Should I replace my mobo or CPU as well? - Page 5

I'm deliberately avoiding the 8320 and 8350 because of their very high power draws when OCed.

The question is really whether there are any such mobos under £110, if something costs more then I may as well pay the little bit extra to get the Sabertooth. If there's something cheaper that'll manage the same results (or ~150MHz less) then that's probably better value for money.
Just so you know a 8320/50 is not a 8120/50. It pulls just as much power @ 5GHz as a 1100T at 4.2GHz

Do you realize that 8320/50 is around 280 watts. 8120/50 is well over 300 watts.

Ugh... can a 212 EVO dissipate that much energy? I suspect not... hence why I would get the 6-core piledriver, can OC as far (hopefully) but without all the heat issues.

The Power Draw of the CPU is not the TDP of the cpu. Alot of ppl thinks it is the same, but it is not.
EXAMPLE
8320/50 @ 5ghz draw around 280 watts of power, but the TDP is around 220 watts.

Hyper 212 EVO dissipate 180W TDP, So it will handle a FX-6300 around 4.5-4.8ghz.

EDIT
Here is a chart of power draws.

If I could get a 6300 to 4.6GHz on my cooler, what could I expect from an 8320? I'm thinking 33% more cores would be more useful than, say 10% per core.

Edit: or 8350, that looks to have better perf/watt.

If you are lucky around 4.3ghz.

Something to sleep on I suppose. Thanks for all your help, I've finally picked a mobo (M5A99FX Pro, since it's only a few pounds more than the evo).

And @jason387 turns out putting my GPU to stock means I can now game for hours on end without BSOD. Thanks!
