  • Summary: Got this from an Intel fanboy who convinced me that buying his old Intel i3 that is 2 generations outdated was better than buying a new AMD vishera 6-core.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  • Cons: Outdated.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.

Exactly what I was looking for

  • 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.

All the essentials.

  • Summary: FOr mom's web browser or a business computer, you could do *much* worse than this little guy. If you're not looking for high-end powerhouse, this guy will be moderately future-proof. If you can afford it, consider spending a little extra for a third-generation or better.
  • Pros: Excellent power consumption. Decent multitasking capability. Acceptable graphics for basic gaming.
  • Cons: Second-generation cannot use modern busses such as PCIe 3.0 to the best of their capabilities. Power consumption and speed atre not as good as a more modern device. HD Graphics 2000 leaves much to be desired with video performance beyond basic use.

  • Pros: Very fast CPU for the price tag, there's not much more than I can say but that it works and that's it's fast.
  • Cons: The heat sink is faulty that came with it, so i need to buy a after market heat sink ( not that I wanted to )

Heat sink broke

  • Summary: Can anyone help me with what heat sink to buy to replace the one that comes with this processor?
  • Pros: worked great until it received physical damage
  • Cons: pegs are fragile but that's probably general to most processors.

Excellent processor.

  • Pros: I am running this with WinXP Pro, Intel H61 board, 250 gig HD, and 4 gigs of ram and it just screams. Super fast performance. Even the integrated video is pretty good. Multitasking, burning CDs, downloading content, streaming video and burning DVDs. It chews through all of it.
  • Cons: The prices on these chips have dropped significantly in the last few months, but these i3's are still expensive.

its okay..

  • Summary: not my choice
  • Pros: Its affordable, if your looking for a standard cpu for just every day home use its a decent option.
  • Cons: looking at the amd A10-5800K for the same price i would go with it. its overclock able. i honestly cant see a good use for this. (other than a budget hackintosh). and dont even bother with an after market heat sink or water cooling system. you wont be able to take advantage of it
