No Complaints

Daniel R., Newegg
28 October 2014
  • Summary: This was used in a machine for my Dad that I haven't used much. However, he hasn't complained, so that's a good thing. It was probably overkill for the particular machine, though, so I don't know that it's been used for anything that would test it.
  • Pros: Low power, super quick, and the fan is quiet enough.
  • Cons: It was expensive.

Very disapointed

Jude, Amazon
8 March 2014
  • Summary: Bought one of these. Performed like absolute ****. Made games run slower and got blue-screens about 4 times a day. I contacted the seller and returned it. Bought another one, assuming that one was faulty...performed like **** again. Contacted the seller, they wouldn't refund my money, so I sold it.

Is Good Processor

Paul P., Newegg
4 March 2014
  • Pros: Has done well for gaming and loads of adult content streamed in 1080p. I've had one bluescreen in two years and that was the fault of the game, not the processor. For a middle of the line gaming rig it's more than sufficient and works like a dream without a hiccup.
  • Cons: Streaming doesn't seem to work out too well, and video capture goes full derp sometimes or looks awful. This could be due in large part to the fact that I also don't know how to do it. My roommate won't shut up about how his ancient i7 is "just as good" even though we both know it's getting outda...

Awesome...

Walter L., Newegg
27 December 2013
  • Summary: I run this CPU overclocked to 3.9GHz with the stock fan. The temps stay around 40-45 degrees Celsius while on the desktop. For games like Battlefield 4, the temps stay between 70-75 degrees. Without being able to overclock the CPU much further, the stock fan cuts it but just barely.
  • Pros: Super fast. Relatively Cheap for Intel.
  • Cons: Limited Overclocking Capability.

Excellent gaming with back up integrated graphics.

Will, Amazon
15 September 2013
  • Summary: I built using this and a discrete graphics card (7850). I played Diablo 3 with the integrated graphics for a few days before the video card came. I was impressed. It wasn't fantastic, but it ran and was playable. I did a lot of research before building my last PC and this CPU fit the bill.

Great Performance, Good Price

Sean H., Newegg
4 May 2013
  • Summary: Not much to say, it's an Intel i5, it's what you'd expect.
  • Pros: Great performance, decent price
  • Cons: The fan is cheap, but that's just what you get with a processor. It would be nice if the fan quality was better.
