Summary: Purchased everything for a new computer build (my first, 3 years ago I was computer illiterate) from NewEgg except for this CPU. Just happen to have a gift card for another store and wanted to use it up since I never shop there. NewEgg's instructional videos rock!
Pros: A great, inexpensive chip paired with my Asus P8Z77 MOBO. I don't game at all, but with multiple windows open and watching videos, the temp stays under 40 even with the stock heatsink, fan and pre-applied compound.
Cons: Not a con, but I hate measuring temp in Celsius. It stays right around 98-102 Farenheit.
Wow! Made my life more than the shattered husk it was!!!

Summary: An Amazing Product at an AMAZING price! I cant tell you how much better my life is thanks to (Add Product Name Here) . So many wasted years I wandered the wastland without hope...forced to write unusually long reviews for product so basic a chimp could understand them.
Summary: Used this in my first ever budget build. Didn't want to spend too much since I was afraid I'd mess something up, but I have no regrets about selecting this little beast. It has run everything I have thrown at it flawlessly, and stays cool doing it. I game mainly, but nothing too harsh.
Pros: 3.0 Ghz, fast, cool, reliable, it's Intel, what do you expect?
Summary: Paired this with 8 GB and a 7770 for a great gaming computer. Don't let someone try to convince you ya need a 300$ processor to play games unless you have a 30" monitor. This thing works great at 720 and 1080.
Pros: 3 ghz and two cores, plenty of cache, runs cool. CHEAP.
Summary: I used this MOBO to build a desktop for my wife. It was easy to install with the other components: Seagate Barracuda 500 GB 7200RPM SATA NCQ 16 MB Cache 3.5-Inch Internal Desktop Hard Drive ST3500641AS-RK-Retail Kit Logisys CS301BK Mid Tower Computer Case with 480W PSU Black Corsair XMS3 8 GB (2 x...
