Great bang for buck.
Mr. Koko
The only titles that won't stay at a consistent 60+ fps are games like Battlefield 3 where you have enormous 64 player games.

Great option for my my budget gaming build.

In my quest to build a quality gaming PC on a budget I stumbled upon the i3-3220. It's a powerful current generation processor that will ensure your system is future proofed for several years to come. For $5 you get a 10% improvement in performance over last year's i3-2120 so, why not? I bought this off Newegg but there are no reviews up on Amazon, so I'll give you one!

While there are games out that can utilize four cores there aren't a whole lot of them out there. Including new releases you'll be able to play 99% of what's out on maximum settings providing you have the graphics card to match. The only titles that won't stay at a consistent 60+ fps are games like Battlefield 3 where you have enormous 64 player games.

In my Steam library the most graphic intensive games I have are the Crysis games, a heavily modded Skyrim, Arkham City, and Max Payne 3. So far, they've all been at a consistent 60+ fps with everything turned up. I know for a fact the upcoming titles I'm interested in (Black Ops 2, Tomb Raider, Crysis 3) will play the same.

So, if you're on a budget and want to save the $100 I can safely recommend this over the 3570K. You also save money on a third party heat sink. At idle I'm seeing 28-33c and 60ish on a full load. I'm very happy with this purchase.

My Build:
Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H
Intel Core i3-3220
G. Skill Ares Series 8GB (2x4) RAM
HIS Iceq X 7850 (OC'd)

Well, first of all the CPU is great, i used to have the Celeron G530 paired with the HD6850 from AMD, and it was ok at gaming but sometimes the bottleneck from the CPU was annoying so i decide tu upgrade to the i3..(not enough money for the i5).

The "problem" that i have is with the temperature of the cores, i read reviews here and on another sites and it seems that the idle temps are between 28 and 33, my cores are at 38c on core0 and 14c on core1 with a room temp of 15-17c....at full load the temps are more close, 56c on core0 and 48c on core1, i thought that maybe the motherboard wasn't reading the heat sensor right so i try the i3 on another board and the result is the same, it kind of worries me that i received a faulty chip, and that at some point it may fail on me, because right now is very cool where i live, and it idles at almost 40c, so i don't know what is going to happen when the ambient temperature rise to 30-35.

I still think that the CPU deserves a 5 stars rating because the performance/price is great, and i do understand that when you buy electronics, something can be defective...it happens.

Any ideas about the high temperatures?

Thanks.

P.S. I apologize if my English is not right.

UPDATE 01-21-2013

I decided to return the CPU to amazon after the user M.Zaurov told me on the comments of this review that it was possible (i didn't know that) and i have to say that i'm very impressed.

I sent an email to amazon support at 12 pm on January 7th and in less than 5 hours i received an email telling me that a new order was placed for me at no charge and with the prepaid labels from UPS for the return of the defective CPU. Amazing.

Built a budget rig today, this with an 7850, 8 gig of memory and 120G SSD pretty much handles everything I can throw at it.
If you are building a game rig and really on a budget I recommend getting this instead of an i5 and put the extra 100$ in a better video card, which makes all the differences in terms of gaming. This won't be a bottleneck for most of the games. However if you're doing a lot of cpu-intense tasks like video capturing/editing a better cpu does make the difference. But as I said before, for gaming, this little cpu is a solid performer and a better video card is way more important.

I picked up the 3220 to replace a G630 in a recent build nothing wrong with the Pentium chip just that the 3220 is so much better at all task. IMO unless your into maxed out gaming quad cores are a waste of money for home use. I coupled the 3220 with a mid range video card and 4gb of memory couldn't be happier with the results with those components bought at sales I'm under the cost of a single good quality quad. The 2500 IG on the 3220 has gotten decent reviews so for high def. playback a video card is not needed. I use an external 3.0 USB HD, performance was not a step up but a leap forward with the 3220 compared to the 630. To top it off it uses ten watts less than the 630, a good value for a work horse of a processor.

cons: The miserable excuse for a cooler Intel provides. I replaced it with an inexpensive 92mm aluminum after market unit it runs quiet and keeps the chip cool.

Pros:
- The price
- Great performance for all but the most CPU intensive tasks (video encoding, very large file compression, etc...)
- Max power dissipation of 55W leaves it running cool all day and all night
- Supports virtualization (VT-x), hyperthreading, and Intel Speedstep

Cons:
- The graphics aren't all that
- No overclocking

First, let me say that for a budget processer, the i3-3220 is, in my opinion, as good as it gets. I purchased it for a gaming and photoediting rig that I built recently and it has been performing splendidly. Hyperthreading allows two cores to act as four, increasing performance even further. The Intel Speedstep technology lets the clock rate dynamically adjust to the load being put on it and by doing so saves power and keeps your fan(s) quieter. My temperature typically idles around 30 degrees celsius, which is terrific, and will get no higher than 38 degrees celsius under load. I use the Rocketfish Universal CPU Cooler, linked to in my build info at the end. The virtualization technology can be helpful in a lot of situations, the most important to most users probably being that this allows you to run Mac OS X inside of a VM in Windows.

As for the graphics, they will work fine for anyone not playing games or viewing very high quality movies. That being said, anyone who will be playing games or watching high quality movies/film should invest in a graphics card, even if it is cheap it will likely outperform integrated graphics. This chip uses Intel HD 2500.

And the fact that this does not support overclocking is to be expected and absolutely no reason to deduct a star.
