Summary: I installed this processor in a PC I built 1.5 years ago. It's a great comprimise of price and perfomance. It's not the fastest, but it is stable and reliable. Has never overheated. I do primarily gaming (online),video editing, and file converting. Recommended for mid level PCs.
Summary: I bought one of these and threw it into an ultracheap rig. As in "came for free with the second-hand desk" cheap. It performed very well at stock settings and seems to be safely OC'ing at 3.3 GHz with what I say is an observable performance improvement.
Summary: I had been struggling with my Celeron CPU E1200 @ 1.60GHz. Was very sluggish and I couldnt deal with it any longer, so did a bit of research and decided to upgrade. This was simply plug'n'play. The only tinkering I have ever done with my PC is replacing RAM & changing my WiFi card.
