I'd go with the K version of the cpu, they are unlocked and easily overclock quite a bit on air cooling. My i5 2500k (3.3ghz) runs stable at 4.2ghz with just air cooling.

Do you just overclock in the bios? I've never tried to OC anything before.

Yep in the BIOS on my Gigabyte board all I had to do was change the multiplier to 42 and then slightly up the CPU vCore voltage a bit at a time until I got a stable Prime95 run. I didn't have to up it much and it seems to vary on what you need from CPU to CPU but I am well within the safety margins and it'll have been running OC'd in May for two years.

Isn't it nice to get a computer that isn't half full with bloatware too? icon_biggrin

Certainly is... First thing I do with any store bought PC (usually laptops since I build my own desktops) is wipe it and reinstall a clean copy of Windows...

I have found alot of the newer Logitech speakers sound pretty crappy, I have an older set of X220's (2.1) and they sound really good. They are discontinued of course, but there are some on ebay.

From the iOS 7.03 patch notes

Enhances the Reduce Motion setting to minimize both motion and animation.

I have a RT-N16 as well and its great. Especially so once I loaded a custom Tomato firmware on it.
80  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: Microcenter powerspec PC? on: September 25, 2013, 11:06:22 PM
That's a good price for it and it will run just about any game well. My system is comparably spec'd (i5 2500k, ssd, 8gb ram, 660ti) and it runs great.

Edit: The cpu in the one your looking at ends with a K which means its multiplier is unlocked and with a good HSF you should be able to overclock it pretty easily if the ASRock mobo has decent overclocking controls in the BIOS. I have my 2500K running at 4.2ghz.
