Summary: really nice cpu, i have a single core before this and omg the difference is astounding, its quiet and i dont even have a fan in my case lol ( its open case :/) no problems so far, its a beauty
Summary: I bought this chip for an HTPC that I built. This chip was perfect for that build. It stays SO cool that my fan's don't even come on. I wish they didn't stop making these, because I would use it again.
Solid performance, low thermal output, lower power consumption

Summary: This sits in my HTPC, and doesn't break the bank. I can run the device without worrying about the power bills eating me out of house and home. Performance is solid, but absolutely not in the class of my Core i7 desktop (as you would expect).
Summary: Pros 1. Idle temps - Temps really low 24-30c, Haven't tested max[last I saw was around 48c], handles all media easy. And forgot to mention my room is actually very warm, and summertime is the WORSE. Thats why I like this build. Less heat output, all my devices dont produce much.
Summary: This low power (45W) 4-core processor is the best option for a HTPC. Does not require active cooling 95% of the time. The CPU fan (120mm) is stopped most of the time (speedfan 4.41 controled) and only use case fans for cooling.
