I had been torn between this or the AMD 8350. On my previous build I had an AMD Athlon 760k Quad Core that I sold, and a second computer with a Pentium G3220 that I was upgrading from. Let me say this, THIS THING SCREAMS!

I didn't know what I was missing, my computer has an SSD and a R7260X, and it boots from cold in 4-5secs! Installing programs are so fast I can no longer let one install and walk away, it's always there waiting ON ME!

Skyrim (with Mods) Max! Blacklight Max! Neverwinter Max! Warface Max! Sniper Elite v3 Max! Minecraft 200-300fps Max!

It also Multitasks like a Beast!, VirtBox with LMint16 (with a few webpages open and widgets), 5 YT videos, FarCry3 and SEv3, Photoshop, Adobe Audition, Record with OBS, and Render a Video with WMM = AT THE SAME TIME!

If you are gaming you will not be disappointed; Rendering Videos/Serious Video Editing (while it can pretty fast) an i7 would be better if that is your main focus. But if you want a good all rounder while saving $100+ bucks, this guy is your guy!

Of course, Intel has produced another fast processor that is dependable. If you are looking for a mid-priced processor that is dependable and fast - this is the one.

Intel's Core i5 processors are well known for their high-end gaming potential at reasonable prices, the 4590 it's not the exception. Offers great balance between price/performance at $200. This CPU's multiplier is locked but you don't need any overclocking to achieve good frame rates with it. It does run quite hot with the stock cooler, my best advice will be to invest at least US$20-30 on a third-party cooling solution to increase the stability and longevity of this chip.

Its either i5 4590 or i7 4790 if you want the best gaming performance for your money. I know because I've also built gaming pcs with many in between and above. Seriously dont get "clever" and buy anything else(ie k series). I've built dozens of custom GAMING pc's. This is going to be your gaming cpu of choice(i7 4790 being the best at $80 more). FX 6300 or 8350 for amds. Remember GPU is what determines graphics. This cpu is the putty, filling the gap,s oh so aptly(like zero frame stutters and quick loading and installing). Pair this with a gtx 970/980, and you can laugh at the schmucks playing their whimpy PS4's. lol

You can game on this. It's a top performer. You don't need an i7 to game. This thing is a beast for its price. the 4770k and all those other ones are fluff.

However, if you can get a "K" version of this, I'd recommend that. I wish I could overclock this processor more, since it never even goes above room temperature

Easy install. The pictorial installation instruction was very helpful and easy to follow.

Built two PCs for my kids and it is a great little gamer chip. Put this CPU in an MSI Mini ITX H97I AC motherboard and no issues.

Do NOT buy this processor if you plan on overclocking as you will not have the options to tweak the BCLK or multiplier any higher than stock... Get the "K" model i5s if you intend on overclocking. You can overclock these with the Turbo feature and that worked great.

This chip is a low power variant meant for quiet low power builds which this was meant to be.
