My first attempt at building a computer. Still going strong!

I have no interest in the case, but I'm certainly always interested in hearing someone rant when they rate something 1 star! Any details? :) (on the 2-star PSU and SSD too for that matter!)

The cable management options in the Asgard are terrible, and I've had countless problems with the front I/O. The Agility 3 had a firmware problem kept causing blue screens at first and the first time updating the firmware my OS got corrupted. However, once updated it is working, fingers cross! As for the TX750 I may have made a error when rating, its a decent power supply!

Agreed. Awesome build though.

does the PSU stay in there securely or is there a chance it will fall out (im getting this case for my build)

Only 4.2 Ghz? That CPU overclocks to like 6 Ghz (or so the fanboys say). Seriously though, nice build!

Maybe on LN2, otherwise you're dreamin.

This is was my first attempt at overclocking, didn't want to push it too far lol, and thanks!

5 Ghz on air's a breeze

There are still reasons to use Sandy Bridge in builds over Ivy Bridge. With an expensive cooler like that, he might be planning to overclock, in which case the 2500k will probably do better/run cooler than the 3570k

True, but overall, an OC'ed 3570K will still beat an OC'ed 2500K.

+1 for stating the obvious.

If you overclock both to 4.5 GHz, yes, the 3570k will beat out the 2500K. But you could reach like 5GHz on the 2500k and just 4.5 GHz on the 3570k with around the same temperatures, and then the 2500k wins.

There is really no point for anyone to get Sandy Bridge at this point. Ivy Bridge chips overclock within a very close margin to SB chips, and perform better overall.

Honestly, I agree with Dean, Ivy has a 10% advantage over SB even not overclocked, but since this was built some time ago I assume, then it is perfectly acceptable. It still is a good build!

SB can OC better. Then perform slightly better. That being said, not worth it for some other reasons.

Not THAT close. You can get ~0.4 GHz more on SB (albeit while using more power)

I built this build in August 2011, yes very old. I thought I'd post it as its my first build, I'm proud!

I know that feeling, it's one of the best!

GPU is outdated as well.
