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.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Price is the biggest part of this. The aesthetics of the case are nice. The pictures do not really show. It has a brushed aluminum with dark purple anodize "look" to it with a chrome strip framing the face. The power supply works.
Cons: For the price there are no real complaints.
Other Thoughts: The power supply is good as a replacement in a store bought computer. Not much more. The case is pretty but also light weight. The usb ports on the front are for 3.0 rating and therefore have a 3.0 plug on the end of them. It is ok though. The red, green, white, black are still the same as the 2.0 plug. I simply soldered am old plug and wire on for it to be the 2.0 style and function. The 90mm fan was louder than I like. I took it out and put a quiet rated fan in it's place. It was just what I needed to refurbish a store bough computer for my sister. It did take the extra effort to make everything work though.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: BIOSTAR H61MGV3 LGA 1155 Intel H61 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Started right up and works as advertised. The price is very good. Perfect replacement board for PC.
Cons: If there was a con, it would be that the color in the picture is not the colors on the board. The colors on the board are school buss yellow on the one that I got.
Other Thoughts: This was a very nice board for replacing a burned out board in a store bought pc. I just moved everything over to it. The plug layout is a little different than usual for the sata and usb but everything works. I have a core i3-2100 with the original heatsink and fan. 2 X 4gig original ram from the old pc. I added a GT 630 1gig and a 128gig ssd. Windows 10 64bitt. went in and works fine all around.READ FULL REVIEW
