Pros:

3.5 ghz. hyperthreading...
hd4600 graphics.
pcie 3.0 graphics, on those motherboards that support it.
runs like half of a i7-4770!
runs amazingly with a gtx680 and a H87 motherboard.
magical!.
saves you 100 dollars over a similiar i5.

Cons:

can get hot.

people assume that it is weak... NOT.

Other Thoughts:

it does seem counterintuitive that an i3-4330 has the same performance as i5, but on games it does! (of course with a strong graphics card, gtx 680 or higher)

my experience with this processor is in an asus h87i-plus(0905 bios) and a gigabyte h87n-wifi (f4 bios, and f7 bios) with EIST off.

when paired with a zotac gtx680amp!, power target 132%, and w/c, runs every game at great FPS on ultra, on high amazing!... (crysis, crysis3, tomb raider, bioshock: infinite, metro 2033)

make sure that the h87 bios is not the newest (asus 0905, gigabyte f4) because updating the bios to the "haswell update" can Possibly slow down your frame rate score in firestrike graphics test 1.

while the physics score is higher on a i5, the graphics score is the same on a i3-4330.

i am amazed at how this processor can compete with an i5-4690!
