Intel Core i7-2600K Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 3000 BX80623I72600K
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Stupid easy overclocking, low heat generation, low power consumption compared to older designs. Altogether it is more processor than just about anyone needs.

Cons: None thus far.

Other Thoughts: Upgraded to this from a C2D E6850. Needed a better system since the E6850 was seriously holding back my graphics cards and generally wanting more speed for the massive video encoding I do. I just quickly popped bclk to 100 and 47 multiplier to 47 to get a quick 4700 mhz OC first thing. Haven't tried any higher as this is more than high enough for the tasks at hand. Using a Zalman CNPS 9900MAX which is one of the best coolers and has the really big bonus of having a smaller footprint than a Noctua. No need for short ram coolers since no slots are blocked.

CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: 1. Corsair reliability.

2. DDR3 1600 is the fastest speed anyone needs as higher speed DDR3 does not improve performance in anything but synthetic memory benchmarks.

3. Awesome blue color matches my Asus P8Z68 V-Pro nicely.

4. Price. Gotta love the low RAM prices these days.

Cons: Not the lowest latency ram available, but the difference is practically negligible.

Thermaltake Black Widow W0319RU 850W ATX 12V v2.3, EPS 12V v2.91 CrossFire Certified 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Really just rating this to say there's nothing wrong with bottom mounting modular power supplies, as any bottom mount case worth its salt has a grille on the bottom of the case for the PSU to suck air in while it is still mounted in the regular orientation. There should be no PSU flipping. If your bottom mount case lacks a grille, cut a hole for the fan yourself and send a complaint to the case manufacturer to catch up with the competition.

Cons: It's a thermaltake, no cons.
