Intel Core i5-4570 Haswell Quad-Core 3.2GHz LGA 1150 84W Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics BX80646I54570
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: No bottlenecks here.

Cons: Wasn't free

Other Thoughts: For Battlefield 4 I was really worried if this processor would be fast enough, but I was on a budget. Upgraded from AMD Phenom II X3 720. Boy was I pleasantly surprised! This thing is awesome, it's like my nVidia 560Ti has a whole new lease on life. SO MUCH FASTER! Glad I saved the money and got this i5 instead of i7... now I have more money for a better GPU. I don't see this CPU running out of headroom anytime soon.

ASRock H87M Pro4 LGA 1150 Intel H87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Easy BIOS config, easy to find drivers on their website, super easy BIOS update tool - downloads and updates from within the BIOS. Couldn't be easier. Feels solid enough for a board in this price range. Auto detected correct RAM speed, HDDs, CPU all perfectly fine without a bunch of tweaking required.

Cons: None that I've found so far.

Other Thoughts: Just wish they made this same model with same features in ATX instead of micro ATX form factor (at the same price point of course, ha!)

Crucial Ballistix Sport XT 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model BLS2K4G3D169DS3
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Not a single problem - working great with my Asrock H87M Pro4 motherboard. I didn't have to configure a thing, motherboard saw it as 1600.
Got my pair on sale, was one of the cheapest 8GB kits at the time.

Cons: None that I've found.

Other Thoughts: Judging by other reviews, most problems seem to be with motherboard incompatibilities. Seems that if you have an AMD platform, do your homework first - many don't work with this. But my Asrock H87M Pro4 with Core i5 4570 CPU works perfectly. Crucial has a "guaranteed to work" list of motherboards, luckily mine was on it. Be sure to check it first!
