I went through 3 Asus Pro's myself, and one of them fried my cpu idling . I doubt I'll ever go back after all that trouble.

With that said, as long as you buy some newer 1.5v RAM I doubt you will have problems with the latest bios on the Asus boards.

The ASUS P8P67 'problem' is that it sometimes, when overclocking and changing the offset voltage, sets the offset voltage to +.975v making your CPU run at 2.xx volts, this is easily avoided with being vigilant when setting the voltage and its going to be changed in a new BIOS, if it hasn't already.

Personally I love my P8P67 Pro. Properly watched while OCing you should be fine with it.

For Ram I would suggest these:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231444

Much tighter timings although a touch more expensive. But I like having the room to loosen things as needed, not start loose and make it even looser.

Like i stated in the main post i'm not really looking at doing any overclocking. I just want this build to be super fast and super stable.

I'm getting ready to head to Microcenter, gonna at the very least get my sandy bridge, and depending on mobo prices or if they have any good combos running now. And look at a few more things. the line up as of now is:

Gigabyte UD4 mobo
i5-2500k
Samsung F3
Asus 560
Probably corsair for PSU
Gkill ripjaw 4gb
Leaning towards the Corsair 600t SE for case right now, not 100% yet though

False.. 4GB is more than enough for gaming. You wont need 8 unless youre video editing and whatnots.

EDIT: also check out this XFX PSU or look at some Seasonics.
