A processor that delivers, at a reasonable price. Intel i3-3225 3.3Ghz.

Summary: Build my own computer and after looking around to see what was available to fill my needs and purchased with ASUS P8Z77 motherboard, I definitely made the right choices on both. Having owned a similar computer with the same processor it was an easy choice for me.
Summary: Bought this processor in February 2013 and couldn't be happier with it and its performance. My previous processor was an Athlon 64 X2 3800+ and that did the job for a while but it soon showed itself to be too outdated and upgrading would have cost more than it was worth it.
Summary: I have purchased 20+ Intel CPU's over the last 4 years and they are all exceptional without problems. I wish all electronic products were this reliable and error free. This i3 was used in an HTPC and was perfect for the application.
Summary: You can't compare apples to oranges, even though I'm going to. This CPU simply isn't as powerful as a former quad-core I had. But that's to be expected, this is a dual-core. Other than that, very stable.
