Summary: This Core i3 processor has respectable performance. It's better than many of AMD"s offerings - even those with many more cores. Power usage is quite low on this processor, which is part of why I purchased it.
Summary: Installed this in a media center box that's on 24/7. The entire Computer only uses 55w of power at max load. The integrated video is plenty to watch 1080p recorded tv. Would recommend to anyone who is looking to build a low power media PC.
Summary: Bought this processor to power my media center PC which is connected to an HDTV and runs Windows Media Center and connects to a network TV tuning device. It runs it flawlessly after fiddling around with the Intel integrated graphics settings a bit to get everything all properly set up.
Summary: I bought this to build a PC based DVR system. I am using the following parts to get these results: (1) Western Digital AV-GP WD10EURX (HDD) (1) G.SKILL F3-12800CL9D-4GBXL (4GB RAM) (1) BIOSTAR B85MG (motherboard) (1) SeaSonic SS-300ES (power supply) (1) GeoVision GV-800B video capture card No...
Pros: This processor is fantastic for a computer that is ON all the time. The power consumption is very low and the performance seems good.(I'm not a gamer so your results may be different. The whole computer idles at 28 Watts!!
Cons: The fan that comes with the CPU is noisy at top speed, however, this processor does not need that much cooling. I went into the BIOS and changed the CPU fan operating to run much slower and it cools the CPU just fine at low speed.
