please note the CPU is not in scale with the box, in the pictures above

Bit confused about the i5, are they all quad core, I thought they were dual core but 4 threads. Maybe someone can clarify.

looks like 4 cores and 1 thread per core

"None of the currently available Intel CPUs have graphics on die. That is planned, but currently unavailable. From what I can tell, i5 CPUs are those which have 4 threads. This means they are either 4 cores without SMT (1 thread per core) or dual cores with SMT (2 threads per core). Currently, the i5-750 is the only i5 available, and it is a quad core without SMT."

dated September 2009

Core i5 7 series are quad cores, all other series 6, 5 and 4 are dual cores.

en.wikipedia.org/wik…_i5

PC Pro magazine has a big CPU review this month (Mar 2010)

They say the i5 650, 660, 661 and 670 are all TWO core

The i5 750 is FOUR core.

In their sum up they say the i5 750 is probably the "best" i core to go for at the moment (price / performance).

The i3 530 is a good choice if you want to spend a bit less - about £80. This has graphics built onto the CPU.

Load of i core CPUs came out in January, some now do have graphics on the core, see my append above.

The i5 661 has graphics on the chip (the 1 at the end denotes that)

WOW!!!!! 8MB CACHE!!!!!!! unfortunatly, my motherboard doesnt take quad cores. the most it can take is a core 2 duo processor, 1066 FSB. I currently have what my motherboard can take, a conroe E6400.

Anyhow, this has got to be HOT. For me to have this will cost me much more than just this price!

Good deal.

The confusion here shows how stupid Intel's new naming scheme is though. All i7 are quad (for now), but some i5 are dual and some are quad!?

I doubt your motherboard can take ANY of these "i" core CPUs.

Intel brought out a new socket called LGA1156 to take most of these "i" core CPUs and they wont fit in the "old" LGA775 socket that was used for Intel Core 2 Duo etc.

I sometime think Intel do it deliberately.

For example they bought out the i7 900 series which had to go into a motherboard with a LGA1366 socket.

But the i7 800 series go in a LGA1156 socket (same as all the other "i" series CPUs).

They are all Core i7 series CPUs, but some go in LGA1366 socket and some go in LGA1156 socket

How stupid is that.

I agree and more confusion in that the dual cores can do 4 threads as well! Would have been better to make i3 Dual and all i5 quad and i7 top of the range quad.

Thanks for that, yes I forgot to mention the LGA775 part.

I reckon if I wait for about a year, these will be less than half price and then I could maybe upgrade if I REALLY need to as my current system is working fine.

Hi. Can anyone recommend a motherboard to go with this with at least 8 SATA connectors? I can see plenty on Froogle, but I am not entirely sure what to look for aside from this and USB 3 / SATA 6 support. Thanks in advance.

Micro Mart issue 1090 (21-27 January) had a review of some i3 and i5 motherboards.

The gigabyte motherboard you have linked to above is a P55 chipset motherboard.

But to support these new i3 and i5 CPUs Intel have announced THREE new motherboard chipsets - H55, H57 and Q57.

H55 is the entry level chipset, H57 and Q57 are similar to each other, but "H" is for home use and "Q" is for business use.

The P55 may need a BIOS upgrade to support a new Clarkdale based CPU.

The P55 offers no route to use the intergrated video built in to some i core CPUs (nor will a BIOS upgrade fix it).

Micro mart mentions various H55, H57 and Q57 motherboards from EVGA, Gigabyte, ASUS and MSI

Let me know if you want more details from the article.

Yeh, me too. Although I specifically chose a 500gb F3 as for the OS HD it is better for performance to restrict the size.

Personally Im thinking about the Asus P7P55D LE because my needs are basic but it's a good quality mobo and good warranty.

Hope this helps!

Following on from my append above.

The article says the Gigabyte GA-H57M-USB3 (h57 chipset) and GA-H55M-USB3 (H55 chipset) both feature 8 SATA ports, plus support the new the USB3 protocol.

I think these are both MicroATX boards.

Have you thought about maybe a H55 or H57 chipset?

There is an ASUS P7H57D-V with the new H57 chipset, but it is not cheap

expertreviews.co.uk/mot…evo

There is also the P7H55D (H55 chipset) which Micro Mart say is pretty good.

overclock.co.uk/pro…tml

I only bought a new Pentium dual 2.8 (running at 3.61) a couple of months back. Couldn't justify buying this even though I want to !

This is an awesome price Time to eBay an E8400

What if I don't want to use the integrated graphics, what would be a reasonalbe choice then? I don't really want to pay more for the mobo than the cost of this CPU, although I might stretch for a great deal....

Thanks,

I'll defo look into it. The ASUS P7H55D-M EVO Looks reasonably priced... but to be honest I'm on a bit of a budget so hopefully the new chipsets will bring down the price of the older boards... :-D

I will have a dedicated graphics card so don't know if I need the H55... any other major advantages?

£20 saving, nice! Anyone bought from these before?

An alternative is the Gigabyte GA-P55M-UD2 which won the Custom PC magazine "sub-£100 Lynnfield motherboards labs test". I cant find the article on their website for you but I have one and have had no problems except a weird large cursor bug when used with an ATI gfx card (a quick BIOS update fixes this though). If you are interested there is a review online of the ]GA-P55M-UD2H which is a version with onboard graphics, which you of course don't need.

Want even more confusion? The mobile i7 processors launched with i7-720QM series and i7-820QM which were quad core but newer i7-620M series is dual core with hyperthreading (in a bid to reduce massive heat I believe). Its the Q at the end that denotes if its Quad core! To add to weirdness is that base speed for 720 is 1.6Ghz but base of 620 is 2.66Ghz. 720 has 6Mb cache, 620 4Mb.

Can anyone from that work out which is better in real life?!

Now could they make the naming less coherent of they tried?? :roll:

Just be aware the GA-P55M-UD2 is mATX. It has had great reviews though.

its quite simple really, or i thinkit is with the new i series!

i7 9xx series require a 1366 socket and supports dual sli / x fire with 16x on each slot, plus triple channel memory. They are quad with HT.
i7 8xx series are 1156 socket, and supports sli on a 16x / 8x per slot, and only dual channel memory. These are also quad with HT

i5 7xx series are 1156 socket. sli on 16x / 8x and dual channel. Quad but no HT

i5 6xx series are 1156 socket, same sli, and dual channel. Dual core with HT and integrated GFX. These require the H55 mobo for the integrated gfx to be used. if placed in a p55 board, the integrated gfxx cant be used.

i3 5xx series are the same as the 6xx series, BUT they dont have a turbo boost mode. All other processors here will clock themselves faster if you need more CPU, or if not all the cores are being utilised. i3 does not have this.

Now showing £129.24, even more of a bargain! Whoops forgot to add delivery!

Thanks for the recommendations guys! Maybe your right, mATX could be the best way to go as I'm not going to be doing anything crazy with the board...

Your Gigabyte board looks pretty good, as well as the ASUS P7H55-M PRO (I don't have a thing for Asus, it just happens to be a v cheap board :-D)

The GA board looks like it has good audio, and tbh that is one area where spending more is worth it...

What are the main drawbacks in using mATX? Performance is about the same, right? Just less space for big/dual cards?
