5 out of 5 eggsAmazing power for the price

Pros: Overclockable with the right motherboard (I hit a thermal limit around 4.1 GHz with the stock cooler). Overclocked, has unmatched single threaded performance for anything even remotely close in price.

Cons: Only 2 cpu cores, which can put it at a significant disadvantage in certain applications. This disadvantage really cannot be fully compensated by overclocking. But for the price, you can't expect the moon.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Deal Around

Pros: An inexpensive and unlocked CPU. Easily overclocked and runs at normal temps if you tweak voltage. (Currently at 4.373.10mhz and 43C). Other Pros: L3 Cache, substantial stock cooler, Haswell, the price, the performance, just a great buy. Clocked up to 4.6 and stable at uncomfortable voltages, in my opinion. See other thoughts for a happy medium I've reach so far.

Cons: Wants a lot of volts at higher speeds, not a con so much as a fact of physics.

Other Thoughts: Currently Running on this Machine at: (Hoping bring some volts down with a little fine tuning)
CPU Speed: 4373.10 Mhz
BCLK: 125mhz (For the sake of RAM, CPU multiplier with OC fine)
CPU: x35
CPU cache: x35
CPU input: 2.022v
Vcore: 1.519v
CPU cache: 1.25v
Temps: ~42 idle, Less than ~70 under normal load. 80+ under Prime95.

4 out of 5 eggsBrilliant budget CPU

Pros: I originally bought this as the base for a new system I was building and didn't plan to keep it for very long, but I must say, this little cpu has impressed me. It stays pretty cool even after a major OC, it performs very well with most games and handles light multi-tasking quite well. Now you won't be doing anything crazy on this but for entry to mid range gaming this will be plenty for most people.

Cons: There aren't really any cons with the CPU aside from some lag spikes once in a while, that could also be related to the HDD's I am currently using though.

Other Thoughts: The Rig:
CPU: Pentium G3258
RAM: Team Elite 8gb 1600MHz
MoBo: MSI Z97 PC MATE
GPU: PNY GTX 650
PSU: Thermaltake Smart 550
Case: NZXT Source 220 Windowed

5 out of 5 eggsSuper

Pros: Cool and quiet at stock speed. Easy to install HSF; thermal pad is fine for normal use. Intel HD Graphics work flawlessly in HTPC. 1333mhz memory is not a real world deficiency for normal use.

Cons: Does not come with free beer for life.

Other Thoughts: Running Ubuntu 14.04 + XBMC (Kodi). In a mobo combo the Pentium was less expensive than a 2ghz Kabini. This is way overkill for a linux HTPC. Rarely rises above 81*f and 10% cpu usage. This replaced an old dual core AMD Athlon X2-6000. The Pentium feels roughly 4x faster than the Athlon when both are running at 3.2ghz. Sigh. I liked the Athlon.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid starter for LGA1150

Pros: - Unlocked for overclocking
- Low TDP, power efficient
- My sample overclocked to 3.7GHZ on stock 1.2v

Cons: - This isn't any faster than my 3+ yr old AMD Phenom II X4 840 Quad-Core 3.2GHz.
- Two cores
- Limited to 1333 DDR3
-heatsink whines

Other Thoughts: This is the first Intel processor I have bought in a dozen years. I decided to upgrade to a new system architecture and take advantage of USB3, SATA3 as well as BIOS and power efficiency improvements. This budget CPU is a great starting point. It is not faster than my 3+ year old Phenom but is equivalent for gaming. My plan is to upgrade to an i7 in about 6 months but I didn't want to drop $600 in a system all at once. This CPU is a good placeholder to get some improvements in the system now and also allow for an easy upgrade in the future.

With the right motherboard, this CPU is a great start. As reviewed all over the internet, you can get great results from the overclock. Paired with the correct video card you can get great gaming value and obviously handle your day to day tasks. \

My only complaint is the stock Intel heatsink. It is quiet but does generate a whine as it speeds up. It is the loudest component of my system right now.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little CPU

Pros: Computing power, price/performance

Cons: Dual core only

Other Thoughts: I bought this on a combo deal with a Z97 U3 Plus MSI motherboard. 100 bucks for the deal. So keep an eye out. It's not "THE" best Motherboard of the Z97's from MSI, but this CPU is worth it! 50 bucks for this guy. I used MSI's OC genie in the BIOS to automatically OC this to 4.3 ghz with a click of a button. Using a 212 Evo cooler push pull setup.

I actually turned the OC off for now though. I've been able to do all my photoshopping, gaming, video editing, browsing without noticing much of a difference between the boost.

Running at the stock clock on this pentium is perfectly fine for normal use. I've been playing BF4, SC2, hitman absolution, and my son plays minecraft all just fine on this little guy.

This might be one my best purchases from here.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat budget computer

Pros: I bought it along with a Gigabyte H81DSV-2 board for around $75. Not only is it cheap, it's really reliable too. Overclocked to 4.1 stable at just under 1.2V, runs 37C on idle and has not exceeded 70C as of yet. It didn't kill my budget and I honestly can't tell the difference between this and my brother's i3. Integrated graphics are pretty decent, planning to buy dedicated GPU later on.

-Cheap
-Overclocks nicely (3.2 to 4.1 stable)
-Bundle gave me budget motherboard for almost nothing
-Plays League of Legends at around ~40 FPS

Cons: I can't complain- it's cheap and it overclocks. Stock speed is slow for my taste.

Other Thoughts: If you're a casual computer user that likes to play games here and there, skype, run spotify, and have around multiple tabs open, this is for you. I'll see how it runs when I have added a dedicated GPU.
