5 out of 5 eggsLike a boss.

Pros: This thing is pure awesome. It seems to run a lot cooler then other i7s out there was checking out other reviews of 7's and they seem to run hot but this thing stays right around 19c - 40c has a ton of power can't wait to see what else's this thing can do.

Cons: Nadda

5 out of 5 eggsQuite quick

Pros: Low power consumption, 4 cores-8 threads, EFFICIENCY!

Cons: How about 45 watts at 4GHz unlocked. Hahaha

Other Thoughts: As much as I liked AMD, their TDP and performance was lacking. The AMD quads slugged out doing video conversions and photo edits. The video side was far more demanding but all those seconds/minutes waiting is lost work productivity.

This rig beats through 500 frame conversions in 7 minutes not a half hour like the AMD. F@H SMP on WU 6906 was stepping at 7.X minutes.

Stock cooler manages at 54-55C when F@H was breaking it in. Have a 212+ but when doing video and photo edits, it maintains 50-51C. The stock cooler is sufficient for my uses and is quiet.

5 out of 5 eggsSilly Fast

Pros: Blazing fast

Cons: with all the advancements in technology, they still cant come up with a design on the stock fan that prevents the wires from hitting the actual fan...

Other Thoughts: Paired with a Samsung SSD, windows 8.1 is instant with everything....built an awesome media center/storage/hyper-v server all in a small mini itx box...

5 out of 5 eggsSolid

Pros: Performs well, lower power consumption; can run turbo for prolonged periods

Cons: Cannot overclock - I find it to be fast enough as is

Other Thoughts: Comes with heatsink/cooling fan, though I used my veteran cooler master hyper

5 out of 5 eggsSolid performer

Pros: This is really for users who don't want compromise, when it comes to day to day applications. I haven't run any games with its built-in graphics, but I'm sure it would do some lesser graphics intense games just fine. I put this on a mini-itx system with Win 8.1 (+ Classic Shell) and applications are ridiculously fast (office and IE). I built this for my grandmother. I wanted this computer to be the best for what she does; writing stories about her past, email and board games software. Is it overkill? Very much so! That's how I roll, as this will passed down to whomever in the family and be a gift of remembrance that will be relevent for years.

Cons: Not overclockable, but we all know that that isn't what this cpu is for.

Other Thoughts: This is going to knock my Gram's socks off!

5 out of 5 eggsEfficiency all around

Pros: There's nothing wrong with having something work perfectly, and knowing that you won't have to replace it for years.

Cons: Probably one of the very few times you can say there's little doubt there will be a problem. I don't foresee any, and my last Intel chip lasted almost 5 years despite meeting an unfortunate end.
