Great CPU, bad heat sink retention

Mike, Amazon
23 January 2014
  • Summary: The CPU is very fast, very stable. The fan is very quiet. after using a CPU benchmark software for around 10 minutes, the temperature teetered below 70C. That said, the retention mechanism for the heat sink is poorly designed, it uses push pins that sometimes click when you push it in. I had to take off the heat sink, clean it up, apply new thermal compound, and try a second time to get it on good.

i5

Phillip Block, Amazon
28 July 2014
  • Summary: very good cpu at the low end of i5s. The stock cooler is really quiet and was easy to install. The fairly low clock speed is what is limiting my framerates in games like ARMA 3 but that's to be expected I suppose.

Mid range I5 this is the one for people not wanting to Turbo.

Koca, Amazon
8 July 2014
  • Summary: Bought this for a new build PC, for light gaming and editing photo's in LR5 and PS. Although only had it a couple of days cant find nothing to fault, stock cooler runs quiet too. Anyone who is not interested in OC this is the one for you, sure there are other more expensive ones that run 200-300 MHz faster but difference is negligible unless you run many heavy programs at the same time.

Good mid range quad core CPU

Mr Baz, Amazon
1 July 2014
  • Summary: I've built a few pc's based around this processor it's a step up over the i3 performance wise, but avoids the price premium of the higher end i5 or i7. But you still have enough fire-power to handle decent workloads such as photo/video work and makes for a solid gaming CPU too. With 4 cores and 4 threads, normal clock speeds are 3.1GHz with 3.3 GHz max turbo, it is a step up over the older 2500 i5 processor, though it should be noted if you are planning on over-clocking,...

Does what it says on the box

adrian jordan, Amazon
7 April 2014
  • Summary: As I expected the processor was very easy to install and the fan supplied is extremely quiet. I teamed it with the H87 mother board and a corsair case and ssd drive, the result is a nearly silent pc. You can only hear it when the cd or normal hard drive spins up. The processor gives 7.4 on the windows experience index. A reasonably priced cpu at the centre of my gaming pc.
