AMD Athlon X4 845 and Near-Silent 95W AMD Thermal Solution AD845XACKASBX

A great budget option for the basic PC.

SuperZan

Pros: Improved core-performance over PD, FM2+ chipset is decent, sips power, runs cool and quiet, handles ST and light MT tasks with aplomb.

Cons: Base-clock OC only which is difficult to stabilise, not as quick as newer Intel budget chips in ST loads, still a budget CPU.

The Athlon line has been a solid choice in the budget tier for some time now. While the newer Pentiums and i3's will outpace the Athlons in single-core performance, they also only come in 2c/2t (Pentium range) or with a somewhat hefty price-tag for the budget range (i3). Additionally, a full-featured motherboard for an Intel processor will run a bit more than an FM2+ board in most...

“Enough of the jokes. I take Tom's "Best CPU" monthly articles literally...for gaming (of which I not much of a), "if you're not going to OC, you probably don't need more than a 4440.) And when I was looking of an i5 for this new build I'm now working on, I saw an offer of this i5-4440 for only $168 at NCIX, it seemed that it would do. Review is predicated on a damned good price basically....” --dennphill

Intel Pentium G2030 / 3 GHz processor

“I had one of these 1155 Pentium CPUs for a year, give or take a few days. With 8 GB RAM and a Gigabyte GT 730 GPU added onto an ASRock H61M-VS4 Motherboard, the G2030 was quite capable of doing small 3D renderings in TurboCAD, and it can handle older games like Xcom and the UT series, though not on hi-res. There was also no problem with movie watching, (as long as all necessary codecs are...” --Kosenator

“So I couldn't wait until I had saved enough for a Haswell 'Devil's Canyon' Unlocked CPU to put into my new Maximus VI Hero, and instead bought a Haswell i7 4771. I was prepared for a little disappointment, and have never been more pleasantly surprised. I seriously recommend this CPU for anyone looking for a high powered gaming processor, without any need to be 'overclocked'. Pair it with...” --way2aware

“I have to say that overall I am extremely pleased with my i7 4790k purchase and it's performance. It is so incredibly fast, and is actually just a hair shy of a $500 i7 3930k in most tasks which says a lot. That really is a big deal for a $300 proc. The 4790k idles strangely cool, in the low 20's (C) with my Corsair H80i, and is about 8-10C cooler than an i7 4770k at idle all things being...” --hapkiman

“This has been one champ of a CPU. You can just keep throwing any number of tasks at it and it will just continue to preform without a problem. Overclocks super easy and can hit the 5GHz zone with a good water cooler on it. Another fantastic product by Intel!” --JoeDirt
