Awesome bang for the buck


Quick and responsive. It handles just about anything I throw at it. I built my computer as a work station for my adobe products. Everything renders very quickly and efficiently... computer never gets hung up. I'm not much of a gamer, but I occasionally...

Stock cooler isn't terrible, but it's not great. I popped an evo 212 on there just in case and the temperature dropped 5 degrees in just the idle alone

Fast CPU


If you don't need the on board video of the i7, no need to spend the additional $$... get this CPU!

It's an Intel i5... it rocks! Runs cool with the stock fan, so no additional $$ for an after market fan

Blazing Fast-Good Overclocker-Perfect for Gaming


If you're building your first system, then go right on ahead.

Picked up this i5 when my old Z77 board failed earlier this year. Since no stores in town carried those boards anymore, I had to go Z97 and ditch my 3570k in the process since I couldn't afford any downtime. I then picked up the 4690k. Can't say it's a...

My only complaint was the price, but I can't blame Intel for that since I was in a pinch and couldn't wait for a new Z77 board to ship out to me. If you have an Ivy Bridge cpu, I wouldn't recommend going Haswell, the cost isn't worth the marginal...

5th purchase of I5 used in ASUS Maximus VI Gene mobo works great no problem

I ordered a number of components and when the box arrived there was very little packing material. Also the Intel box had been ripped opened, but after inspecting the fan and processors they seemed to be in the original containers I thought immediately...

Great Processor


Overall glad I bought this processor

Price, speed of processor, can handle most games with ease. I have used four of these for builds and they all work great

I would highly recommend aftermarket cooling, because it does run hot

Great Processor


Great performance and it overclocks nicely. It can run a little hot with just an air cooler but with my AIO cooler it stays pretty cool

I get occasional stutters, but I am not sure if it is my SSD or my CPU, both test fine

Great Pro


This was a nice upgrade from my previous AMD processor of 2 years, it made a huge difference all around with gaming and general speed of my rig.

Performance(Fast) ; Great for gaming ; 1 Year and still going like new

Price is a bit high

Perfect Gaming Processor


Fight the itch! You don't need the best CPU out there. You seriously don't. Humble yourself and get a CPU that can handle what you plan to throw at it. Don't take a yacht fishing in a pond ; Fast, Inexpensive, Widely Supported. If you are building a...
