Making a I3-4340T? (please read first post before saying about this)

http://ark.intel.com/compare/77481,77480,77769,77771,77770

I've noted that the T versions of the original are .5 GHz less, 150 less MHz graphics base frequency (max dynamic is same though), and Thermal Solution Specification are PCG 2013A instead of the normal PCG 2013C, and it makes it reduce 19 TDP. By underclocking the I3-4340 CPU by .5 GHz, underclocking the MHz graphics base frequency 150 MHz less, will it make it reduce at least 10 to 15 TDP reduce? (dont know if the full TDP reduce because of the Thermal Solution Specification) The reason is because I wanted the i3-4330T but it's OEM, not boxed, and i3-4130T is HD Graphics 4400, instead of the HD Graphics 4600.

  1. Hello?
  2. Generally speaking, lowering / restricting the frequencies can lower the maximum TDP of any CPUs. Doing so can also mean you might also be able to lower the voltage to the CPU which in turns means lower power consumption and lower TDP. The motherboard's BIOS can be used to adjust the voltage if it provides those options.

    Not sure what the specific difference is between the HD 4400 and the HD 4600 other than the frequency. However, I suspect the HD 4400 has fewer shaders which is a measure of graphics performance. More shader units generally means more potential performance, but also higher TDP.
  3. The haswell I3s might be different but my Ivy I3 I put in my parent's comptuter I can't change the multi so you couldn't underclock it if you wanted to. So I think your best bet is to either deal with the higher TDP, or get teh T model that is OEM

    Thanks for an answer I've been waiting days lol :), btw if a processor can't overclock, it can still underclock and undervoltage, right? All Micro ATX motherboarda can undervolt? This one can?: cant find one -_- they are all US only (micro ATX)

    This one isn't Ivy (Ivy Bridge) but Haswell (4th gen), thanks for taking interest though :)
  5. I have an Ivy bridge I3, and a Z77 board I had laying around running it, there is no place in the bios to change the multiplier to underclock it. Didn't look for voltage, but it won't matter if its clocked the same. I'm pretty sure you can't underclock an I3.

    Lower voltage would lower the power consumption of the CPU and generate less heat.

    But there are programs that can overclock, haven't you checked those?
  8. No, the I3s are locked down and supposedly laser cut to only run at one speed, I dont' think there is anything you can do to them.
  9. Best answer
    You cannot overclock a Sandy Bridge or newer i3.

    Voltage is that most get TDP also, I've used overclock calculator and lowering .10 voltage reduce more TDP than reducing .5 GHz

    ok

    Well, I just need a good MOBO cheap (less than 100$), I've searched in Amazon and ALL except about 2 that get outside (live in Puerto Rico) but its expensive or have something dont want, anyone have one?
  11. Newegg ships to Puerto Rico.

    Thanks :D The problem I've found with Newegg is high shipping and availability, but I will see more or have to stay with that lol. There are two solutions but I will get the on-topic one ;)

    Thanks logainofhades, Supahos and jaguarskx :)
