4.0 out of 5 stars Good choice gaming CPU, 10 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Intel FC-LGA12C Core i5-3450 Processor (6M Cache, 3.10 GHz) (Wireless Phone Accessory)
Very happy with the CPU. Chose this after looking at benchmarks and reading countless reviews.

Can be overclocked to 3.7Ghz, the multiplier is locked to 37. Very easily done through BIOS on pretty much any motherboard.

I purchased this for 140 with the unlocked model i5 3570k was 170 at the time. From a gaming perspective you would realistically not need any more then 3Ghz hence why I chose this model and spent the 30 on a better graphics card.

CPU is nice and cool at just under 40C on idle with stock cooler which is not very good and quite loud. Purchased replacement pretty much as soon as I heard how it works. It is the only reason why I think this CPU is a 4/5.
