Summary: The delivered CPU was installed in an ASUS Sabertooth 55i motherboard. It did not respond. Another Sabertooth 55i motherboard was employed it failed there as well. This particular CPU is useless to me. I elected to go with a different CPU which is working quite well in my system.

Summary: The first gen core I processors including thr core i5 680 rank 7.1 of 9.9 on the Wei in win 8. Pretty good performance for a mor than 5 year old processor as of 06/14/13. Intel has not drastically changed the architecture that much in the fourth gen core I series release on 06/2013 only boosted clock speeds and added more cores. The core i5 670 also ranked 7.1 of 9.9 in win 8 so not much difference there either.
Summary: Great proc, fast, fast, fast. The fastest there is for single apps. Yes, it is a dual core proc. Please read the technical details. If anyone buys a proc based on the picture of the box....well then they get what they deserve! Great proc, great speed, and keeps very cool with stock cooler.
Summary: If you purchase this item thinking you will receive an i5 Quad-core processor, you are wrong. This is the wrong box for this item. This processor is a duel-core processor. Check the stats on the intel web site.
Summary: Habe ihn mit einem Mainboard Gigabyte H55M-USB3 mit 4GB RAM eingebaut. Läuft tadellos und schnell, ohne Hänger, unter Windows 7 und Linux (Kubuntu 10.4). Auch die eingebaute Grafikkarte ist für mich schnell genug - keine Spiele. Bleibt trotz Serienlüfter und ohne separaten Kühler im Gehäuse relativ kühl. Auch beim serienmäßigen Lüfter hat Intel offenbar etwas gemacht.
