Summary: I am still waiting for Intel to reply ... This chip cannot do the basic thing what i brought it for... so its a totally frustrating experience .... if you want to use it even for basic video capturing/rendering it is a TERRIBLE horrible product
Pros: This processor is ONLY meant for general use ... like basic internet browsing , watching movies and listening to songs etc.....
Cons: I brought i3-540 processor and Asus P7H55-M motherboard and every video jerks whether in the capturing stage or after editing a movie and saving it... no matter which OS I use.. I have tried win7 64 bit and 32 bit too and even win XP SP2 .. I have tried dloading the latest drivers of the motherbo...
probably a good chip from a good home but I cannot say ...

Summary: Bit of a hash up this. Indicated that it was a 1155 LGA 2nd generation Core i3 by the search listing but only when arrived found it not. So probably works, probably a good chip from a good home but I cannot say anything more, sorry.
