For the money you could have gotten a Z77 board and 3570k which would perform better for games, but honestly the CPU isn't exactly holding you back much if at all right now. Just, wouldn't have been my first choice.

Yea man, it's still more than plenty. For the record (I've mentioned it before in many threads) I'm not opposed to AMD. Just most game over anything else and in that case Intel's single threaded performance just reigns supreme.

Sweet I personally havent had any issues at all with this cpu at all. **** it goes from bios to fully loaded windows in 21 secs lol and the cooler master v8 on my cpu keeps that sucker at 20 to 22c on idle gaming never seen it go past 45c. I was just curius about it.
