I use this for heavy virtualization like +4 virtual machines.

everything works as expected but, the MSI motherboard didn't post at all, and did my search with google I found a lot of people complaining about it, then, of course, returned it and bought a Gigabyte UD5 motherboard, it just works as expected.

important to mention here, the prices, it's as it's in my country and I paid that for warranty.

Part Reviews


What can I say, absolutely amazing. especially when overclocked.

@4.5GHz I got Cinebench R15 .. 985 Geekbench .. Single-core 4134 .. Multi-core 16883 http://browser.primatelabs.com/geekbench3/5720868

CPU Cooler

I don't expect that cooling and less noise together.

@4.5GHz with prime95 taking putting a full stress on the i7 the temperature about 80C and not more than 82C, because I put the machine under my desk I just did hear it :), when I get down to hear it, nothing, nothing noisy.


Well, A bad one. at least for me, it just didn't post which bothered me a lot. because I paid for it. it must work. I returned it and bought a Gigabyte UD5, it's a lot better, especially with I/O ports.

two stars for that people said its a good one :)


Nothing to complain about.


well deserved 5 stars, rated at 514MB/s reading and 490MB/s writing.


Nothing to complain about.

Wireless Network Adapter

it's not that speedy one but as my public link is about 10Mbps its good for me.

in my local network, it's about 12-15Mbps.

and hey if you're planning to use it on Linux, it doesn't work out of the box.


well, it's more than good for me but. if you're a designer, you would get smaller one or go up with resolution. like 1440p or 4k.

Holy cow. What a build!! 1 question. How is the Cable Management in this case? Hehe "Case" But seriously i am thinking of buying this case for my PC build and want really good cable management because i will have a window. As you can tell because this case has a window. And i want it to look good. Thanks!!!
