Pros: Awesome entry CPU to socket LGA 1200
108 USD get 4 cores and 8 threads
Runs over 4GHz
Great product for price
F suffix if you don't need on CPU graphics, must have discrete GPU Pro for me
Overall Review: Love this CPU paired with a GTX1660. Keeps up with GTA 5 and 60FPS all day with V Sync on. With high and ultra setting game was running over 80FPS with this combo. Great CPU for gaming in 1080p. Keeps up.
Plop it in the socket, use stock heat sink it came with because it runs cool, and enjoy it for gaming or office use. It's fast for normal everyday things like YouTube and MS Office apps. This will be a popular CPU!
Pros: No onboard GPU and a small price reduction. Includes a basic cooler.
Cons: The cooler that comes with the processor is good for moderate use, but fails to provide adequate cooling if you're doing any long-term, heavy calculations or gaming.
Overall Review: Great processor, great price, nice cost savings. I would buy again.
Pros: Decent specs for mid to high end gaming, No doubt you'd run into a restriction of GPU in MOST gaming use cases.
Pretty good mid tier as far as content creation goes, you wont be cranking out 4k video renders at blistering speeds, but in most of my uses it rendered 1080 to 1440 at a pretty nice rate considering for years I was running a i7-4790 non k edition that was a little on the slow side.
Cons: The stock cooler is not good enough for this product, Unless you get really good luck with thermals I would honestly say you are going to have issues with thermal throttling and VERY high temps, I thought at first it was just a poor installation of the stock cooler so I reinstalled it with some Noctua paste I had around. Didn't help much at all.
If you wanted to game with the stock cooler you are going to be fine in like 95% of the games you play as long as they aren't too CPU intensive, so things like ARMA 3 would probably require a better cooler, and if you want to render videos AT ALL you 100% need an aftermarket cooler, I personally am getting ready to run to a Best Buy as I type this to pick one up, because I have tried the stock cooler for rendering and I'm reaching temps in the mid 90s or higher and its throttling after only about 10% of the video is rendered.
Overall Review: Overall this product is great for mid to high tier gaming and low to mid tier content creation. Would recommend especially at this price although I would strongly suggest an aftermarket cooler of some sort if you want your processor to retain lower temps under full load.
4 eggs because as usual Intel stock coolers aren't great if you have anything above the low end processors.
Pros: - Came the very next day
- No damage on product
- CPU worked out properly without any issues
Overall Review: - Good for someone needing computer parts ASAP
- Great for mid-range pc builds
Pros: -very low power consumption
-good gaming performance
Cons: -probably not future proof, buy a unlocked 8 core if you plan on using it for many years
Overall Review: very good alternative for gaming to ryzen 3600 given the price and availability situation at the time of purchase
Runs at good speeds with the stick cooler
Overall Review: Pricing is average, and you get a new Intel chip that has passed QA testing, not much more to write about, but it does pair nicely with an RX-5500
Pros: Great CPU! The price makes it even better, but i got her running at 4Ghz and under 60c with stock cooler while playing 7 days to die alpha 20 on high settings with mothion blur off.
Overall Review: Extremely happy with my purchase and and the quick shipping times during the holiday season.
Highly recommended! If your a light user or not worried about being "future proof" or getting more FPS than needed. I paired mine with a B560 board.
Overall Review: I bought this without gpu using it with msi radeon rx 550 4gb oc graphics card and also using liquid cooling on it. Works perfectly.
