I meant more like SLI PLUS (was $99 on Newegg a day or two ago along with Extreme4 at $125) and upwards. There's no point to buying a top tier board and a i5-8400, since it will be limited to 3.8GHz all core anyway. I didn't mean to buy the boards that hit 90°C on stock with AVX.Originally Posted by ehume
Even if we are going to use the computer in intensive spurts? At high OC's?
I for one don't care about features. I'm only concerned with intense use spurts. Maybe I'll test the noise of heatsinks and while testing their cooling use a fan to keep the VRM's cool.
