Excellent budget phones if you arent a super picky audiohile. super comfortable too I'd suggest buying the replacement earpads on amazon as well

Yes I RMA'd the first one because it started making noise, and the replacement one developed the same problem. Though i never had any reliability issues, it always delivered its power. The only thing i wish it had was an eco mode.

Ah okay makes sense. Yeah I'm too much of a wuss to mess around OCing a standard i5 so I just picked up the 6600k. Hope it works well for ya!

what are the benefits of a z170 mobo with a non-k cpu?

the goal was to downgrade because i dont game as much these days. i sold the 3570k/290 rig and had money left over after putting together this one. no point keeping the 290 either b/c it would be bottle necked by the cpu.

How so? I'm no audiophile and they supposedly are one of the best price/quality for budget phones. Could have saved $10 purchasing through Monoprice but hey no biggie.

No. The board I purchased through Amazon was the 3.1 revision and came with BIOS support for Kaveri.

http://www.hisdigital.com/us/product2-774.shtml It's a 270x... just the earlier model that used the old IceQ blower (which I always loved the look of). It'd be awesome if it was a 7950, that'd be a step up especially if I got it for the same price.

Played Planetside 2 @2560x1600 came mostly down to the gpu but it was performing pretty smoothly at medium/high settings. Wasn't as much a step down as I expected coming from an r9 290. Overall might benefit from a cpu OC but I don't game often enough to do that atm.
