ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Comes with everything I needed while I was building my system, including the OC software that made my OCing extremely easy. Of course, I did my research and it came with a few other things that made it worth buying (like a powerswitch on the motherboard itself and an internal speaker). I was working towards a stable 4.2 gHz on my i5-2500k and it did so beautifully. It came with good drivers and not a truck load of bloatware which made me smile. Also came with LAN software that works pretty well at speeding up my internet a bit.

Cons: Usb port 3.0's only in the back was the only con I could see. Oh, and the main ATX power connector could have been placed a little better as it was difficult for me to actually plug it in. Then again, with the price tag, I really couldn't complain much since I had been doing research and this was the best performance and utility for price IMHO.

Other Thoughts: i5-2500k @ 4.2 gHz OC

Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge Quad-Core 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 3000 BX80623I52500K
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Proves to be stable at 4.2 gHz (I could go higher, but that's only when I am gaming with Skyrim at 4.5gHz). The speed is also what I need for my Adobe Suite stuff, providing no hitch or problems so far. I had actually put my PC together, while doing so I slightly dropped it crooked on my Mobo, but I took it back up gently and remounted it properly, no problems as of now as it appears to have had no damage. Runs pretty stable even after a few hours overclocked and while gaming, love it's headroom for more potential power later, but I tuned it down to give it a bit more lifetime. A much better investment than the higher 2600k at this point.

Cons: Not really a con but a warning to be very careful with it...

Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model 994043
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: With 16gb I can't really ask for much more. Helps to run multiple stuff and games pretty darn well. I have yet to run into problems with a 16gb setup, haven't really had the need to OC it since... well I have soo much Memory everything just runs smoothly ;P

Cons: Isn't 32 gb for the same price lol. Just kidding, it's doing me well.
