I love this CPU. I bclk'd it to 4.52 ghz with a cryorig m9i air cooler and it runs solid. It requires the lowest increase in blck (only 119) to reach 4.5ghz of all the i3's, which I believe makes it easier on the rest of the system to take the overclock. My temps peak at 61c at a 1.29v vcore and idle at 28c.
