Most helpful reviews

Alex, Ipswich

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Much better performance in games than my old FX-4100. I honestly didn't expect the difference I'm seeing. CPU-dependent games like Crysis 3 are smooth where they were barely playable before. Windows feels to respond faster but I couldn't verify this. Fan noise is low.
Bad points:
Possibly more expensive than it would be if AMD still made decent processors. Remember the Pentium 4 and Athlon 64? How things change.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Much better value than Core i7 and not missing the extra power for my Office and Development stuff. If you do lots of gaming or video rendering then i7 may be a better option but for general duties these are plenty capable and price is much better!
Bad points:
No, fitted easily and no issues!

Andy, Oxford

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Good value fast processor if you don't want to overclock. Installed into a budget gaming machine for my son. Win7, 8GbRAM, 2Gb Video card and an arctic cooler for the CPU. Everything runs cool quiet and fast. He's pleased anyway!
Bad points:
None - unless you think this is a lot for a processor.

Bad points:
Only rated 9 as the 4570K offers great overclocking potential which the 4570 doesn't. Be careful when installing as 1150 chips can be put in the wrong way

Jason,

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Extremely low power draw compared to just about everything else. Heat is no issue; averages 34C under an Arctic Cooler Extreme Rev 2.0. Scores a 7.5 (out of 7.9) on the Windows Experience Index. I do loads of virtualisation, and it's so compatible; AMD-based headaches are gone! Tons of power with 4 cores at 2.9. Multitasking games and apps is no problem and I've yet to see it locked up. I'd highly recommend this.
Bad points:
You need an after-market cooler to do justice, especially considering the price tag; you'll want this to last!
