Top processor, highly recommended,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Intel FC-LGA12C Core i5-3450 Processor (6M Cache, 3.10 GHz) (Wireless Phone Accessory)
I've just purchases this at the same time as an asrock z77 pro 4 mobo, and am very, very happy. I've changed from an i7 - 975 with a large coolermaster heatsink and double fan running at 60c and benchmarking at 6500, to this cpu running at 32c at idle and 36c under load using the stock fan supplied with it- benchmarking at 7200!!!! The 22nm technology has really improved my pc experience. Less power, less heat and less noise. My case has 5 fans and i've turned 4 off!!!! So as long as you don't want to over clock, as this cpu is locked. Its an amazing purchase at a good price point. Highly recommended!

Been looking at this processor but a bit thrown by the name of it. What socket set is this (1155)?

It's as fast as you could need, and unbelievably cool. It idles at just over 30 C and with full use takes many hours to reach 50 C. This is with the stock fan.
