CPU And Cooler
Processor: Intel Core i3-2100
Each of the Core i3-2100’s two physical cores is cable of managing two threads at the same time thanks to Intel’s Hyper-Threading technology. This 32 nm, LGA 1155, Sandy Bridge-based chip is clocked at 3.1 GHz, has 2 x 256 KB L2 cache, a 3 MB L3 cache, a fixed clock ratio, and no Turbo Boost technology, putting it in an entirely different league than the more popular Core i5 and Core i7 parts.
CPU Cooler: Intel Retail Boxed Heatsink & Fan
The boxed cooler consists of a rather familiar orb-style aluminum heasink, PWM fan, and a push-pin mounting bracket.
