More about which 2100 2125 2130
  1. Well the difference really is just a slight core frequency speed increase.

    Unless the price difference is minimal/within budget, then I don't believe its really worth spending the extra on the i3-2130 over the i3-2100 for the sake of 300MHz

    The price difference on NewEgg is about $25 which personally I would probably rather spend elsewhere on the build if the budget was tight.
  2. thanks.. but out of 2100 or 2100 T.. which one.. :)
  3. umm this might be stupid, but according to i5s and i7s, the letter means its overclockable, so ask urself if ur gonna overclock or not if u are then go for the T version if not go for the 2100

    The over-clockable SandyBridge CPU's are the K-series. K-series shows the CPU has an unlocked multiplier. (i5-2500K, i7-2600K ect)

    T is for a low power CPU. The i3-2100T is slower than the i3-2100 (2.5GHz vs 3.1GHz).

    There's about a 20% performance difference when comparing them. REF: http://compare-processors.com/forum/core-i3-2100-vs-i3-2100t-t181.html
