5 out of 5 eggsGreat little chip

Pros: Low power consumption, decent speed.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I needed a CPU for a low power small PC project (PSU was 160-200W max) and with this CPU I was able to pull it off without feeling too much of a pinch with performance.

It's main purpose is to be my home server streaming Plex to multiple HD TVs at once. It does this without any kind of delay or lag. I'm also able to host a TS server on it, a web-server, dispatch, and many other things all without any kind of hiccups.

Bottom line, surprisingly enough this thing runs like a champ for a low power dual core. I honestly couldn't be happier with it.

5 out of 5 eggsShut up and take my money!

Pros: Absolutely sips power. Bought for a low-power HTPC/Roll-your-own whole-house DVR solution that will always be on based on this PC, a SiliconDust HDHomerun Prime + CableCARD, and a few Ceton Echo extenders..

Mated with a 80+ Platinum 400W fanless Seasonic power supply, a Samsung EVO SSD, and a WD HDD for DVR storage duties,the entire system sips down ~25W at idle, ~35W - ~40W at full blast.

Mated with an aftermarket heatsink/fan, it's completely silent. I got more noise out of my old TWC DVR than this (it had a noisy old HDD that you could always hear spinning up)..

Mated with a Z87 mobo. No issues whatsoever decoding HDTV streams, HD movies, BD disks, or recording multiple HTPC streams at a time. This doesn't even break a sweat handling the recording of 3 HDTV streams at a time from the HDHRP..

Cons: It's not free? The usual. Stock heatsink/fan could be better, hence why I replaced it with an aftermarket HSF.

Other Thoughts: Overall, if you're looking for a great, low-power processor for an HTPC, home server, or other low-power build, BUY THIS PROCESSOR.

I've built a lot of HTPCs and home servers, and this, by far, is the best processor I've ever used for such a system.

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet & Cool

Pros: The CPU is perfect for my application. HTPC playing and recording live on air broadcasts, Playing DVD and Blu Ray movies is flawless using the on chip Intel HD graphics engine. I do video editing and video file conversion without issues. No it's not as fast as my overclocked quad core i7 with an upper end video card but it's perfect for the living room. This PC is quiet..........

Cons: Nada, non at all.......

Other Thoughts: I could have purchased a faster processor for the same amount of money but I crossed my fingers and chose this, the result is no fan noise what-so-ever. This 35 watt processor rocks. Note that I tossed the OEM Intel fan then replaced with ZALMAN CNPS2X 80mm (it's small but it works or this application).

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect build for a multi terabyte, low power home server.

Pros: I wanted to build a home server, low power, quite, that supported multiple hard drives. My build included this component and fit the bill perfectly. I have now a very quiet server, using very low power, with more than 5TB mirrored drives (raw is >10TB). Strongly recommended.

My build:
- BitFenix Phenom BFC-PHE-300-KKXKK-RP Mini-ITX computer case
- Rosewill Green series 530W 80 PLUS Bronze power
- ASUS H87I-PLUS Mini ITX motherboard
- G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB F3-12800CL10S-8GBXL
- Intel Core i3-4130T 35W (super low power)
- Crucial M500 120GB Sata 2.5" SSD
- 5 Hard Drives, all Western Digital Green, from 1TB to 4TB
- Windows 8.1

Everything is low power, I use the integrated graphics of the CPU, and the SSD keeps the build quite fast. With Windows I created a single 'storage space' that takes all the 5 hard drives and makes it look like a single multi terabyte hard drive, and I selected to have everything mirrorored. No fuss with RAID, it is all in Windows. I don't use a monitor or keyboard (only used it to set it up), as I connect remotely via remote desktop. I chose these components to make sure they were all compatible - it has been running 24/7 for the past 4 weeks with no problem, no heat, no noise. I serve my music to my Sonos components, backup all my work, share all my pictures, and could even remotely access it (I have not set that up yet).

Cons: No cons.

Other Thoughts: More than fast enough for my use. CPU is about 10% used average during normal server use, even when copying files.

5 out of 5 eggsWOW ! ! ! Efficient Performance in a Quiet and Cool Package.

Pros: Low thermals, plays HD video, computer runs without lag, fast/efficient, low-profile CPU cooler

Cons: None !

Other Thoughts: I was concerned about the performance of this processor, but since using it, those concerns have been put away. I had a gaming system that I sold off for parts since I don’t really game anymore. Lately I also feel like I don’t accomplish much when playing games other than burning away time.

I decided I wanted a smaller case and more efficient computer. I kept my Striker Z87 EVGA board and replaced the 4670k I5 processor with the I3 4130T. I then placed the system in an Antec ISK 110 VESA case (very small; look it up on new egg).

I have not noticed any difference in performance (compared to I5 4670k) with my daily use of listening to podcasts (also vids w/itunes), streaming video in Google Chrome ie. ABC and CWTV, Web-browsing, photo editing and working on school course work. I may often do many of these things simultaneously and it does not phase this processor (30+windows open; one for research, another for entertainment, shopping etc etc). This processor is complemented with two 250GB SSDs (One Samsung 840 and one a Vertex 3) and 16GB of Corsair Vengeance low-profile RAM.

I couldn’t tell a difference in gaming performance between the I3 and I5, which was surprising to me since this is a “T” model I3. I wasn’t expecting the i3 graphics (4200) to be able to play Tribes Ascend (game). Anyhow, that’s not why I got the processor. I state this to emphasize the performance of this processor. I mostly got it because I wanted a processor to run cooler than my under clocked I5 4670k, but still have reasonable performance. I also didn’t want to hear the fan speed up every time I put a load on it. I actually get more performance and less heat running the I3 at regular voltage and clock speeds than I did at under clocking the i5 at 2Ghz and 1.5V (factory just over 1.7 volts). Also take into consideration that the I3 only has two cores with hyper threading while the I5 has four cores and no hyper threading. I had all four cores on the I5 running at 2Ghz. The I5 is now being auctioned off with less than three months use (never overclocked). I wrestled with the idea that under clocking my processor would make it nearly equal to the i3 and produce less heat. This was not the case. I read through forums for many hours analyzing charts and coming to the conclusion that the I5 could be throttled down to what the I3 could do performance wise given I wanted it to produce less heat. That was not the case. I’m assuming the hyper threading of the I3 makes it more efficient than the four cores on the I5.

Overall, I highly recommend this processor to the regular user who does moderate gaming or wants to pair it with a graphics card. It is more than capable. For those who REGULARLY compress files etc and speed is of utmost importance over comfort and efficiency, go with the I5 or I7.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid choice for low power applications

Pros: Good clock speed, onboard graphics, low power, and ECC support.

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: For low-power servers, this is terrific. Good clock speed, hyperthreading, low power, and it does (unlike many desktop chips) support ECC memory, if your motherboard does.

If you don't need 4 cores or the slightly higher cache of the E3 Xeon line, this is a much more economical low-power choice.

Mine blasts a ZFS RAIDZ pool at 600MB/sec, limited by the slow drives.

5 out of 5 eggsFinally, a fast low TDP processor for my HTPC

Pros: Bought for the 35W TDP to put in a HTPC case. Can barely hear the stock fan and I'm sure an aftermarket cooler could be even quieter. For what it's worth it gets a 7.1 on Windows Experience Index for processor speed which is more than enough and a 6.6 for GPU.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Runs at 40 dec C when streaming Hulu or APrime. The stock cooler is quiet so far. I can hear the HD over the fan!

Cons: Not sure if it's the on-board graphics, but the "blacks" are not as contrasty as the AMD APU (Richland) this is replacing. In a dark movie scene, it gets that pixelated look in the shadows. I don't recall the AMD having this issue. I will continue to work with the settings.

Other Thoughts: The AMD unit fried which is why I love this cool running Intel. The AMD APU required an aftermarket cooler to hear the TV. The stock intel cooler seems good as-is.

5 out of 5 eggsFinally, Intel!

Pros: Oh, Intel, it has taken years of being pummeled by ARM-based hand-helds for your marketing geniuses to tell your engineers to make this chip. But all is forgiven! Bundling a desktop CPU with a graphics processor, all at a low power is just what I need for my laptop-replacement desktop.

Unlike laptops, where you plug them into a remote monitor and you can't get max resolution, or something weird happens to the display, when I plugged this into my old Hann 1680x1020 it went to max res. And it would've gone higher.

Cons: I wish Intel would package a better CPU fan with their processors. I can hear the bearings creak on this one--loudest part of my new system.

Other Thoughts: See my Gigabyte GZ-2SL3BI Mini-ITX case review for config.

Nice thing about this chip is that you save money on low-end desktop systems by not having to buy a graphics card. Saves space too. Allows for small power supplies. I can build a system for the same cost as an all-in-one. Can't find port replicators for low-end laptops, and they don't have the port options as a desktop, or number of SATA, etc. This processor opens back up the low-end system builder's market. Building a low-end system based on this chip means that the motherboard manufacturer and you use the same h/w platform. So does everybody else. This means that your config of drivers is being shared by everyone else, so unique-system problems are eliminated.

Remember--when you get a chip with an embedded graphics, like this, you are not only buying the chip but you're getting Intel's graphics package, including the driver. Intel drivers tend to have less bugs than other graphics drivers. Problems where the system crashes going into/coming out of standby are most likely graphics driver-related, so your choice of graphics drivers plays a large role in your system stability.
