Summary: I bought a i5 3330 to run windows server 2012. The cpu has been great. System has 24g of ram and 7tb of combined hd space. I have had no problems running Hyper-V running Win7 and Win8 at same time. Going to load a linux workstation and server next. This is the best Ivy Bridge i5 cpu.
Summary: I managed to get this one for $160. This was pretty much a steal, and it runs very smooth. Runs very cold at idle, and barely gets to 60C at full load. Love it. One problem is I wish the CPU fan was not such a terror to get into my motherboard. But that comes with every boxed CPU.
Summary: Item is recieved in good working condition. Estimated delivery time was abit off but still bearable. Made my rig alot faster now! Previously used a pentium G series but now im convinced that my rig has much more mileage to go until its off the shelf. Not that the pentium G sucks though
