First to review

Stable Performer

This processor is a good VFM performer. I am using this processor with the Asus P7H55 motherboard and constantly runs the processor at 4 Ghz.The 540 Runs cool with standard cooling fan and the temperature never exceeds 75.Highly stable.

A very capable proccy as well a potentail OC deamon !!!

Even though the processor is a couple of years old,

I say for an enthusiast, this is much better than the latest generation sandy bridge i3 2xxxx series since that proccy is locked and cannot be overclocked.

firstly,
1. Mostly sufficient for any thing you throw at it.
This is mainly because the windows architecture will not utilise many cores even if available (AMD 8 Core's main prob).
I ran this proccy against an i5 Quad and this wayy faster in single threaded applications such as audio conversion, Win Rar, PC Start up, etc. But the advantages of the additional cores come into play during g

Good performance

Intel processors are always good to meet the standards. Intel Does always get equipment replaced as recommended by the manufacturer if fails to work.

UnHappy

I bought this Core i3 processor 1st gen processor. I find it difficult to get the LGA1156 socket mother board.

I think I did a wrong choice.

Still awaiting for mother board.

i3-540 Processor

If u are on low budget then grab this eyes closed..... dont go for any other processors...... this packs a hell lot of a punch. Its performance is really constant. No need of extra cooler fan.

Pros:
1. 3.3 Ghz (base frequency)
2. Cool and efficient.
3. 7.2 WEI ratings (windows 8 pro)

Cons:
1. Intel hd 2500 (if you not a mid-level or hardcore gamer it's not a problem)
2. A little expensive, should be around 5-6k.
3. Can't be overclocked
Nevertheless its a good processor. You shouldn't hesitate before buying.

Intel i3 obsolete processor

This processor is very old was introduced long back, i would recommend going for i3 3220 processor or the 4th gen processor i3 4330 which is the latest processor.
