5.0 out of 5 stars Intel I5 2500k June 19 2011
By Alex
the product was shipped really fast and in good condition. The stock fan is not noisy but you might need to move the wires around a little to make sure they don't interfere with the fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product Sept. 23 2012

Have had this processor for about 4 months now, and it has worked without any problems. Very powerful, and for a mid range computer it excels in what it does. Very reliable, and has not overheated or failed in any way. The fan it comes with is very quiet on the whole.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product for a good price. Dec 24 2011
By vlad

Very fast processor, especially considering the price. I upgraded a 3 year old processor from the same price range with this, and all my games were running well with higher graphics settings. A calculation intensive program I use ran 6x faster.

The stock fan keeps temperature under 70C even with continuous 100% load. (item is rated for 90C so there is even some room for overclocking with the stock fan, but I would rather not)


Only two: chances are you'll need to get a new motherboard for the 1155 socket.
The stock fan is not very silent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great overclockers, a bit pricey April 11 2014
Verified Purchase
Build 3 computers with this beast and overclocked to 4.2 ghz and lowered voltage.

A bit pricey compared to new generation but a recommended buy but I don't think you can find them anymore. Too bad.
