Summary: With Digiconcepts, there's a lifetime warranty for the processor. Hopefully not needed anytime soon for a replacement. Going good and strong since Thanksgiving. Used as an upgrade for the gateway Sx 2841-09e, its visible that the difference is huge. Smoother, more efficient processing and rendering compared to the stock pentium. Easy install and no hassle, 1080 looks like 1080 with this piece. So far so good.
Summary: I upgraded from i3 530 to this baby and I can't complain!! This cpu brings large performance!! It's old but, it's still a beast out there!!! This beast can even run today's games like Battlefield 4, Metro Redux etc on high to ultra settings without any lag!! Paired with my Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST, and 10gb of ram, my pc has become a sweet spot gaming pc!!
