Zusammenfassung: I must start off by saying that I have run nothing but AMD processors for the last 10 years in each one of my setups. This processor had high reviews from all of my peers while I recieved nothing but negative reviews from the AMD counterparts.
Zusammenfassung: wanted to upgrade my computer, done some research and found that the intel i5 and intel i7 processors have very little different in them, apart from the huge price. very please and very easy to fit.
Zusammenfassung: Great CPU, super fast and the i7 doesn't seem £100 more worth it. But each to their own. It's a "k"/unlocked cpu so overclocking is easy, almost too easy. Water cooling would be essential but one could get 4.2GHz apparently from this little beast.
flat out beastly for the cost(O'C to 4.6ghz on air)

Zusammenfassung: Bought one of these from Amazon to go in my new gaming rig. I got it overclocked to 4.6 ghz with a Coolermaster Hyper 212+ air cooler. I love how it slows it self down when its idle. I paired it with a GTX 560 and i can play Skyrim on ultra at 1920 x 1080 with around 50 fps.
Zusammenfassung: With intelligent performance that accelerates in response to demanding tasks, such as playing games and editing photos, the Intel Core i5 processor moves faster when you do.The Intel Core i5 processor automatically allocates processing power where it's needed most.
Zusammenfassung: I bought this processor to build a new gaming rig. I have bought over 20 of these as they are the most sought after processor in the market today! For gaming useage and value, there is none better in todays market.
