CPU is Intel Core i3-3220, most entry Ivy Bridge so far.
The clock is 3.3GHz, physical 2 Cores with Hyper-Threading for 4 threads, called 2C4T.
It?s 22nm, TDP 55W and 3MB L3 Cache.

System Performance Test
CPU 99.8 X 32 => 3292.41MHz
DDR3 1796 CL9 10-9-27 2T

Hyper PI 32M X4 => 14m 14.585s
CPUMARK 99 => 514

Nuclearus Multi Core => 14268
Fritz Chess Benchmark => 13.29/6378

CrystalMark 2004R3 => 191818

CPU => 3.17 pts
CPU(Single Core) => 1.32 pts

PCMARK7 => 3099

Windows8 Experience Index - CPU 7.2

Core i3-3220 single thread performance is very high. 2C4T structure also works well for multi-tasking.
If you have higher performance demand for file converting or graphics related applications, you can consider Core i5 or i7 CPU. It will improve the performance.

DDR3 1796 CL9 10-9-27 2T
ADIA64 Memory Read - 18452 MB/s
Sandra Memory Bandwidth - 22463 MB/s
MaXXMEM Memory-Copy - 19663 MB/s

DDR3 1995.4 CL9 11-10-27 1T
ADIA64 Memory Read - 19416 MB/s
Sandra Memory Bandwidth - 25345 MB/s
MaXXMEM Memory-Copy - 20886 MB/s

Ivr Bridge Momory Controller improves a lot. B75 chip can reach DDR3 2000.
Previous Sandy Bridge CPU with entry chipset only supported DDR3 1066~1333.
Comparing Intel two generations, DDR3 clock improves a lot. The bandwidth increases 25%.

Temperature (Room is 19)
Enter to OS Desktop - 26~28

CPU Full Speed - 47~49
LinX 0.6.4

The test above is using Intel original cooler. The result is quite good already.
22nm is another Ivy Bridge advantage. Core i3-3220 temperature is quite low in default clock.
If installing in chassis, I estimate the temperature will rise 5~8 degree C more which is still acceptable.
