  • Summary: I bought this 2 years ago for a monster PC I was building. 2 years later the PC can still run almost every new game at max settings, partly in debt to this. Highly recommended part.

  • Summary: I was worried that I wouldnt be enough processor. I was wrong. It runs Windows 7 PRO 64 bit like a champ. Im using the on board graphics and they are great. runs a 24 inch monitor great. Plenty of processor for an everyday computer.

So far so good

  • Summary: I have had this Intel Core i3-550 Processor 3.2 GHz 4 MB Cache Socket LGA1156 since 2011. About 3 months ago, I overclocked it up to 3.7 with Cooler Master V8, but it didn't run stable. So last week, I ordered my first water cooling kit and I installed to my case and everything was good. Guess what? I jumped the clock speed from 3.7 to 4.51 with no problem @ the temp. of 32 C & MB temp. @ 27 Not bad huh? Now I run it @ 4.17 because I don't wanna burn my CPU.

Best deal around!

  • Summary: First of all, I am an Intel fan. Not only that, but I am stock holder and an Intel enthusiast (yes, we actually do exist). Hopefully I can answer some questions you may have about this processor before you put it in a system. The original Core lineup (i7, i5, i3) were generation one, Sandy Bridge is generation 2, and Ivy Bridge is generation 3. I call Conroe the lost generation, or generation 1.5 in the evolution of the Core line of processors.

Incredibly Fast!!!!

Francisco Pifano, Amazon

  • Summary: It had been too long since the last time I clicked on an icon and the program popped up right away... Now, I finally feel like back on those good old days when PCs were fast and I could get a lot more done in a lot less time! Friends told me I should have bought an i5 or i7 instead, but for the price I got this little mean machine, I'm more than happy!!!

BRILLIANT PROCESSOR

  • Summary: Got it for an HDTV application with an HDMI Intel motherboard. I was slightly sceptical due to some surprisingly downbeat reviews of the current wave of Intel motherboards. However, I have been using Intel motherboards for about ten years and they seembulletproof. I have some that were so caked in dirt and dust I was surprised they still worked. Took a chance and built the HTPC - works brilliantly.

Great value for gaming pc

Daniel Zilber, Amazon
31 January 2011
  • Summary: I recently built my first pc for gaming and wanted a good mix of value and performance for each component. The intel core i3 550 seemed like a good value, having the combination dual core + hyper threading and an onboard graphics processing unit. The onboard gpu is nice because my motherboard does not have onboard graphics and if my PCI-e graphics card did not work for some reason I would still have a functional computer.

Excellent speed and value!

Joe D., Amazon

  • Summary: I recently made the switch from Mac to PC and decided on a custom built computer. I did not trust purchasing a "name brand" system and wanted to choose my own parts, etc. I opted for the Core i3 550 and couldn't be happier. It runs fairly cool and is very quick! I'm not a gamer and don't plan to OC the chip so I don't have any comment on that end, but it has handled Windows 7 very well in many aspects.
