Very good but still expensive (need to come down to $30 or lower)
4 May 2014
Summary: My sister's motherboard (MB) got burned out and I replaced with a new MB. Her CPU is this one and running at 2.4 GHz, it still scores 7.1 on WEI (tried to overclock to 2.7 GHz for couple hours, got WEI=7.3).
Summary: I got lucky and got mine for a good price, but you likely won't be getting it for the same price. ($60, shipped) For what these are, they cost too much money, and you get twice as much power for your money with an AMD processor, unless, like me, you demand a hackintosh, and then you usually have to...
Pros: It is still running with almost daily use. I still play demanding games (starcraft 2, diablo 3, crysis 2.) The only thing I can tell is that it bottle necks my gpu (GTX 560 TI.) If I can be happy with a cpu thats 5 years old, you know intel is doing something right.
Cons: At the time the cpu was a good high end medium gaming cpu. Now that my whole computer is aging I bought a new GPU in July 2011, and have come to realize that the cpu is a little dated for the gpu. That is its only flaw.
