It's probably a competitor, but I'd personally opt for an i5 at least. i3 only has 2 real cores, rather get 4 real cores! Hyperthreading isn't nearly as good as more real cores.

I'd still not be surprised if an overclocked skylake i3 would be even with an overclocked FX 6300 in most (well multithreaded) gaming, and beating it handly on the single threaded side.

Your BIOS has the option to DISABLE thermal throtling. You will not see FPS drops due to the CPU reaching 70*C.

It seems that some ASUS boards do not feature this, unlike the ASRock ones, where almost all i have seen have this feature.

4.5+GHZ is up there for a air cooler.
I'd be happy with 4.5Ghz on air

The board just fails instead.

Theres no point in increaceing the freedom of max tempertures. If it gets really hot giving more voltage won't possibly increace your oc frredom any further
As at higher tempertures theres more leakage. and more leakage equates to less overclock.

So really, a higher stable overclock can be achived with just lower tempetures.
For exmaple going liquid nitrogen. guys may be hitting the 4.6GHZ stable on stock voltages due to very low cpu temps making the cpu has less leakage

Going past 70C will mean that the cpu will have a shorter life span and getting even hotter will either kill your motherboard or cpu

Just like how chrisjames61 said. your going to be putting the motherboard at risk if you disable throttling and possibly decide to get past 80C in either core or socket temps

4.68 here on air. Prime95 running for more than a few minutes is a waste if you want the best overclock. Your most demanding game or application is what you should be using as the final test for max overclock. Use prime95 to check for stability/errors for new settings but don't run it for more than a few minutes. 1-2 minutes is good enough. Then load your game and see if it crashes or not.

That's a great way to corrupt your OS and files. God speed.

Seriously, I'm ok with ditching prime95 but at the very least do 8hours of Realbench if you don't want to randomly corrupt that paper you've spent 3 days on writing.
