A low watt build i7-2400s 4x 2.5ghz 65w?

post #1 of 2

Hi guys redface.gif

Was probably thinking of making a low wattage cpu media player build for my tv. Thats actually a really nice cpu for the watts when ya look at it and its 4 cores as well, 2600s looks nice but couldnt find it. Prety sure it idles really low as well.

Any ideas if this cpu is crippled or limited whatever. Could only find 2400s
rated at 2.5GHz (3.3GHz Turbo Boost) 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache LGA 1155 65W. Wanted to try 2 builds wasnt sure maybe with 2600k. 2600k idles around 55-60 watts and loads at 120-200.

If its strictly for media get a dual core you don't need a quad for a low power application.
