Optimizing the Intel Core i3 with the MSI P55-GD65 Motherboard

After a short time ago Intel processor issued a new series, we had a chance to try out a class processor low end of the line Intel Core series. This time the processor is on trial is the lowest caste Intel Core Intel Core i3, the series that we use is the Intel Core i3 530. Intel Core i3 530 has a specification:
Clock Speed:
133 MHz
Process Size:
Transistor count:
382 million
# of cores:
Cache L1:
128 KB
Cache L2:
Cache L3:
4096 KB
Die size:
MMX, SSE, SSE2, SSE3, SSE4.2, Intel 64, SMT, EIST, XD-Bit, IVT, TXT

With Clock Speed ​​2.93 GHz core 2 and core number of fruit and of course has a hyperthreading processor technology will soon replace the class Intel Core 2 Duo. Although the specification of all kinds of Intel Core i3 uses the internal graphics card (iGPU) on the core processor, but in testing this time we do not use the internal graphics card. This is due to the testing conducted using Intel's P55 chipset mainboard with that do not support the use of an internal graphics card on the core-core processor, which we tried to look for in testing times is a performance that can be obtained from an Intel Core i3 530, one of the overclocking capability.

MSI P55-GD65 mainboard uses the Intel P55 chipset and supports the use of Intel LGA 1156 socket for Intel Core i5 i3/Core / Core i7. This mainboard also been using the newest type of DDR3 memory that supports the use of a high FSB settings, so the process will be easier overclocking without restriction limited memory divider. Another reason we use the MSI P55 mainboard - GD 65 is the use of the mosfet on the mainboard is already equipped with a heatsink and Dr Mos that use server-class components, and between the two mosfet that there is, linked by a special pipe that delivers the release of 8mm thick heat very well. Features that are not less important than the mainboard MSI P55 GD-65 is the OC Genie, which is a quick way to speed the process Overclocking with the addition of each + / - 5 Ghz just by pressing a special button on the mainboard with a very quick and easy.

The first test done is do a test by default to get the standard rate in this test.

Test that we do only use 4 pieces of software are: 3DMark 2006, 3DMark Vantage, Cinebench 10 and Super PI. Each of the software we use is specifically to get certain points that can differentiate under standard conditions with the conditions of the optimization processor overclock way. Indeed there are many ways to search for the optimization of a processor, but the way in which perhaps the easiest and cheapest is to do the overclocking process, because it's been a lot of peripherals that support this process, the manufacturer of the mainboard, memory and processor though sometimes direct the buyer to make the process The overclocking.

Testing the media in this test:

- Processor: Intel Core i3 530

- Mainboard MSI Intel P55-GD65

- Memory Team Elite DDR 3 PCs 1333

- HD 500 GB WDC

- VGA ATI 4870 1 GB AMAZE Zero Therm

- FSP Epsilon 600 Watt PSU

- Operating System Windows 7 Ultimate

Test results at standard conditions / default:
3DMark 2006
(CPU Score)
3DMark Vantage
(CPU Score)
Cinebench 10
Super PI 4MB
Default/ Standar
1m 58s

Pada saat melakukan test menggunakan 3DMark, test yang dilakukan hanya dicari nilai untuk CPU Score saja, karena pada saat melakukan test benchmark kali ini kami tidak mencari nilai untuk kartu grafis (VGA ). Penggunaan 3DMark 2006 dan 3DMark Vantage tidak lebih sebagai perbandingan score untuk platform yang berbeda , 3Dmark Vantage sudah mendukung hardware yang lebih baru dan software yang lebih baru, terutama untuk DirectX10 dan DirectX11, serta operating sistem diatas Windows Vista. Dalam test kali ini, secara umum hasil yang diperoleh dari processor Intel Core i3 diatas rata-rata processor Core 2 Duo untuk kondisi kecepatan processor dan harga yang tidak jauh berbeda.
Hasil Test pada kondisi Overclocking :
3DMark 2006
(CPU Score)
3DMark Vantage
(CPU Score)
Cinebench 10
Super PI 4MB
OC @4,5 Ghz
  Picture: Optimizing the Intel Core i3 with OC at a speed of 4.5 GHz

Overclocking the Intel Core i3 fairly easy to do, with the default CPU Vcore low, the addition of some voltage on the CPU can increase the overclocking potential is quite tolerable. In this test we raise about 0.6 volts from 0.9 volts to 1.5 volts default, a significant increase in the speed of standard conditions rose about 2.9 GHz to 4.5 GHz 1600Mhz. Cooling that we use in this test using air cooling OCZ Vendetta 2, if using stock cooling (cooling inherent) maximum overclocking clocked stable at 4 Ghz only. The results obtained from the process of overclocking the processor Intel Core i3 pretty good, like a score that is obtained from the above table to rise high enough, both the CPU score in 3DMark tests, with Cinebench rendering process, as well as mathematical calculations on the Super PI calculations.

If you want to assemble a new computer with the Intel platform, Intel Core i3 you can make alternative choices, in addition to having a higher yield value than the Intel Core 2 Duo processor, this processor has a pretty good overclocking potential. AMD as Intel's closest rival would be cautious with this processor, it is not possible market AMD Athlon X4 620, X4 630 and Phenom X3 will be displaced by the Intel Core i3.
