Great budget processor

Joseph W., Newegg

  • Pros: Runs all my games very fast, loads everything quick, and i have never had any overheating problems
  • Cons: The fan was the biggest pain to get in to my mobo. Those plastic pins would always bend and i would then have to take out the WHOLE fan to fix the one pin. You would be better off using an aftermarket cooler if you have low patience.

  • Summary: Newegg rock, super fast shipping!
  • Pros: Intel, Hyper-threading, fast and the price is right. Bought this chip for my dad for his rotting 7 year old rig. Now he is screaming and very quiet operation.

  • Summary: If you are building a gaming PC. Wait. Get the extra cash and go for an i7 ivy k. I will be upgrading soon.
  • Pros: It is what it is. Take a look at the specs, you get what you see. Runs cool. Runs fast. My last CPU was a AMD ... 2.8GHz Dualy. I'm happy.
  • Cons: None.

User Review

Quality A., Newegg
26 December 2012
  • Summary: Not OCing or anything of the like. UEFI bios is, but I'm not. Windows 8 x64, eVGA GT640, ASUS Z68, 16GB GSkill DDR3 1333, two SATA 3.0GB/s HDDs.
  • Pros: It works. Nothing much more to say about it.
  • Cons: Running BOINC work units with CPU on full load, I have hit 147*F. Only have one exhaust fan on case. Will install more later and hopefully solve this issue. The heater is on in this room with case at about 2-3 feet off the ground. Probably part of the issue.

A Nice CPU

William B., Newegg
1 May 2012
  • Pros: For a dual core CPU, the Core i3-2100 works exceptionally fast and efficient. For gamers, i wouldn't go any higher than an i5 processor because games these days are really focused on using the recourses of the grahpics card to run the game and while the cpu can make a good difference, it can only...
  • Cons: Not an "ivy bridge"

Very powerful CPU. Best CPU in $120 price range

Trumpet-205, Amazon
14 July 2011
  • Summary: I bought this CPU as a stepping stone for upcoming Ivy Bridge 3570K/3770K. I have to say I am very impressed. Here is what I have to say about it, Pro * Exceptionally fast. When compare against AMD A8 series and FX-41xx series clock to clock this CPU smokes them in computation and multitasking area.

  • Summary: It's great; cheap and workable. Despite this, please opt for the i5-2500k, especially if you're overclocking.
