Great CPU if you are on a budget and looking to get more performance out of you aging LGA1366 machine. A great crop-in replacement on most motherboards for a first gen i5 or i7, i would recommend to anyone looking for a $30 CPU.

Great Cpu, great price value. You can get this one for around 80 €. Using this as my new CPU in a HP z800 Workstation with GTX 1650. There are no huge bottlenecks and it runs games that it should not be able to run, like "Rise of Tomb Raider". Great CPU!
