Great cpu, terrible heatsink/fan

by A customer on 10/4/2010

Pros: Quad-core processor, high performance without the i7 price. A great deal for anyone looking into gaming or wants a fast computer but is on a budget Cons: With the fan that came with the cpu, my processor was overheating at 250 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT! (this is only reason i gave it a 3 on ease of use). Switched it out with a cooler master hyper n520 and everything is running smoothly. Comments: I would strongly urge you to get this processor, it has great bang for the buck. However, don't use the Intel CPU fan that comes with it. Read More
