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!

I am using this with my Asus Z97-A mobo and Corsair VP 16GB 2133MHz memory and using AI Suite 3 optimization features am achieving speeds close to 3.9 GHz. This isn't able to be overclocked but you can get almost an 18% turbo boost with an after market cooler using the 5 way optimization feature in AI Suite 3

Excellent in every way imaginable. If you don't need to overclock, but still want ample performance--this is the way to go... Most likely.

See, the complicating factor is what you're doing with your computer. and I can't possibly cover every usage scenario. This CPU is powerful enough to game on (though CPUs aren't a bottleneck for gaming, for the most part), multitasking is a breeze for this baby, it runs efficiently (which is the only reason to consider Intel over AMD), and... Well, that's about all I can say. She works like a charm, but its up to you to determine if she's the charm you need. And that's the real problem with the i5 CPUs... It's not simple to say who they're for.

That said, this CPU is great, and has no real drawbacks. If you don't need overclocking, you're not on a budget, and you don't need hyperthreading (and let's be honest, most PC builders don't), this is the best value CPU.

Purchased for my wife's computer to replace a Pentium G-4460, which was a nice CPU, but it finally met its nemesis with Fallout4. The Pentium was maxed out and causing stutters and freezing in Fallout, so it was time for an upgrade. I considered a couple things when making the upgrade 1) Current and future gaming needs, and 2) Value.

From a value standpoint, the Pentiums were the best for most games, but from a "need" standpoint, it became clear that it was not getting the job done anymore. .

Speaking of meeting needs, this CPU is specifically listed as meeting the recommended specifications for VR. I expect this to be able to handle VR titles for the next 4-5 years because the cost of VR 'sets is so high that they are treating development of VR games like they are developing for a set platform (like a console). The foundation of that platform is THIS processor (or any of its 4-core equivalents). I expect that they will not increase the recommended hardware for about the typical length of time for a modern platform lifecyle (ie PS2,PS3,PS4) - a lifecycle which is currently 4-5 years.

Finally, after the upgrade, The GTX 660 is now the bottleneck in my wife's system. No more stuttering and the CPU runs cool and quiet and never surpasses about 55% load in fallout4. My biggest factor in getting this CPU was that I already had the motherboard because it was an upgrade, but this is also the best value CPU in the U.S. at this price segment. It beats anything AMD has in single-threaded performance, while still retaining a price-point that competes with AMD's high-end FX-series 8-core CPU's. Generally speaking, this beats any FX-CPU in most games (and saves $$ on the power bill).

Regardless of whether you are building from scratch or upgrading, this is a good buy.

I ordered this CPU after serious contemplation and comparison of the i5-4460 and this i5-4590, but in the end the $10 price premium of the 4590 seemed worth it when I considered that the processor will probably last me several years. I have no complaints whatsoever about this product, and it has exceeded my expectations. The performance difference between this i5 can be as many as 5-10 FPS in some games, so if top-tier budget gaming is your goal, this is a great option. Keep in mind that this CPU is not overclockable. This is a minor qualm, but I think most people will be perfectly fine with its 3.3Ghz clock and maximum 3.7Ghz turbo. You also get integrated graphics, and although gamers will probably not rely on this for any extensive gaming, it is a good option if you are still saving for a GPU. The integrated graphics were about 6x better performance wise than the 2nd generation i5 that I had previously. I also do a bit of video editing, and the rendering performance of this CPU actually surprised me quite a bit. I was able to render a 10 minute video in 1080p in about 15 minutes -- this is outstanding in my book for such a cheap chip.

PROS

-Fairly Cheap (great budget or entry-level card)

-Cool (Runs at about 30-50 Celsius)

-Integrated HD 4600 Graphics (work surprisingly well)

-Pretty Good Video Editing Card on a budget

CONS

-No Overclocking

CONCLUSION

This is a great processor, and it can handle just about anything you throw at it at low temperatures and high performance. In my opinion, this is well worth $200.
