4 out of 5 eggsDecent CPU

Pros: Good CPU fast and easy to OC

Cons: I only give it 4 stars because i got this for a Hackintosh build and the intel 2k is not compatible at all with OSX so external GPU was required.

5 out of 5 eggsI5 Rocks!

Pros: Great Processor! I highly recommend it, I haven't O/C but haven't needed too, I do some light gaming, and some audio editing, this processor handles it without a problem. The included heatsink has worked great for me, and installed without a problem.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent product!

Pros: Works fast and quietly.
I have had no problems that I am aware of despite the fact that I accidentally dropped it approx 4 feet onto tiled flooring.
Durable ^
Worth the almost $200 price tag. Would buy again.

Cons: Installation was tough. The motherboard felt like it wanted to snap. I hired a professional builder to install it for me.

Other Thoughts: I'm not sure what else to say. It's quad core, it works great, it's quiet.
It came with a stock fan that had thermal paste pre-applied.
Sidenote: During my first build I ordered everything I wasn't sure of including thermal paste. But now I'm ready in case I want to upgrade from stock fans.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it

Pros: Love it. Went from a Dual Core 2.93 with 2 threads to this and wow, huge difference. I love it.

Cons: The stock cooler sucks. 67 degrees at idle. Get the http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103106 and knock your temps down to 32 degrees no kidding around here.

5 out of 5 eggsvery good cpu

Pros: got this for a budget build and I was very surprise by how good it was. It takes a mild oc very well and I found that it was not a heat monster, have not pushed it that much I'll let my kid do that. I very please with it

Cons: Like others have said the fan that comes with it is not that good

Other Thoughts: I was thinking about an i7 but a friend that was also doing a build and got an i7 came by and he said that that if he do it again he would get the i5. SO if you need a good cpu without breaking the bank, this is for you
