I wanted to build something newer than my 3 years old skt775 e5200 rig (full specs
and power consumption test
I've just oredered:
DDR3 4GB/1600Mhz Corsair 2x2GB CL9[CMX4GX3M2B1600C9]
SSD CORSAIR F80 80GB (instead of 7200rpm 320gb Samsung HDD listed above in the old build)
I already know that I can't overclock my new cpu, and that the RAM will probably run at 1333mhz 1.5v.
- Will I be able to undervolt the cpu? (I'm not referring to the UEFI options, but I wonder if anybody actually undervolted it)
- ASROCK doesn't write anything regarding SATA ports bug in any of their motherboards. I don't know if H61 chipset is unaffected or if they just upgrade their motherboards revision without putting a "B3 REV" label on them.
- Will the power consumption decrease respect to my e5200/hd5670 build?
idle no lcd: 84w
intel burn test: 135w
intel burn test+gpu furmark stability test: 175-180w
