"List price" is the suggested retail price provided to us by our vendors. We make no representation that a substantial number of these products have been sold or offered for sale at the list price. Actual retail prices in your area may be substantially different. Since we sell products on a national basis, it is not possible to know if our merchandise is sold at list price in any particular location or at any particular time. "You Save" reflects the difference between our price and the vendor provided list price shown on our sites. Since the list price may be different than the actual retail prices in your area, you may not actually realize a savings of this amount.

Manufacturers sometimes ask that retailers not display a price if it drops below a certain amount. The "Click here to see Lowest Price" message indicates that the price of the item is so low that the manufacturer requested that it not be advertised (that is, displayed). In a brick-and-mortar store, you would probably have to ask a salesperson what the price of the product is. At eCOST, by clicking on "Click here to see Lowest Price" you are essentially asking to see the price, at which point we show it to you.

CPU, Chipset and Graphics features

Socket LGA1155 for Intel 2nd/3rd Generation Core i3 and Xeon E3-1200/12x5 v2 Processors

The latest Intel 2nd/3rd generation Core i3 and Xeon E3-1200/12x5 v2 series processors in the LGA1155 package are supported, with memory and PCI Express controllers integrated to enable 2-channel (4 DIMM) DDR3 memory and 20 PCI Express 2.0 lanes. This provides great graphics performance. Intel 2nd/3rd generation Core i3 and Xeon E3-1200/12x5 v2 series processors are among the most powerful and energy efficient CPUs in the world.

Intel C216

The Intel C216 Express is the latest single-chipset design, supporting the new socket LGA1155 Intel Core i3 3rd generation processors and Intel Xeon E3-1200 v2 server processors. It improves performance by utilizing serial point-to-point links, allowing for increased bandwidth and stability. Additionally, the C216 comes with two SATA 6Gb/s and four SATA 3Gb/s ports for faster data retrieval, doubling the bandwidth of current bus systems. It also supports Intel's iGPU integrated graphics.

Intel Smart Response Technology

SSD Speed with HDD Capacity
Intel Smart Response Technology boosts overall system performance. It uses an installed fast SSD (min 18.6GB available capacity required) as a cache for frequently accessed data. Key benefits include reduced load and wait times, and lower power consumption through the elimination of unnecessary hard drive spin. This technology combines SSD performance with hard drive capacity, operating up to 6X faster than a hard drive-only system.

Intel Smart Connect Technology

Auto Application Refresh. Less Waiting Time
Your computer can receive web updates with fresh content for selected applications, even when the system is in sleep mode. This means less time waiting for applications to update and sync with the cloud, leading to a more efficient computing experience.

Intel Rapid Start Technology

Instant Awake your PC from Sleep Mode
Allows your computer to quickly resume from a low-power hibernate state in seconds. Saving your system memory to the designated SSD, it provides your computer a faster wake-up response time, while still keeping the energy use low.
