Summary: I cant say enough good things about this. The last time I purchased a celeron was back when I was building 400mhz computers. They rocked back then, but since technology has evolved I just assumed they would be a little anemic. WOW, was i wrong! This was paired with a BIOSTAR H61MGC LGA 1155 motherboard. I built this to do some handbrake, video watching, email, youtube etc. This processor does the job!
