5 out of 5 eggs1st Intel

Pros: Have always built with AMD so this is a first.Its a low end processor so I wasnt sure what to expect.With 8 gb ddr3 ram it is very fast & quiet for a home pc & win7.Iam happy with it.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Fast shipping & no problems.Thanks again Newegg

5 out of 5 eggsVery quiet stock cooler

Pros: This little CPU worked great in a GIGABYTE GA-H61M-HD2 LGA 1155 motherboard.

The thing that amazed me is that the cooler/heatsink/fan that came with it is really quiet and very effective. (did not try overclocking) It is also quite compact so there is no conflict with RAM modules.

The onboard video worked fine. No problems at all with any phase of building this machine.

Cons: none at all

Other Thoughts: Really impressed by the stock CPU cooler. Of course it helps that the CPU does not put out a lot of heat!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat CPU!

Pros: Very quick for my needs, handles HDMI video out almost flawlessly. Web browsing is no problem.

Cons: At the worst there is some slight lag when skipping through an HDMI file (my SSD is fast enough to handle it, plenty of RAM so it must be the processor), but considering all video processing and graphics are being done by this processor alone I can understand and it's a tolerable lag <1 sec on a 1080p video). No stuttering/lag during normal playback.

Other Thoughts: This is used in my home theater PC, so it's primary use is web browsing and video. Streaming via Netflix/etc or local files is almost perfect aside from the con mentioned. It does handle advanced photo-editing in Photoshop CS6 with minimal lag time even when compared to my other PC's quad core i5-760 @2.8Ghz.

Considering this chip has such low wattage, it is a beast and at a great value. Anything within $30 on either end of the price range can't compete for my application (HTPC set up). Intel rocks!

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: for a very cheap low power solution, its great. Capable of playing games like minecraft at low settings with no GPU at 40-50FPS which is impressive for something this low power and by itself.

Cons: none that i can see really.

Other Thoughts: Its a low power CPU. What can you really expect from it other than to use it for low intensity applications?

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect for general office workstations

Pros: Fast--very fast. Dual-core allows one thread/program to freeze without grinding your system to a halt. Very low power consumption saves on your electric bill. Low heat output reduces fan noise and extends longevity of your system (as chip lifetime is inversely tied to temperature). Same cache size as equivalent Core i3 chips.

Cons: Not cutting edge graphics--not recommended for intensive gaming for for graphics professionals.

Other Thoughts: Other than slightly better graphics and hyper threading (if you need either of those), I see no compelling reason to spend far more on a Core i3, i5, or even i7.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Value

Pros: Using with ASRock B75 Pro3-M motherboard for a Windows Home Server 2011 system. HDMI works great with this chipset/cpu combo. With 8 GB of RAM, the system is always able to serve media and perform daily backups. CPU is totally capable of supporting this server system.

Cons: The stock fan is audible.

Other Thoughts: Great low power chip for my server build. I didn't need anything fancy, and this is doing the job for a great price.

1 out of 5 eggsNot happy at all...

Pros: It does have integrated graphics.... but still I am totally disappointed with this processor.

Cons: The processor on average uses more power than an Intel G530 and runs way slower and costs way more.

Other Thoughts: I was building a NAS type system with this. Initially started with an Intel G530 processor (ASUS P8-H77I Mb, 16 gig memory, one seagate 1.5Tb HD). The system ran smoothly at 35 watts at idle and 41 watts with hard drive running. The wattage would shoot up if the processor would perform heavy operations. I was hoping to use the G630T to bring my idle wattage down. The G630T ran between 36 and 41 watts at idle and the wattage wasn't as stable as the G530. It jumped to 46 watts when the hard drive was active. The wattage never went over about 47 watts though unlike the 65watt G530. But being that this was suppose to act like a NAS the G530 would mostly be running at 36 or 41watts which is better than the G630T wattage consumption. The G630T is super slow also, almost unbearably slow. It should be labelled a G430 or G330 to make it more accurate and the price should be dropped by $40. I was hoping to have a system running under 30 watts at idle. What kills me is that this processor never uses less than its TDP, 35watts. Apparently there is no refund on this either. BTW, I used a Kill-A-Watt meter to check the wattage.

5 out of 5 eggsLower Power and Cool

Pros: 1. Extremely low power (35Watt TDP)
2. Because it's low TDP, it's also extremely quiet, even with stock fan.
3. Stock fan keeps CPU at 30c, granted I don't push this unit to its max.

I was looking for a decent dual core CPU for my FreeNAS file server box. It's going to be running 24/7. It's running mostly idle since FreeNAS isn't heavy on the CPU, so I did look for a CPU that was as low power as possible with good performance. This hit both on the nose, and was the perfect choice. My whole File Server running 24/7/365 will probably cost me about $35 in power consumption idling at 20-30watts.

Cons: CPU will bottleneck your RAM speeds to 1066mhz. I knew this going in, but I still grabbed some GSkill Sniper 1.25v RAM to cut down on power consumption.

Other Thoughts: Rig:

Intel G630t
Asrock H77M
2x 3TB Western Digital Reds
8gb Gskill 1.25v Sniper (only using 4gb for lower power consumption)
