Using a $50 aftermarket cpu-cooler and 1.20 CPU voltage, I've gotten the core speed to a stable 4.40 GHz with a stress test temperature of about 70 Celsius. For a $75 CPU, I think that's incredible value. I have not tried to reach 4.5 GHz or further simply because I'm comfortable with 70 degrees and it satisfies what I demand of it. The performance, given the price, is excellent. It's worth noting that when stress-testing both of my large (200mm) fans were running at high speeds, and that every processor is different; do not expect to duplicate my results.

As always, I will update this review as I make changes or anything happens. I'm happy to answer any questions that you post as comments to this review. All the details for my system are below for your research or whatever else.

Operating System: Debian Jessie (8.0)
CPU info software: I-Nex 0.6.6
Temperature software: lm-sensors
Stress-Testing software: prime95

Stress-Test: Torture test, 2 threads, Small FFTs
CPU Temp. during test: ~69 C, 72 C peak
Test length: 4 hours
Fan RPM during test: 1000 average, 900 to 1150 range

I wanted to make a low price HTPC build that could do some light gaming/streaming and this processor seemed to fit the bill nicely. At near i3 performance with half the price this CPU is extremely cost effective out of the box.

One of the great things about this CPU is the fact that it comes with an unlocked multiplier. This is a feature that Intel usually only gives to the several hundred dollar processors. Pair this with one of the low end G85 boards that now allows non-Z overclock and you can make yourself a $100 combo that has the same per core score of an i7.

That said, it is still a lottery on the CPU as to whether or not you can overclock at all. My first one was unstable at stock speeds and had to go back as defective. The second one was a trooper achieving 4.2 GHZ at 1.23 volts.

This processor is probably the best 'bang for buck' ive seen in a long time. I bought this processor for my mini itx gaming build, mainly for portability considering my main rig is in a nzxt guardian and weighs almost 50 lbs. I have yet to finish the build but I did install the Pentium on my main rig temporarily just to see what it could do.

On stock clock (3.2ghz) it played all of my games in my steam library fairly well at max settings 1080p, skyrim played the worst, mainly because of my graphics intensive mods. For references sakes , my i5-4670 on stock clock and a r9 270 sees 50-60fps.. (With graphics mods, 'more trees, better shadows, retextures, better reflections'). On the Pentium I saw about 35-40fps, which is still playable mind you! Then I turned it down to max settings 720p, and I saw 40-45fps. I said to myself , let's see what this can really do. I had bought a noctua l9i for my mini itx build... I installed that and got to over clocking... I got it STABLE at 4.6ghz and skyrim now ran at 1080p 60-65fps... And at 720p 70-75fps. That's incredible, for the total price of $99 (I got my Pentium in a sale of $49.99 that amazon had, and the l9i was on sale on new egg for 49.99) I had gotten better performance tha my i5-4670 with is a $200 processor!

Good speed + Low power usage + cheap! For everyday computing it's a beast. Pairs well with the nvidia 750ti for respectable gaming if you're in to that (Crysis 1080P very high settings).

Extremely recommended for person who has experience in overclocking.
I got this item from another store due to Amazon late shipping, I canceled pre-order and bought it from the store in my city and it cheaper than Amazon. I spend 1 hour to set up my system and update BIOS to make it work (please update your BIOS to the latest before install this item.). I can overclock it up to 4.5GHz with no problem (I won the silicon lotto again haha)

I try to test with Super Pi 1M, it finished calculation in 9 secs.
If you not have enough money for i3 this item can save your money. However, I recommend to use it with Z87 or Z97 chipset motherboard, because H81 motherboard still has problem with BIOS and you can't overclock it until the manufacturer release a new BIOS that support overclocking.
PS. If you use Z87 or Z97 chipset motherboard you can adjust BLK strap into 100, 125 or more like in i5 4670K.
I'm not recommend this CPU with a high end GPU like GTX Titan or R9 290X. However, if you want a budget GPU like GTX 750Ti to combine with G3258. It'll be a good option because you don't need to worry about a bottle neck which can be occur in a high end GPU system.
