The best CPU you can get for a killer gaming computer, it does it all. True, you cant overclock it, but the power it already has will give anyone 70 fps+ at any game with a capable GPU.


Terrible

low perfomance for that price

Brilliant performance for low powered ITX future proof gaming

I think the performance is impressiv for gaming as well as other stuff. It has very good thermals if you count in the performance it gives. Also you can overclock it with a z170 mainboard which makes it a great deal.
