  • Speed and features I only have a Celeron E3400, it was terrible at stock speed - 2.6Ghz isn't much, so I did some hardcore overclocking and now it's runs at 3.9Ghz!! good
  • Design and form factor I have a small Packard bell case and the power button broke, so I took it out - not I've got a power switch hanging out the front! so-so
  • Expandability I can upgrade it to anything I want in the future, but my case limits me to only 1 Hard Drive bay!! good
  • Noise it's not silent but it is very quiet. even for 3.9Ghz! That's because of my cooler Master hyper 212 Plus! Great CPU fan! good
  • Size and weight The case is very small but a little bit heavy. good
  • Power consumption On idle - my computer only consumes about 150 watts but over 350 when in use. that's why I bought a 430 watt power supply! Also, 80 Plus certificate! good
