Summary The motherboard overclocks very easily and has all the new I/O ports (USB3, SATA6, firewire). The only con is that it has only 1 usb2.0 slot so I couldn't plug in my card reader. I mean, really? What would happen if your case had 4 USB slots (which is pretty standard)?
The CPU is pretty powerful and at all that different from the i7-2600k. For around $100 cheaper than the i7, this CPU does the job really well.
Pros 2500k runs 29% faster per clock then my old Q9300 was able to overclock my 2500k to 4.8ghz stable able to run mild oc's at stock voltage (4.2-4.3ghz) suppourts my gtx 460 sli both mobo and cpu run at low temps
Cons only suppourts x8 x8 xfire/sli OC genie feature on mobo greatly overestimates voltage incdluded software is subpar
Summary Overall this processor and motherboard are a killer combination in the current gaming world. It's the fastest gaming cpu you can buy at the moment, matching and even beating the 2600k in most instances(due to the 2600k's HT). Running at 4.8Ghz The cpu runs twice as fast as my Q9300 h 3.2Ghz did. On average with my GTX 460 1GB's in SLI my fps in games increased by 20-25% which is certianly nice, and paired with my ssd my boot times have been signifacntly reduced from 40s to 17s. Upgrading to this cpu made even more of an impact to my computer then from upgrading to an ssd, if you have a Q6600/equivilent or less I would highly reccomend upgrading to SB.
