5 out of 5 eggsMore than expected

Pros: Makes an excellent budget CPU. Runs many of my games on decent settings and resolutions with a mediocre GPU.

Cons: Doesn't rub my feet.

5 out of 5 eggsLoving this processor

Pros: Low power
High performance
Silent computer with stock cooler
Never reaches 50 degC

Cons: Only problem I've had is bad screen tearing after setting up my rig. Going on the boards, I found that this is a MS problem, not an Intel problem. After turning on Aero in Win7, the screen tearing went away.

Other Thoughts: Got it on sale, makes it even better.

4 out of 5 eggsGood for the price

Pros: This is a good CPU for the price, it has been able to handle everything I have given it with minimal slow down. The heat sink is very quiet and seems to work just fine for me, I only see low 40s C even when playing games but I do have a dedicated Video card so the CPU is not working as hard as it is for others complaining about the heat sink.

Cons: For the price their are no cons, this will do everything the average user will do with it. But I will say I wish I would have paid the extra $60 to move up to the I5. There are times I have to wait for a process to run that I don't ever see happen on my older sandy bridge I5.

Other Thoughts: I have a sandy bridge I5 that reports benchmark at around 6500 score, This I3 is reporting to benchmark at a 5050 score. I went with the I3 to save a little money and didn't think I would really see that big of difference in performance between the two, but I certainly can. If given the chance to do it again I would come up with a little more money and go with at least an I5. This CPU is good for the price and it does work well and does a nice job but I know I will end up upgrading to an I5 or I7 as soon as I can afford it.

4 out of 5 eggsI like it

Pros: HD graphics runs my HTPC video at 1080p with no issues so far.
Runs cool (with no overclocking)
Perfect for my setup

Cons: There's an issue with HDMI audio on the 4600 HD Graphics. You'd think it was an issue with the motherboard and in fact my fix was done through the MOBO for right now, but I do think the issue is with the i3 drivers (even the latest drivers have this issue as of the date of this review). Read on.

I have a Gigabyte H81M-HD3 with this, and the HDMI is plugged straight into my TV. When the TV is turned off and back on, Windows loses the HDMI audio and only a reboot would bring it back. I tried every version of every driver and in every combination you can imagine between the CPU And Motherboard. Nothing helped. Intel wanted to divert me "go get the latest drivers" which of course I had tried 100 times.

This was actually resolved by contacting Gigabyte who provided me with an unreleased alpha version of the F4 BIOS. After flashing with this, the problem went away. I know you're thinking 'well, this sounds like a motherboard issue'. I know it does. And actually it could very well be, however if you search the web, everyone is having these problems, not just Gigabyte. ASUS, MSI, Gigabyte, and even the Intel boards are all having this issue with the HD 4600 graphics/HDMI audio. So it's a widespread issue with the 4600 across multiple brands. I have a Gigabyte MB with an i7 HD4000, and HDMI doesn't lose audio on it. Because of that, my experience and gut tells me Intel is the culprit, though I admit I could be incorrect.

I have read reports of this not being an issue when plugging HDMI into a monitor with built in speakers, but for a TV, it's definitely a known issue.

Other Thoughts: Since the BIOS update, I haven't really had a problem with this chip. I really like it, and as long as you have a game plan for this contingency (if it even applies to you because I know not everyone is using this for an HTPC), I'd recommend this. It's a good little processor. Just be aware of the things I mentioned.

The reason I'm taking an egg off is because the issue I mentioned has been around since the chip was released according to the web, and Intel is still saying their techs are "working on a solution". I feel they're diverting everyone until all the board manufacturers come up with a fix for nagging customers. Again, just speculation, but there you have it.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat i3 processor

Pros: Installed the CPU in a custom mini ITX box built recently. Planning on using the computer mainly for virtual machines to be setup. Nothing graphics intensive. With 8GB of RAM, I'm sure this i3 will rock.

Cons: nothing yet.

Other Thoughts: came with a stock heatsink/fan which I'm using. hope it'll do a good job. if not, I'll move to an aftermarket.

5 out of 5 eggsGood processor

Pros: There's not much to say. It's fairly cheap, fairly fast. I dropped it in and it works. It comes with a heat sink and fan, which are pretty low profile. They fit in my case, which is under 4" tall with plenty of room to spare.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: This will work with a hackintosh.

5 out of 5 eggsSimple, Easy, Works

Pros: Easy to Install.
Fast enough for people not doing anything intensive.
Not too expensive.
Stock cooling fan works fine enough.
Onboard graphics work fine.

Cons: Nothing worth worrying about.

Other Thoughts: I selected this to save money on the build. This is great choice between the lower end chips and i5 and i7 chips which cost much more. If you are not doing high end gaming, or video editing, this chip will work fine for you.

Pop it in, and go.

5 out of 5 eggslow power gaming cpu

Pros: great for a budget gaming rig. it keeps up with my old corei7 940 clocked @ 4GHz. got this core 3 for the 4600 graphics, didnt fit in the budget to get a dedicated gpu. plan on buying a video card for build down the line. mainly used for playing wow, plays at high settings at a good solid 45 fps, even in raid.

Cons: heatsink is a joke, lucky me i had an old zalmen cooler sitting around.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent performance

Pros: I am using this processor primarily for number crunching with various distributed-computing projects. The two main cores combined with the two virtual cores allow me to run four work-units at a time, doubling the throughput. I am very pleased.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: DO NOT use the 3-day UPS service on this! The service isn't guaranteed and UPS takes advantage of it by downright falsifying claims of "severe weather delays" during perfectly beautiful weather along the route. It's been over a week since I ordered my second processor, and now that the weekend is here, it will be yet another 3-days before I get it.

5 out of 5 eggsAll you need for budget gaming

Pros: Very quick, single thread performance is up there with the i5's and i7's. Runs cool.

Cons: Can't overclock. Intel's really annoying with this whole K and non-K thing, and the i3's would be dynamite if they were just unlocked.

Other Thoughts: This processor is really all you need for gaming. Single thread performance is basically equivalent to Intel's higher end, and games just aren't that multithreaded yet. I'd take this over an equivalently-priced AMD any day, especially if you don't plan on overclocking.
