CPU Full Speed - 130W
No matter OC to 4G or 4.6G, the standby power consumption is lower than 70W.
The full speed gap is bigger, but the highest is around 130W. Itís very green platform.
If CPU works at default 3.2GHz, the power consumption will be much lower.
Finally, pull CPU voltage to 1.488V, 655K air cooling can OC to 5GHz.
Intel Core i5 655K OC 5G / windwithme
Early Jan, I OC Core i5-660/661 CPU to 5GHz and now 655K also can OC to 5GHz.
And using 655K 5GHz to enter OS, the voltage is lower to 1.488V. You can see Intel CPU yield rate is improved.
Since Intel launched LGA 1156 in early 2010, 2 Cores CPU started to built-in GPU.
It becomes a new choice of ITX market, price and performance. CPU combination is more vary.
There are Core i3-530/540, Core i5-650/660/661/670/655K.
The price is also more flexible for different budget.
For MB, early this year DFI launched LANPARTY MI P55-T36, and few months later ECS announced H55H-I and GIGABYTE GA-H55N-USB3.
These 3 models all break the old barrier and image for this kind of products.
They all emphasize OC and rich BIOS items. The performance is almost same as Micro ATX or ATX MB.
No matter NooteBook or Desktop PC all go for smaller form factor.
Like PC, the normal size is ATX and smaller goes for Micro ATX.
Now, MB starts to move to ITX, and more MB brands provide the products.
Also Intel pushes new series Core i3/i5 CPU, 32nm manufacture and built-in GPU technology.
This year, ITX visibility is higher. I hope ITX products can be more popular and more brands to join this competition.
The customers can enjoy smaller PC which saves home space and good PC performance.
