5 out of 5 eggsVery good little CPU

Pros: I've had this Celeron in a server running a camera system I built, and has been running 24/7 for about 5 months now.
It seems to be a very reliable chip
Doesn't get very hot, even at 100% load.
Whole system draws at the most 75 watts at full load.
Very cheap price.

Cons: cheap heat sync and fan.

4 out of 5 eggsFYI Limitations

Pros: 1- Snappy little dual core for price
2- Low TPD draw of 55 watts
3- Great for HTPC, home use, or budget gaming pc
4- Runs cool even under a load

Cons: 1- ** Does NOT support a PCI-E 3.0 graphics card even if your motherboard has a 3.0 slot
2- OEM fan/heatsink are cheaply made
3- No hyperthreading
4- No overclocking capabilites

Other Thoughts: Although your motherboard may support PCI-E 3.0 graphics card unless you shell out money for an i5 or i7 LGA 1155 socket you'll still be bottle necked to PCI-E 2.0; due to Intel CPU limitation of PCI-E 2.0 to 2.1 if you wanting to build a budget gaming pc you may want to find a decent PCI-E 2.0 or 2.1 graphics card; instead of a PCI-E other words LGA 1155 socket i3s and below do not support PCI-E 3.0 graphics cards. I dropped my original rating to a 4 egger; due to this absurd limitation. I'd still say buy this processor, IF you are planning on using it for HTPC, or home use; however for any budget gaming rig bear in mind take into consideration you'll be limited to PCI-E 2.0/2.1 bus speeds.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat value/ Performance

Pros: <$50
Purchased this CPU for my home entertainment system. Runs absolutely smooth on my Ubuntu.

Cons: Could not Overclock.
For its price, it is very hard to say there is a Con for this CPU

Other Thoughts: A great CPU for budget builds that caters to less intense computing needed purposes. Runs flawlessly for a Celeron.

5 out of 5 eggsIncredible Price/Performance Ratio

Pros: What's great:

1- I paid $42.99
2- Dual core @ 2.7GHz
3- Windows 7 WEI score was 6.6
4- Unlike Celerons of old has snappy performance
5- Only pulls max. 55 watts
6- CPU grease already applied

Cons: What's not so great:

1- Heatsink does not have copper base
2- No hyper-threading
3- CPU fan could be loud (unless you control it via motherboard BIOS)
4- *** I found Intel tech support worthless (see other thoughts)

Other Thoughts: In this price range Intel has AMD beat hands down! There was some confusion over whether this CPU would work with Crucial DDR3 1066 Mhz RAM, since on Intel's site states it is only compatible with DDR3 1333 Mhz RAM. I contacted Intel about this and the tech quoted verbatim what is posted on their site, so I tried it anyway. On Windows 7 it booted w/o any issues whatsoever and is stable. Here is the build specs:

Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 32 bit
WD 1 TB SATA 6 harddrive
Crucial DDR3 *1066 Mhz RAM (3 gigs)
KingWIn 650 watt psu
Nvidia GT 430 DDR3 1 gb 128 bit graphics card
MSI LGA-1155 motherboard
Intel G1620 CPU
Rosewill case
Rosewill 80mm case fan

I'd highly recommend this processor. For the price/performance ratio currently can be beat!

5 out of 5 eggsProcessor

Pros: Decent cooler for the price. Perfect for a NAS / HTPC / Plex server. Handling two transcodes at once over the network.

Stock heatsink keeping idle temps at 35 degrees.

Cons: none thus far.

4 out of 5 eggsHTPC chip

Pros: This is an insanely efficient CPU. Fully loaded, CoreTemp is reporting that its drawing 16-17 watts. Idle is around 3-4. Coupled with a Radeon 7750, 16GB of ram and 7200 RPM hard drive, fully loaded system draw during gaming is around 80 watts total. That is an insane amount power for such a low power draw.

I understand why the cooler is so small with this processor, it could very likely run a passive cooler in a case with good airflow and still stay cool..

Cons: Not sure there is any other than the lack of TurboBoost and Hyperthreading. But its a $60 processor, what can you expect.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for a small enclosure based htpc, this is a great foundation for such a system. Go with an itx board and single slot card (Radeon HD7750 the current champ here) and you've got yourself a very capable htpc that you can actually play some games on. Was able to play World of Tanks at near max settings and World of Warcraft at near max settings without any issue at 1080p resolution.

5 out of 5 eggsAbsolutely Love It!

Pros: Very efficient CPU. Installation was a breeze. The included fan isn't too big and fitment was idiot-proof. Temperatures maintain between 20-40 degrees under normal-heavy use, respectively. I purchased this CPU as an upgrade to my 7 year old system which is mainly used as a secondary unit providing for document creations, web surfing, email, etc. I have it paired with 4GB RAM (GSkill), ASRock motherboard (cheapest one they have), and GeForce 9500 graphics card. Surprisingly, the new setup performed beyond my expectations. I would HIGHLY recommend this CPU to anyone looking for a decent upgrade. This is my first Intel chipset and so far, I'm happy.

Cons: Could have been cheaper? Haven't noticed any, really. Will update as necessary.

4 out of 5 eggsNo Vista support

Pros: Fast for the money (passmark as high as Pentium G860)

Cons: No Vista support for the embedded graphics on any Ivy Bridge processors. I confirmed this with Intel. They support XP, 7 and 8 but specifically NOT Vista. This is not made clear, unfortunately. If you are running a PCIe Video card then this won't matter. I had a spare Vista license I had hoped to use, so this was an unpleasant suprise.

Other Thoughts: Excellent low cost choice unless you are running Vista. If you are, then stick with AMD or the previous Gen Intel chips.

5 out of 5 eggsWow!

Pros: A winner in terms of performance/dollar and performance/watt.
Idles at 26ºC and runs at 38ºC during stress test in a 22ºC room with OEM cooler and pre-applied thermal compound.
Motherboard draws 26 and 38 watts respectively with high efficiency power supply and only a SSD HD.
On chip video is entirely satisfactory for everyday usage.
750watt power supply anyone?
How about a giant heat-pipe cooler?

Cons: Not exactly: using an older H61 motherboard, had to flash BIOS and download drivers to run 22nm CPU.

Other Thoughts: I apparently logged into Newegg’s CPU page shortly after the G1620 had been posted but before the G1610 made the list.
Had I waited a few minutes, I’d have seen the G1610 and would have ordered it instead; 20% cheaper for a 4% speed reduction.
But $10 isn’t exactly a calamity.
