Great, Affordable Processor for NAS Server

Hyoun Kim "Faluzure", Amazon

  • Summary: When I was drawing up the blueprints on building my DIY NAS, the i3-4130 processor was one of the ones recommended by FreeNAS. The processor itself is much cheaper than the higher end CPUs recommended for a FreeNAS build (Xeon E3-1200), but packs enough punch to make sure you never have CPU issues. This processor also supports ECC RAM, which experts say is absolutely necessary when building a NAS server based on the ZFS file system.

Great CPU for the price! Performs well in about every task!

  • Summary: In 2003, my family bought a gaming PC with an Intel CPU. It was fast for the time but quickly became obsolete. It was VERY loud with its stock Intel fan and would put out enough heat to make a room many degrees above ambient even when just doing medium load work. In 2011, I got a laptop for college. With an Intel Core i5-2410m, it was alright for the time and could play most games up to 2007 (with quality adjustments for some).

  • Summary: I am very pleased with this i3 processor purchase on the new LGA1150 platform. Handles all applications and media I throw at it without any problems. The bang for the buck is excellent. Currently paired it with mITX board (also purchased from NCIX) and 8 GB of DDR3 ram.
  • Pros: Fast CPU for the price
  • Cons: None

Great performance, even greater value

  • Summary: I had purchased this chip as a compromise of sorts so that I could have the headroom to purchase a Devil's Canyon chip down the line for my z97 board while maintaining my budget. However, I am plesantly surprised at how much performanced is tucked into for all intents and purposes is an entry level CPU.

great value in a Haswell 4th gen

  • Excerpt: Used for home computing, mid-level gaming, and small amount of video editing. Haswell 4th gen with hyper does a great job on common tasks and gaming. A little slow on the rendering with only 2 cores, but I knew that going in. Low watts means less heat generated. Good for small case htpc builds.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast

This CPU is used in a basic browser/light gaming setup ...

  • Summary: This CPU is used in a basic browser/light gaming setup and does a spectacular job. I can't say I would use it for heavy gaming or video processing but for a daily user, this should be adequate.
