@op, wait for the new platform with ddr4.

upgrading to a 4770K will be a waste of money.

I'm waiting on the new platform with the DDR4 support. No real plans to do anything to my system till 2014-2015

I have a Asus Maximus Gene z micro ATX I think... About 2-3 years with a i7 2600k. I do not game but somehow I cannot overlock more than 3.75ghz.. I do not have liquid cool or so but not sure if it is because it us a micro ATX and therefore cannot over clock as well. I have got all the good ddr3 memory 16gb and a good air cooler. Water could not fit in to the Lian Li mini ITX case. what is a good cheap or reasonable ?

An i7-2600K is a very good chip nowadays, I myself own it and it's running @ 4.8GHz. I would NEVER get an i7-4770k having this chip. Save your money for something else, if you're into gaming get a GTX 880 once it's released. If you can't OC past 4.5GHz, then it must be your motherboard, are you changing the voltages? does your motherboard auto-set the voltages? Questions, questions...

Make sure everything is correct. Do you KNOW your motherboard? If you found out that you can OC your i7 with your motherboard, then research the reason that can't. You can also look for the overclock settings. One word: RESEARCH

If it came that you can't OC it with your motherboard, get a new one?
