The above processprs and motherboard is a good one for home pc system. My pc remains on 24hr and my performance is not affected. Tghe cooler on the board is very effective. One day after running my pc i turned off my pc and touch my motherboard and processor it was cool as if was never turned on.
The problem with the board is during start up will detecting bios and memory, it takes too long well thats because there are many ddr2 memory card, graphic card and so on.
A good deal i think
