Best value and gaming 03/30/2014
Got this cause have no use for Intel Graphics on board, just slows down the cpu from clocking with non-K oc boards. Can do Overclock with Asrock special Z87 Extreme 4 boards, will go up to 3.8 all the time, no overheat on mine. With the click of a button in windows bios, is very simple and value savy.
Can't think of any, other than they should provide us to buy this without the factory heatsink for less, since most gamers will put on at least a 3 pipe heatsink/fan option for $20, could save a little that way.
Don't underrate this processor cause it doesn't have Intel Graphics, it is better that way unless you don't buy a discrete (seperate) card. And in that case, you would want to go with at least the 4000 series graphics on die.
Intel is the best right now, but good ole american competition will bring the prices down again in the future with AMD coming on strong in research and development, I hope.
