At full speed of CPU: - 105W

There is also a slight lag between the power consumption after overclocking and the default value.
It can be known that CPU overclocking has little effect on the temperature and power consumption.

Intel HD Graphics HD2000 performance test
Preset frequency

3DMark Vantage => P1251

StreetFighter IV Benchmark
1280 X 720 => 30.65 FPS

1280 X 720 => 408

By comparing the built-in 2300K HD2000 GPU with the previously tested 2500K HD3000 GPU, there is a lag of about 30%~40% in its 3D performance.
There is no big difference between the two in this aspect when compared in the Game.
For example, the performances of 2300K HD2000 GPU and 2500K HD3000 GPU in StreetFighter IV are 30FPS and 40FPS, respectively.

HD2000 overclocking frequency
37 X 50 =>1850MHz

3DMark Vantage => P2078

StreetFighter IV Benchmark
1280 X 720 => 44.61 FPS

1280 X 720 => 623

After the overclocking of HD2000, there is a performance increase of over 50% in the three kinds of Game Benchmark softwares mentioned above.
Sandy Bridge’s GPU overclocking scope is greatly increased. Similarly,
the preset performance is also 2~3 times higher than the last generation of i3-540 integrated with H55.
The great leap in 3D performance definitely creates an impact on the M-ATX/ITX market for built-in GPU,
but this also depends on how the competitor -- AMD respond with new chipsets in the future.

1. H67XE is much cheaper compared to the H67 products of other brands;
2. Built-in Power/Reset button, 7-phase PWM power supply design, USB 3.0/eSATA and other extended interfaces
3. BIOS provides CPU external frequency/GPU frequency/DDR3 frequency setting, as well as diverse voltage options.
4. The Sandy Bridge platform has low temperature and low power consumption. It also has more DDR3/GPU performance than the previous platform.

1. BIOSTAR has no channels in Taiwan at present;
2. Segmental adjustment is required when adjusting the external frequency of the CPU from 100MHz to 107MHz.

Performance ratio: ★★★★★★★★☆
Material ratio: ★★★★★★★★☆☆
Specification ratio: ★★★★★★★★☆☆
Appearance ratio: ★★★★★★★★☆☆
C/P ratio: ★★★★★★★★★☆

Intel Core i5-2300 is sold at about NT$5,600 in Taiwan, which is equivalent to around US$ 190.
Core i5-2400 is about NT$5,750, which is equivalent to around US$195. There is a small price difference between these two CPUs.
Specifically, i5-2300 has 2.8GHz and i5-2400 has 3.1GHz; the C/P of 2400 seems to be much higher.
Unless there is a price reduction of 2300 in the future so as to create a price difference between the two, customers may opt for the 2400 CPU.

The tested TH67XE still has the advantages emphasized by BIOSTAR, which include effciency, overclocking and affordability.
Moreover, its material and specification are much better than the low level H67, but its price is lower than the middle and high level H67 of other brands.
The C/P ratio of BIOSTAR is indeed attractive to consumers given its price. It also provides an overvalued choice for consumers with limited budget.
This article mainly shares information on the performance of i5-2300 integrated with H67, and its affordability in many aspects.
It also provides the HD2000 3D performance test.
To those who still have some questions about the 3D performance of HD2000/HD3000,
I suggest you read the previous tests related to 2500K which I have uploaded. Thank you for reading this article:)
