4 out of 5 eggsCore i3-3220 Ivy Bridge

Pros: - Excellent Price-Per-Performance
- Low TDP means less electricity used
- Quad-ish core
- Intel (bit of a fanboy) ; )

Cons: -CPU intensive games like Skyrim and some RTS's may lag a bit.
-Hyperthreading not friendly for all games/programs
-Not as powerful as a true quad core
- Mine can get a bit warm (over 60 degrees Celsius) with stock fan and decent thermal paste

Other Thoughts: The Core i3 series are a poor mans quad core. With two physical cores and two virtual cores, this chip is a step up from a dual core or possibly older AMD system. Decent for gaming and media usage, the core i3 does an excellent job for the price. Deducted one egg due to excessive heat ( have excellent airflow btw) and no unlocked core i3 (shame on you Intel)!

4 out of 5 eggsNice Proc/Great Price

Pros: This little proc has 3 things going for it. The first is the price, the second is hyper threading, and finally - low power draw. Building a system based around this chip gives you an upgrade path for swapping out a nice i7 proc in a couple of years when they are cheaper because of advances in tech. Intel switched over to the 1150 chip interface before I bought this one, but I bought this chip instead of the Haswell chip because I was building a Hackintosh and at the time I didn't want to fight with the Haswell chips to get it running with OSX since Apple hadn't released the Haswell powered Macs yet. This is still a good chip for the money and an excellent value proposition.

Cons: This is not a quad core processor - it is a dual core processor that makes Windows see it as 4 cores due to a trick known as hyperthreading. Hyperthreading works much better on these chips than in the original Pentium 4s which Hyper-threading caused to run so hot you could hardly keep them cool. That being said if you need four physical cores then you really need to step up to a core i5. If you want overclocking - you need to step up to a K series i5 or i7. You can mess around with the timings and some other features to try and get a little more oomph out this core i3 but you are really wasting your time since its multiplier locked.

Other Thoughts: Bought and installed into a mighty fine Hackintosh system that my brother-in-law has yet to mess up. These processors work really well and in terms of cost it gets you into an Intel system for a very small amount of money.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for grandma

Pros: + hyper threading! more apps!
+ low power!

Cons: um?

Other Thoughts: my grandma does some hardcore facebooking. I thought that Intel was a great choice, as only the I3 can handle extreme facebooking for a reasonable price!

5 out of 5 eggsGood for gaming

Pros: Fast, very low power consumption. high single thread performance.

Cons: not good for heavy multi threading (knew that when purchasing it

Other Thoughts: if I were to do it all over again, would have went with Intel Xeon E3-1230 V2 Ivy Bridge 3.3GHz

a little more expensive, but basically an I7 for 230 bucks.

5 out of 5 eggsFast & Good

Pros: Very quick for a dual core, it has hyperthreading so windows will see it as a quad core. It's great for gaming and handles a gtx 650ti just fine. Very good for budget level entry gaming

Cons: You can't over clock it but that's expected.

5 out of 5 eggsgood processor

Pros: This processor is stable and fast for the most current needs such as youtube, web browseing, office, and has extra horsepower when needed. Of course 50+ less than the I5 for budget builds.

Cons: none so far yet.

Other Thoughts: I have built 2 workstations and 1 personal computer using this same processor and has not let me down a bit. I even have the older generation (Sandy) of this series in another build.

1 out of 5 eggsExpensive for less performance

Pros: it runs cool.

Cons: This processor is about $130 and it is slower than an $80 AMD Athlon X4 740 in benchmarks it shows that the i3 3220 has about 92% of the performance of the AMD Athlon x4 740.. so why spend $50 more for a slower CPU buy AMD Athlon 740 x4

5 out of 5 eggsBang For Buck

Pros: Great little CPU. Upgraded from dual core 2.4,775 socket to this CPU and an ASRock mb and What an improvement. I have A 1st and 2nd generation in two other computers and this just maybe little better than either.

Cons: None
