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.

Pros

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)

Cons

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

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.

Well packaged, amazon.ca quick delivery, installs easily. Better price than other locations. Bought two.
Will buy again, like that amazon.ca will ship to a post office rather than the unreliable and confused courriers.
Do note that this chip must be for a 1155 socket on motherboard.

Although I wasn't expecting much for general computing, the i5 2500k surprised me in CPU intensive tasks and applications, such as open-world games for example. I found it to be much faster in Microsoft's FSX, and I haven't even overclocked yet. Great CPU for the money!

I use to do computer aided design using Solid Works, Inventor and Solid Edge and of course AutoCAD so I was always worried about speed. This one does well enough to do that but I really do not need it anymore.

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.
