Summary: I bought this for my first rig that I was building with my dad. Paired with an NVIDIA Geforce GTX 650 1 GB GDDR5, I was pleasantly surprised when I did my first fps check in Minecraft on one of the slowest servers in the game. I was running at a solid 100 fps. On other servers and in singleplayer, I was getting 200 or more at times. I am able to record at 75 fps and above.
Summary: Replaced an Athlon II x4 in my computer that overheated when the fan failed. Pretty much pulled the old chip and dropped this one in. Don't really do much more than stream music and social media on the computer and haven't noticed any real difference in performance. The heat sink fan is much quieter than the stock one for the x4 was.
