Perfectly reliable. So speedy that my GTX 1050 bottlenecked it.


3 days ago.

it is still a very capable cpu, from gaming to editing and even some server work, been running it for a while on my server and it has been really fast and reliable, not a single issue with it, really good performance/dollar ratio, although a i7 5700 is a better choice, i think, you can get them cheaper but it's a little bit harder to find tho.

normal CPU not for high grapics but for light gaming is corret .

It's not that expensive, and it's doing its job well! Sure the i5 6600k may be better. But more expensive. so if you are trying to save money but don't want a pc that can't do anything, buy this processor. (Or anything else, i just prefer this,)

bought with a gtx1070 and is not really compatible


10 months ago.

IPC has greatly improved since the first gen. The only point where it's lacking is in it's number of core where it has only 2 cores and 4 threads.

expensive..... but it does the job

It's fast, economic and maybe isn't the best but is something to buy and be happy
