New PC with Intel Core i3 3220 3.30GHz but not so much improvement over my old PC ??? - Page 2

post #11 of 19
Thread Starter 
Thank you all for the good answers but i also wanted to mention that when i "formatted" a friend's computer which had a Core i3 550 3.20GHz cpu and 4GB Ram i have noticed that it ran much faster than this one with "Ivy Bridge Core i3", so maybe "Intel Speed Step" has to do something because i remember when i checked cpu-z i saw that the cpu is running in full speed "3200 mhz" and mine on default is running on "1500mhz" ??

Try overclocking the processor. Search google for SetFSB; its a good program for overclocking.

you are incorrect..

You just made a sort of downgrade.
Look at this http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/89?vs=677

At stock clocks, they are more or less equal.
But the Q8400 can be overclocked, if you got it to around 3ghz it wouldve wiped the floor with that i3

Intel Speed Step does downclock your CPU so it runs cooler but it also makes it go up when you load it. Try running Prime on your i3 and see it go to 3.3 GHz.

Also, i feel no difference between my heavily OC'd i3-550 (4.6 GHz) and the stock i3-3220 which is on my dad's PC. The only way i do notice a change is if run games or anything that truly taxes the CPU, not just watch videos/move files/type a document.

I just enabled "high performance" in power options and now it runs pretty fast with fully 3.30ghz speed biggrin.gif

does the H61 series mobo allow you to adjust the BLK.?
post #18 of 19
you actually downgraded in processing power. you had a quad and now your running a dual with hyperthreading. as others have mentioned the 7750 is a ton better then that gt 630. instead of buying the i3 I would have just added more memory to the old system and an ssd, ddr3 is cheaper then ddr2 and you were running ddr3 in the old system anyway. im guessing the new board and chip and video card sucked up a lot of your green...

It should (H67 does allow it) but Sandy and Ivy cannot OC via the bclk to save their lives, and i3's are fully locked as they don't have turbo boost. If you get a golden chip you can raise the bclk to 105-106 MHz, which would translate into 165-200 MHz over stock, and that's with a golden chip. My 2600k can clock up to 5.2 GHz via mutilplier and voltage, but even at stock speeds it does not stand anything over 102 MHz bclk. IMHO, bclk OCing gives way too many problems to not even get a 200 MHz boost.

That is exactly why i love my Xeon and i3 way more than my 2600k biggrin.gif
