Use it for gaming (obviously) and for 3d work, mostly centered around game design. Got a lot of problems with my mobo the biggest one being that it keeps shutting off some amount of usb 3.0 ports whenever something is disconnected and then reconnected. Not sure if this is a cpu or mobo problem, but in the bios I get some problems when trying to increase bclk frequency. The max i can increase it to before it stops POSTing is 103 mhz. That said i have no problems OC my cpu with the multiplier. Pushed it to 43, kept bclk at 100 mhz and now it runs at 4.3 ghz. I get pretty stable temps on Win 10 (not so much on win 7 which i had installed before). Idle temps tend to be 35 to 40 C. High load temps are around 60 to 70 C. Prime95 test got it to 75 to 80 C. Temps are at OC speed. Overall im pretty happy with this build. However I will try to upgrade to a 6 core processor like the 4930k in the future.
