Intel Pentium G2130 Ivy Bridge Dual-Core 3.2GHz LGA 1155 55W Desktop Processor BX80637G2130

5 out of 5 eggs Intel Ivy Bridge on the Cheap 06/26/2014

This review is from: Intel Pentium G2130 Ivy Bridge Dual-Core 3.2GHz LGA 1155 55W Desktop Processor BX80637G2130

Pros: -Ivy Bridge
-Runs cool
-Strong single and dual core performance

Cons: -Not as much as improvment over the overclocked E5200 I was running before

Other Thoughts: I had a Z68 motherboard collecting dust so I decided to upgrade my "garage PC". Before I was running an overclocked E5200 on a P35 motherboard. I wanted to be able to use USB 3.0 and let my SSD run at SATA III speeds. The speed increase over my overclocked E5200 wasn't as noticable as I thought it would be. Other than that little gripe the CPU is running strong in a not-so ventilated case with the stock HSF in Texas heat.

ADATA XPG V1.0 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model AX3U1600C4G9-DR
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: RAM works fine.

Cons: None to be seen.

Other Thoughts: For some reason the kit wouldn't run with 2 sticks in my board (Intel DZ68BC). Running each stick one at a time worked fine so that's how it's running now. Pieced together another build and used the other stick without any issues.

I've owned several A-DATA kids throughout the years and have never had to RMA any of them. Purchasing confidence in a brand helps narrow down the buying decision.

PNY Optima SSD7SC240GOPT-RB 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Fast
-Large capacity for the price
-Fast rebate processing

Cons: -No 2.5" adapter
-No SATA cable

But I knew these weren't included in the box. Just wish more companies would include these things. Buying in bulk a SATA cable and adapter would cost PNY probably $0.30 to include to the cost.

Other Thoughts: Been a great drive so far. Longevity of the controller/NAND are still and unknown at this point.
