9th Generation Intel Core i3 Processor
9th Generation Intel processors have introduced the new Solder Thermal Interface Material (STIM) for a more efficient heat transfer that gives greater control over temperatures when overclocking and using your PC for long periods of time. Perfect for the power user or expert gamer who demand lower temperatures under heavy use. The i3 9100 uses 14nm architecture and a 6MB cache for a balanced performance that doesn’t break the bank.
Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0
Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology brilliantly accelerates processor and graphics performance for peak loads and helps the CPU distribute power through the cores. As Hyper Threading has been turned off for the new range, the boost you get from the Turbo feature does not overheat the processor. DirectX 12 Support helps with optimization when running large apps and even 4K content at 60Hz.

What happens after I've placed an order?
Once you place an order with us you'll receive an email confirmation listing all your items ordered. You should keep this email for future reference as it also acts as your invoice. We then start to process your order; the order is transmitted to our paperless production facility, built, checked for quality, handed to our installation engineers who then proceed with setup of any software you've ordered, then run through our burn-in and stability tests, checked once more for quality and finally it's handed to our dispatch department who will pack the order and book it in for delivery. Depending on how busy we are this entire process takes around 3-5 working days.
