Very fast processor.
Jeff
Not much of a tech expert but I'm assuming that's all you can really ask for with a processor.

Best of what you can get for your money.

I have no bad things to say about this processor. Runs cool with stock fan, its lightning fast, and its well priced. I used this in a gaming build for my friend. He is not so tech savvy, so I disregarded overclocking and just went for a locked processor, and this one hasn't let me down thus far. Even if you're on the fence about getting this or say, the i5-3570k, consider that you will need an aftermarket cooler to make full use of the latter, which really adds to your expense. Highly recommended.

I bought this for a budget gaming build. I had read a lot about the new Ivy Bridge Core i5 CPU's and really liked what I saw. I am an IT tech by profession, and know a good component when I see it. I work with all types of PC's and Mac's with all types of hardware configurations and I will say that the fastest and most reliable machines run the Core i5 and i7 CPU.

This is the newest 3rd generation Core i5 CPU, LGA 1155 socket. It's a quad core with 4 threads at a speed of 3.2 GHz with Turbo Boost of 3.6 GHz, 6 MB of L3 cache, and runs on Intel's Ivy Bridge architecture, built on the latest 22nm process. It also features on-die Intel HD 2500 graphics which runs at 650 MHz and up to 1 GHz, so there's no need for a separate graphics card. You get all the features of the older Sandy Bridge CPU' s and more like lower power consumption of 77w TDP, vPro and VTx virtualization capability, and Turbo Boost 2.0. The bus speed is 5 GT/s, and you can run the latest storage technology and configurations with it like native PCI-e 3.0 x16, USB 3.0, 32 GB of 1600 MHz DDR3 RAM in dual channel, and RAID in SATA III 6 GB/s (with appropriate chipset of course). This isn't a "K" series CPU, so it's not fully unlocked so you can't tweak the voltage or multiplier or frequency easily like on the K series, and there is no hyper threading, only available on the i3 dual core and i7.

My system has an ASRock H77 Pro4M motherboard, 8 GB (2x4 GB) Kingston HyperX 1600 MHz DDR3 RAM, Gigabyte 2 GB GT 650 Ti OC, Western Digital Black SATA 6 GB/s hard drive, and it runs like a champ. Very, very fast performance. Windows 7 Pro 64 bit installed in under 15 minutes and everything runs very fast. It runs basically as fast as the Ivy Bridge i7-3770 in most cases. Incredible power for under $200.

This processor has been powering my custom PC for the past 2 weeks now. It runs perfectly, is very quiet, and has not given me any problems at all. I recommend it as a processor to my friends when they're building their own computer.

If you're unsure weather to buy this or the 3570k... you will not notice any speed difference at all... unless you plan on purchasing a special cooler and overclocking your processor...
It works fantastic

Fantastic processor. Best of what you can get for your money. My PC is now very snappy, and refuses to freeze on any program. Windows open in milliseconds, and games load at least 30% faster. I purchased the CPU because I realized I was bottle-necking my PC with my GPU being more powerful than the CPU, making my PC slower than it should have been. After, I got it, I immediately installed it and was surprisingly pleased. This CPU is currently running at 3.78GHz stable with a corsair H60 Water cooler.
