MSI P67A-GD65 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
MSI P67A-GD65 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Comes with an updated BIOS and I overclocked my 2500k to 4.1ghz without messing with any voltages other than setting my ram timings. Also runs nicely with the CM 212+, temps are currently 28C.

Cons: I have four USB connectors on my front panel, I was only able to connect two of them into the mobo, but it's fine, there's plenty of room on the back.

Overall Review: 2x2g g.skill ripjaw series (9-9-9-24 1600mhz) i5 2500k @ 4.1ghz evga GTX 560 Ti 1tb hdd 6.0gb/s 750tx corsair

Pros: Awesome sound quality, microphone works great, sound control is great, and of course, it's cheap.

Cons: Starts to hurt my ears after two hours, doesn't fit on very tightly, but for it's price, I don't think I should expect very much.

Great PSU

CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX750 V2 750W ATX12V v2.31/ EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC High Performance Power Supply
CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX750 V2 750W ATX12V v2.31/ EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC High Performance Power Supply

Pros: Enough cables for SLI and a ton of case fans. Running SLI GTX 560 Ti's right now along with an i5 2500k, definitely enough power

Cons: Isn't modular

Amazing Card!

EVGA SuperClocked 01G-P3-1563-AR GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: Idling at 27C in a CM Storm Scout with decent cable management and 65C full load with auto-fan on. I manually change the fan speed to 70% while gaming, and temperatures usually fall between 55C - 60C. Maxes out everything I throw at it (1680x1050), runs BC2 and WoW like a champ while staying cool.

Cons: None

Great processor!

Pros: I bought this processor along with an MSI mobo (p67-gd65) because I wasn't planning to overclock. But in fact, it's actually very easy, the multiplier goes up to 41 and you don't even need to mess with the voltages to get up to 4.1 ghz despite this processor being distinct from it's unlocked brother. All you have to do is change the ram timings, and you're set. Temps for all four cores are between 18 to 20 Celsius on a CM 212+. Simply incredible.

Cons: None!

Overall Review: This CPU has xtremely low power consumption, runs very cool, and it ramps up to 4.1 ghz when the extra power is needed during games. Currently running BFBC2 @ 70+ FPS, maxed out (1680x1050). MSI P67-GD65 2x2gb G.Skill Ripjaw (9-9-9-24 1600mhz) CM 212+ CPU Cooler evga GTX 560 Ti 500gb WD 6.0gb/s corsair 750tx CM Storm Scout case

Well Designed

Cooler Master Storm Scout SGC-2000-KKN1-GP Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: - Case is very well designed and has a nice black finishing touch to it - Optimal cable management for a mid-tower - Convenient way to add/remove drives without the use of tools - Great airflow along with a lot of room, allows for two additional fans on the side panel as well - Can fit any GPU on the market - Button to turn off LEDs on the stock fans

Cons: It would have been great if the case came with a fan controller, but even then, the fans are still quiet while running at full speed so I can't really complain!
