I have it and its g8. you won't be sorry for getting it with some mid lvl card like 1050-1060 gtx and you're good to go to play new games for next 2-3 years on medium/high with solid 30-40fps. enough said.

Almost. Idle, my is in the 30s and 40s depending of weather (right now its 29 idle). Under load it gets to 50-61 (maybe was a bit higher sometimes). I am on stock cooler. As long it doesnt goes over like 75 under load it should be ok.

Thanks for replay. If I can, I will buy i5 4460. And if not,then one of the two CPU's. Whether this has a processor i3 4170, as well as i3 4330: "Among its many features, Turbo Boost and HyperThreading are activated" ?

It says that i3 4330 better to 35%, and i3 4170 better for 40% of mine. Believe me, I'd have i5.If not, then I'll have to buy i3. Just tell me this, of the two processors: whether it will work BF4 without stuttering if I buy i3 cpu. Thanks.

I3 4330 doesnt has turboboost. 4330 is waste of money. Either 4170 or i5.


Just look up intel webpage for 4330. There you will see no turbo boost. There is very little difference between i3 and i5 in gaming.

You're right, neither of them don't have TURBO BOOST.

Yes, if u take socket 1150. But there are also new skylake i3s from socket 1151. Like i3 6100 which has same performance like 4170. People even overclock the 6100 up to 4,5 Ghz. So yes, either i34170, i54460, i54440,i36100. But its up to u.

Yes this is much. The recommended selling price from intel is around 120$. I payed 119€ for mine. But it probably was the cheapest deal you could get?

I have all cores enabled. One core doesnt make much sense if you have 4 threads. Dont you think so :D ? Put on Auto or all cores. Enjoy your new rig.
