I've been converted with this processor though.The timing of my circumstances restricted me on my purchasing a Haswell processor but I am more than satisfied with my Ivy Bridge set up. I'm not what you would call a "power user." I use my PC mostly for gaming and word processing, excel etc when work requires it. I have reasonable expectations as to what my set up should be able to handle as far as game settings and what not so I don't try to overclock my components, run benchmarks, or partake in the usual pissing contest that has been going on with PCs since the dawn of time. I do however monitor my temps and have a pretty good "butt dyno" for my PC performance. I will say this processor runs cooler and the stock fan is quieter than my old FX-6300 series processor and unexpectedly I also noticed my games are running at a better framerate than they used to even though this has 2 fewer cores and is clocked slower than my old AMD processor. All in all I am very pleased with this purchase and can say that I will probably be buying an Intel processor for my next set up whenever that may be.
On a side note, get a 3rd party cooler if you play games. Intel coolers are rubbish at best. Even a 30$ cooler cools 10 centigrade cooler than that one.

One noob mistake I did make during my build, however, was not removing the stock cpu fan's cord all the way from around the fan itself. It may not look like it needs to be removed completely, as it comes tightly wound around the fan, but if you don't then you might hear a disturbing scraping noise when you start your PC for the first time. Took me awhile to figure that one out.....
