5 out of 5 eggsSecond review

Pros: -720p ,1080p Youtube
-fast, good
-renders some videos on sony vegas, not to long for dual core.

Cons: this is only a con if you are a gamer and can spend more money. this is a great chip but i recommend you go with 4 cores as this one is only duel (2) core. I came back to right a second review just to put it out there that this chip will not be able to play a lot of new games, tried it on dragon age inquisition, fifa 15, witcher 3 and some others. If you dont want to be blocked by this fact at this time I recommend you spend 50-100$ more and get a better 4 core processor. But I still love the chip because I have used it for over a year, and can play most games paired with my 750 ti.

Other Thoughts: happy with purchase, was meant to kill time and work until i can upgrade to a gaming cpu.

5 out of 5 eggsEntry-Level Haswell

Pros: -Affordable
-Integrated Graphics
-Ready to go

Cons: This isn't really a con but when I first put my build together and booted up the cooler was making a lot of noise. Opened the case and noticed that one of the fans wires was making contact with a fan blade. Make sure the cable isn't making contact and you are good to go

Other Thoughts: Thought I'd do a review since I found myself shopping for the successor to my Pentium. I bought the Pentium at the time as an entry-level Haswell proc in an HTPC build that I planned to slowly upgrade into a mid to high level PC. I have been really impressed with the value I've squeezed (and could continue to squeeze if needed) out of it. I started with just mobo, 4gb ddr3 1333, 1TB mechanical hard drive, and this processor with stock cooler. Used it for streaming video mainly, web-browsing, and light gaming. The on-board graphics is actually capable in it's own right if you are playing older games. I never tried anything seriously modern on it because,'s on board graphics haha Since my purchase I've added an additional 4gb of ram bringing my total to 8gb, a blu-ray drive, and a 1gb GT 740. I own too many games to really go through and test them all but it seems to handle everything I throw at it maxed out on 1080p with the exception of anti-aliasing in some of the more modern games. Examples of games I play are Fallout 3/New Vegas, PAYDAY 2, Fable Anniversary, SIM CITY, Tropico 5, NBA 2k15, Max Payne 3, GTA IV, etc. Games that are more processor bound like modern strategy games with lots of units on screen as well as detail are the only ones that seem to slow it down but can't knock an egg for that!

Basically, I bought this processor expecting to mainly use it for my HTPC and found out how far it can really push my games. The ONLY reason I am upgrading my processor is because I am now running dual displays. When I try to stream/watch HD videos as well as game, run background programs, etc. performance can stutter but it's to be expected. If you are not playing NEW/graphic intensive games, multi-tasking, multi-display or using programs that utilize more then one core you can not go wrong using this processor as a starting point.

Current build:
-8gb G.Skill Ripjaws 1333
-AsRock B85M Pro4 LGA 1150
-Nvidia GeForce GT 740 1gb GDDR5 128-bit
-Intel G3220
-2x1TB WD Blue WD10EZEX

5 out of 5 eggsGreat buy

Pros: Entry level 1150 proc at less than $60 bucks. Runs cool with no heat issues (used to have a house fan running over my old LGA 775 board). A few weeks in and not a glitch to speak of.

Cons: None yet. It's done everything I've asked of it so far.

Other Thoughts: The Intel installation booklet that comes with it is laughable. There are literally no real written instructions; just illustrations and a link to the Intel site.

5 out of 5 eggsIntel tryout.

Pros: After running AMD chips for years, I decided to try an Intel upgrade set up. So far I am impressed with the numbers. Assembled a Z87 gaming rig using this chip and a H60 corsair cooler. The numbers are impressive for a 3.0Ghz. Entry chip. ESO, GTA V, and Skyrim all on Ultimate. Using the same 2gig HD 6970 as with the AMD. Increased the fps to 50 across the board. very nice.

Cons: No real cons as I am not planning on an O.C, once the prices on the Haswell "k's" drop might upgrade and o.c then. AMD'S never had a lock. Intel should follow suit.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect for a low-cost server.

Pros: Works without issues in NAS4Free and FreeNAS.

Speed rating is a nice round number.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Using this in a NAS4Free build, it handles 4 drives in RAIDZ2 and SMB without breaking a sweat.

Transfer speeds average 100MB/s over a crossover cable.

5 out of 5 eggsSuper bargain, to the rescue!

Pros: Fast Fast fast!
Easy to install.
Doesn't get hot.
One hell of a price for this much power. also 60 bucks isnt that much anyways.
and it comes with everything you need to install it ( manual , cord and pre applied thermal paste)

it can play league of legends on high settings, no problem.

Cons: It doesn't have any cons for me to add to the con list.

Other Thoughts: I combined this with a gtx 750 TI and 8gb of ram, and it can play any game at 60fps if your settings are low. and can play many games at max settings with 60fps.

I bought this for league of legends and it plays it perfectly. It can even play bf4 smoothly if on minimal settings.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent CPU

Pros: Fast delivery.
Low priced, powerful CPU that is being used in a new build for a customer.

Cons: There are no cons.

Other Thoughts: Used this for a new build for a customer.
With the 120 gb SSD and 4 gb of DDR3 RAM, Windows starts in 9 seconds to the desktop! All apps pop open so fast, they can hardly get out of their own way.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Flawlessly

Pros: Runs cool, lower power consumption.

Cons: Not the fastest CPU in the world.

Other Thoughts: The specs are well documented. Benchmarks can be easily had. You should know exactly what you are getting. That being said, this CPU has been working flawlessly in my FreeNAS server for months.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great processor for the price, and I'd wager more than enough for like 90% of the computing population out there that simply wants to read e-mails, surf the web and watch Netflix or what not, quietly, cheaply, efficiently.

I'm using mine in a FreeNAS build, on a SuperMicro X10SLM+-F board. Absolutely lovely for that purpose. The step up for me would be the Xeon series, but I didn't need that level of processing power, and honestly, for the vast majority of FreeNAS users, I'd say the same applies.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: I've heard mixed reviews about those stock Intel coolers. Myself, I just about never use a stock cooler - always aftermarket. Since they've come to the North American market, my choice is almost always Be Quiet! hardware.
