I have a Antec h620 AIO. I also have i5 2500k. 16gb @ 2133mhz 4x4gb.

I need to know if I should upgrade to a i7 3930k and a new Motherboard.

or get a new watercooling kit.



The reason I torn is because I currently run a minecraft server with SEUS mod on my computer too I do play on the same machine running the server. I do also play Feed The Beast and run a server on my computer.
I convert HD files. I stream the games I play (crysis 3 BF3 minecraft and feed the beast)

I also do ethical hacking on a lab test computer. I mostly focus on my router and wpa along side windows 7 hacks. I'm do this for educational purposes along side my college IT course.

So as you can see I need computational power but also cooling. The question is what order do I go about it?

What ever the first choice is the i7 3930k will never be overclock there would be no need and I don't want to kill a $500 dollar CPU.


Is the i7 3930k good enough to handle these jobs? Also is my kit good enough to handle both CPU's?

Please help me. I have been under alot of stress with my classes and my mother is very sick and could be passing in a week or so. So I have not been thinking clearly.

I know the kit is decent and the CPU is strong and fast.

Just need to know is it worth getting and where should I start.

Please respond and help me find my bearings and put my stressed out mind some what at ease.
