i5 or i7 - Page 14

post #131 of 206
Thread Starter 
No I have not decided on another cpu, i will be going for the i7 4770k since the price is so close to the non unlocked cpu then hell why not and try out an overclocking situation in future smile.gif Still just on the last phase of my order, which mainboard to choose, either buying a cheap 170$ ish board or just going to go all out and buy a $300 board and hope not to have to upgrade it for a very long time

If you're going to overclock I'd spend a little extra on a good board. Just my opinion I would feel a lot better with a good strong board for overclocking, if not save some money you wont see much difference if not any.

Keep in mind that passed the 4.4ghz mark the vcore makes a big role,mostly the people needs to delid passed the 4.4ghz.unless you want a custom water cooling loop to supply the lack of good cooling between the IHS and the die

Average is about 4.5@1.3v, on air this means avg temps still in the 60's, peaking low 70's with HT off (i5, silver arrow)

I recommend the ASUS Sabertooth Z87 or the ASUS Z87 Pro. Both are great boards and very reliable and cost efficient.

The Sabertooth here is over the $300 mark while the asrock z87 oc forumla is just under that mark

The benchmark section in this review hopefully might be of some help deciding on a Mobo http://www.techradar.com/reviews/pc-mac/pc-components/motherboards/asus-z87-sabertooth-1185376/review

Obviously a top flow cooler like your NH-C12P SE14 will utilise the Thermal Armour ducting on a Sabertooth Mobo better than a standard cross flow cooler.
