Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge Quad-Core 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4000 BX80637I53570K
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Same

Cons: Same

Other Thoughts: Update to prior review. One of the push pins was not in all the way resulting in a higher than normal temp. Found this when I was installing a Hyper 212 EVO. AMD secures their coolers far better than Intels push pin setup. Temps get no higher than 132 F momentarily now. I still stand by my opinions in the earlier review. The stock cooler/fan still runs too hot for normal computing and is a joke for such a high performing cpu. I am not overclocking anything, especially on this board.

Western Digital Scorpio Black wd5000bpkt 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Really speeds things up for less than an SSD.

Cons: No longer made.

Other Thoughts: Of coarse, when something this good comes out, it is only for a short time. The replacement is only 5600 rpm, which robs it of its edge. Better then to go with a traditional HD at 7200 rpm.

GIGABYTE GA-B75M-D3H LGA 1155 Intel B75 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Very well made, fired up no problem. Boots up really quick. Good price.BIOS shipped on this board is F14.

Cons: Could have used 2 or 3 sata 6.0 ports instead of one(the one is poorly labeled), some cooling on the power chips only 1 fan connector, the mix of straight and 90 degree sata ports,

Other Thoughts: Running Win 7 and an i5 3570k cpu. I may go with a higher end board when prices drop. I still don't see any reason for the higher prices of Intel products, other than greed. Fedex SmartPost should be renamed FedexTakesForeverPost. I had to go over to the dark side once just for curiosities sake. I still don't see the benefit of Intel products unless you are a high end gamer.( or a stock holder
