Sommaire: 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.
Sommaire: I use for vmware mainly and it works perfectly. my gaming is a bit suckish with the intel hd 2000 graphics though. i have yet to use all 4 cores running google chrome, Microsoft security essentials av scan set to 50 percent max, jdownloader, and portal. pretty good
flat out beastly for the cost(O'C to 4.6ghz on air)

Sommaire: 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.
Sommaire: 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.
Sommaire: 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.
