Hi Everyone,

So when I built this rig overclocking with non K series CPUs wasn't possible, so I cheaped out and grabbed the GA-H170M-D3H.

Now with the older bios overclocking is possible on the Z chipset and secondly I can't run my ram at its rated speed.

Would the performance difference warrant getting a different motherboard? After all is said and done it would of cost me around $100 to replace the motherboard and get a cooler

Realistically, am I going to gain $100 worth of performance out of this upgrade?

I currently have a i5-6400 running at 2.7ghz and my ram is running at one of the lower JEDEC specs.
