Seems fair to me. I never work with this memory but heard many good review on it. Patriot are a pretty good brand in general.

The stock i5 cooler is pathetic at best, works good enough for stock cooling. I was able to get 3.33ghz overclock out of my chip on stock cooling within acceptable temp ranges.

What does people never understand...stock cooler IS made to run stock not for OC. If you want the CPU to run at stock speed the intel cooler is perfect. If you want to OC then get a better cooler.

well nvm about removing it. i removed and cleaned it removing all the sticker on top of the graphic card cover, and unscrewed screws. but my graphic card cover got this nasty residue of stickers and it won't come off... looks really bad. i will post some photo about it later for those who are wondering how to take it off.

Got my gift of i5 parts xmas morning! I must say the shiny blue boxes looked pretty under the xmas tree lights.

ASUS P7P55D EVO
Intel Core i5-750
(4 x 2GB) G.SKILL DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)

Beginning to rebuild my sig rig in t-minus 1 hour. Just got to do some backing up first. I also pre-bought the HSF clip adapter to re-use my CNPS9700 with the socket 1156 board. It's been a great oc fan over the years.
