Great speed and runs very cool. Quite good graphics power too for onboard. Had a slow laptop for years so this is a big leap for me, but will be a leap for anyone not coming from a top previous generation i7.

This comes with the intel stock cooler and CPU fan which is perfectly adequate (this comes with its own thermal pad so no need for extra thermal paste).

Make sure you have a socket 1155 motherboard and also the B3 revision of it like the Gigabyte SKT-1155 H67M-UD2H-B3 Motherboard since the earlier ones had the sata ii issue.

Deffo best CPU on the planet... I MUST SAY, RUNS ON LITTLE POWER & also runs very Cool indeed.

Did not go for the (K) variety because I personally chose not to 'OC' Im very happy with stock 3.3Ghz - 3.7Ghz Turbo Boost Once you need that extra power its always available.

In most benchmarks its already beating most AMD HEX-CORE CPU's so what does that say, just look on and you will get the evidence,
including YouTube reviews.

If you want a high powered CPU without going over budget well the Intel Sandybridge i5-2500 Core i5 Quad-Core Processor (3.30GHz, 6MB Cache, Socket 1155

is the ticket... "One Way!" - Only Purchase the (K)edition, if you intend to over-clock, and buy a 'high spec' "Z68 MSI GD65 GEN 3 mobo".HAVE 16X PCI-E BANDWIDTH
Which there's lots to chose from. Its no longer like watching paint dry, "its like Blink' and the Job, well its done". very impressive stuff.

If you want to keep your options open for months down the road the spend the extra £8 quid and buy the (i5 2500K edition), it will also have higher resale value.

Personally the 'non' (K) version is fast enough for all my needs including video rendering, so its no slouch there either..

Thanks for reading...

MY Board *MSI Z68 GD65 GEN 3 MOTHERBOARD*, *Bought on Amazon UK* - HAS THE NEW GEN 3 X16 X16 FULL PCI-E EXPRESS 16x PCI-E v3.0 FULL DUAL LANES FOR GPU's DO A U-TUBE REVIEW

Edit: the 2500 (K) is still the cooler and better overclocker compared with 3rd Gen Ivy bridge 22nm CPU.! Which has no real advantage over the older i5 2500 (K)

However the new Z77 Motherboard's are substantially faster, and are compatible with the slightly older i5 2500 series.

I have since upgraded to the 2550K series over my previous 2500 (i5) its great fun overclocking now that intel have made it very easy.

Must Buy Product!
If your building your own system the CPU choice is now a no-brainer - use Sandybridge!
Intel have managed to introduce the Sandybridge range at mid range price and this processor absolutely flies. It eats other processors in its price range alive for everything and gives the whole AMD range a black eye.When it comes to heavy duty multi-tasking it handles it with no stress and you can process video files faster than anything I've seen so far.Buying this processor means that your 1155 motherboard will be bang up to date, so you will have SATA II, USB 3.0 onboard HD sound and support for the more than adequate Intel HD Graphics (note: to use Intel HD 2000 graphics you need a H67 motherboard). If used with a discrete Graphics card (with P67 motherboard) you will have a blinding gaming rig!
Make sure you get a motherboard with B3 Revision, this fixes SATA issues.

Overall I would wholeheartedly recommend this CPU. I've never used anything at this price that gives you such power.

First things first, this chip is fast. I upgraded from an AMD dual core 6000+ and the speed difference is unbelievable. This chip contains four cores, all of which are running at 3.30 ghz. I currently have mine overclocked to 4 ghz, and it runs fantastically.

Overclocking was a breeze, it has the potential to go to around 5ghz if really pushed but I've chosen to leave it at 4ghz for stability. A good choice for PC enthusiasts who like messing around with all the settings.

With Intels turbo boost technology when the computer isn't doing anything strenuous it automatically cuts the speed right back to save on energy, good for both the enviroment and more importantly your electricity bill. The second that it's faced with a challenge the speed jumps right back up with no noticeable delay. From a users point of view you wouldn't even be aware it had done anything, but it keeps the electricity bill down especially if your computers idling a lot.

How is it with games? Couple this processor with a semi decent graphics card and you'll be playing all the latest games at the highest graphics settings. General computer use? Fast, extremely fast.

Why this processor over others at the moment? Firstly there is the old debate, Intel vs AMD. I have always been a keen supporter of AMD over the years but at the moment Intel just beat them in terms of performance and affordability.

Intel have a rather confusing system for naming all their processors, but a rough summary of the i3, i5 and i7 is thus. i3 is Intels current dual core processer. i5 are their entry level quad core processors, and i7 is their top end quad core processors. Why the i5 over the i7?
