zippy quad-core unit at a decent price point

Summary: Pretty zippy quad-core unit at a decent price point. More than adequate for a mid-level system build, and suitable for any modern system. Sure, it's not the top-of-the-line, but it is the previous 'flagship' chip, and more than adequate, as stated. Good power, cache, and heat parameters, and fast speed capacity.
Excellent CPU for gaming and workstation on a budget
30 October 2013
Summary: Excellent CPU for gaming and workstation on a budget. Easy over-clocking with the right motherboard. I am using a Gigabyte GA 770T UD3P, MOSSFETT cooler, and a closed loop H50 Cooler. Running it stable at 4.025 GHz on 1.47V, 2.7GHz North Bridge, and ram (XMS3) running at DDR3-1532 on 6-7-6-20 timings. 56C at full load. Chews up Crysis and Solid Works for a $100.00, is value. It's not as good as a Lynnfield i7 but it is half the price and very close.
Summary: Bought on May 11th, 2012. TODAY, September 04th 2013 the cooler just got broken... 1year regular use... no overclock... no extreme temperatures... no voltage issue.... nothing... Besides that, seems to be a good processor for actual games.
