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.

Awesome little proc for the $$

Dennis Hall "Wabashky", Amazon

  • Summary: Built some econo boxes a few months ago and used these and they worked perfectly. They have lots of bang for the buck and can be a placeholder for an upgrade later easily too. THanks Amazon for the fast shipping as well.

Super Fast, Super Green & Inexpensive. AAA+++

Ron K. Smythe "Ron K. Smythe", Amazon
29 October 2012
  • Summary: My whole desktop, with the i3-2120 CPU, Sandisk Ultra SSD drive and Gigabyte HD 6670 video card, running Microsoft Flight Simulator X, graphics on highest setting, with 50-100 FPS, draws only 60 watts. My LCD monitor, draws 65 watts, for Pete's sake. The only downside is the crappy cooling fan.

Works as it should

  • Summary: The CPU works as it should, is fast enough for the SFF HTPC it was built into. No problems, stock cooler is sufficient for low end use.

Best < $120 processor on the market

AD, Amazon
30 April 2012
  • Summary: This CPU is a work horse, and at the small price of $115 it's one of the best CPUs on the market. With 4 threads (to physical cores w/ hyper-threading) and a clock speed of 3.3Ghz this CPU will give you solid performance for most everyday tasks.

Not sexy... but great CPU

AngryAsianMan, Amazon
28 September 2011
  • Summary: Not sexy like a Core i5 or i7, but 3.3 GHz, runs fast and cool..... be nice if it came with a higher HD graphics chipset and the ability to use more shared RAM, but gets the job done. Since Turbo Boost is not possible, the standard fan/heatsink is more than sufficient.

Good basic processor

jdmUNC, Amazon
28 September 2011
  • Summary: This is a good 2nd generation Core I series (Sandy Bridge) processor. It is one of the lower end versions, but is still a noticeable boost in performance over older Core 2 processors. Installed this processor on a new media center/htpc build and it is working flawlessly.

Perfect for a HTPC

Brent, Amazon
28 September 2011
  • Summary: I recently built a HTPC and when I was looking for a CPU I was looking for something with power, but was also quiet. I have this in a small HTPC with a SSD and Intel Motherboard. It works like a charm and because it runs so cool it never gets to hot in the small area its in.

  • Summary: Got two of these babies to build 2 pcs for a friend and my younger brother; you've already read about the performance of this sandy bridge processor, so what else to say about it right?
