"Godly i5"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I mean, how can you not love having this chip. It performs the same, if not better, than the best previous gen i7, and overclocks like a boss. I have mine sitting at 4.7GHz @ 1.25v (although I could go higher, I like having my temps lower. This chip can hit 5GHz easy if you have the cooling capability)
