Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 24 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cheap way to 4.5GHZ installed in seconds. Went into BIOS, changed multiplier to 45 from 32, set voltage to 1.32, bored into windows, ran Prime95 Smallfft.. Stable, job done. A bargain and no mistake, running alongside 2 GTX960 in SLI with 12GB of RAM a 1080p beast. 10 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Custom PC Custom PC gave this CPU a very good write up some while ago . That is why I bought it !! 29 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic Price to Performance This chip is amazing, don't get me wrong I realise it is only 2 cores but what it is able to achieve in real world situations is breath taking. This thing runs games which is shouldn't be able too like Star Wars:Battlefront. Managed to get a stable overclock of 4.2ghz and that is me losing the silicon lottery. So if you are on a budget then this is a natural stepping stone to something better on the haswell architecture. 25 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Incredible overclock potential for budget money. I have this CPU now running all day at 4.6 Ghz rock solid stable with FurMark, with temps of 68-71c at full load. Such amazing bang for your buck. Well done Intel. 20 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by superb chip at a great price This little chip is amazing, currently running at 4.5 Ghz at 1.2v runs most top games at max GPU settings when paired with a GTX 960 4GB. Easily the best bang for buck money can buy before hitting the i5 range at almost triple the price! 14 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cant go wrong Have not tried overclocking this little gem of a cpu yet, but for the price I don't think you can go wrong - great for a 2nd or backup Pc. 08 January 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great value and performance A single core CPU is all you need for a gaming machine with some exceptions. This CPU runs OC very impressive but WARNING will not install nor boot Windows 10 unless you disable the dual core operation in the BIOS. This may be a BIOS issue but it is a know issue with this CPU . . . . . BE AWARE . . . . 29 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good fun, great value A chip to be appreciated for what it is. It's quite probably the last dual core that will be bought to build PCs. It may well be the last dual core made for the low end market given the move towards shifting the computational load onto multiple threads. It's not very powerful. It's also open to be unlocked and can be overclocked. That means that, despite debates around whether newer batches are less powerful than earlier ones, this is a chip that, if you have the inclination (knowledge really isn't necessary once you've figured out how to spell google), can easily be pushed 30% above it's stock speed. Once overclocked, that means it's a different beast entirely. A 4.2GHz+ chip at £50. Which is tremendous value. It also you means you have a cheap chip to have fun overclocking with-- ideal to learn on if you want to. It's fast enough to run all but the top end of games on good settings if that's what you're looking for If you're looking for a chip to do anything but top end gaming or processor heavy (read: graphic / video / music processing / editing) applications, then you should and will spend more. That's not what this is for. Buy it, have some fun overclocking, and enjoy it. There won't be many more. 28 November 2015
