Very fast cpu which i use in my htpc and handles all films well and have paired it with a gtx 660 ti and it flies through all games. So a very good gaming cpu aswell as everything else. The hd 4000 is also a very good igpu.

Mark, Durham I hate the snow.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Good processor, nice speed, easy to fit etc.
Bad points:
Included fan is a bit rubbish, other i3-i7 fans Ive used have been pretty good, but will need to upgrade this ASAP. Loud, clicky (Ive checked and its fitted OK), but after the initial boot up it tends to calm down a bit. Running in a server so never really under heavy load.

Kevin, Berks IT prosessional

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Runs XBMCbuntu very well, no problem with 1080p streaming. Very capable. No dropped frames at all and handles HD audio with no problems.
Bad points:
Running hot. I've had a couple of thermas shutdowns when stressing the CPU -- unsure if it's the confined case and standard cooling or the CPU itself. Sure it will improve with a coupe of case fans and a better cooler.
