Hi all I'm looking to upgrade from my trusty Q6600 setup soon to ivy bridge. I've done my research and these look to be very good performance for their price. Intel Core i5 3570K - £180 Asus MAXIMUS V GENE Z77 - £153 Corsair Vengeance 16GB (4x4GB) DDR3 1600Mhz CL9 1.5V - £76 Total - £409 Main uses for PC are Gaming, Blu-Ray re-encoding (rip from disc, shrink and store), and running 5-10 VM's at once for training purposes (hence need for 16GB RAM). Just wanted to run it by you guys for your opinion and I also need to decide on a CPU cooler, not really sure what to go for. The "Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro rev 2" seems very popular? Most important thing will be that it will fit on the V GENE with all 4 RAM slots fitted, after that, as long as its reasonably quiet I'm not too fussed (not sure if I will overclock immediately, probably wont be able to resist though!). Thanks!
