Pros: Integrated HD4000 graphics, Ivy Bridge

I bought this processor, the i3-3225 for my mother's PC build.
I've been stress testing the PC and using it day in day out ever since I built it in early February 2013.

This processor really complements the PC's performance.
It is only a dual core, however has 4 threads, runs on Ivy Bridge technology 22nm, and can be overclocked if needs be.

I also got this processor because of its HD4000 integrated graphics, whereas all the other i3's had the HD2500 integrated graphics.
Seeing the nature of benchmark performance of the HD4000's over its younger brother, it was foolish of me not to spend the extra £10 for the i3-3225.
I'm very glad I spent that little extra amount of money, in order to buy a stable and brilliant processor.
I should also mention with the Arctic Freezer Pro 7 Rev 2 cooler and Arctic MX-2 paste it didn't exceed 60c on P95 & Folding@Home for several hours. This is on stock clocks and stock voltages.
