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.

5 out of 5 eggsA good intel product

Pros: Serves it's purpose as a media center CPU.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Paired this with a Intel BOXDB85FL (Nuc) MB & a WD 4TB HD to be used as a media pc and it functions well.
It's really too bad intel is no longer manufacturing motherboards.As this is my 3rd pc build using all Intel and i have grown to like their products.

5 out of 5 eggsBang for the Buck

Pros: Runs cool with my AIO water cooler . Works great for games .More than enough for a general PC user with the ability to play games , movies , music etc ... while web browsing and other muti tasking chores . Please read other thoughts.

Cons: None for the specs

Other Thoughts: I bought this processor as a go between as a replacement of my failed i7 4770k till the i7 4790k is available .
This is not a i7 or a k version so you really can't ask too much of it being a dual core cpu but ....don't let the fact that it is a i3 fool you this is a wonderful cpu plays all my games with my gpu installed like BF4 , Hawken , BF3 , Wolfenstein , Titan Fall etc etc you get the idea.
For the price it works great I wouldn't have bought it had my other i7 not of failed but waiting on the newer version of the i7 to be released and need a get me by till then .
This is a great cpu for anyone looking for a bang for there buck cpu or just looking for a really nice everyday pc .
If you are a hard core gamer like myself maybe this might not be for you but it will play games just fine especially in the situation i got myself into when my 4770k took a dump .
Now this lovely jewel will be a learning tool for my daughters first build when the other one gets here.
Hope this helped you decide.

5 out of 5 eggsimpressive

Pros: 3.5 ghz. hyperthreading...
hd4600 graphics.
pcie 3.0 graphics, on those motherboards that support it.
runs like half of a i7-4770!
runs amazingly with a gtx680 and a H87 motherboard.
magical!.
saves you 100 dollars over a similiar i5.

Cons: can get hot.

people assume that it is weak... NOT.

Other Thoughts: it does seem counterintuitive that an i3-4330 has the same performance as i5, but on games it does! (of course with a strong graphics card, gtx 680 or higher)

my experience with this processor is in an asus h87i-plus(0905 bios) and a gigabyte h87n-wifi (f4 bios, and f7 bios) with EIST off.

when paired with a zotac gtx680amp!, power target 132%, and w/c, runs every game at great FPS on ultra, on high amazing!... (crysis, crysis3, tomb raider, bioshock: infinite, metro 2033)

make sure that the h87 bios is not the newest (asus 0905, gigabyte f4) because updating the bios to the "haswell update" can Possibly slow down your frame rate score in firestrike graphics test 1.

while the physics score is higher on a i5, the graphics score is the same on a i3-4330.

i am amazed at how this processor can compete with an i5-4690!

5 out of 5 eggsCore i3-4330

Pros: Very capable single-threaded performance. Inexpensive for the performance offered. Decent graphics, suitable for very casual gaming.

Cons: Runs a little warmer than expected. Really benefits from aftermarket cooling.

Other Thoughts: Perfect fit for a budget Haswell build. Like every Intel proc I've installed over the years, this one installed without problems and performs as expected. Actually, better than I had hoped, and beats out my 5-year old Core-2 Quad Q9400 in processor intensive tasks. Runs great with Kubuntu 14.04 Linux. I installed a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo, and I'm glad I did. The proc idles in the high 20's to around 30 C. Under load with Prime95, I'm seeing temps in the high 50's. Not bad, but I'm surprised to see a 54 watt CPU running even this warm.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat CPU for Linux

Pros: Easy to install and works flawlessly with my Fedora 20 setup.

Cons: The heat sink is cheap. Strongly recommend looking at an after market replacement.
