Hyperthreading and 7.1 on WEI (Careful With the Cooler's Push-Pins...)

Summary: Pros: - Extremely fast dual core CPU - Includes hyper-threading - 7.1 out of 7.9 on WEI - Stock Intel cooler is fairly quiet Cons: - No turbo-boost - Stock Intel cooler has somewhat troublesome plastic push-pin mechanisms that hold the cooler to the motherboard.
Summary: i am impressed with this proccesor. its very fast, despite dual core. i can run 20 programs with no problem. there isnt much to say, cause i have nothing to complain about. you cant beat the price. intel is the way to go!
Summary: The Intel Sandy Bridge line of processors is simply amazing. I have not a single complaint about them. The i3 is ideal for those who are simply doing web surfing and basic word processing. There are some older games that would likely run fine on this processor also.
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.
Summary: this completely mega rammed my drives. it has tons of bandwidth and it gigaflopped my boards! on the down side it did ZIF my board too. But thats ok, all the megapixels and the "you es bee" support more than make up for it. On thing to note....THIS DOES NOT FIT THE XBOX FACTOR FORMS!!!
