Intel Core i5-4570S Haswell Quad-Core 2.9GHz LGA 1150 65W Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics BX80646I54570S
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Low power, low cost quad core with high performance on tap (3.6Ghz) when needed.
No need for aftermarket cooler unless you're pegging the processor for hours at a time.

Cons: Limited overclocking due to locked multipier. But you knew that going into this purchase, didn't you? Just think of the 3.6Ghz turbo performance as free built-in overclocking ;)

Other Thoughts: Gets 7.6 on the cpu portion of Windows Experience Index.
Actually about 3% faster than my i5-3570K (not overclocked) in 7-zip benchmark (16677 mips vs. 16186 mips). If you're not interested in overclocking, this processor is probably the best bang for your buck, especially when you factor in power consumption and cool operation with stock cooler. The highest temps I've seen when running burn-in programs is around 65 C. Typically, it'll be closer to 45-55 C under load.

Rosewill CAPSTONE-450-M 450W Continuous @ 50°C, Intel Haswell Ready, 80 PLUS GOLD, ATX12V v2.31 & EPS12V v2.92, SLI/CrossFire Ready, Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: More than enough headroom for most people. Probably not enough for a dual GPU system, but otherwise it's plenty.
Great reviews online for this model. It has high-end components and meets or exceeds its Gold rating in said reviews.
Good value (I got mine on sale for fity dollars)
Modular means you only use as many cables as you need and pack away the rest. Less case clutter.

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: It is physically larger than any other PSU I've ever seen. Rather than being square in shape, it is slightly deeper than it is wide. No concern for me, I just thought I'd mention it.

ASRock Fatal1ty H87 Performance LGA 1150 Intel H87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Gaming Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: IMO the perfect motherboard for a casual-to-moderate gamer who doesn't care about overclocking.
Great feature set, including port layout, heatsinks, plenty of PCI slots and USB ports.
Nice BIOS, easy to navigate and understand.
Took my i5-4570S with the stock BIOS version (1.50).

Cons: None for me.
