ASRock 990FX Extreme4 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great O/C capabilities!! Got my FX-8350 running at 4.8GHz with a minor voltage increase with an aftermarket HSF.

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: Will follow up a few months down the road to update this review!

Intel Core i3-4340 Haswell Dual-Core 3.6 GHz LGA 1150 54W BX80646I34340 Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4600

Pros: High Clock Proc, LOW POWER!!, dual-core with hyperthreading. Overall this Proc is holding its ground in my virtualized environment. Have it running Server 2012 with Hyper-V enabled and running 4 VM's. Just slightly slower than the processor it replaced which was the older gen i5-2500K.

Cons: None so far! Haven't tried to OC it yet but its running nicely at its stock speed.

Other Thoughts: Haven't tested the integrated graphics as its being used in a virtual environment.

Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge Quad-Core 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W BX80623I52500K Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 3000

Pros: This thing is a beast! bought this to build a workstation and daium i impressed! I wanted to overclock it just slightly but didn't want to have it running at that speed constantly so i all i did was changed its turbo boost speeds in the bios to go from 3.7GHz to 4.5Ghz without having to adjust any voltage! So now it idles at around 1.6Ghz while using the PC to work , but once i start utilizing more of the CPU it will turbo boost itself upto 4.5GHz! Amazing! idles at 28C , and under 100% load at 4.5GHz goes up as high as 58C.. i COULD invest some time in ACTUALLY tweaking it to OC higher but whats the point ? 4.5GHz is plenty enough!
Specs are as follows : GIGABYTE GA-Z68AP-D3(R2.0) LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard /// COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 /// EVGA 01G-P3-1431-KR GeForce GT 430 (Fermi) 1GB /// Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 /// and of course the beast Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz

Cons: NONE! well.... wish it was cheaper!

Other Thoughts: I was debating between this CPU or the AMD 8core cpu.. after some research found this one stomps on AMD's 8core FX ...I mean sure 8 cores sounds great but really ? when are they ever going to fully utilize all 8 cores efficiently enough to benefit from them ? When that time comes im SURE the FX8150 will be obsolete by then!..
