    from completed build LAN Schleppzock

    Got it for 90 Eur on Ebay - does a great job in the small PC. Currently there is no need for more performance for my LAN rig!

    from completed build HR1 Home Recording PC (Mini-ITX)

    The 4460 has so far handled everything well, including some very light gaming without a GPU (20-30 fps on Heroes & Generals, nothing great). What I love most about this processor is that it runs cool. Even under load with my audio software (Reaper), I've never seen temps go above 45'C, and idle temps are a chilly 28-30'C on average. High temps are something we all want to avoid, but it's especially important in a home studio build where you don't want your fans ramping up and increasing noise levels. You could spend another $10-$15 for the extra 0.1 GHz gain of the i5-4590 if you wanted, but the tiny difference in performance would not be worth it in my opinion.

    from completed build Light gaming ITX build

    I'm quite pleased with the Intel 4460, working on it (CAD programs) is perfect, also light gaming. It wasn't a bad choice, had a good enough price/performence ratio.

    from completed build Red Stripe (First Build)

    It seems to work just fine - as a non-gamer, I was not interested in anything more spectacular, and it fitted my budget. The stock cooler seems very quiet and efficient - although I am comparing it with our old PC which sounded like the air-conditioning in a car being put on full blast.

    from completed build The Black Box

    Didn't plan on overclocking and i'm not into extreme editing so this was a clear and cost effective choice.

    from completed build A Clockwork Orange

    I was going to build a fairly cheap basic build based on the AMD FX-6350 but eventually decided on the Intel as i have the possibility to upgrade to an I7-4790K in the future. For the work I do this seems to be quick enough.

    I needed i5 for the games I wanted to play, so I choose this. The main reason I picked the i5-4460 is because of the 0.2 GHz over the i5-4430 for just $10 more.

    from completed build Ace - my first build ever.

    Serves me well.

    from completed build Tears

    Its only downside is that it struggles in cpu intensive open world games. The only game I play that's like that is black desert and I BARELY play it so this isn't anything crazy.

    Good quad core CPU.
