Great CPU for the money. So far it has handled everything I've thrown at it. The usage is pretty high in some games and the FPS are pretty low in Firemark's physics test (under 24). But in game and everyday use has yet to flummox the 4440
Not the fastest or the fanciest of the Haswell i5 lineup, but it was priced right and has met my needs well.
Good CPU. It may not be the best i5 but it does the job.
I think this is the weakest part of my system, i will probably upgrade to an 4690k and overclock it, and give this one to my younger brother when he decides to build his own.
Why i dont like it: it lags when i play Rome Total War maxed settings with huge units and 2 players! (keep in mind this game is from 2004.) It lags to 20 frames /s.
Not the best price - performance ratio but it do the job. I use it mostly for gaming and video editing and it has been able to work pretty well on those occasions
Very good workhorse. In gaming its only 3-4fps slower than a i74790k
