    2500k still kicks is ass in almost everything though, it's definitely not a bad CPU for some things but could/will bottleneck in CPU intensive games due to poor ICS.

    Maybe in games, I wouldn't say it kicks its ass in everything

    I do have hopes that future apps, games, and OS's will take better advantage of the 8 cores.

    2500k still has better overclocking headroom and doesn't take as much power, I just find it a strange that you clearly bought the computer with gaming in mind yet bought a processor that will bottleneck the 570s, looks like you should of done a bit more research.

    Again, I do more than play games.
    I knew that the 2500k was better for gaming.

    But the 2500k is only very slightly worse than the 8120 when all cores utilized in only a few things which is pretty much removed when you consider the 2500ks overclocking prowess anyway.

    Having an opinion doesn't make you an ass, insulting someone else for having an opinion that is different than yours makes you an ass, but you haven't done that so far.
    Well, as far as I know you haven't.

    They are opinion, because the 2500K does not beat the 8120 in every way shape and form.

    I really like that heatsink, which is weird because yellow is usually a huge turnoff to me.

    Anyone know where to get Bitfenix cases? Anyone I see with them is Canadian or European

    They also have their official store listed as well, so you might want to just order through them.

    From this:
    to this:

    My old mainboard broke and I bought a new one, with new RAM and CPU.
    At the same time I had to RMA my GTX 460.
    I will fix the cable management when my new GPU arrives and I need a new CPU Cooler.

    Or unscrew the right part of the motherboard, route the CPU power under the motherboard and screw the board back in place, should be easy with stand-offs.

    Yeah, but what? I like the design on the outside. But its pretty ugly inside.

    And, I don't really care that much how my CPU cooler looks like. But I can't say it's beautiful.

    But, right now I can't put money to make my computer looking better. I'm going to buy Razer Tiamat 7.1.
