It's a good, decent, budget processor

electronicnut, Amazon

  • Summary: I got this processor back in 2010. Even at this point in 2012, I was debating if I wanted to upgrade my processor as this processor has handled everything great. I'm a normal computer user ... like most folks, I browse the internet, watch videos, check email, etc. It handles everything just fine.

good stuff

  • Summary: I bought the entire I3 system: Intel processor, Intel MB, memory, HDs, windows 7... it all worked flawlessly unlike buying from newEgg. The newegg site will lead you to incompatible memory or processors and then they'll charge you a 20% restock fee.

Good starter

John Jr., Amazon

  • Summary: For me, this was just a "for now" CPU. Going to one of the i7K CPUs in maybe 6-8 months. But this CPU is doing a great job. Replaced a PC that had a Q6600. I think this is a bit faster than that. Very happy w/ this CPU.

Cheap, quiet, fast enough

  • Summary: I wouldn't put this in my gaming machine, but I just built a very cheap media server/firewall/server with this that works great and is so much faster, quieter, and less energy hungry than the old P4.

Good but not fast

Pedro, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a good CPU for the price it is. After buying one for my aunt (she wanted an iMac, but she thought to be so much expensive in Brazil - 4k reais -, so we decided to build a PC with the same settings), I saw clearly how it lacks of computer power sometimes.

Good Quality CPU

D. Rigsbee, Amazon
11 October 2010
  • Summary: This is a good CPU. I paired it with a Gigabyte GA-H57 USB3 motherboard. Easy to install, package included cooling fan with thermal grease already installed. I didn't realize that the i3 doesn't have Intel's "Turbo Boost" but that is not an issue with the processor just my research.

Immernoch OK

Hr.Z. "Coryn", Amazon
11 February 2014
  • Summary: Der Prozessor ist trotz seines Alters problemlos in der Lage auch neuere Spiele mit normaler Grafikanforderung zu meistern (Bsp. Diablo III). Diese Anwendungen setzen jedoch einen guten Kühler voraus, denn der Prozessor kann dabei durchaus recht warm werden.

Intel Core i3 Una buena opción

ama_fco, Ciao
17 April 2011
  • Summary: Este microprocesador tiene un buen rendimiento en juegos y manejando video y audio, si lo complementamos con una buena placa a la que ponemos 4 Gigas de RAM le metemos un sistema operativo de 64 bits, una buena tarjeta grafica y le colocamos un disco duro rápido, veremos que tenemos una excelente...
  • Pros: Su potencia
  • Cons: Resulta caro usarlo para aplicaciones sencillas

Gut im Preis und Leistung

Bobi, Amazon
8 January 2011
  • Summary: Also für den Preis kann man nicht meckern, ich bin so Zufrieden, der PC rennt dank Übertaktung von 3,7Ghz wie eine Rakete, für eine gute und leise Kühlung habe ich den Scythe Big Shuriken genommen, beide ergänzen sich. Und das beste, durch die Übertaktung habe ich mir ein i3 Topmodel gespart.

Kaufempfehlung

Robert S, Amazon
1 November 2010
  • Summary: Ich habe den Prozessor im System für meinen Vater verbaut, der den PC nur zum surfen/Office verwendet. Der Prozessor bleibt dabei schön kühl, läuft stabil, und schneller, als ich für den Preis erwartet hätte. Kleines Manko: Der mitgelieferte Lüfter ist ziemlich laut.
