rob, Cardiff

So much better than a P4 3GHz and it fits the mobo
Bad points:
Had to upgrade twice due to stock levels so probably paid more per mip than optimum.

ANDRIUS, Wellingborough computer engineer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
sweet spot when it comes bang for the buck. Anything more expensive than this will not give much performance improvement unless you are overclocker in which case you would like to look at K series CPU.
Backwards compatible with most older motherboards via BIOS upgrade.
Bad points:
it's not K series

Johno, Liverpool DAYZ player

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Seems very good for the latest games.
Stock Cooler fan is not loud at all.
Bad points:
For me there is none but some people may not like the fact that you can't overclock these much. But you could always pay the extra £20 and get the 3570k.
