This forum seems to be missing a faq on cpu's...I did several searches on ratings and reviews but didn't come up with anything. If my searching ability was faulty please help out and post some links to this thread so hopefully the search function turns up better results for others.

If anyone has any good resources for reviews, it would be nice to have something here, for those of us looking at systems and options when building our first carpc. Please help out with links to reviews etc...specifically like tomshardware type reviews that show specs.
