More about what difference core
  1. core i3 is newer. it is 32 nm meaning it can oc higher, use less energy, and run cooler. they have HT, which means even though they are a dual core, they show up as having 4 threads, and a few other things. basically the i3 is better than most core 2 duos, and definitely cheaper.
  2. yeah, on good air, the i3 can get 4.2 GHz plus easily, where as the core 2 duos might barely be able to go past 3.8 GHz, but it depends on the cpu.
  3. well water you can get anything to that :lol: but good job with those! im a bit more envious of you 1090T though :lol:
  4. hahahahaha, yeah. how do the tri sli 470s go as far as heat? or are they on water too?
  5. hmmmm, thats really good. hows the fps?
