looking for an alternative to Core i7 on LGA 1155

More recently, Intel Xeon e3 processors for socket 1155 cost the same as Core i7. But prices on Aliexpress are changing rapidly, and now you can build a powerful gaming PC on the “Zeon” one and a half times cheaper than on a similar desktop processor. Consider the most optimal options.

It’s no secret that used server processors are one and a half times cheaper than their desktop counterparts, providing the same, and sometimes even better, performance. That is why in the current realities it is possible to assemble a really budget assembly for games or for working with demanding programs.

Until recently, buying a server intel xeon for socket 1155 was not entirely justified, since regular 2nd and 3rd generation Core i7s cost about the same. However, recent price changes have forced intel xeon e3 processors to pay attention as a worthy alternative to home counterparts.

We have already considered Core i7 analogues on older sockets 1156, 1366 and 2011. You can read about them here: Cheap Intel Core i7 analogues on Aliexpress.

It is worth noting that, unlike custom processors, server «zones» do not have an integrated graphics core . However, the difference between the new Core i7 6th, 7th generation is absolutely negligible. From this we can conclude that the old Intel Xeon will be relevant for more than one year.

Sandy Bridge (2nd generation) and Ivy Bridge (3rd generation) processors are compatible for socket 1155. Second generation is marked Intel Xeon e3 12XX , third Intel Xeon e3 12XX v2 . Please note: Intel Xeon e3 12XX v3, v4, v5 do NOT have compatibility with socket 1155 and are not yet suitable for our purposes — to assemble or upgrade a gaming computer inexpensively.

Intel xeon e3 processors Sandy Bridge

The second generation, called Sandy Bridge, was launched back in 2011. The main differences of this generation are support for RAM DDR3 up to 1333 MHz (you can install brackets with a higher frequency), PCI-E 2. 0 and solder under the heat spreader cover, which will allow the processor to last longer.

Server analogues of desktop i5 and i7 received marking Intel Xeon e3 12XX. About a dozen of them were released, but on Aliexpress you should pay attention to only a few copies: e3 1230 , e3 1240 and e3 1270 . The performance of the stones is comparable to Core i7 2600 .

All variants presented have 4 physical cores, 8 threads, 8 MB level 3 cache and support Turbo Boost technology (processor frequency can be increased for a short time). In terms of price, the processor with the last digits in the marking is cheaper. Processors differ only in frequency: e3 1230 — 3.2 (3.6) MHz, e3 1240 — 3.3 (3.7) MHz, e3 1270 — 3.4 (3.8) MHz . Otherwise, these are stones of similar parameters. The difference in price, however, is insignificant. The declared heat dissipation for all is 80 watts.

Ivy Bridge are marked with “v2”. The differences with the previous generation are insignificant: a little more frequency, a little less heat, support for RAM

DDR3 up to 1600 MHz and PCI-E 3.0 . Thermal gum is used under the CPU thermal spreader cover, which is less durable than solder. The cache volume, the number of cores and threads are the same.

Since we are using server processors for a home computer with a regular motherboard, some supported instructions will not be required.

There are many varieties of Intel Xeon e3 Ivy Bridge, but we recommend the following options for performance and price: e3 1230 v2 and e3 1240 v2 . These processors are similar to Core i7 3770 . As with Sandy Bridge, the difference between processors is only in frequency: e3 1230 v2 — 3. 3 (3.7) MHz, e3 1240 v2 — 3.4 (3.8) MHz. It is worth noting that the stones of the third generation are colder — TPD is 69 watts. The difference in cost compared to the previous generation is significant.

Motherboard compatibility missing the “zion” you are interested in , however, in practice, LGA 1155 server processors support 99.9% motherboards. We will post below a link to a verified motherboard from Aliexpress, which is guaranteed to work with all second and third generation Intel Xeon e3. If you already have a working 1155 system, the Intel Xeon e3 processors are the perfect upgrade solution.

Small summary

More recently, server processors under 1155 were too expensive to be considered as a budget counterpart to the desktop Core i7. Now these processors are on average 1.5 times cheaper than standard processors. And, as practice shows, this is not the limit, because prices are changing rapidly — declining, of course. Given that over the past few years, Intel has not made a significant “breakthrough” in technology and has released new generations of processors with minor changes, for relatively little money we get quite up-to-date hardware that can unlock the potential of all modern video cards.

Best processor for socket 1155

Hello everyone! Today we will look at the best processor for socket 1155 — the most powerful server and home option that is suitable for gaming.

Socket LGA 1155 (also called h3) was released by intel in 2011. Designed for CPUs based on Sandy Bridge and subsequently Ivy Bridge.

Although it is no longer the newest computer slot, it still continues to be used in 2019. For PCs that don’t have too high performance requirements, this is one of the best options today. Consider which CPU is better and why.

Intel Core i7-2700K

One of the most powerful Sandy Bridge CPUs. Base frequency 3.5 GHz. Overclocking up to 4 GHz is supported. It comes with a good cooler that makes almost no noise even under high loads. There are 4 cores and 8 MB cache memory.

Intel Core i5-2400

One of the best processors for this socket, but cheaper. 4 cores work in 4 threads. Clock frequency 3.1 GHz. Unfortunately, overclocking is not provided. Built on Sandy Bridge architecture. Designed to work with graphics of any complexity. The integrated graphics core supports simple video games. The cache size is 6 MB.

Intel E3-1230V2

A good quad-core server CPU from the Xeon family, which can also be used in a home computer. When buying such a device, video game lovers should take into account that it does not have a built-in graphics core, and therefore a discrete graphics card will be additionally needed.

The kit comes with a high-quality fan that cools perfectly.
