceiving me because I don't see, or get what you're talking about?

Well it's like most hardware at the moment - If you have something like an i7 930, then this isn't really worth upgrading too. It's most likely for people on Core 2 stuff still. I'm not sure when I'm going to do a CPU upgrade. All I'd need is a motherboard and CPU as I'm already using DDR3 RAM with my 790i, but

Good call, even when I get the thing properly mounted I still have doubts if it's going to stay

Here's a review from a UK mag and some UK prices. Don't look bad but you would have to get a new mobo.

The fan looks nice, but the CPU doesn't. My mega machine probably going to need to lay down plastic on a dual 6-core Xeon with HT (3.3/3.5 gigs) and 14+ gigs of ram Soon, hopefully soon !

The price is very good , but I think the inbuilt DRM will put a few people off

The price is ok, but having to replace the Motherboard if you wanted one seems a bit much.

Does anyone have a decent understanding as to how intrusive the DRM is going to be? What won't I be able to do?

I've heard complaints about DRM for the last 4 or 5 years and it hasn't affected me yet.

Didn't I read that certain upper end models of Sandy Bridge will not have the DRM component?
