Description

My actual coast was right around 1550.00 at the time of purchase, and that did not include the monitor which I already had. Also, I thought the power supply was modular, and I could have sworn I had only modular checked when I was picking parts, but I was impatient so I just got over it. I will do some more cable management later. What a great case I love those Antecs. The cooler backing fit really snug against the back of the motherboard, but it still worked despite my initial concerns. Good parts always = good computers from my experience. windows score was 7.5 with the lowest score for the processor. and everything else was 7.8 or 7.9.

Not very balanced, for $1500 you could have a 670, an i7, and a better cpu cooler

I don't understand how you got a 2500K and 560 Ti and managed to spend 1500.

What are you using this machine for? You spent way way way way too much for something with this little power. Both the GPU and CPU are good, but not nearly as good as you could've done for that budget.

Does the Antec cooling give you any issues with the reservoir on top?

i5 2500k (sandy bridge) 95 watts. i5 3570k (ivy bridge) 77 watts. You tell me which one generates more heat.

I stand corrected, and I hope Haswell improves on this.

no, ivy bridge runs hotter, its a fact, so accept it

The i5 3570k because of it's 22nm technology. It's more dense then 32nm, making it hotter.

Yes, now I understand, and I hope Haswell runs cooler.

Or a better stock cooler. I might just wait a bit for Haswell for my first build.
