But he was going for the old i3 which was not so great. The new ones look to be very impressive so if I were buying a new pc I would not touch a skt 1156 mobo. The new 1155 mobos are where you should be looking.

i'm not into modded PCs, and those with the LED lights and all, don't see the reason behind it...

KB 3D mark 11 isn't so cpu intensive so my gpu doesn't stand a chance against a gtx 580! I scored X1385 so I'm quite a way off... And I just achieved 4635mhz on my cpu:)
