Unboxing: Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge CPU Processor

This video is an unboxing of the Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge CPU Processor. This quad core processor is rated at 3.3 GHz per core and offers a huge bang for the buck.

The Core i Series line of processors from Intel are extremely popular and powerful. The performance for the value pushed Intel far ahead of AMD for a few years and they still maintain a solid foothold in the processor market.

The packaging on the Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge CPU Processor is pretty standard compared to the other intel processors. You’ll get the processor, the stock fan and heatsink as well as a manual and sticker for your computer case.

The stock heatsink is definitely acceptable and more than adequate for those who have no interest in overclocking their system. This unit also supports up to 3.7 GHz per core turboboost functionality for overclockers.

I personally still purchase Intel processors if it can be afforded. I’ve had much better performance running them over the years when compared to AMD. However, the price on Intel is much more expensive than an AMD alternative, this should be weighed when looking into building a system.

When building a computer, many people opt to go with an AMD processor and put the extra money saved from the processor into the graphics card. This is a wise decision for gamers, as the primary component for gaming is graphics.

All in all, the Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge CPU Processor is a great value. As of the making of this video it sports a 5 out of 5 egg review from 2,200 Newegg.com customers and only runs around $220.00. This is an excellent price for what you get.
