Re: New Build: Suggestions?
Go with sandy bridge instead:
Newegg.com - ASRock P67 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Newegg.com - Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80623I52500K
it works out cheaper and you will get much more performance out of it. With the memory you chose, all of that will work together.
The CPU does indeed come with stock heatsink, fan and preapplied thermal paste
however, if you do go SB, wait until mid - late February before you buy it, because of this:
