The processor arrives in a very small box, with just the processor, a basic heatsink and some instructional booklets.
- Oh a cool intel sticker
Once in the box the processor can be removed from it's protective plastic casing along with the heatsink.
Installing the processor is a simple affair, just stick it into a compatible motherboard, lower the cover and bam! It's installed.
If you use the stock cooler, then you just fasten that over the top, depress the clips, plug in and you're done! Otherwise, it's best to follow your cooler's instructions. You will most likely need some thermal paste, this stuff is great:Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Compound 3.5g Tube.
The processor is fast and efficient. It barely generates any heat for how hard it clearly works. It multi-tasks like a dream and will never really lag. It works well for more processor intensive applications too!
If you are looking to overclock, I'm sure you already have an idea on how to do so. This processor is perfect for overclocking. It's easy and really simple to do as this is an unlocked processor.
Overall, a fantastic product suited to general use of computers with a spot of gaming or photo-shopping etc. Thumbs up!
Over a year ago I decided to buy this Processor to use in my first ever custom Gaming PC build and I couldn't be happier with it. Combined with my GTX 970 GPU this CPU allows me to run all the latest games in high/ultra settings with a solid FPS. Most games run at 60 FPS or above, but for those really poorly optimised or demanding games you can still run it at a solid 30 FPS or more (This is the FPS that games consoles are limited too). So to sum it up, with a decent Graphics Card you can run any of the latest games with this CPU!
One thing I would advise you to consider is to get a larger than stock heatsink as this CPU will reach high temperatures when performing demanding tasks such as running the latest games in high/ultra settings or rendering videos. Also if you are going to be doing a lot of video rendering then you will want to consider looking at the i7 series, but if you're just looking to build a gaming rig then this CPU is perfect for the job.
In conclusion this is a great CPU for gamers and has tonnes of over-clocking potential. The extra cores really help bring those frame rates up especially if you are moving from a dual core setup.
Here are the only metrics I noted down using fraps
Fallout 4 on G3258 @ 4.1GHz = 20-37 FPS average versus the i5 @ 4.1GHz averaging 40-60 FPS
It went from playable to silky smooth in one upgrade. Highly recommended.
... also I forgot, I have a cheap heatsink and fan combo - a Cooler Master Hyper TX3 Evo Tower Cooler, which is currently under £17. My cpu under extreme strain never goes over 55 C, it idles around 34.
I stress it out with so many things just because it's never gave me any worries. This thing is a bargain, it's a bit pricey.. my two brother both have i7's one of them has one that cost him over £400 and I bet I get more use out of mine and won't notice any difference in reality.
