Cons: Takes quite a bit of voltage to get the clocks I set out for when I bought this. I read a previous post and, with these 4670k's, there is a lot of variation in the silicon. I've seen people getting 4.5-to-4.6 at stock voltages. It takes me almost 1.34v to maintain 4.5 GHz. Summer, so I drop down to just a hair above 4.4 GHz.
Buy the Intel "Protection Plan" if you plan on pushing the limits on this chip. Basically, the warranty for overclockers.
Other Thoughts: Coming from a 775 rig, this thing is miles ahead of my old "FPS Death Machine."READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Extremely low priced. Light. Comfortable to my grip style. Decent amount of buttons.
Cons: May be too light for some. No LED to see what the dpi is at. Not the smoothest.
Other Thoughts: I bought this mouse on 9/10/12.... Just this week the button under the center wheel has started to fail. It's not ultra smooth or ultra customizable BUT, this mouse has lasted me for YEARS under heavy use. I bought it as a hold over when my R.A.T. 3 died on me (was 7 times more expensive and only lasted 1 1/2 years) while I decided on my new "permanent" mouse. I tried Sorms and Xornets and a coupla others---they all got past over to my girl or nephews and I kept coming back to this mouse as crazy as that sounds.
Buy this mouse and keep it in your drawer. Just in case. Or, buy it and try it. This mouse is no joke. The price has even dropped like 6 bucks since I bought mine.
Pros: Cheap. Lasted more than a year. Well laid out.
Cons: Have had problems with the BIOS since day 1. Freezing/unable to enter BIOS/unable to save screenshots to flash drive... Randomly decides which will be my master and slave drives on it's own. The plastic thing that holds the video card onto the PCIE slot literally just fell right off. I don't even understand how that happens.
Other Thoughts: Probably gonna be my last UD mobo. MSI from here on out. Bought an MSI Gamer and it's got my 4670k @ 4.6 GHz! This Z87X could hardly get it to 4.5 stable.READ FULL REVIEW
