  • newegg Intel Core i3 Dual-core Processor With dual processing cores, the multitasking monster Dual-Core Intel Core i3 processor delivers twice the performance on highly-threaded applications, taking your desktop PC experience into a completely new realm of mega power. The powerful processor delivers serious performance on the ultra-demanding games of today and tomorrow. The innovative 32nm dual-core technology optimizes thermal performance for reduced power consumption and noise.
  • newegg Intel Graphics Technology Intel Graphics Technology provides a visually stunning experience optimized for Blu-ray and HD video with Windows Vista support and comes standard with many notebooks, desktop computers and motherboards—without the need to add an external and costly graphics card.
  • newegg Intel Advanced Smart Cache Intel Advanced Smart Cache Technology dynamically allocates the shared L3 cache to each processor core based on workload. This efficient, multi-core-optimized implementation increases the probability that each core can access data from fast L3 cache, resulting in significantly reduced latency for frequently used data and improved performance.
  • newegg Greater Performance with Hyper-Threading Technology Hyper-threading enables multi-threaded software applications to execute two software threads in parallel to improve system responsiveness. Intel Core i3 enabled with HT Technology delivers performance and multitasking gains that result in increased productivity and efficiency.
  • newegg Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology (EIST) EIST allows the system to dynamically adjust processor voltage and core frequency to decrease average power consumption and average heat production. Combined with existing power saving features, EIST may provide an excellent balance between providing power when you need it and conserving power when you don’t.
  • newegg Execute Disable Bit (EDB) Intel's Execute Disable Bit function can prevent certain classes of malicious "buffer overflow" attacks when combined with a supporting operating system. Execute Disable Bit allows the processor to classify areas in memory where application code can execute and where it cannot. When a malicious worm attempts to insert code in the buffer, the processor disables code execution, preventing damage or worm propagation.

5 out of 5 eggsBest chip i ever got :)

Pros: Had this chip for a little over a year.
Overclocked to 3.6 not too long ago and temp were too high for my comfort. getting new cooler soon and cranking this baby up to 4.0+.

This gives a high end Dual-core but act like a quad-core!
Can play any game my GPU can handle, Runs every game a recommended Specs, when i say EVERY I mean Battlefield 3, any of the CoDs, Skyrim on ULTRA at all max fps all the time. Though My HD 4870x2 bottlenecks sometimes.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: best CPU you will run into on the low budget high end gaming spectrum.

5 out of 5 eggs3.4 when I got it, 3.6 now

Pros: -Initially overclocked to 3.4 on stock heatsink.
-Overcloced now with a Corsiar a50 cpu cooler @ 3.62. a50 keeps temps at 22-28 idle, 35-42 under load, my load being gaming.
-Good temps on stock, great temps on aftermarket
-Most games only use 2 cores, my CPU runs at 3.6 while your quad for more money is running 2.0ish. gg.

Cons: -Its not a i5,i7, or a any quadcore for that matter.

Other Thoughts: Overclock is using X.M.P. with G.skill ram on a Asus mobo. X.M.P brings the ram from 1600 to 1800 at the same time the cpu goes from 2.93 to 3.6 at a 20x multiplyer.


I only hate on quadcores becasue I can't afford them.

5 out of 5 eggsTough Little Chip

Pros: Performance suits my needs at a reasonable price. My previous computer of 6 years was a single-core Pentium M laptop so I'll be amazed at the speed of any modern multi-core desktop CPU. The relatively low power consumption was a plus.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: There's always a faster, better CPU in the future. I hope my Core i3 will last me at least 2-3 years. Should I ever upgrade the CPU and motherboard, the Core i3 will make for a good HTPC and/or server.

5 out of 5 eggsRuns great

Pros: Runs great even on the stock cooler.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Well

Pros: Easy to install, low price.

Cons: Stock fan and heatsink aren't stellar; they're stock what more can I say?

Other Thoughts: Generally you get what you pay for, but this little puppy can deliver a lot of power for it's low price. A good upgrade from a dual core 775 socket.
