Works really fast when compressing files that I send over to clients. Helps save a lot of time.
This is an incredible CPU. Bought it back in 2012 and haven't considered upgrading it since then. I run F@H which uses almost 100% of the CPU and yet I still have a very responsive system that I can use for web browsing and watching videos. I managed to get mine to 4.0 GHz with no voltage increase whatsoever.
CPU: caught a deal at microcenter for around $200 i think. super fast, and clocked to 4.4GHz
We all know how good these things are. Me adding my two cents isn't going to change that.
This has been my first good Intel build. I love that I can easily overlock it with the MSI mobo and it has way exceeded my expectations.
An oldie but a damn goodie. Blazing fast for what I need!
Still running after so long, been kept at 4.2Ghz while in the Asus P8Z77-I Deluxe, now pushed to 4.3Ghz with the Gigabyte mobo.
Definitely worth the money back then, definitely worth the value you would find it now as used.
First released in 2012 and still going strong almost 5 years later.
Overclocks easily with a 3rd party cooler .
For how old it is and the song I picked it up for, this is a great proc. I just wish I had a mobo that could overclock it.
