Summary: Purchased for some systems that only require low CPU usage. All in all, it runs quite cool with the stock heat sink. It doesn't require anything fancy anyway. It's got some power to it when needed. The on chip graphics are nothing to slouch at even though there are other better options. All in all, a great option for a low power processor.
Pros: Great performance for the price. Excellent option for a low power system.
Summary: If your looking to build a cheap gaming computer then go ahead and buy this i3. For the money it might seem cheaper to get an AMD processor of the same caliber but overall i would say this is one of the most overclockable C.P.U's on the market for the money
