    Some one wrote that if you use the software bundle that comes with the mb (extreme 4) it will install zynga games, if you uninstall it, it will install next time it auto updates

    Any experince with that?

    How do i know if i need a socket 1155 gen 1 to update bios?

    How important is minimum 10 phase power and 8 pin atx for the cpu?

    I would go for 4.0 ghz if it's possible

    my price limit in £ is 95 (i want to stay under 100£ , not just 99£)

    I am also considering this http://www.amazon.co_uk/dp/B007R21KBC/?tag=tec053-21

    Even when the price is 116£ with out delivery on amazon it's 92£ in demark with delivery, but it's only got 4 pin atx for the cpu and dosn't it need another heatsink for the.... i think it's the mosfeet, next to the 4 pin atx and the blue heatsink if i am gonna oc or does it matter since i can't go past 4.0 ghz since it's not a k cpu (that shouldn't be a problem since it's already fast at stock speed)

    Is it only on z68 mb that you might need a sandy bridge cpu (which i don't have) to update bios so you could use a ivy bridge cpu?
