5 out of 5 eggsA parents build

Pros: Paired with ASUS Z97-C for a parents build. No GPU needed. Runs cool with just two 120mm fans in mid-tower. Great for surfing, video streaming, and fast desktop performance.

Cons: Not the K version which can be over clocked. Not really a CON unless your looking to over clock.

No hyper threading if you need it.

Other Thoughts: "S" runs cooler than the regular version due to lower TDP.

Spend another $30 if your not on a budget and get the K version.

5 out of 5 eggsFast, cool-running, zero hassle

Pros: I got this for my gaming rig after it looked like the 4790 was no great shakes. With a Corsair closed loop cooler, the hottest I've seen the CPU has been 52 degrees C.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsCool, Stable and Fast

Pros: - Extremely cool
- Fast

Cons: - Not a 'K' version with a 65W TDP (not really a negative)

Other Thoughts: Just like above, I got this processor for the 65W TDP. It runs incredibly cool and doesn't even break 45C running high end games or software.

AMD Fan Note: I use to be a complete AMD fan. I owned AMD CPU's and GPU's since the Athlon & ATI days. My last build was an AMD FX 8350 and AMD 7950. I can tell you from experience, both ran incredibly hot and I was continually experiencing issues with my 7950 after 1 year of owning it. The AMD FX 8350 is a huge power hog and was based on a 32nm process - which I don't necessarily mind but nowadays I prefer cooler components for longevity.

5 out of 5 eggsNice, low-power, fast processor

Pros: Low power 65W part. Quad core. 3.5GHz Turbo at4-core loading with 3.9GHz Turbo at single core loading. Mac OS X compatibility.
Just as fast or faster in every regard compared to the AMD CPU it replaced.
Intel Enhanced Speed Step worked as advertised. CPU idles at 800MHz and boosts up to 3.5-3.9 GHz depending on CPU loading. Compared to the AMD system it replaced, the computer uses 50-75W less power overall and idles at 50W compared to 90W.

Cons: Didn't make me breakfast. Doesn't overclock. Doesn't have hyperthreading. I understand that this CPU didn't have those features nor did I care to pay extra for them.

Other Thoughts: Good CPU for all circumstances. I picked this part specifically because I wanted a lower power (65W) CPU, quad core, and didn't need Hyperthreading nor did I want to overclock it. This CPU is cheaper than the K version. My build was focused around a stable digital audio workstation running Mac OS X and mild gaming under Windows. With this CPU I've accomplished my goals.

I used a Gigabyte GA-B85-HD3 motherboard. The CPU worked right out of the box, but I did update the BIOS after regardless.

The CPU is a replacement for an AMD Phenom II X4 965BE. Comparing this Intel to the AMD in my games (Skyrim and X-Plane) I didn't see a big improvement. Maybe a few FPS. Both games ran very well on the AMD processor.

The biggest reason I went with the Intel was for Mac OS X compatibility and low power draw. In that frame of reference, the Intel CPU works just as fast or faster in every task and still allowed me to install Mac OS X without any issues. My overall computer system power draw is 50-75W less. Even under full load my peak power draw is 200W compared to 278W for the AMD system. The CPU fan (Cooler Master EVO 212) runs at idle speed (about 700 rpm) unless I'm running a CPU benchmark, then it speeds up to 850 rpm. In other words, it's completely silent. The system temperature is about 5-10 degrees cooler, and the fans stay at idle (which they did in the AMD system). CPU never overheats and I've managed to top the temperature out at about 50 C.

My GPU temperatures went up a bit, and I believe this is because the CPU can feed more data to the GTX 660Ti compared to the AMD. This also explains why I get more fps and slightly higher gaming performance.

Overall I am happy with this CPU. I can run Mac OS X now and still maintain my Windows install to play games at a high level of performance.
