Good performer - except for HD Blu-ray if using XP

  • Summary: A lot of zip as a processor, but the extra 170-MHz clock speed in the HD graphics processor doesn't take the graphics to a new place. The most-maligned aspect of the i5 series is the HD graphics and deservedly so. In retrospect, I'd probably choose the lower-TDP i5-660, although this chip runs surprisingly cool for its 87-Wt rating. With the stock cooler and running at stock speed - 3.467 GHz including one step of Turboboost auto applied - the CPU is at 28-29 deg. C.

Bon processeur

yann, Amazon

  • Summary: Bon processeur, plus rapide que mon E9400 qu'il remplace. par contre attention au ventirad d'origine qui est très bruyant et qui refroidit mal le processeur en mode "silence" (environ 40° en idle dans ce mode). Ventirad changé pour un noctua nhu9B (je crois, je n'ai plus la référence exacte), les temperatures sont descendues à 27° en idle dans une piece à 21° et le tout sans aucun bruit !
