This review is from: ASUS P7P55D-E Pro LGA 1156 Intel P55 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Its from ASUS
Cons: Nothing, really.
Other Thoughts: Overall one of the best motherboards you can get for the i5, with a decent price on it as well.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very overclockable
Price will most likely be going down with the release of the 6xx series
Cons: Nothing really, you need to flash the bios to get manual control of the fans, but not enough of a issue to take off an egg.
Other Thoughts: XFX's support is very good. I had to RMA the very first one I received, unfortunately, however because of XFX's excellent customer support, I decided it didn't warrant an egg off.
For anyone wondering - have mine running stably at 900/1200 with only a 0.05 voltage increase (1.149).
This review is from: Prolimatech Megahalems Rev.B CPU Cooler
Pros: One of the best air coolers on the market with great compatibility, you can't go wrong with this.
Comes with its own thermal paste - and its pretty decent, too
Cons: It's a tad outdated, but still functions very well.
Other Thoughts: For anyone wondering, it comes with two sets of fan clips now (most un-boxing videos from a year or so ago show only one set). Keeps my i5 760 @ 4.0ghz at 32 idle, and 66 under 100% load.READ FULL REVIEW
