Hi, well finally I upgraded my desktop pc (amd athlon xp 1600, 768mb,fx 5200, 80gb ide) with :

-i5 3570k
-p8z77-m
-2x2gb kvr1333d3s8n9
-coolmaster elite 460w

I am getting tomorrow a 250 gb hdd.


Future (in 2 months) upgrades:

-2x4gb ???? 2133 mhz
-120 gb ssd


For now I just boot uefi, here are some pics:

Why the iGPU is clocked to 350Mhz if intel specs say that is 650MHz?

    That's the power safe automatic. 650MHz is not needed for the bios display.
  2. yea they underclock the gpu to save power. When you play a game or something it will go back to normal speeds. Also if you get a 3570k you better be buying a dedicated gpu or you will be wasting your money
