Great CPU, for a low end gaming rig paired up with Corsair RAM, m.2 SSD and works like a dream. I would recommend maybe changing the stock cooler as one of the fastening 'legs' feel a bit iffy but it is doing the job.

It was for my sons computer and he is happy with this item.

I really cannot fault i5 chips at all. Every generation they come in at the lower mid range and just chug away doing their thing. Sure it's not as flashy or as fast as an i7 or i9 but its a solid little workhorse designed to cheaply, quietly and efficiently run home PCs and even budget gaming rigs. Yeah this "F" variant cant be overclocked but the sort of person this is marketed towards will likely not even know how to overclock even if they knew what it was and would rather just have a few quid knocked off of the price of a rock solid little chip. If this is you, go for it. you have nothing to really loose here. Especially at this price point.

Stock fan has no sticker on it , i panicked about that briefly but can confirm there was no sticker on my i7 either , bit random nothing to do with CCL they're great

I'm no expert, but built a new rig with this CPU. Performing as expected - no problems playing games on Steam so far. Good company and delivery - came quickly with no damage, would buy from CCL again.


December 2019

Very happy with this processor. However, I was upgrading from a 2nd generation i5 and was surprised that this wasn't dramatically faster than my old system. I do a lot of video editing and rendering and was expecting a noticeable improvement in rendering times, however while it is definitely faster, it's not greatly so. Having since seen reviews of the AMD equivalent processors I suspect these might have been more suitable and faster since they offer multithreading which the i5 doesn't. Other than that, I'm very happy with my new system built around this processor. So far it's proved rock solid, responsive and reliable. Recommended.

cheap, fast and reliable.
