Nice piece of desire but gamers would love to know a few more stuff.
First, are there any reason to replace i5 2500K with this new cpu, imo no way?
Second, who wants to use a 100 quid cooling with the 150 quid chip for gaming? Yeahh it's fun to be tested but hey, I could have unload 250 quid for the i7+Freezer etc. at first, imo?

The idea is matey for a lot of us having a quiet rig is important. Nothing artic make will ever be quiet once you clock it.....

Take the rig away from a battle station
Good point Tom. Been there with a custom watercooling system plus GTs plus fan-controller. As to AC, they offered a number of great cooling stuff in the past ie. Accelero and Freezer series, not to mention the best-for-the-money part

They were cheap matey, it was like the first stop after a stock cooler.

Once you get away from not having the money to spend on a cooler any better you soon realise that decent temps and quiet performance is worth paying a bit extra for.

OK, just finished watching the video. As great as always. But the best part was the "tsk tsk"

Now, I've got this chip and the Asus "Hero" (because I got it for MUCH lesser than MOST good z87 mainstream boards and I do like the features). I'm really stuck on the RAM decision though. The Corsair Vengeance PRO ones aren't available yet, however there are some pretty fast (c7, c8) 16GB 1600/1866MHz TridentX DC kits, as well as the plain vengeance c10 kits available for about almost the same price. I have not yet been able to test the chip and board bwcause of the lack of RAM. My question is... is it worth waiting for the PROs or the older vengeance ones (or TridentX) are good-enough? I do fps sp gaming but also do occasional photo/video editing among other "normal" stuff.
