4 out of 5 eggsGood choice

Pros: Excellent choice for mini ITX builds due to the low power consumption while still offering decent speed. Teams up very well with the Asus M4A88T-I MB. Runs pretty cool with stock Heat sink and fan,even in very small case. OC's easily and runs stable.

Cons: A little pricey compared to the regular 240.

Other Thoughts: Used the Asus core unlocker feature but no joy, just a two core. This processor, above mentioned MB, INWIN ITX case and 4 gigs of GSkill ram has been a great upgrade over my old Media PC. It takes up less than half the space and I have been able to watch HD movies, run a virus scan and provide the music content in another room with out any issues or slowdowns.
