-Bad heatsink

Overall Review: I'll start at the beginning. I bought this for a mini itx lan pc. This, combined with an as rock mobo would fit into my cooler master elite 110 along with my r7 370. This cpu was actually just a stand in cpu until I get the money to buy an i5, but honestly, it's performance is so good I might keep it around for a while. The shipping was bad, but Newegg assured me it was an isolated problem, and gave me a customer care gift card, thanks Newegg. The box was dented on every corner and there was minimal packaging inside, the cpu box was rolling around. The cpu was as a cpu should be, clean and well packaged in the box, but upon further inspection of the heatsink, I found that there is arm hair, or the other hair I shall not mention, in the pre applied thermal paste on the heat sink. Disgusting! But arctic silver quickly took its place. Now onto temps. there bad, real bad. with arctic silver and the heatsink properly placed, I'm getting 46 - 54 c IDLING. Under load it creeps up to 74 c, a little bit uncomfortable for me. Now performance. Wow. it blows my fx 4300 system out of the water, and it is oc'd to 4.3 ghz. From minecraft to rust to black ops 3, fps improved across the board. (r7 370 4gb in both systems). That is about all I have to say. Hope this review helps and have a great day!

Excellent Choice

Pros: I have used many of these for builds with Asrock mobo and a SSD. It has 4 threads (4 data highways with data moving in both directions) at 3.6Ghz.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Combine this with an Asrock Z97 board, GSkill DDR3 1600Mhz 8GB and a good SSD and everything ON and OFF the internet is instanteous. Allows you to build a fast pc for about $250.

Amazing Dual Core

Pros: Great cool running chip, very stable and powerful. Makes pretty quick work of heavy 3d animation rendering. My main work machine runs a FX-8370. The FX-8370 renders a scene at 43 seconds, this i3-4160 renders the same scene at 31 seconds. That makes the i3 a perfect very low-cost render farm option for my work.

Cons: Not easy to overclock to a full 4 GHz.

Overall Review: Yes I would recommend to others. Great low cost option for student machines or entry level gaming / 3d animation work rigs.
