Super. Fast.

Pros: Amazing processing unit. I am a software developer (to be) and compiling, programming, gaming, this can handle it all and then some. Super good product for what I use it for and has yet to fail me in any instance.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Make sure this is supported on your custom-built personal computer. Some motherboards have certain restrictions with regard to the processing units it can handle.

Nice CPU

Pros: For it's era everything. Excellent CPU performance.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Used this some time ago for a overall family type PC for a customer. This was a few years ago and not a single issue. They use the PC for gaming as well. CPU is still very good to this day.

Fast, included heat sink not reccomended

Pros: * Lower priced than most intel i7's
* Great performance
* Don't have to purchase or install thermal paste
* included heat sink+CPU fan
* recommended for gaming
* Quality Intel support pages

Cons: * included heat sink+fan is difficult to install (see other thoughts), does not work very well once installed "properly"
* may not be the fastest processor on the market

Other Thoughts: I installed the processor with the included heat sink and the computer ran fine, for about 30-60 minutes before it "blue-screened" then would not boot up for several tries, then worked for 30-60 minutes again. I used the manufactor (Intel) site to run a diagnostic test software (stress test, temperature, power). It failed the temperature test, I refitted the heat sink and tried again five times, then I just re-installed my old heat sink+fan on this new processor and it passed. Why didn't I do that in the first place? Could have saved myself a lot of trouble.
...Why the included heat sink+fan combo is bad, is because the heat sink doesn't use screws to install into the motherboard, it uses pins instead (look up pictures of these pins if you want more information). Because of these pins, the heat sink [usually] cannot be installed firmly onto the processor. If attempted to be installed firmly, the pins tend to not hold the grip. In my experience, I could lock it down, but I could wiggle it (the heat sink).

* I' have built, assisted, observed, and taken apart multiple computers before (a dozen?).

* I chose this processor because a reputable site said this card was the most compatible with my graphics card (their stated reason being, a CPU that is too fast for the graphics card is not quite as efficient)

(if your getting the evga 650 ti ssc (company is not endorsed, but their product is important to the CPU match recommendation) I highly recommend this product)

* my performance increase was very very high, but I can only speak for myself, because I upgraded much more than just the processor in my computer.

* I will update this review along with my increased ownership.

3450 vs 3470

Pros: Ivy bridge with PCI-e 3.0 support at a reasonable price.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Researching comparing i5 chips for a new build. The i5-3450 and i5-3470 are priced the same. But, per Intel (http://ark.intel.com/compare/65511,68316 ) the 3470 supports some things the 3450 does not. Given that, if your MB choice supports the 3470, there is no reason not to go with the 3470.
