Little pricey for performance but not bad

Comments: I may be biased towards higher end CPUs having an i7 920 in my desktop and i7 2630-QM in my laptop.

Great little chip!

Comments: Overall I love this Processor and will recommend it to all looking for a decent everyday tasking CPU. Plus with a socket set of LGA 1156 you'll have plenty of room for upgrades when you're ready.

Epic Processor

Pros: This processor is great i have it overclocked at 4ghz with cooler master v6 gt and arctic silver 5 thermal compound has yet to touch 40c idles at 20c-25c and games max settings at 35c-39c. For $99 i would highly recommend as a starter processor or for a budget system.

Cons: Wasn't free :p

Other Thoughts: Any questions on how to make yourself an epic pc let me know ;)

5/ 5

Pros: This processor did more than i was told. It did stay at 2.8 GHz, it stayed at a good 3-4 GHz, along with this amazing processor the devivary was over night when i didnt even pay for over night shipping. I would recommended this to anyone. Whats even better is that it was only $99

Cons: I would prefer pins but im not complaining

Overclocks nice, cool running

Pros: Overclocked to 4.3 Ghz @ 1.4V using a Corsair H50. Load temps were about 64C.

Cons: No HT or Turbo Boost, could be cheaper to compete with AMD's low-end

Other Thoughts: Not using the on-die graphics. Overclocked using a Gigabyte USB3.0 mini-ITX motherboard.

Good CPU

Pros: Easily overclocked to 3.12 with stock fan with very little temp increase (1 or 2 degrees C). Will overclock further once I get a better cooler (i dont want to take any chances). Plays blu ray once overclocked. Very cheap for LGA 1156. Being an LGA 1156 it is a great starter CPU. It allows you to upgrade CPU to an i3, i5, or i7 in the future without needing to get a different mobo.

Cons: Didn't render the color when playing blu ray right out of the box. Easily overclocked it to 2.95 and played blu ray. Overclocked again to 3.12 and played blu ray even better.

Other Thoughts: Read articles about this CPU and they overclocked it to 4.5 and killed it, but got another one and pushed it to 4.2 and worked fine with aftermarket cooler and fan. Plan on overclocking it to at 3.5 once I get a better cooler.

G6950 vs i3-530

Pros: Not sure

Cons: go with an i3

Other Thoughts: For the price point your time and money may be better spent with
an i3.

Great Processor on a Budget

Pros: Great little chip, I also got this chip at another store with an MSI board for $105, so that comes out to about $52.50 for the chip, if I had to pay full price for this, I do not think I would be as happy.

Cons: None, except stock clock for IGPU, but it easily overclocks to 733MHz, which is stock for the core i3/5.

Other Thoughts: I use the IGPU for light gaming and htpc purposes. I have the processor overclocked at 3.145GHz, and load is 30*C with stock fan, though I do have the A/C on.
