Summary: Nice heavy heat sink contact plate. I choose this low energy version of the i3 sandy bridge - i3 2100t, t=low power. It functions fine in my newly built file server. I'm also virtualizing a few VMs.
Summary: i use the 2100t for htpc in conjunction with h67 based mobo, win 7 and xbmc. although a bit slow in windows start-up, runs smoothly full hd mkv, etc. i use intel's stock cooler and tried to cancel the built in fan in order to eliminate noise totally, but temp jumped to over 60degC. with the fan it runs less than 40degC under load. bottom line: excellent cpu for htpc, but for this target app i would expect intel to provide passive cooler.
