Reviews

from completed build My first build

This CPU is excellent and will last for quite some time as I found. The CPU is very fast for everyday tasks but not so much in some productivity programs. But still, on a budget this CPU is a awesome choice.

from completed build Mystique PC Upgrade

One of the best Core i5 to get without overclocking. Quad-core, very snappy. Windows and games have never been faster.

from completed build Blue Angel (First Build)

Beautifully efficient processor. The only reason I don't give it five stars is due to no overclocking potential.

from completed build My First Gaming Built

This CPU is enough for my gaming needs with its quad core. I can multitask easily and for the price, this is definitely worth it.

from completed build BIO DIGITAL JAZZ

Excellent chip - turbos to 3.7GHz without too much heat in a tiny system with limited cooling, and makes for a great little system coupled with a decent GPU - didn't need that i7 after all...

This processor destroyed everything I threw at it.

from completed build First ever build

Great little chip I must say. Runs at 3.3ghz and can be boosted to 3.7. The stock fan was all I needed for it since it isn't an overclockable cpu. If you aren't really into overclocking this is a great choice to go with for the price.

from completed build Core i5 and HIS 7950 build

This CPU was the cheapest quad core I could find on the LGA 1150 platform. It works fine for gaming and general use.

from completed build Ethereal Dragon

Good for Gaming, excellent for a Gaming and Everyday usage, no need overclock for that :)

from completed build Frostbite - MicroATX

Very happy with this processor. Two thumbs up.
