Micro-ATX Rig or Laptop - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Thread Starter 
Because I have been out of touch with technology for the last few years, I need a quad core at least and better performance than my current sig (obviously to be an upgrade). Is the i5 a quadcore, because i know the i5 in laptops is a dual core.

A desktop GTX 660 will smoke the 765M. The 765M is closer to a 650 Ti in performance. Take those NVidia part numbers with a grain of salt, the "mobile" versions are always going to match up with a "desktop" number one or two steps lower. E.g. 780M closer in performance to a desktop GTX 680, but with a lower clock speed than the desktop version. 770M is closer to a GTX 660/670, again with a lower clock speed. Etc.

All i5 mobile processors are currently dual core with HT. You need an i7 if you want true quad core in an Intel mobile processor. Most of the i7 are also HT enabled, so 8 threads.

AMD mITX is quite out of the question, they only have a FM2 motherboard. A 4670k is what you need, it is an amzing quadcore. Pair it with an asus/gigabyte/asrock Z87 board and a 760/770 and you'll have a beast that destroys any 2k laptop.

Why people do you do this to me..... mouth is watering now for a beast of an itx..... Think i'm going to go for an i5 quadcore, as the i7 is an extra £100, coupled with a Nvidia 770 smile.gif

You mean a standard 1150 cooler? 1150 isthe new haswell,1155 is the year and 3 months old ivy bridge. Yes cooler fits no doubt but I would advise an aftermarket cooler as the stockcooler is quite loud. I tink the 770 should fit. Better ask in the thread I linked you, there are many people running the cooler master 120 there. Also take a look at the node 304, it is a classier cooler master 120 essentially and fits any GPU and cooler. Thenode 304 is a tad smaller than the cm 120 but a bit heavier. But both have same mobility. The node 304 does not have space for an optical disc drive so you need an external if you want one. It stock fans are also very quiet and has a built in fan controller. Go to the club for beastly mitx and ask some more what you want to know about the cases you are interested in.
