Summary: Unfortunately I bought this with a BIOSTAR H61MGC LGA 1155 Intel H61 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard and 2 Corsair XMS3 4 GB 1333MHz PC3-10666 240-pin DDR3 Memory. Assembled it with a power supply and got nothing, no tones on the motherboard, no display.
Summary: This is a basic 1155 processor. I was not expecting much out of this processor for a 10.8.2 Hack server and was not disappointed. Not much power for advanced features but supports file, web, ftp and media just fine. Would not recommend for a desktop setup.
The Ivy Bridge processors are better if your motherboard supports them

Summary: I ordered this processor used. It works ok, but wasn't packaged very well during shipping. The used one didn't included a CPU fan, but I knew that when I ordered it. This is a 65w Sandy Bridge processor built on a 32nm die.
Summary: Facile d'usage, de montage, aucun problème avant, pendant et après ! Pour le prix, il est très bien ! Mais ne lui en demandez pas trop ! Pour certain jeu (The Witchers 2, par exemple), logiciel, il galère un peu-BEAUCOUP !
