Do you have you a question about the Intel Core i3-12100F Desktop Processor, 3.3GHz Base, 4.3GHz Turbo, 4 Cores (4P+0E), 8 Threads, Socket LGA1700, 65W TDP, 12MB Cache, No Graphics, Intel Laminar RH1 Cooler?

Q: Hi there I have two quetions: Question 1 does it come with thermal paste? Question 2 by turbo speed of 4.3ghz how do I achieve that because you can’t overclock it?
Answer by Website User on 10th August 2022
Yes, the cooler has pre-applied paste. The base & boost speeds are built into the CPUs behaviour. The motherboard & operating system work together to balance the behaviour. It is not an overclock, it is boost behaviour.

Purchased all the parts for my new PC with CCL, at really good prices, and it was delivered very quickly. Absolutely no issues with this CPU and works like a dream.

Best value for money CPU on the market.

All about the Bass.

Don't estimate this CPU as it's a i3, games run fast and it's a low powered CPU. You should consider the13th gen 13100F the successor of this CPU and should considered this if on Sale.

My order arrived on time but it was sent in a Plastic Jiffy bag with no other protection. i have never had a CPU delivered like this before, so this is the reason i am giving this a 1* they should of put the CPU box in another outer box with bubble wrap to keep it protected. NOT JUST A PLASTIC JIFFY BAG.

Fantastic performance value from the chip itself. Included stock cooler is decent but probably going to be a bit too loud with gaming or multithreaded workloads. As the CPU doesn't have an integrated GPU you're likely buying this for those reasons so consider that the stock cooler will likely need to be replaced. Slight annoyance with the stock cooler is that the pre-applied thermal paste is not shielded or capped in the box so it was easy for me to accidentally smear it while removing it.

Amazing value for money, running with an rtx 2060 this is running my games on high with over 60 fps on every game

Price/performance wise this is a great cpu - there arent many home workloads that need a faster CPU and given all cores are performance cores theres no sign of throttling. With good ram and a fast ssd theres really not any perceivable performance falloff that Ive come across (and even comparing to an M1 which is an incredible processor)

Does what it needs to do. Very good

Remarkably quick for a low end proc. Great for budget gaming and at an affordable price point.

Great value and a solid performer, perfect for gaming

So cheap for the performance it offers. If you are just a gamer like me, don't bother with anything higher end


June 2022

CPU for my first build. Great product, reliable and fan comes with thermal paste included (great because I forgot to buy some!). Pins to secure it to motherboard are slightly frustrating as rather than be screwed in they are pin insert that locks, meaning they need quite a bit of pressure to secure in place. This is meant to make it easier but I found them popping out and it took a few attempts to get right. For a novice like me, if it wasn't for my attention to detail it would be easy to think the fan is 'secured' when it wasn't

Exceptionally fantastic budget CPU. For such a low price you are getting the performance of a high end CPU. So far I've got nothing but great gaming performance from this chip. Really recommend it.


April 2022

Very fast and efficient but 12400f is probably a better option
