post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I've got a i3 560 on the way. Not many reviews out there. Just wondering if anyone has experience they'd like to share.

I built an i3 530 setup for my gf; the i3's are beast overclockers. She hardly games, but a 4ghz O/C was cake. I could push it more, but why bother when she only browses the web? 4ghz was loading in the high 40s under Prime95.

If you overclock make sure you read up on how to adjust the on-board graphics clocks accordingly.
