which build to choose

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have three builds I have planned out but don't know which one to chose. The three are the first pic, the second pic, and the third and fourth pick.


if I went with the all out water cooling I would like to take it to 4.8 Ghz and if I go with the other i3 build I would like 4.5 Ghz. If I go with the i5 build I want at least 4.0 Ghz

I will use this for gaming and benching so which one to chose

Lots of new games take advantage of a quad core, so I would personally go with the i5. But if you decide to go for the i3, which is still an excellent chip, look on the marketplace for some proven OC chips. I think there is one that will go to 4.8Ghz on air, imagine what water would do for that chip

- If it was for me, I'd gladly choose the i5 path.
