5 out of 5 eggsGreat budget cpu

Pros: Installed in a MSI probox21 and works great does every thing i need it to do. Great for a internet surfing, youtube, netflix, and with the integrated graphics it'll support 1080p.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: As I've currently installed only one of the seven for the builds im doing cant attest for the reliability the the one that is done works great.

5 out of 5 eggsCheap and decent

Pros: Cheap, does decent for the price.

Cons: None, I got what I paid for

Other Thoughts: I hate this CPU lol. It works for what it is though, so I can't downrate it just because it's not as powerful as I want it to be. If you're just doing multitasking it's fine, but for has a habit of locking up at times. Don't get me wrong it does well enough to hold up with BF4, but the locking up gets annoying. My ram anymore is doing a lot of the carrying.

4 out of 5 eggsquiet cool

Pros: I'm an AMD dude but my four core richland apu runs a little too hot and is overkill for basic media consumption. I wanted something cooler and quieter. An HTPC type of computer to watch mostly HD sports hooked up to an LED tv.

I was about to order the celeron but saw the L2 cache on this was 3MB for about $10 more. Quadcore Haswell is a bit too much to pay for my barebottom needs in this build.

Plugged this into an Asrock board. It runs cool and quiet. Windows 8.1 didn't have a problem with it.

Comes with a sufficient heatsink, but I don't do any first person shooter gaming on this. Intel drivers are good and efficient. Easy to install.

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: If I played Call of Duty or bitcoined, I'd probably upgrade the heatsink.

5 out of 5 eggsRuns well

Pros: This CPU has served me well for my rebuild. I don't do too many process intensive things these days, but my kids play the heck out of minecraft, and it keep up just fine on basic settings.

Cons: None yet. People have complained about a heat issue, but I have yet to experience that (although, I have 2x80mm fans and 3x40mm fans on my box)

Other Thoughts: I am about to purchase a second one since my kids now hog the computer to play games/do school.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat CPU

Pros: The processor is fast and runs cool. Also, will handle up to PC3 1600 RAM

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: At the beginning of the year I had this cpu in my mini-itx gaming build as a stop gap before deciding on which i5 or i7 to ultimately go with. I had planned to use it in another build for an HTPC. However, now it is going into a mini-itx gaming build for my daughters. While I was using it it was paired with a Gigabyte GTX 770 and GSkill Sniper 1866 RAM. The RAM was downclocked to 1600 and it worked fine. So the memory controller can handle RAM up to that speed. I tested the system with BF3, BF4, and Max Payne 3 and it performed very well. While staying cool. My daughters will be playing the SIM 2, 3, & 4 mostly so that will not be a challenge for this processor. This will go into system with an AsRock H81M-ITX motherboard, EVGA GTX 750, 8GB of the same 1866 GSkill Sniper RAM.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazingly capable budget cpu

Pros: Low power consumption (read, heat) even when running on full blast. seriously. When you receive the stock cooler, it might be loud because the cables that run along the perimeter of the fan guard obstruct the blades slightly. Simply unhook the cables from the little plastic hooks on the fan and its quiet as can be. Runs nodded Skyrim at 1080p at high settings with an old gtx470. (About an R7 260x.) For the price you can't really go wrong.

Cons: Can't over clock. only really a con if you're into that, although they do make an unlocked Pentium for the LGA1155 boards now that costs maybe 15 dollars more. No hyperthreading, but if you bought this I don't think you would need more than two cores. if you bought this and you do, you have no one to blame but yourself.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Value

Pros: Low cost, lots of performance.

Cons: Only one thread per core. But this isn't a big minus for general computing.

5 out of 5 eggsFor the price, Phenomenal!

Pros: - Price to Performance ratio is Outstanding!
- Power Consumption & Thermal Output are quite low
- Intel's got a really good answer to most of AMD's offerings in the price range
- Mulit-Tasking is better than most would expect
- Barely breaks 40C with any descent tower cooler.
- System idles at 15W with an SSD and a Bronze 80+ PSU.

Cons: - Only Supports 1333mhz RAM speed, but honestly, it's not a huge deal. You can tighten the timings on higher speed RAM to compensate.
- Stock cooler is anemic, but sufficient, and keeps the price down. If you want silent, upgrade.
- Intel has no inexpensive true quad core options
- I wish AMD had something truly comparable.
- An i5 is like 2 of these on one die, why does it have to be 3x the price. :(

Other Thoughts: I have experience with all kinds of processors, considering I have been performing professional computer repair for over a decade. I have grown to love good, efficient, budget chips. The kind you'd want to recommend to the average person.

This is the Athlon X2 of its day! Cheap dual core that pairs great with a cheap motherboard, using very little power, and works fine with mild cooling. A perfect multi- purpose chip. However, Intel has really raised the bar with it's 3MB of L3 Cache and a integrated video that is usable!

The Sandy Bridge version of this chip was so pricey, it was nearly as much as a Phenom X4 of the time. A matter of tradeoff in that regaurd. The Ivy Bridge version improved this with increase clock speeds, energy efficiency, and lowered cost. This version takes it to perfection, IMHO, especially with it's extremely low idle speeds!

So what's the competition these days in this price range? AMD A4-A6? No thanks! As much as I used to love AMD offerings, these are glorified Single Core chips at high clock speeds. While they may have a descent idle power consumption showing, they use far to much power at max! Considering for the same price, you get the Pentium, I don't see why anyone would do the A4-A6 build. The integrated video is not significantly better to warrant the sacrifices. As much as I used to love and tout AMD offerings, I find them useless in this comparison. A8-A10 offering are far better comparisons, but are priced far and beyond this chip.

The newish AMD Kabini chips, such as the 25 watt Athlon 5350 is an interesting comparison. If multi-threaded performance at lowest possible TDP is important, then a Kabini chip may be the way to go. Plus it's a bit cheaper. Priced like a Celeron.

Anyways, I think this Pentium hits a perfect sweet spot. The build in video is enough for basic computing, and the chip teams up well with a mid-range video card for a great budget gaming rig!

If you gotten this far through my ramble, more power to you!
