Summary: So far so good, it works great and a good upgrade for my computer. It kept my temps much cooler as had more power to run programs. Overclocked much easier and stable than my i5 processor. The new ones are way over priced for being old technology in my opinion.
Summary: When I built my computer 4 years ago, this thing was like $600.00 expensive so I went with an i5, Now it's reasonable, but also discontinued. Thanks to Amazon, I was able to find a company with a few on their shelves. It's like a coronary bypass for an aging computer. I feel young again.
