Nice product.
Got no problem so far with my CPU. It is performing as expected and is rock solid as usual Intel CPUs.

Bon prix lorsqu'à 199.99$
Très bon rapport puissance/prix.
Assez performent pour toutes les applications exigentes.
Rien à signaler.
Pour quelqu'un qui ne veux pas overclocker ce processeur Ivy Bridge est une bonne affaire lorsqu'en solde à 200$. Par contre si on veut passer à l'overclock il faut sans hésitation ajouter 20-30$ de plus pour la version 3570K mais il faut ajouter à cela un refroidisseur plus performant que celui d'origine. Ce processeur donne une note de 7.5 sur Windows WEI soit le même score que mon bon vieux i7 920 j 3.2GHz.

Experience: 5 Days
enough performance
no need to get 3550...just get 3450 instead...the reason i got 3550 is because it's on sale with $10 less than 3450.
