Amazing performance for a low-end modern processor.

Pros: - Paired with a z370 prime, pro4 or any other basic gaming motherboard, along with 16 GB of ram will let you play modern games such as Monster Hunter World, CS:GO, and even DOOM at lower settings.
- The price is a great entry point for those on a budget to create a gaming pc.

Cons: - Not as good a value as an i5 (if you have the money)
- Requires specific 8th gen supporting motherboards, which means you probably have to buy one instead of using it to update old rigs.

Other Thoughts: It is amazing what these modern processors can do, I don't see anything wrong with this if you are on an extreme budget, have had no issues running high-end games on medium to high settings, but would advise to not buy if you are trying to be competitive. An i5 may be a better purchase for competitive gaming.

OK but not all that

Pros: OK value for under $120. Should you use the UHD 630 graphics it helps make it a good value.

Cons: In these days of Spectre Meltdown patches, I can see why Intel is calling what used to be an i5 an i3...or why they are calling the 8600K an i5. There is a lot more wheel-spinning going on than before. This thing is shy a few clock speed bins to be an appreciable gamer both in CPU and in cache. You certainly do not want to pick this one for any modern content creation unless you are very very patient (as in waiting days!!)! My sample really wasn't running all that cool considering it was only chugging along at 3.6 ghz.. my guess is that if you 'were allowed' to overclock, it would get hot pretty fast . that being said, the provided cooler was completely adequate to keep it under 55* or so full out.

Other Thoughts: for what its worth some memory overclocking was easily achievable, pretty much like Skylake Kabylake K-Series chips could.
I had a 7350K once and that blew this thing out of the water!

great quad core for the price

Pros: -sips voltage (0.6 at idle and 1.1 under load)
-box cooler actually does it's job (even with fan speed at 50%)
-never gets hot
-great starter CPU for 300 series chipset
-great CPU for Asrock Deskmini
-plays any AAA title game fine
-previous gen i3-7100 has two less physical cores

Cons: -wish it had a turbo setting
-6mb L3 instead of the 8mb like the 8300
-ring ratio is at 33x (can be bumped to 36x on certain motherboards)
-previous gen i3-7100 single core performance was better (but clocked at 3.9ghz)

Other Thoughts: I've been buying these for DeskMini builds (the newer h310 chipset) and really like the fact you can get a quad core for right near 100 bux. It never get's hot even with the box cooler (53c under load for 30 mins). Also started using this CPU for budget gaming builds on b360 motherboards (with 16 gigs of ram, price is around 300 bux). that's a great deal for someone with an older setup but has a decent GPU already.

Big step up from my old Core2 Quad.

Good for the price.
Usefull for 1080p gaming.

Cons: Sometimes, it bootlenecks with 1060 6Gb, but still very solid for 60Fps at 2018 games max settings.

best bang for the buck. thank you AMD

Pros: 4 cores for 114 yes sir thank you sirr
pair with 3600mhz ram and 1070 = AC odyssey on ultra high 1440p
runs super cool doing it too, i'm a noise sensitive so i need my silence, i thought i need to slap a noctua cooler but the stock cooler is more than adequate. only change i made was using a noctua thermal paste instead of the stock ones.

Cons: when installing games all cores shot up to 100 percent leaving all other task including browsing impossible. maybe this is where HT would've helped out.

Other Thoughts: this is a nice little chip for a stop gag if you want to upgrade to 8700k or 9700k later down the road but dont have the money for it like me :D
test comparison in gaming doesn't really show much fps difference from 8th gen i5 and i7.
