Wacky , Poole PC Enthusiast

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Bought for a low end file server, so I didn't need the fastest processor. I was more interested in balancing performance with low consumption. Windows Server 2008 is able to get lower consumption out of this than Freenas 8.3. I guess Windows was able to make more use of the various C-States in the processor.
Windows Server 2008, 3x HDD, MSI H77 MB - idles 40w
Bad points:
none really.

Richard,

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
This is a low cost 2 core 32/64 bit processor which preforms surprising well given its limits and is not far off from the i3.

This pairs up well with the Intel H61 chip set mother boards. I have used the Gigabyte GA-H61N-USB3 mini mother board to allow the use of a PCIe graphic card to improve the HD performance.
Bad points:
No Hyper threading.
No/little over clocking capability.
DDR3 Memory speed limited to 1066MHz.
Only has Intel HD video (Not Intel HD 1000/200/3000)
