i5 3570k vs. 4670k - Page 2

Personally, I never buy used CPU's as well. They are like lame horses waiting for a bullet to put them out of their misery. You won't believe the abuse most ppl throw at them, and with the degradation due to electromigration phenomenon well documented, there is absolutely no reason to buy one.

This depends on how frequently you upgrade, and what your budget is. No issues with buying used CPUs either as long as they haven't been dropped or OCd hard. My Pentium 3 and AMD K-something still work decades later

Sounds like I should go with the haswell, prices are within a few bucks of each other. I should be able to get to my target overclock with the Haswell? I am looking to stay on air, probably the Noctua ND-h14.

Can anyone advise me on a motherboard under $160 that would support SLI and also have good features for overclocking?

Once again, thank you

Buck

Most of the boards will work well and be able to achieve whatever volts you want. Way more than most casual overclockers use. The one-step-up-from-bottom-z87 boards like z87x-d3h (which are really solid) are good choices. Most of the differences is just stuff like onboard audio, though basically all of the board manufacturers handle voltages differently..

Haswell is a bit more complex to OC nearer limits, that doesn't mean that it OC's less though.

Lol I'm the opposite. How many cpu's have you rma'd? Kow anyone that has? I have RMA'd every component but a cpu. They are very tough. degredation happens sure. Another good thing about buying them used is you know (most the time) what clocks it can do before hand.
