My first one was for my HTPC. YouTube and TV shows through the Xfinity TV website run relatively smooth. Unfortunately when I watch Twitch I can see there's definitely a little struggle in the frame rate. I am running the processor stock under an AIO water cooler. Perhaps it was my mistake for not getting a quad core for that build but I was try to save a few dollars. If you're looking for regular 1080p TV viewing as aren't incredibly anal or nitpicky about your video then this will be just fine.
My second purchase was for a crypto-currency mining rig. For this build the processor was only purchased because I need a processor. It literally sits at idle 100% of the time. For this I am happy and for the price you can't beat it.
This processor DOES come with a cooler. For idle speeds it's fine, but of course if you intend to actually use the processor whether it's encoding or really, really light gaming, I'd recommend investing in something a little more robust as far as cooling is concerned.
In particular I am getting this for a HTPC built for my mum. Although at this point we don't have much to do with 4k decoding, it supports 4k (2x% CPU utilization) with my test, making the whole setup future proof (not sure about 60fps though).
Comparing to the Haswell, with G1840 from the Haswell Refresh, now it supports Intel Clear Video HD which would do some goods to video quality using post-processing with the internal IGP.
Update on 2016-04-19: I have to clarify one thing: though this CPU supports 4k decoding, it is however unable to output 4k resolution with the internal graphics. This is kind of ridiculous (what's the point of supporting the decoding then) and certainly make it not an ideal solution for future proof HTPC. This can be seen from ark.intel.com.
I will look into this, if this can be solved I will update it accordingly.
Further updated: I bought a HDMI 2.0 cable, only to find it works up to 1080p60, which means that the bandwidth of the internal graphics is anyway crippled to FullHD, despite the CPU can decode 4k video.
Buyers are suggested to get at least i3 for Haswell, or any Skylake Celeron/Pentinum in order to build a 4k ready PC.
It runs Windows 8.1 with no sign of using a Celeron, I can assure you that doing a blind test without running benchmark software (or demanding software), just do some web browsing and video playback it's hard to tell the difference between this and an i5.
In short, this CPU is perfect for HTPC, or a middle end computer for daily browsing and maybe documentation work.
While for gaming, this is not suggested with its inability to drive high end graphics card, nor the IGP will be on par with i3/i5/i7 models, which then is expected from its price.
Finally just a reminder, in case you are using H81/B85/H87/Z87 motherboard, be sure that you will need a BIOS update to use this CPU, otherwise the system may not post at all. This maybe mentioned a few times on many sections, but is important enough for any potential buyers to take note if you were not aware of. Hope this helps.
Most motherboards right now with socket LGA 1150 will most likely need a bios update. I purchased the Asus H81M-K MB along with these processors. I had to manually update each motherboard. There are two steps to the update. You might want to read the ASus' website direction carefully.
For a budget built, you can't go wrong with this CPU.
