Pros: Great MSI bios setup, relatively easy installation, no problems so far, very reasonable price, PCI 3.0 slot, attractive color scheme
Cons: None thus far
Other Thoughts: I currently have this paired with an i5 3570k and a GTX 670 and there's nothing to not to love. Very reasonable higher mid-range build, would definitely recommend.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great for gaming, easily overclockable, snappy Windows performance, fast boot times
Cons: Stock cooler is not quite as good as AMD's, but who really cares?
Other Thoughts: Decided to move towards an Intel build after almost 2 years of putting up with an FX-8120. To say that the performance difference is dramatic would be an understatement. Although I had a formidable video care (ASUS GTX 670 2gb), any CPU heavy game would would bring my 8120 to it's knees. After swapping out the bottlenecking 8120 for the 3570k along with a new MSI Z77A-G41 motherboard, everything is now super-playable. In some cases, I'm managing THREE TIMES the FPS of my prior build. There's really nothing to be unsatisfied about. Paired with a decent video card, this 3570k is a beast.READ FULL REVIEW
