Summary: I was looking to upgrade my AMD 4 years old PC but I needed something that would not generate a lot of heat due to where the PC is placed and it's air circulation. I've been an AMD user for a really long time but I opted for Intel since my reviews did lead me to believe this would work out for me.This processor has proven to be the best for me since although I have seen an incredible upgrade on performance the overall temperature on the case is below 90 degrees F.
Summary: have had this for awhile now with not issues Its doing the job it was bought for, hard to recommend it to others when technology is is always moving onward and upward so I'm sure by the time of this review there are better products out now.
Summary: This is my last upgrade to sustain me desktop wise for a number of years as the PC has plateaued for the time being. Everything is going mobile so I will be good with this for a long while. This processor is powerful in its on right and does what I need it to do. Don't wast your money on the high end if you don't have to because there is hardly anything that a processor like this can't do.
Great performance and low power usage, cant complain at all!
