Rod, Liverpool Retired broadcast engineer.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I chose this processor after reading various reviews, comments and articles, all of which seem to suggest it as maybe not the ultimate for gaming, which I don't require anyway, but a very good all-rounder for a general purpose PC, which is what I was building. I've also used a solid state drive (Samsung 840) for the operating systems (Windows 7 and Ubuntu, both 64bit), and everything is extremely fast and responsive. The cooling fan supplied is so quiet I haven't felt any need to replace it with anything fancy. I can't find any application, not even LibreOffice, that takes more than about two seconds to open, which is vastly better than any PC I've built previously.
