Hey everyone biggrin.gif

I'm going to buy a new rig this summer and I need your help to find out which CPU and motherboard would be better for my rig.

I'm thinking to get the either the Asus VII Ranger or the MSI z87 g45 gaming. drool.gif

Firstly, what are the differences between the z87 and the z97? I know z97 motherboard can support faster SSD due to m.2, but is there other differences in the vrm cooling, the pci-e ports or anything else?

Will I see a noticeable difference when overclocking the I5 4670-k or the I5 4690-k and playing games? Is there any benchmark or anything comparing those two CPU when overclocked out there yet?

Which one would you recommend me? (Argue please, I want to learn.)

Lastly, does anyone knows when the Ranger will be released and what will be its cost?

Here what my rig will look like yet if it can help. rolleyes.gif

What do you guys think about it?

Have a good day and thanks for helping me out. smile.gif

Edit: made a poll for the ones that are too lazy to answer. thumb.gif

I would say the 4690k, isn't that the haswell refresh CPU? I've heard that the z87 and z97 are 99% identical. Almost all the settings will be pretty much the same. I assume they made the z97 chip set just for the haswell refresh CPUs.

The performance difference would be bearly noticeable.

Just make sure you read your new mobo if you decide to go for M2 for some reason. Some are only PCIe while others may use SATA. You wouldn't want to grab an SSD that's not compatible and end up with a headache.

AFAIK there's no reason to look forward them anyway, they won't be faster anywhere where it matters considering SATA3 isn't saturated except in the Sequential speeds which don't matter to anyone.

Is there even a 4690K in existence? I keep seeing people write about it but I can't find it in any stores.

I do however see a 4690 (I don't see a K edition).

Please link me to a listing for a 4690K if I'm wrong.

Yes, it is the haswell refresh. Okay so the motherboard is pretty much the same, but what about the the new I5 4690-k? When overclocking them at their optimal capacity, will I notice a difference?

Anyways, my SSD will be the Samsung 840 EVO. What about sata express?

Same for me. That's I made this thread. I thought that maybe someone in OCN could have some info about it.

I just learned from a thread I started that the 4690K is part of the Devli's Canyon Intel processors that will be released sometime in June.

Yep june 2 i think, but then, why are the I5 4690 and I7 4790 already available? They aren't part of Devil's Canyon? Anyways thanks for the info and could link the thread pls?

Well I thought
Haswell != Haswell Refresh (released already) == Devil's Canyon (released in June)

Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.
