    This build was Intel preferred. the 8100 is a great choice for a budget build and provides 4 physical cores in this 8th generation series. Only gripe is the Intel Stock cooler. I didn't want to spend the extra on a cooler, but man this cooler needs an upgrade.

    A great value CPU. Good performance for a cheap price. I use it in my office PC and it works great.

    The integrated graphics allows up to 3 monitors. This is a huge pro to me

    This is the first generation of Core i3 with 4 cores & 4 threads CPU with affordable price. I choose Intel because for AMD Ryzen to get best performance, it need higher RAM speed but the price are like rocket.

    Got this in a bundle deal with the ASRock Z370M Pro4 board for $204.99 on Newegg ($194.99 AR). Does the job for now until I upgrade.

    from completed build My First PC Build!

    Absolutely amazing. I was never fond of i3 processors previous to the 8th gen launch, but this quad core is destroying everything I throw at it. I mean, I don't do any 4k video edits or VR, but just check how cheap this thing is. Great value, great CPU.

    Doubt anyone now would care about my input on this CPU (due to the countless reviews made on it), but anyway, I love this thing. Its perfect for what I need it to do. I'm not looking for a high-end workstation CPU, just something that will get the job done when it comes to gaming and school work. Great pairing with my GTX 980.

    Great value at ~$100 on sale. Gives previous gen i5 performance at bottom-of-the-barrel prices. What's not to love?
