Reviews Word on the street for the Intel Core i5 2300


9.5
I first put this chip into a H61 board - which offered me only limited tweaking features - I was able to increase the CPU clock multiplier up to 31 or 3.1ghz - a modest increase of 200-300mhz on stock speeds.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Socket Type

On my GA-Z77M-D3H board I can overclock the cpu to 3300MHz by setting the multiplier to 33x100MHz = 3300MHz.

It can go from 1100MHz all the way up to 3100MHz.
by battleaxe231 (Jul, 2012)
I have since upgraded my motherboard to a P67, which offered the full 35x multiplier and with that managed to get clock speeds of up to 3535 mhz (3.5ghz) , at that rating the CPU is capable of matching an i7 950 @ stock - pretty good going for the runt of the Sandybridge i5 litter.

Gaming

This cpu is sufficient for gaming, surfing the web, managing documents, everything!

Price

Definitely a great processor, there are better ones out there - and they are all far more expensive than this one - i guess it just depends how much your not willing to spend.
