So pumped, it was not without issue, I had to RMA my Corsair TX750 back to tigerdirect, Overnighted a replacement TX750M to replace it.
I have a 7.7, 7.8, 7.9, 7.9, 7.9 WE rating. I have not fully oc'd the CPU or ram (the 7.7 and 7.8) because everything is working fine now stability wise.
CPU: Intel I5 2500k OC'd to 4.6 for now, may go to 4.8. Love it, at $220 best price/performance ratio around
CPU Cooler: Coolermaster 520, its very good, like I said OC'd to 4.8 it is very cool.
RAM: 16GB Corsair Vengance at 1600mhz, good stuff, MOBO read them 1st time no issue
PSU: Corsair TX750M
MOBO: ASUS P8P67 PRO, awsome board, OC's like a dream, issue is it has a few bugs that are easy to work around, but nasty if you dont. In my case I had to set the power setting so it never hibernates, it will not always wake up from sleep mode, and if it does not, you have to remove the batt on the MOBO and reset BIOS. I would give it 5/5 for performance, and a 2 or 3 for stability because of that. I have read that the Deluxe version of the board does not have these issues it is 40 bucks, more It is more than worth it.
GPU: AMD Radeon 6950 2GB (GFX), great card works just fine, can run anything currently out on ultra, have not tried BF3, may only do that on high. But I got skyrim on Ultra with like 4-5 texture mods and it was good.
MISC: Keyboard: MS Sidewinder X4, b/g/n PCI Wireles card, 22inch LG LED Monitor
Well, I am happy with my 1st build although I did shit my pants after it would not recover from hibernate mode that 1st time. lol....
