I have a FX6100 that is power hungry. I can run it at 4.7Ghz 24/7, but I want an upgrade.

Will an used i5 2500K (OCed to 5Ghz) be worth my time?

How about an used FX8150?


Any input is appreciated thumb.gif

Can't find any used FX-8320's?

i5-2500k is probably a decent upgrade, I wouldnt waste my time with anything less than an FX-83xx tho.

FX8150 is a useless upgrade, even if all you do is rendering.
You have your fx6100 at 4.7 ghz, its nearly as fast as the stock 2500K.

The i5 3570K is a better choice but you will have to replace your board.
Your best bet is to go for an FX8350 which is already supported by your gigabyte board.

Thanks guys. I might grab a 8320 since I already have 2 good for OCing mobos, unless I get a cheap i5 or i7 combo here.
