Should I upgraded? LGA1155 to an LGA1151 for my 1440p 144Hz monitor - Page 2

Thank you all guys. I guess that pretty much convinces me. I'll stay with my current mobo and try to do some manual OC on the CPU and RAM. If I happen to find a new or like new 3770K anytime for a decent price, I'll probably just go ahead and pick it up.

Thumbs UP to all of you!

Noticed today while playing Rise of the Tomb Raider that my CPU was maxed at 100% most of the time, so I'm definitely going to try to OC the CPU manually. Hopefully if there is a bottleneck there, I can get fix it.

And yea, I don't see much by you wrt getting a (used) 3770k and Ebay prices are REALLY high (like new 4790k prices at MC). 

I finally found a decent deal on a used i7 3370k, so I'll be doing a major overhaul of my system soon. I also bought a new case and a closed loop CPU watercooler, so I can really try to have some fun overclocking. Hopefully the used CPU will be in good shape.

Great to hear, I would assume that the chip should be fine, it's pretty hard to kill a cpu. I have had nothing but great experiences buying used cpus. Last 10+ chips I've had were used and all worked wonderfully.

Got my CPU in the mail today. Do you have a recommended way to check to make sure the chip is good? I want to check the CPU at stock voltages and settings before I do any overclocking. I've read that running Prime95 on Small FFTs and Blend test, each for about 4 hours is a good way to check it.
