Jauffrey "Juffins", Amazon
23 April 2015
  • 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.

Great for a media PC

Jake Esau, Amazon
8 February 2015
  • 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.

The whole computer idles at 28 Watts!

Mark E., Newegg
18 January 2015
  • 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.

Amazing price to performance ratio

Jayson R., Newegg
17 January 2015
  • Summary: This thing has easily taken on many newer games at high and ultra presets, (paired with a Radeon 6870) and handles most other tasks with ease. If you're under a tight budget, I would highly recommend this chip! Extremely hard to beat for the price.
  • Pros: In terms of single threaded performance and mild multitasking, this thing tears through anything with a comparable price. Takes low power while doing it too so it's easy to keep cool.
  • Cons: Only 2 hyperthreaded cores, but what more could you ask for at this price? Hardly a con as it's to be expected.
