Very good chip for the price, slightly outperforming the Ryzen 3 1200. Stays very cool even with its stock cooler idling at 23 degrees, hitting a max of 50 degrees under an AIDA 64 stress test. Scored a 604 cb on a Cinebench run, overall very happy with this purchase. Will do some gaming if I decide to purchase a graphics card.

A great value CPU. Good performance for a cheap price. I use it in my office PC and it works great.

The integrated graphics allows up to 3 monitors. This is a huge pro to me

Really good CPU, the same performance as a quad core i5 6th 7th Generation, capable of running all current games at 1080p. Best in value/performance for sure.

Got this in a bundle deal with the ASRock Z370M Pro4 board for $204.99 on Newegg ($194.99 AR). Does the job for now until I upgrade.

Pretty decent CPU for the price. Nothing too spectacular though. It can run games from about 2-4 years ago fairly well on it's own. It also has built in graphics, so you can surf the web or whatever without needing to buy an expensive graphics card. I had heard that it runs about as well as the previous generation Core i5. This is actually surprisingly accurate. But it still has it's trouble. If you have a little extra money, I would highly recommend at least a Core i5.

Fast processor it destroys games and its four cores make multi tasking a breeze.

This is the first generation of Core i3 with 4 cores & 4 threads CPU with affordable price. I choose Intel because for AMD Ryzen to get best performance, it need higher RAM speed but the price are like rocket.

I love this processor it is good. Even though it might not be the most powerful it is still does it's job. The processor is sturdy enough to play any game you give it. And will leave you with a satisfied smile. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a low/med end processor
