5 out of 5 eggsWorks as described

Pros: This processor works great but graphics leave a little bit to be desired. The Core I3 3225 is only 3.3 but has HD4000 graphics which for a workstation worked better but I knew this when I purchased this processor.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Ivy Performance

Pros: Bascially all you need to run most single threaded games on Linux or Windows. Four threads is nice but Haswell Pentium is a competitor on low-end expecially with Linux. Single threaded performance crushes AMD.

Cons: Although Haswell is newer this is far from last gen tech. X79 is all Ivy and current max on high-end.

Other Thoughts: Ivy Bridge is the high choice X79

5 out of 5 eggsGreat on a budget Gaming Rig

Pros: I really gata say, for an i3 processor it really packs a punch, I'm literally playing Battlefield w/ a GTX 650ti that is, all I'm saying that it all matters on the graphics card, it's really good if your on a budget which I do recommend.

Cons: All I gata say is that the fan sucks, get an after market one that's all.

Other Thoughts: Get a really good graphics card, the CPU (in my opinion) does not matter.

5 out of 5 eggsVirtualization on the Cheap!

Pros: One of the cheapest Virtualization-ready processors out there.
I threw it in an ITX case, paired with an $80 mobo, and have been running an incredibly stable Server2012 on there to host my projects. No ECC ram necessary. no extra cooling necessary, just incredibly cheap and reliable!

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Paired with a motherboard with a Broadcom NIC (ASUS P8H61-I R2.0) that supports Windows Server 2012 R2 and using the single PCIe slot for a SAS HBA Card going to an external JBOD. This is more than strong enough for a demo, and could hold a dozen VMs under light load.

5 out of 5 eggsGood CPU

Pros: Can take anything I throw at it but I haven't got around to heavy loads yet. I've got up to at least CPU Usage 70% and everything is running fine. Great Price too.

Cons: Sometimes my computer just slows down as if the computer froze for a slight moment.

5 out of 5 eggsGood price for Intel, excellent quality

Pros: Processor runs very quickly, excellent speed rating for the price. Stock fan works pretty good, I've turned off my chassis fans and it's still maintained a good 30C and below for minimal processing.

Cons: Not as cheap as AMD. Gan obviously could use updating, but that's just part of using stock.
