Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge Quad-Core 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4000 BX80637I53570K

Pros: I replace my Q9550 mounted on an Asus P5E3 by this CPU paired with a MSI Z77A-G41 and the system is much more responsive and snappier. According to the Windows 7 performance index, the CPU goes from 7.4 with the Q9550 OC to 3.4 GHz, to 7.6 with this CPU at normal clock rate. This is not a big difference, however, the memory performance index goes from 7.4 to 7.9 with the same memory kit (G. Skill 1600 MHz, 2X4G)

Cons: The price of Intel CPU is never on special, they are kind of expensive

Other Thoughts: The stock cooling fan is kind of a joke; the heat sink is about half of inch height, way too small if you run demanding CPU application, and forget it if you intend to OC

MSI Z77A-G41 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

Pros: I upgrade it from an Asus P5E3 + Q9550 with 2x4G RAM, 4x500G HDD in RAID0 plus 2 others HDD and HD 7880. For the CPU I use a i5 3570K even thought I'm not a big overclocker, I want to keep mi option opened. The only thing I changed in my system is this motherboard and the CPU; I didn't have to re-install windows 7. I remove every driver related to the Asus MB, I swap the MB+CPU with this one + i5, and I installed the appropriate driver. I didn't have any problem at all. The PC is fast, snappier than before and stable. At $60 ($50 including $10 mail in rebate) you can go wrong.

Cons: All the tools that came with it (from MSI) are very bad software. The only interesting toll, Control Center, is buggy

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL

Pros: Install it, and it was flaw less. Also, even though P5E3 system spec says it can handle up to 2GB memory module, those 4 GB modules runs perfectly well.

Cons: None
