Reviews

from completed build i7s-gtx980-modest

Pros: Low-wattage, 4-core, HT, cheaper than base or K versions, excellent quality/performance. Cons: Underclocked and locked, which is the price for the low power usage.

I still rate 5/5 because it is intended for the low-power niche and meets those expectations. Consider the more expensive K version for overclocking.
