    Great single-core performance for work. Got it for the price of the i3-6100 so I can't complain!

    Does what I want it to do, fairly fast, makes me happy, doesn't run particularly hot.

    I love this CPU, unless I'm playing a game that puts the graphics chip to work, the CPU, even during a stress test, never exceeded 60 degrees.
