Cheapest CPU we could buy that was unlocked. It worked, I guess.

This processor is pretty good considering its limitations. It is still a capable gaming chip, but I would highly recommend replacing the stock cooler regardless of whether or not you plan to overclock. Firstly, it's extremely loud. I turned all other fans off in this system to be sure. It's louder than 3 other fans combined. This thing runs HOT. I dared not to OC it beyond 4ghz with the stock cooler. I've seen it reach over 80 degrees Celsius and that makes me very uncomfortable (lol). At its lowest it hasn't gone below 42 degrees. That being said, it will run League of Legends, even Tomb Raider. While the performance isn't perfect, it is still capable of achieving 60fps in 1080p (though it will vary greatly based on what type of games you play).

It was a decent option at time of purchase though now is easily outdone by Intel's Pentium line.
