  • newegg Intel Advanced Smart Cache Intel Advanced Smart Cache Technology dynamically allocates the shared L3 cache to each processor core based on workload. This efficient, multi-core-optimized implementation increases the probability that each core can access data from fast L3 cache, resulting in significantly reduced latency for frequently used data and improved performance.
  • newegg Greater Performance with Hyper-Threading Technology Hyper-threading enables multi-threaded software applications to execute two software threads in parallel to improve system responsiveness. Intel Core i3 enabled with HT Technology delivers performance and multitasking gains that result in increased productivity and efficiency.
  • newegg Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology (EIST) EIST allows the system to dynamically adjust processor voltage and core frequency to decrease average power consumption and average heat production. Combined with existing power saving features, EIST may provide an excellent balance between providing power when you need it and conserving power when you don’t.
  • newegg Execute Disable Bit (EDB) Intel's Execute Disable Bit function can prevent certain classes of malicious "buffer overflow" attacks when combined with a supporting operating system. Execute Disable Bit allows the processor to classify areas in memory where application code can execute and where it cannot. When a malicious worm attempts to insert code in the buffer, the processor disables code execution, preventing damage or worm propagation.

Best chip i ever got :) 9/7/2012 3:47:43 AM

Pros: Had this chip for a little over a year.
Overclocked to 3.6 not too long ago and temp were too high for my comfort. getting new cooler soon and cranking this baby up to 4.0+.

This gives a high end Dual-core but act like a quad-core!
Can play any game my GPU can handle, Runs every game a recommended Specs, when i say EVERY I mean Battlefield 3, any of the CoDs, Skyrim on ULTRA at all max fps all the time. Though My HD 4870x2 bottlenecks sometimes.

Cons: none

Overall Review: best CPU you will run into on the low budget high end gaming spectrum.

3.4 when I got it, 3.6 now 5/2/2011 1:21:18 PM

Pros: -Initially overclocked to 3.4 on stock heatsink.
-Overcloced now with a Corsiar a50 cpu cooler @ 3.62. a50 keeps temps at 22-28 idle, 35-42 under load, my load being gaming.
-Good temps on stock, great temps on aftermarket
-Most games only use 2 cores, my CPU runs at 3.6 while your quad for more money is running 2.0ish. gg.

Cons: -Its not a i5,i7, or a any quadcore for that matter.

Overall Review: Overclock is using X.M.P. with G.skill ram on a Asus mobo. X.M.P brings the ram from 1600 to 1800 at the same time the cpu goes from 2.93 to 3.6 at a 20x multiplyer.


I only hate on quadcores becasue I can't afford them.

Tough Little Chip 3/8/2011 4:11:26 PM

Pros: Performance suits my needs at a reasonable price. My previous computer of 6 years was a single-core Pentium M laptop so I'll be amazed at the speed of any modern multi-core desktop CPU. The relatively low power consumption was a plus.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: There's always a faster, better CPU in the future. I hope my Core i3 will last me at least 2-3 years. Should I ever upgrade the CPU and motherboard, the Core i3 will make for a good HTPC and/or server.

ASUS P7H55-M Pro
4GB DDR3 (4x1@1066)
Antec EarthWatts Green EA-380D
Nvidia GeForce 8600 GTS 256MB

Idle: 60W
Load: 125W

Runs great 12/30/2010 12:40:44 AM

Pros: Runs great even on the stock cooler.

I plan to overclock it in the near future, but even now it's as fast as I need it. For the casual gamer, this chip is perfect. Intel sure does make top-notch CPUs.

Cons: None
