    Super surprised this little cpu works as well as it does considering It is not overclockable. I guess ti is no surprise since it is a Haswell i5. I really like the performance especially considering it can still be picked up new for around $160 at your local Microcenter from time to time.

    Non-K. It was like $140 at MicroCenter, which was less than the 4460 I was originally planning to put in. If I pick up a 4960k on black friday or something, then I will get an NZXT Kraken CPU cooler for it.

    Quite powerful and will handle most games +60FPS paired with a decent GPU and will handle VR. Although not as efficient as Skylake

    This CPU is excellent and will last for quite some time as I found. The CPU is very fast for everyday tasks but not so much in some productivity programs. But still, on a budget this CPU is a awesome choice.

    Works great for the price and met all expectations. In hindsight, I should've gone for something with hyperthreading, but this works as advertised.

    Awesome little processor that can be found on the cheap side. Benchmarks well in today's games, but may start to show its age once games expand the 4 core mark. I would recommend this to anybody that is on their first gaming build.

    4 cores and 4 threads with plenty of power for my needs. I picked a non overclocking chip for longevity purposes. This thing is blazing fast and has great thermals thanks to the refresh. I moved from a dual core celeron so you can only imagine the power difference

    Beautifully efficient processor. The only reason I don't give it five stars is due to no overclocking potential.

    from completed build The PS5 (Client Build #2)

    Fantastic CPU, no complaints. MicroCenter (which has been mysteriously removed from PCPP as of late) had this for $159 and I got the motherboard bundled for an additional $20 off, which was a deal I couldn't refuse. In fact, most parts for this build were bought at Micro Center.

    The CPU blazes right through gaming, including games that could be classified as reasonably CPU-intensive. I haven't observed any GPU bottlenecks thus far, and of course it handles the everyday tasks such as YouTube and Skype well.

    I'm docking a star for the stock cooler, which is a little subpar in my opinion. I understand it's just a stock cooler and not to expect too much of it, but still. I could barely hear any noise at all, while temps shot through the roof-but the fan was already on max speed.

    It's what you would expect. 4 cores, 4 threads, 3.3-3.5 Ghz. Not much else to say.

    Oh yeah it's the minimum spec for VR if I can ever afford that.
