Michael, Dudley Avid PC Gamer

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Very quiet stock fan
Easy to install
Good value for money
Bad points:
The graphics processor is pretty awfull giving less than 15 fps on all low settings in Final Fantasy XIV:ARR would not reccomend if you want a rig without a dedicated GPU only good for an extreme backup in case your dedicated GPU fails.

Kieran, Bridlington

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Overclocks well (4.4Ghz and stable, will exceed this easily), on board graphics are surprisingly good.
Bad points:
Runs Hotter than most intel CPUs, even at stock speeds.. Cannot imagine running on the stock cooler. Personally I enjoyed jumping on my stock cooling and playing football with it.

Iain, First-time computer builder

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
With the integrated graphics in this I could set my computer up and play games with pretty good FPS even before my graphics card arrived.
Bad points:
The stock cooler is bad enough on normal clock speeds, would definitely recommend buying an aftermarket CPU cooler if you are even considering overclocking.

>Stock fan runs fine and quiet
Bad points:
