This Intel processor is great and I went to a higher GHz Intel processor.
5 November 2013
Summary: All I can say is Thank you for putting your product on Ebay because searching people for various products can find them here on Ebay and decide whats best for them and the purpose and the use of the Item.I have purchased many Intel Processors on Ebay and tried them and they all have worked great and I ask a local computer man about the Intel processors and he told me to get the highest GHz and try to get the one that will work best on my computer, and I did.
Summary: This CPU came in my Gateway PC that I bought back in July '10. Specs: LGA 1156 Motherboard H57M01G1 (10 USB Ports) 1 TB HDD i3 530 -- 2.9GHz (w/Integrated HD graphics) 6 GB DDR3 1333 MHz RAM 1 VGA 1680x1050 Monitor 1 HDMI 1280x720 Monitor (No dedicated Graphics Card) Practical Stress Test I am, at the moment, playing a DVD on the HDMI monitor, and iTunes, a YouTube video and a downloaded Flixter Movie on the VGA monitor with CPU usage only at 50%!
Summary: This is by far the best entry level value into the next generation of Intel processors. I highly recommend it to any system builder as it maintains an excellent speed rating with cost, and that is hands-down the best value for most end users.
Summary: I purchased this item to try to solve issues I was having with my computer after getting some nasty malware...the seller was great and the product arrived quickly and was in great condition. However, once installed, this wasn't what was wrong with my computer...so I needed to return it. The seller was very courteous about the return and the process went smoothly. Will buy from this seller again in the future.
