  • Summary: Got this from an Intel fanboy who convinced me that buying his old Intel i3 that is 2 generations outdated was better than buying a new AMD vishera 6-core. Not exactly the case. Doesn't overheat, and it cost me 50 bucks, but I would've rather payed $150 for the AMD and an aftermarket cooler to keep...
  • Pros: Brought new life to my PC, switching from a core 2 duo with 3 gigs of DDR2 (800 MHz) to an i3 and 4 gigs of DDR3 (1333). Much better, but I could've gone a different route.
  • Cons: Outdated. Prime during its own time, but is now old.

Get the Newer Version If You Can

  • Summary: Good processor but it's been replaced by a couple of newer models both of which are more powerful and more efficient, too. Choose either the Core i3-3240 or Core i3-4130 at the same price as this older i3-2120. Of course, you must check which processor your motherboard will accept before ordering!

Does More than you Imagine.

SirStinky, Amazon
28 June 2014
  • Summary: I bought one of these for a budget business-class desktop. I've heard great things about the i3 line in Sandy Bridge and the price was right. This is a dual core processor built on Intel's 2nd gen Sandy Bridge architecture, which uses a 32nm process.

Exactly what I was looking for

Bob, Amazon
5 May 2014
  • Summary: The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 was the cooler. The cooler it comes with is somewhat anemic. It seemed to be the bare minimum cooling capacity to keep the processor functional. It will be in a high heat environment and I want to get the longest life out of my rig.

Good Value, and Fine For Everyday Tasks

BluegrassPicker, Amazon
26 April 2014
  • Summary: Although I would have preferred the i5-2500K that I have used in the past, the price for that CPU has skyrocketed, but since the motherboard I had on hand requires a second-generation CPU, this I3-2120 seemed like a reasonable choice.

Perfectly Adequate i3 2120

Steve S., Newegg
16 March 2014
  • Summary: Make sure to turn off the integrated video in your bios right away if you have a discrete video card. Replace the stock heatsink as soon as possible.
  • Pros: Ran this processor for over a year until I was able to replace it with an Ivy Bridge quad-core. It ran all of my applications and games perfectly adequately. 1920x1080 video decoded perfectly using software decoding, games ran smooth. It has been handed down into new computers twice now and conti...
  • Cons: Weak integrated video. Intel's stock coolers are a joke. A LOT of force had to be exerted to clamp down the processor in it's socket.
