Plenty of processing power, graphics and saves energy.

  • Summary: I bought this to install in a Shuttle XH81V and so far love it. It came with the fan/heatsink combo but I didn't need it because the shuttle already had it. Plenty of processing power for my needs and the integrated graphics also suit my needs very well. I found this on Amazon marketplace for under $150.

The i5 That could

Calvin W., Newegg
13 August 2014
  • Summary: Although the price is up there it is much less than an I7 and if you are thought conscious of power consumption but still want great performance this is the chip to get. Couple this with a GTX 750 Ti you are looking at a very good system per price and per watt.
  • Pros: Absolutely outstanding performance from a 65w TDP. If you are afraid that it will not perform because of the low stock ghz do not be afraid. The turbo function works and it works well. 22nm and low tdp keep this chip running cool even in my small bitfenix prodigy case which is only being cooled by the cpu fan, graphics cards fans, and one 120mm fan. It's an intel which means it has better performance per core even at a slower clock speed, don't ask me how this magic w...
  • Cons: No overclock but I knew that going in, kind of pricey, no extra threads like the i7 line, not the newest i5 on the block anymore.

Great Processor, but runs a little hot

AC, Amazon
22 July 2014
  • Summary: Intel core iX series are the best processors, although too pricey. Unless you need so to do a lot of encoding/video editing, I don't see there is any benefit in paying more for an i7 series processor. If you are a hardcore gamer, a K version of i5 should do more than you need. Benchmarks may tell you something different, but you won't see tangible real life improvements.

Great CPU for low power systems.

a dead china doll, Amazon
9 June 2014
  • Summary: I selected this CPU for a small form factor computer with the intent of gaming but with a lower power consumption than typical. I haven't had any problems with the games that I have thrown at it. My system hovers around 32W and shoots up to just above 100W when I have a game running. I realize there are other factors to low power computing but this is a solid choice for anyone with the same system building philosophy.

Surpsingly fast.

Justin B., Newegg
16 May 2014
  • Summary: 2.9GHz is still very fast. I didn't actually test or compare, but I feel as though this chip is still significantly faster than my previous one. Which was an Intel i5 2500. Also this chip is not overclock-able. I didn't list it as a con, because it isn't. The chip is designed to produce low heat. So over-clocking would defeat the purpose of that. It's a very ideal CPU for a small-form-factor gaming build, or powerful HTPC that doesn't use a dedicated graphic card.
  • Pros: Very fast little CPU. - Though only 2.9GHz, very speedy. - Relatively cooler, thanks to 65W TDP. - Plenty of power for gaming. - Plenty of power for multi-tasking. - Far more power than needed for every day browsing. - The on-die graphics (Intel HD 4400) are very good. Was able to push 2,560 x 1,440 without a hassle. [Obviously not gaming.]
  • Cons: Honestly I can't think of any except wishing it was 3.0 GHz. Just because a number below 3.0 GHz for a desktop seems low. But...
