5 out of 5 eggsExcellent general-use CPU

Pros: Very fast for general use / productivity tasks. Low power consumption. Runs cool, so doesn't need an expensive cooler.

Cons: I'm not going to list "doesn't overclock" just as I wouldn't complain that my car doesn't run on nitrous; I didn't buy it for that.

Other Thoughts: My Mom's Phenom II 720BE was finally getting flaky after some 6-8 years, so it was time for an upgrade. This CPU blows the old one out of the the water. She does a lot of surfing, corresponding, FB, and maintains a grandmother-sized photo collection, using PhotoShop Elements. This CPU breezes through all that.

5 out of 5 eggsHoley Smokes! This thing is awesome!

Pros: Performance for days. (Fastest-clocked Intel you can get, except the priciest i7's).
Very low power consumption and heat. (Stock cooler is perfectly adequate for this one.)
Performance for days. (This thing is a monster for gaming, especially for emulators, which are pretty heavy on the CPU)
Full HD graphics goodness. (QuickSync, top-tier 4600 graphics core, multi-display support, etc...)
Performance for days. (The crazy high clock speed makes this faux quad-core haul enough derriere to keep up with all but the most brutal of workloads)

Cons: (Obligatory stock cooler complaint) But it's not inadequate.

Other Thoughts: As a long-time computer enthusiast, I must say this little chip has thoroughly rustled my jimmies.
My main rig is an overclocked, AMD FX octa-core'd, Nvidia SLI'd, RAIDed SSD'd, triple-headed, monster workstation. And I can say from trying it out for a month that (other than video encoding) a system based around this CPU feels snappier and faster than my workstation for just about every task I do with my computer. (I'm a dev, and a gamer, so there's a lot in that list)
As mentioned, video encoding is the only thing this little i3 falls a bit short on. (It's really not that bad, it just doesn't have the cores.)
And actually, if you're okay with the quality of Intel's QuickSync video encoder, the i3 performs very well.
Because this particular i3 exists, I can not understand why anyone would pay extra for an i5.

5 out of 5 eggsIntel Core i3-4370 Haswell Dual-Core 3.8 GHz

Pros: It is fast and does a good job. The price is very good for the performance.

Cons: No cons at this time.

Other Thoughts: I like the speed and responsiveness of this processor. It does everyday computing in a flash. It is one of the fastest core i3. It has hyper threading so it behaves like a quad core. Performance monitor and device manager shows it like a quad core. It has a good score in cpu benchmark. The benchmark beats my old Phenom II 956.. impressive.

5 out of 5 eggsVery solid processor.

Pros: Great upgrade from a C2D in general.
Hyperthreading helps a lot in a lot of video games, these days.
3.8GHz is really nice.
May help with multitasking.

Cons: May see an average of 40 - 50 FPS on some games (if you're a 60 fps seeker).
Planetside 2 and other games that are allegedly CPU intensive will not work very well on this processor (the game is unoptimized beyond belief, anyways).*
Stock cooler is not very efficient when cooling under load, but it does what it has to. (I only see core temps up to 60 degrees Celsius and it seems to work too hard to keep it at ample core temperatures in my book. It also can be rather noisy while under load.)

Other Thoughts: I was skeptic about getting a Core i5-4460, which is said to be a very good quad-core intel processor, but $180 for a processor didn't seem ideal for me. I had to bite the bullet and get this Core i3-4370, but I have seen it had brought great results for most of what I need it to do. Using this processor with Hyperthreading enabled DOES help with gaming significantly (even though some people who've had i3s and other intel dual-core processors with Hyperthreading seems to swear against it for some inexplicable reason), as when I had Battlefield 4 with Hyperthreading disabled, I noticed PLENTY of stuttering on the loading screen(s) and while in game, especially in multiplayer.

* I have not tested this CPU on Grand Theft Auto V, but I may or may not purchase the game. Planetside 2 may still work most of the time around 30 - 40 FPS, especially in a big fight. GTX 960 in general can always help remedy most of your problems 70% of the time in games like that. Remember to always spend your money on what you need your computer to do.

Other suggestions I have are if you are in need of a decent processor and maybe the Pentium G will not do justice for you. This is a good processor to start on. If you cannot afford it at this price point, there are Core i3s in the same line that are cheaper, but have slower clock speeds. If you need a cheaper Core i series processor for video gaming, I highly insist you get this processor over the Pentium G3258 (though not Core i series, but hear me out), which is around $70, and the Core i5-4460, which is just around $180, not counting tax. Note that the Pentium G3258 may be cheaper, but I have seen results posted online that prove the Pentium G3258 is really weak and underpowered as far as gaming performance goes.

5 out of 5 eggsawesome little i3

Pros: fast snappy processor that is priced great. 3.8 ghz kills everydayd applications and programs.

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: works fast and and the Intel hd graphics can do casual gaming. Run league of legends, minecraft, and cs go just fine. Runs everyday applications smoothly and I have experience no hiccups having lots of chrome tabs open. Don't rule this processor out just cause it's an i3, it can still hold it's own with productivity and gaming on a budget.

5 out of 5 eggsperfect cpu for a itx build

Pros: I have always stuck with i5/k cpu's and went with this i3 for my latest build, a itx build. Temps are low, even in a limited air flow case. Performance is nearly as good (see other thoughts).

Cons: not a true multitasker

Other Thoughts: As another reviewer wrote, it is a great cpu for Plex media server. BUT, I have had a few games crash while having the Plex server running. Disabling Plex fixes game crash issues.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat price per performance

Pros: Great for Business apps.

Cons: not a true multitasker

Other Thoughts: Very satisfied with this processer. WE stepped up from the Pentium and are pleased with the performance of this processer for handling standard Office tasks.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Very Good CPU

Pros: This is the best i3 processor out there.
On my system, the whole setup consumes 36W while idle, it is clearly a very good choice for a mini server.
The passmark of the cpu is just great for most applications.

Cons: I think the pricepoint is a bit too high and Intel is to be blamed for this.

Other Thoughts: Ideal processor for a Plex Media Server installation.

5 out of 5 eggsCheaper than a XEON

Pros: This was a compromise from a XEON processor. I needed a processor that had some very basic graphics for install of operating system and would support ECC memory. System has been running for about 8 months 24/7 without any problems.

Cons: Non that I can tell.

Other Thoughts: This fits the bill. Installed on an ASRock E3C224D2I motherboard running FreeNAS-9.3-STABLE with 4 HGST Ultrastar 4GB SATA drives with 16GB ECC memory. Case is a Fractal Design Node 305. Everything was a tight fit, but it works.

Some people have stated that it will overheat so I installed a Noctua NH-U12S cooler and have no problems even under heavy loads
