Excellent Budget CPU

Pros: For the price point there isn’t much this Little CPU can’t do, I run it with a GTX 1050 on my machine and I can run most games at decent settings. For browsing and everyday use this core is exceptional.
For light use and even decent gaming use you cannot go wrong with this core.

Cons: However despite the pros, you will more than likely see a significant dip in performance from some Triple A titles such as The Witcher 3 and Rise of The Tomb Raider. The CPU also suffers in video editing applications due to its lack of cores.

Overall Review: While being both cheap and effective, I highly recommend getting a better CPU Like the Ryzen 5 Or i5 6700k which can handle most of the above mentioned tasks with ease. But in the end it really depends what you’re going to be using it for.

Good but not great

Pros: Cheap and great for non-gaming applications. Surprisingly quiet and cool under load. Fit right into the motherboard, and the included heatsink and fan works great. Thermal paste included on heatsink. Latest cpu technologies.

Cons: Dual core performance is very limited. It can't run many applications without heavy slowdowns. Gaming is bottlenecked by cpu. Even a modern video card isn't going to turn this into a gaming rig.

Overall Review: Good for a cheap build. Latest socket let's you upgrade to better later. I'm going to probably take this cpu and turn it into a small HTPC.

Faster than the speed of Holiday lag...

Pros: Got the CPU I ordered on Saturday that following Tuesday --not too bad a turn around in shipping.
Packing and contents were inspected and found in good health.

5 Eggs for Mega Retail Store for an outstanding job concerning quality of service, content and time management.
1 Egg for NewEgg cause I wanna pick on them --it's the Holidays after all.

The CPU specs cosmetically match the chip I'm upgrading regarding speed and core count, but at a substantial savings in power consumption; it will undoubtedly excel over it's predecessor due to more current (pre kaby) architecture and optimizations.

The price is astonishing for a CPU of this speed and feature set.

Pentium have always been the meat & potatoes line so no i features like overclocking should be available --I don't overclock so I don't care.

The chip comes with a heat-sink fan combo that should be adequate with proper ventilation --using an ATX tower with the sides off so I'm satisfied. Overall, general satisfaction thus feels a 5 Eggs rating.

Cons: Should have gotten a large and small Intel Inside set of stickers instead of a single small decal; this is not a laptop chip.

Overall Review: Not a con, but more a recommendation: Intel should include a flyer in the chip's box with links to all relevant online documentation and specifications for interested/curious consumers.

Installation instructions are adequate, but wouldn't suffer greatly from a little touch up.

Excellent for basic tasks or playing media

Pros: I purchased this to go inside an ASRock DeskMini110 chassis, with the intention of replacing an aging and slowly dying Core2Duo based HTPC. It handles playback from DVD and transcoded videos just fine, and has enough oomph to handle low end games.(Artemis mostly) While I've not found a *decent* blu-ray player, once it gets through the menu, it handles playback just fine over a USB2 rated connection.

Cons: The stock cooler was a bit finicky to put on, but I blame myself as I've not done a pure scratch build like this in some time. :)

Overall Review: For basic computing purposes, this will do everything you want- web browsing, media playback, and video games that don't require an external video card. YMMV, obviously.

Wrong info in Specifications

Pros: Just wanted to point out that this processor does not support Hyperthreading , Newegg has it listed that it does in the specifications.
EDIT: I ended up purchasing this processor and have been blown away by the performance of it. My last 2 processors were a q6600 quad core and then an i5 2500k and this pentium keeps up with the i5 2500k nicely, I also do not game but do use some estimating software that is pretty taxing on a system and use Intel's quicksync to convert video files and this processor runs flawless and smooth as silk. I would recommend a ssd drive to pair with this and it should suite anyone not trying to get 60 fps from the latest Games or power an Oculus Rift Vr headset. So glad the days of having to pay $200+ for a decent processor are gone. Very good integrated graphics and overall a very snappy little processor. This pentium seems faster than the computer I use at work which has the previous generation i3 in it.

Cons: none

Low end latest technology that runs cool!

Pros: -Runs just above room temperature at idle with stock cooling
-Great for HTPC or getting "serious work done" (yeah right :P)
-Price
-Integrated graphics can drive 3 displays

Cons: I can't really dock for anything at this price point. If I wanted more computing power/overclockablity, I would have spent more.

Overall Review: Probably the fastest, cheapest processor I've bought in my life. 14nm is here.

Linux Support for Skylake not as Good as Some Claim

Pros: Other then the recently published and (probably) soon patched bug that affects all Skylake chips, it's a good CPU in theory.

It runs cooler then I expected in its tiny box with only the CPU fan to cool the entire case.

Cons: As of Aug 2016 linux support of Skylake chips is abysmal.
Even running kernel 4.6.3 I've basically had to decide what way I want to gimp this CPU to make it work at all, and it required hours of tinkering.
I can have screen tearing OR
I can have have low fps in videos OR
I can have stuttering and lockups when playing videos OR
I can have 1080p as my highest resolution.

It 'works' at 1080p, but I bought this unit to run a 4k set top PC.
EDIT: Kernel 4.7 is a massive improvement in performance for me. 4k upscaling of 1080 hecv almost works now and all the other issues are non existent.

Overall Review: I'm happy with this CPU as a budget build but I highly recommend that linux users upgrade to kernel 4.7 or higher.

Great Product

Pros: It worked out of the box without issue and it performs the task I need it to fast. I am not a big gamer and it may fall short on the more graphical games that require more cores. I am using the on board graphics with this new build. I will most likely never test its limits. This is a second computer for me for light tasks and its hooked up to my TV and audio equipment. My main machine has an i7-3770K with an at the time mid level after market graphics card. I never have really pushed the limits of this machine either. I do recommend putting your operating system on a solid state drive and mechanical drives for storage purposes only.

Cons: none for me.

Overall Review: Perfect for an office machine build. I may buy again if one of my clients needs a new machine, but most are older and speed is not necessarily a reason to upgrade.
