The CPU itself has a triangle on it for you to match up with the CPU array on the motherboard for installation. The stock CPU cooler does seem flimsy at first but it makes much more sense and is sturdy once it rotates then snaps into holes of the motherboard. This fan is really loud if noise bothers you or you want close to silence I recommend getting an aftermarket fan. Again, for a quick build or factory build its hard to beat what’s designed for and already has thermal paste.
At idle the temperature is usually 29-32 degrees Celsius. This CPU easily handles CS GO in highest settings up to 240 fps, League of Legends in high settings, and Fortnite on high stays at 60 FPS paired with the 1050 Ti.

This is a 7th gen processor, if you have and older motherboard like I do and try to upgrade make sure you have the right BIOS update, or you’ll end up thinking you wrecked your board and freak out. It wasn’t until I went back to basics and remounted my old CPU that I figured this out . After looking for the right software and setting everything up, THEN it started working . Otherwise, great product.
(It also goes without saying to not buy a pre 7th gen motherboard. There’s no guarantee it’ll have the update)
On a side note, if you’re debating between this and an i7 and its just a matter of a slightly higher budget go for that one, especially since you can’t overclock this. It may not make a difference immediately, but it will eventually. It’s one of those things were you start to feel the regret a year or two down the line…
It can get tricky with obs all you have to do is set the encoder to use less processing power but it’ll come at a quality of picture cost or use your graphics card encoder instead to run the stream but that will also come with a frame rate cost.
If you don’t stream and only play then don’t need to look further but if you want more power for a little extra then go with the i5 6600k
