If you want to give your money away...just send it to me instead...at least that way you won't be disappointed when the VRMs blow and take your CPU with them...biggrin.gif

Break out the hotdogs and s'mores! I personally would like to go with AMD as well since that is what I have in my Phantom Zone build. With the lack of choices I am going with Intel until more viable and reliable options with AMD thumb.gif

No idea why on earth ASRock would sell a board like that, do they even test their products?

Has always made me wonder why they just don't pull the product, unless people were over-reacting and their board didn't ACTUALLY catch fire, they just got super warm.. It could also have been that the board was in a super confined case, and didn't have airflow through it. Mine should have more than enough airflow, plus water cooling for the CPU... idk. I've been looking on NewEgg for an Intel board, but can't really make up my mind on one. I want to be able to get a super fast, quad-core CPU (don't think I'll really need six or eight cores), but would really like to stay under 300 bucks.. Can someone recommend a board and CPU for me? I also don't know the difference between the I3-5-7's. I plan on using this for some fairly heavy gaming as well...

I have read that small fires have occured with 7 different people. In any case, I would go with the i5 3570k and an Asus P8Z77 I deluxe board, especially if you need the room for your cooler and GPU

Second this! You can always get creative and find a way to hide the blue, be it window placement or using colored tape or something. While I would love my build to look exactly as I wanted it, if the difference between a solid build and one that looks like a nice statue is a bit of blue, i'll take the blue.

But see, I don't want to spend $200+ on just the CPU for a 3.0(+ or -)GHZ. That's the major reason why I've stayed with the AMD builds.

Yeah, the board that I DID have in mind still had a little bit of blue in it. I figured I have the black case, with a blue front Temp/Fan controller that I'm using from my current build... but I was just going to do a black and blue color scheme.
