Wondering if 90W ISK110 Antec case is enough for this cpu (that has 90W psu).

I'm in awe at the crazy processing speeds people have no a days at the $300 mark but I'm not entirely sure it's not wasted $ that can be spent else where. Are the high end games now a days super threaded? I know windows 10 is suppose to run better on multiple cores and stuff. I remember doing research on the topic and don't CPUs usually idle waiting for blocks of data from RAM and mainly use like two cores for 99% of the time? Wouldn't it be better to save the $200 and spend it on a better video card or SSD?

I guess it's too late to be asking these questions because I already bought one of these i3s...


Edit: I totally forgot that cache is shared now a days among all the cores. So 2 cores using 4 megs of level 3 cache is far worse than 4 cores using 8 megs.... ah wells, still a good deal in my book

I have an i3 6100 and have been amazed at its power. I came from a mobile i7 ivy bridge.

Any good deals on an LGA1151 board to go with it?

I bought my brother an i3 6100 and its a powerhouse for $120. If you're looking at budget gaming, this slightly faster i3 6300 for CHEAPER is a hell of a deal imo.

These motherboards look awesome for the price. It looks like there are LGA 1150s on the list as well. You are looking for the LGA1151 boards. I got the $89.99 one.

I think it has like 3 PCIE 3.0 slots and supports all types of memory with 4 slots.

I think I can SLI two vid cards that run at PCIE3.0 X8 slots if I want to upgrade and get a 2nd card later on. If I see really cheap / good memory, this board will likely support it (planning on watching for cyber monday / black friday deals).

The caps are rated 12000. the best caps i've seen so far are rated at 15000 and normal ones are rated at 10000 I think. so the motherboard should last a while i'm guessing.

At 90 bucks, it's only like 20-40 bucks more than the cheapest boards out there too. The down side is you'll have to flash the bios and update your drivers to get everything to work right. not a huge deal to save some coin.

I also got some rip jaw memory from the same guy who posted that motherboard. I bought all the items he posted recently for a whole new computer. He's super slick!

double checked everything was compatible here
