Intel's Underrated CPU

KYLE V., Newegg
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: The other reviews make this CPU sound like a celeron! seriously it can handle a lot more that what the other reviews are saying. I use my i3 for heavy internet surfing, light CAD programs, and Microsoft office applications, which I typically do all at the same time. There is no doubt in my mind that this CPU could do moderate video editing and gaming, (however I haven't tested video editing or gaming so don't quote me on that) I know I will eventually upgrade to the i7...
  • Pros: -Runs really cool on zalman 92mm heatsink
  • Cons: -It's not unlocked (no overclocking)

good value on a fast i3

  • Summary: I destroyed a motherboard and processor while I was experimenting. This i3 was the best value on a fast hyper-threaded Intel dual core to replace the old one.

Worked as advertised.

Justin John, Amazon
25 February 2014
  • Summary: Used this to build a budget rig for a friend and it worked as it should have. When is Intel going to change the CPU fan design? Absolutely hate that part of the build. If they go on right the first time, they work, if not, they can be the biggest pita ever. Love prime, good price point, hate pinning on CPU fan. Would and will buy again.

Virtualization on the Cheap!

Dane W., Newegg
18 February 2014
  • Summary: Paired with a motherboard with a Broadcom NIC (ASUS P8H61-I R2.0) that supports Windows Server 2012 R2 and using the single PCIe slot for a SAS HBA Card going to an external JBOD. This is more than strong enough for a demo, and could hold a dozen VMs under light load.
  • Pros: One of the cheapest Virtualization-ready processors out there.
  • Cons: none
