INTEL CORE i3 2100 OR i3 2100T ON INTEL DH61WWB3 MOTHERBOARD

How is INTEL CORE i3 2100 OR i3 2100T ON INTEL DH61WWB3 MOTHERBOARD, according to Performance AND Heat?

LOOK AT SPECIFICATION :
PROCESSOR - INTEL CORE i3 2100 3.10 GHz OR INTEL CORE i3 2100T 2.50 GHz
MOTHERBOARD - INTEL DH61WWB3
RAM - 4GB DDR3 (1 STICK)
POWER SUPPLY - 550WATT

GPU -ATI HD 6770 OR ATI HD 6850 OR HD 6790(neglect the P.S.U it will require)


MOBO i mentioned, supports PCI-Express 2.0.

- But, is this Mother-Board suitable to support this GPU?

- How do you Benchmark the INTEL CORE i3 2100 3.10 GHz on INTEL DH61WWB3 ?
- How do you Benchmark the INTEL CORE i3 2100T 2.50 GHz ?
According to Factor of : Performance AND HEAT ?


P.S - I have heard, NOT sure that, this board is in-capable of supporting the GPU's I mentioned and arise aFACTOR OF LOW PERFORMANCE AND OVER HEAT.
PLEASE CORRECT ME.

  1. The 2100T is oem and runs at 35 watts, great for an htpc setup. I haven't seen any benchmarks with it; it's not a performance cpu, but designed to save energy. It should run cooler than the regular 2100; similar to a laptop cpu. This Intel motherboard supports it, according to their website. The board is listed without the B3 at the end. All models for this board are covered in the spec. You'll need an aftermarket heatsink, such as one by coolermaster or xigmatec, which are priced right and will cool your cpu better than the stock Intel heatsink. I wouldn't buy this cpu unless saving energy is your main goal, running 24/7. If you want performance, get the regular 2100, which frys had for $79.99 last week.

    Okay I admit with you for i3-2100.
    But is this Combination good ? i.e INTEL DH61WWB3

    - Are there issue's of NOT SUPPORTING GPU's like ATI HD 6770 OR ATI HD 6850 OR HD 6790(neglect the P.S.U it will require) ?
    - Is there issue of over-heating of this Combination on MOBO OR Processor OR Both ?

    Please give your suggestion.
  3. One piece of advice when posting in a public forum....

    Do not use ALL CAPS. That is the equivalent to shouting, and some people tend to ignore such threads.
  4. Quote:
    DH61WW is a very low end board, even by Intel standards, why ?
    1. no USB3.0
    2. only 2 DIMM slots
    3. no SATA 6gb/s
    4. no CPU OC


    Why a H61WW is good for low end builds?

    1. It supports all Core i series CPUs
    2. It can run any single GPU at it's max potential if coupled with the right CPU
    3. u dont need more tahn 4GB for everyday life
    4. it's cheap
    5. Your combo is fine, just a motherboard lacking features



    Great Explain...
    Could you suggest me any other MOBO with my remaining configuration.

    Thank you . .
  5. what about the AsRock H61M-U3S3 or the Gigabyte H61M-USB3? both have 3.0 (which i think the intel one lacks) and should be around $70-$80

    Does this support Nvidia graphic card?
