have yet to have any hiccups with this processor. The OC ability was to my liking and more than likely I could push a little more omph out of it but what's the point i think 4.3 is plenty.
(OCED to 4.0Ghz) No reason to change what isn't broken, and I had yet to OC the little guy. So safe to say this was an opportunity I wouldn't waste.
Still one of the best values. Too bad I won't be overclocking.
Custom delidded, polished and silver coated IHS. Really a nice CPU for OC 4.5Ghz@ 1.18VCore
I've been using this processor for a good two years now and I'm using the exact same one in this build again. It's speed has never let me down, and I have yet to use it's overclocking capabilities.
This is obviously an old part. It's from a couple of generations back, but it is still rock solid. I have it overclocked to 4.4 GHz with no voltage increase. Needless to say, I'm pleased.
Been using it for a few years with the last year parking it @ 4.5GHz and it has been absolutely flawless. I'll use it for as long as I possibly can.
I love this proccesor, its fast enough for all my needs and is very easy to overclock. I got mine clocked at 4.3 ghz without much fiddling. More than powerful enough for most people.
It always refused to overclock but I'm not sure if it was the CPU or the mobo preventing this, probably the mobo. But it is still going strong here in 2016.
