This is a LGA1156 CPU that offers good value when it comes to building a budget pc. Considering how low the price of this CPU is, I think this is a real good CPU.(if u are looking for lga 1156 cpus and u are on a budget, then buying first gen cpu isn't a good choice due to the high price, X3430,X3450 and X3470 is the best choice)

Crazy but clocked at 3.8 on all cores it is still damned fast and £15 on the bay coupled with a gtx 770, i'm impressed.

price/performance for lga1156

It's the best performer for the old, old Socket H1/LGA 1156, and it's useful for turning an old SFF (let's say, like an HP Compaq Elite 8100), into a gaming system (if you're insane enough), or into a little server useful for small things like Minecraft! It's a great buy if you want to modernize a LGA 1156 system since it's around $15 today. Just remember it doesn't have integrated graphics.
