Summary: In my experience, using the Intel Pentium G620 2.6 GHz Dual-Core (BX80623G620) Processor was an easy install and smooth running. There was plenty of power and it was good to know that there was an Intel CPU at the heart of the pc.
Summary: OH! ALSO. It does NOT support DDR3-1333 RAM. By that, I mean you can install DDR3-1333 RAM, but it will only read at a max of DDR3-1066. I wish I had known that before buying it, but it's no big deal. There's not much of a difference between the two anyway.
Pros: Not really sure what to say here. It does what it needs to do. At 2.6GHz, it can do quite a bit of multitasking.
Cons: I don't believe the CPU can be overclocked. I'm not doing any, so it's fine for me, but just a heads up.
Pros: This CPU + a AMD 7750 in any old 200-300 watt case = 110 watts playing 40 watts idle with generic 7200rpm HDD and 1.5v 1600mhz ram on a h61 board. 1080p skyrim/d3/bf3 machine ranging from medium to high 45-60fps normally rarely 30.
Cons: None half the cost of an i3 with less than 5 fps difference using a 7750 with the i3, why spend more?
Pros: I was somewhat hesitant to choose a Pentium G620 over a i3 at the same speed. I was wrong this CPU performs very well and quite fast as a dual core. It doesn't have hyperthreading but is quite competent if you are going to use it as an HTPC build. Built in Video works well and quite fast for IGP.
Summary: Plastic 'tongs' that behave like wall anchors are too flimsy. When mounting this thing the first time one of the tongs bent back preventing the heatsink from properly mounting. I guess it's my fault, but it was so much more annoying than the side clip mounts I'm used to with my AMD builds.
