Summary: But seriously. That's what I felt like when I saw how high this thing could overclock (~5.1GHz). I have a liquid cooling system, but it's not nearly good enough to maintain a safe temperature at those speeds. Be sure you always have the appropriate cooling for the speed of your chip! I bought this CPU to replace my previous 3820 that stopped working (you get what you pay for, I guess). This costs a bit more than the 3820, but so far it has been worth it.
Summary: These items you will see were for my son to build his own gaming PC. He loves all of it! He was the one who chose all the parts and is very satisfied with his purchase. Other than that I can't tell you anymore because I do not use his PC. I do know that he really really likes building and choosing what goes into his desktop. He uses this for gaming purposes and says the speed is amazing! He does want to add more, not sure of what, wish I could tell you more.
