  • Summary: I might have bought a different model if I knew then what I know now. CAD software is typically single-threaded (except for rendering), but benefits without overclocking. I also have a graphics card now, so I don't need on-chip graphics.
  • Pros: Speedy & Reliable
  • Cons: None

A Lot Of Bang For the Buck

  • Pros: Fast, cool and quiet with aftermarket cooler. The onboard video is more than adequate. I paired it with an Asus P8Z77-V-LK and I am very happy.
  • Cons: The intel heatsink is cheesy. Buy an aftermarket. I used a Zalman CNPS9500.
