Can you read me the 12V rail amperages please? i3 2100 is a good buy, but also the last gen i3 is cheaper and overclockable....albeit a dead end socket (1156). Oh yes, here it is... Output Voltage : +12V -12V Max Current 10A 0.5A Ya, i thought same about LGA 1156....but what is the main difference between lga1156 and lga1155 sockets except pins? m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
