Intel Pentium G3258 Haswell Dual-Core 3.2 GHz LGA 1150 53W BX80646G3258 Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Unlocked
Haswell cores

Cons: No hyperthreading

Other Thoughts: I have mine at 4.5GHz (1.23v) with the ASRock anniversary motherboard and a cooler master hyper 212.

It doesn't have many of the features of higher end intel CPUs, but it's very cheap for an unlocked CPU, so no complaints here.

ASRock Z97 Anniversary LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Easy to overclock with the Pentium g3258
Good BIOS interface
USB 3.0 header compatibility
Good layout
Plenty of space for other PCI/PCIe things
Lots of SATA and USB ports
Good price compared to other z97 chipsets

Cons: No SLI/Crossfire support

Other Thoughts: I have this paired with the anniversary Pentium. It's very easy to overclock with this specific CPU, because you can just turn on the auto-overclock, and adjust the clock rate higher yet to your liking in the BIOS as high as you want it.

This is a new board, and it has everything you want (HDMI, USB 3.0, etc). It may not be suited for high end enthusiasts though, because it doesn't support SLI/Crossfire.

Intel Core i3-3220 Ivy Bridge Dual-Core 3.3 GHz LGA 1155 55W BX80637i33220 Desktop Processor                                                                                   Intel HD Graphics 2500
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Runs cool
Consumes little power
Has hyperthreading for multitasking

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: This CPU is surprisingly good for gaming. Does pretty well on large BF4 servers, even though it's not a quad core.
