    Great processor, perfect for an HTPC, May 13, 2011

    This is a dual core processor clocked at 3.1GHz, Bought this for a HTPC build, was combined with 4GB of DDR3, a Biostar H61MH motherboard, 1TB HDD and an IOGear wireless keyboard. The computer is really fast and works great as a HTPC, its plugged into our 42″ LCD using the HDMI port at 1080p. The video looks great even though the motherboard doesn’t have a dedicated video card/chip. I’ve even played movies on XBMC while ripping a video at the same time, without any problems. All our videos (mkv and avi) look great, so does Hulu desktop. I haven’t run any benchmarks but I do know that it rips videos about 50% faster than my Core2Duo Macbook pro.

    The processor was well packaged and easy to install. With only a 65W power consumption, it seems to run cool all of the time, only heard the fan speed up while installing the OS. The fan that came with the processor seems more than enough and quiet, though I did use Artic Silver 5 thermal compound with my build. The other thing I really like is how you don’t need an additional graphics card, keeps the cost lower and also reduces power consumption indirectly. Note: this can’t be over-clocked.

    All in all, a great CPU, highly recommended. Will probably install Ubuntu 11.04 soon, will update the review then, especially if there are any problems.

    HOLY CRAP I LOVE THIS CHIP, June 29, 2011

    There is so much hype surrounding the i5-2500k that most other chips get overlooked. This is one of those gems.

    For starters, this is a FAST processor. 3.1GHz w/a 3MB L3 cache. That is QUICK. Plus, it is a dual core (most programs & games cannot even use quad core, so why bother?) and it has hyper-threading, so it actually seems that it’s quad core. It’s built on a 32nm technology which makes it one of the most power efficient processors available. On top of all this, it runs SO unbelievably cool, that I still have a hard time believing the temperatures in my case.

    It has some graphics stuff inside of it that I still don’t fully understand, but I guess that is awesome.

    Cons: It does not have the ability to be overclocked. If you want to overclock, the i5-2500k is for you. If you want a very nice system, with a cool-running, inexpensive chip, then GET THIS. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.

    Final thoughts: I think that this latest build is the best computer that I’ve ever owned. I am so thoroughly impressed with every aspect, including Amazon’s incredibly fast shipping and packaging.

    Cheap but powerful, March 21, 2011
    This review is from: Intel Core i3-2100 Processor 3.1GHz 3 MB Cache Socket LGA1155 (Personal Computers)

    I built a SandyBridge gaming rig last month. I chose the Core i3-2100 as a cheap option to see if it would be great for games such as (StarCraft 2, Crysis, Crysis 2, Burnout Paradise, Left 4 Dead 2.) I am very impressed at the performance level this processor offers. First the Benchmark. I used Passmark Performance Test 7. The score was 4,472. Compare that to my Core i5 based MacBook Pro which was 2,367. So far I have yet to push the limits of this processor. I would Highly Recommend this processor over any AMD for low budget gaming.

    The Specs of my gaming rig

    Intel Core i3-2100
    8GB of DDR3-1600Mhz RAM
    Asus P8P67 Deluxe
    Geforce GTX 460 SE (which is an underrated card)
    2TB WD HDD
    Samsung Blu-Ray Drive (Reads BD, Burns DVD/CD’s)
