Good cost performance and energy efficient

by Peko's Dad on 12/12/2011

I built a PC with an Intel DH61motherboard, 2x2GB Kingston Hyper-X DDR3-1600 rams, a WD Caviar blue 500GB hard disk and a Zonet 802.11 b/g USB wireless adapter. The power consumption on idle is only 23W and does not get higher than 70W with Prime95 full load. Since I do not overclock or play 3D games, I am not sure of its performance. However, Windows7 rated as pretty high, so I believe it is. HD3000 video also seems good. Anyway, this is really good for a budget machine, and I am satisfied with it.

Rudiculously Fast, Graphics Beautiful

by Charles McCaughey on 7/28/2012

WEI processor score of 7.1. Eats HD video for breakfast. HD 3000 on-chip graphics is beautiful and fast. WEI graphics score of 6.2, gaming graphics score of 6.2. Have never seen the cpu meter go above 50% even when crunching video, the i3 is plenty powerful for most people I'm sure. Runs very cool and sips power. Intel has hit it out of the park with this one. That's saying alot coming from me as I have always used AMD prior to this. Paired it with an Intel DH67GD to get the most performance.
