5 out of 5 eggsGreat desktop graphics, finally!

Pros: PLENTY fast for a desktop system.

Cons: None for what it is billed to be.

Other Thoughts: I built my wife a desktop type system when her (my old) gaming ASUS SLI-Deluxe PC died. As gaming PC's are WAY overkill for Email / web usage and light games, I decided to built to suit her real world use;
i3-4330 3.5 GHz CPU
ASRock X97 extreme 4 MB
Onboad CPU graphics
Onboard Sound
8 MEG GSkill 1866 RAM
SAMSUNG 850 PRO 250 Gig SSD
W7 64 bit HOME

I used an 850 pro as I can max out its performance and ALSO expect a decent life as an OS drive. I keep my PC's for YEARS till they die, so life is as important as speed. Cost is now reasonable, too, on this sized drive. Her old 1 TB Seagate went to the file position as a data drive.

The 1866 memory is overkill 1600 would be fine except that the 1866 was the same price for some reason. I set it to XMP for 1866 only. No CPU overclock.

Does this system work? MUCH better than I expected. Compared to an MSI P55-GD80 1156 socket i7-870 SATA 2.0 W7 64 bit system, it matches it in all but accelerated graphics used in my game PC (AMD 6870 card)
Her is the data; i7-870 then the i3-4330;
-
CPU 7.5 / 7.3
MEM 7.5 / 7.7
W7 7.8* / 6.7 - *aided by 6870
Gaming 7.8* / 6.7 - *aided by 6870
HDrive 7.4 / 7.9 - BOTH are SAMSUNG 850 PRO SSD's

Of course, heavy duty work will use four cores verses two (both with hyper-threading) but still, this CPU is an ideal design for a decent desktop home system. A few seconds to encode a music RIP isn't an issue at home. Maybe twenty a day, but not casual use. STOCK fan and runs at 30C.

Also, the on board Intel 4600 graphics are excellent, finally! I bought the almost the "best" i3 CPU to get the 4600 series graphics and it paid off handsomely. The PC is a X97 ASRock Extreme 3.0 motherboard with ZERO daughter cards. Can you say NO NOISE. Can you hear me now? Yes, you can!

So if you are Leary of an i3 CPU, or are afraid they can't perform, don't be. At least with the 4330. Check the performance and be realistic to your needs. EVEN if you are a gamer, adding a graphics (AMD or NVIDIA in cross fire / SLI if you must) daughter card, this system will ROCK. Most games are card limited over CPU anyway.

So kudos to Intel for the better desktop graphics. Yes, I have an NVIDIA GTX260, but why add the NOISE and power draw? I also have a Creative Labs Audigy sound card but heck, the MB sound is more than fine with her speakers.

So this i3-4330 is excellent used as intended. Makes my older i7-870 feel the heat on the home network, that's for sure!

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: As with all Intel chips the proc is quite powerful, even for a dual core. The price to power ratio was "ok", but certainly better than the AMD chips available (A series) for the Mini ITX build HTPC

Cons: The HD 4600 graphics are no better than what AMD had on the market two years ago. It doesn't support audio over HDMI off the Mobo, and had HELLA problems with the 4600 driver causing a bios screen restart loop. The windows "update" driver causes the issue as well, so be sure to use ONLY the driver provided with your Mobo. (using an ASRock mobo) I would suggest having a video card around just in case.

Other Thoughts: The proc runs pretty hot, particularly in small cases. This one idles over 50C, so an aftermarket cooler is definitely needed if it will fit inside your application.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid

Pros: Speed
Quality

Cons: Expensive

Other Thoughts: I am an Intel person so I don't mind paying a premium price for a superior product. I would put this CPU head to head with any quad core in the same price range easy. This thing really does perform well. I used this in a gaming build and I do a lot of productivity as well and I can say that I have never had a slow down or lag occur.

5 out of 5 eggsBueno

Pros: I coupled this processor with an asrock h97-itx/ac board and used the stock intel cooler in a coolermaster elite 110 case. My temperatures on coretemp at idle are low 30s and under load are mid 50s. The temps are a little spikey but nothing seems out of hand so looks good to me.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsgreat CPU

Pros: Fairly cheap
Powerful enough for average use
Stay cool
Uses very little electricity

Cons: Bad stock cooler

Other Thoughts: I was building a cheap PC to stream a 1080p webcam 24/7.

ASRock H97M Pro4
Intel i3 4330
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 4GB (2 x 2GB)
Mushkin 60GB SSD
DEEPCOOL 300 CPU Cooler

I built the entire thing for less then $300 (I already had a case and power supply) and it performs really well. It streams using Open Broadcaster software at 1080p @ 30fps no problems. Using about 70% of the CPU power. The CPU temp are in the mid 30C to low 40C. While straming. Using less then 40w for the entire system.

5 out of 5 eggsLoving it so far

Pros: Plenty of processing power

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I got this for my first gaming rig along with a gtx 760 and haven't had a problem playing any game on max settings so far. Maybe down the road I'll regret not getting a quad core but hey for the price you could use this until it's obsolete then upgrade to a top quality quad for the same price.

3 out of 5 eggsNot a good replacement for a i7 920

Pros: Runs cool, quiet, boots fast. Handles single tasks great.
For a budget gaming or media center go for it.

For the price cant complain

Cons: If you have weather.com and ebayer.com open at the same time the cpu is already hovering at 35-45% cpu usage. This on a multi-screen system, with a clean o.s., minimal drivers and no a.v.
I will be selling this chip to upgrade to an i7.
If you plan on multi tasking, go for the i5 or i7.

It does handle single tasks as fast as a 6yr old i7-920, but load up more then one app and the i7-920 will continue to be snappy and the i3 will slow down. Not complaining, just telling it how it is

5 out of 5 eggsi3 4330 review

Pros: Hard working dual-core, does very well in most all games if paired with a good video card. 4600 graphics work good for general apps and low requirement games.

Cons: Supplied heat sink is not very good. Only consider using for it for general computing needs.

Other Thoughts: I paired with a ASUS H81m motherboard, 8GB Ram (corsair 1600), heat sink/fan and a 560 Ti video card I had and was surprised by the performance of this CPU for most any game I played ( Skyrim, Boarderlands 2, Tomb Raider). Most games only use 2 cores anyway and the 3.5 GHz speed allows this CPU to do its job well. Replaced the CPU heat sink and fan with a old one I had laying around with silver thermal compound and have had no heat issues even under heavy loads.
