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.
One of the best Core i5 to get without overclocking. Quad-core, very snappy. Windows and games have never been faster.
Beautifully efficient processor. The only reason I don't give it five stars is due to no overclocking potential.
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.
Solid, does the job!
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.
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.
Absolutely nothing bad to say about this CPU. It will handle most games for the next 3-4 years without issue (with a GPU update in there of course). It never goes above 67C during heavy gaming with multi-tasking. Intel does it again with a great CPU for a reasonable price. I'd highly recommend this i5 to someone interested in gaming who doesn't want to be bothered with overclocking.
This CPU was the cheapest quad core I could find on the LGA 1150 platform. It works fine for gaming and general use.
