Cons Colour of fans but it's in a case with no window so doesn't matter to me
Summary Bought this on sale and I'm glad I did. Compared to any other offer I've seen nothing seems to come close to this one. Colour of the fans may turn some people off but I don't have a window so it's no concern to me. Runs nice and cool and if I ever want to OC, I know I'll have the setup to support it. Very happy with purchase and would highly recommend.
Summary Got this bundle 2months ago when it was on sale for 219.99 It was a very good deal because of the i5 2500k and the Noctua heatsink included in this bundle. The i5 2500k provides excellent performance that won't cost you a fortune and the Noctua is one of the best heatsink in the market you could find. The Noctua heatsink/fan runs very quiet compare to other aftermarket heatsinks out there.
Pros Excellent CPU and Heatsink, Quality and silent fans. GPU powerful enough for some basic gaming.
Cons Regular price.
Summary Bought this combo on special for 219,99$. This was a great deal. The heatsink is one on the best after market cooler. Keeps cpu at 25°C when idle. It did not go over 35°C yet, while playing L4D2 on the integrated GPU.
CPU handles in a great manner everything I've been throwing at it.
I'm actually using the integrated GPU (intel HD 3000) combined with a H67A-UD3H-B3 Gigabyte Mobo. This GPU runs Left 4 Dead 2 on a 4:3, 19'' monitor, on 1280x1024 resolution without problems. Of course you have to compromise on details quality, but the game is still fun to play, with sufficient details and no lag. Beware though, it will slow down if you plan of using this GPU on a 16:9 ratio monitor with higher resolution or with more GPU-consuming games, as this GPU is not meant for hardcore gaming.
Pros Processor is fast, and with the Noctua cooler, runs coolly. The cooler was stupid easy to install (not that others are complicated, per se)
Cons No hyperthreading (I'm not an expert on this, but the theory of it sounds great) Cooler is quite big, but didn't block RAM slot
Summary I bought this for my brother after being impressed with an i7 2600K. He wanted a decent processor that would last him a while but knew he didn't need the best of the best (he mainly games). Paired it with a pretty basic P67 Asus mobo and am very impressed. Installed easily, no issues whatsoever. The cooler kept it under 50C at stock speeds and it maxes at about 60C overclocked to 4.3Ghz. I'm courting a new, very fast mistress and her name is Sandy.
