Review Date: 03/26/15
Cons: None

Pros: Price and performance
I am very impressed with this CPU! I bought it during boxing day sales for $65 CND and I don't regret it one bit! I have a couple builds with, AMD 8350, AMD 6300 and an I5 2400, and when it comes to gaming this keeps up to all of those! I only wish they would stop raising the price so I can buy a couple more!!

Review Date: 03/06/15
Cons: None, had to price match to get best deal

Pros: Cheap! Fast, overclocks!
Used this to build a basic machine for my folks. Paired with the ASRock Z97 anniversary edition MB it was easy to overclock to 4.0Ghz on the stock cooler! Entire machine (excluding monitor, KB, Mouse) was under $300 taxes in! Great deal, would recommend to others and may build one for my self.

Review Date: 02/16/15
Cons: Very weak multithreaded performance.

Pros: Cheap, very good single threaded performance.
I love this little cpu. Runs great at 4ghz. Very good for most games, but those that require a few cores will make it struggle. Overall I recommend it.

Review Date: 01/15/15
Cons: sometimes not easy to overclock

Pros: Inexpensive, can be easy to overclock
This chip can overclock very easy I got mine to 4.2 just with multiplier increase but once I tried to go higher it takes a fair bit of voltage and settings tweaks, but there are many that run at 4.8 ghz with the right settings. works great for single threaded games, allows for easy upgrade path to 4690k or 4790k in the future if needed so the cost of experimenting with it is low. Research your motherboard choice before purchasing, all current motherboards with allow this to overclock with a bios update, but not all boards will have as many tweaks in the bios to make it stable.

Review Date: 01/07/15
Cons: some new games are incompatible

Pros: cheap and unlocked
Dragon Age Inquisition and Far Cry 4 require 4 cores or 4 threads (i3) so I had to return and buy a different cpu in order to play them. Warning, new games are coming without 2-core support.

Review Date: 01/07/15
Cons: my processor did not on as well as others it gets to 4.0 ghz but then becomes very unstable and wont go past post but thats just my experience

Pros: kinda fast cheap unlocked
cheap kinda fast but be aware not all will oc very well

Review Date: 12/24/14
Cons: nothing so far

Pros: great, easily oc-able, not too hot with stock cooler
runs 70 degrees under load clocked at 3.8ghz

Review Date: 12/18/14
Cons: 2 core

Pros: Cheap, just what i needed for budget computer
work as intended

Review Date: 12/10/14
Cons: It does not Multi-Task Well.

Pros: Best bang for the Buck if you looking for a cheap gaming CPU, Overclocked to 4.4 on Stock Cooler.
The best thing to say about this chip, is it will allow you to get setup into a very cheap gaming system and is a stepping stone if you want to upgrade into a higher end chip. Make note this CPU does one task very very well. It will not handle Gaming and Streaming. It is just too much for it. I have tested every way to make it play games and stream. IT will do it somewhat with the quicksync. It is very cool that a 75 dollar chip has quick sync and a very good version of it too. Understand though if you are going to try and stream with this chip. The output of the stream will be very very pixeled. But for what it is, it is amazing. a 75 dollar chip that you can overclock to 4.4 with ease on a stock cooler. This CPU will easily go to 4.8 on an good Air cooler or water.

Review Date: 10/29/14
Cons: Dual Core (but that doesn't seem to hold it back)

Pros: Cheap! Unlocked! Haswell!
Intel slipped this little bit of goodness in for us and took me back twenty years to my early overclocking days. If you want something to play with or for an HTPC or just some fun, this is the perfect chip. Pair it with a low cost motherboard (I used the ASUS B85M-E) and just enjoy. Did I say this was a fun piece of hardware?

Cons: None so far

Pros: Low price for an unlocked cpu
Awesome cpu with low price and it's unlocked although I'm ashamed to say I haven't overclocked it, this being my first build I am comfortable with the current performance once i need more or learn more about overclocking I might overclock it.

Review Date: 10/09/14
Cons: None

Pros: Unlocked for Overclocking
This is an awesome CPU for a budget gaming computer. Paired mine with a GTX 760 and can run anything that I'd like with high-ish settings. Hit 4.8ghz on air. I wish Intel would unlock more of their processors like this.

Review Date: 09/15/14
Cons: memory clock a bit slow. only 1333

Pros: Excellent cpu and overclocks well. very fast for normal use.
Pair it with a cheap Asrock H81 motherboard (You don't need z97 board) and overclock to 4.4 Mhz with core voltage 1.2v. CPU is still nice and cool. It is very good for Dolphin emulator as I don't need a $200 I5 for this. Playing Mario Galaxy nice and smooth with my ancient 8800gt card. Web broswing and boot up time is lighting fast. Will get more when it is cheaper.

Review Date: 08/13/14
Cons: none, its great

Pros: affordable and cheap for htpc set up
this is a no brainer, this is perfect with the asrock 20th anniversary mobo and you can use this as a HTPC build. Its perfect

Review Date: 08/10/14
Cons: nothing

Pros: easy to Overclock, price good
Excellent CPU pour bencher et OC que du plaisir les température sont convenable et le processeur fournie très bien en jeu.

Review Date: 08/01/14
Cons: None for what it is.

Pros: Price, Unlocked overclocking goodness.
Pair this up with one of ASUS' unlocked lower end boards (bios updates enable overclocking of this processor) and you should be able to rock an OC well over 4G that'll do pretty well on applications that don't take advantage of multiple threads.Early days, but without any work at all I was able to set 4G and run prime on stock cooling with max 76c after 20 minutes. Still working on the water loop so that's as far as I've pushed it so far.This is in the same vein as the early e1200 chips they released which had insane overclocking overhead. Buy one just for S&G and enjoy.

Review Date: 07/28/14
Cons: None

Pros: Little power house when overclocked
For the cost of this cpu this is an excellent value. Have the cpu clocked to 4.3Ghz with the included stock cooler. Could push it further but happy for now. Using it for a low budget gaming rig and i can play any of the latest games with no problem. For the cost and overclock ability of this cpu Im giving it 5 stars.

Review Date: 07/17/14
Cons: none so far

Pros: great overclockable processor
very good performance with a 4.7 overclock your results may vary.
