oveerclocking an h97 PC mate (MSI)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

so I have a question, I know typically the H series motherboards were incapable of overclocking but with a bios update it now shows an OC feature? I am considering upgrading my i5 4460 to an i7 4790k (instead of buying a new mb and Ryzen cpu and RAM even though I really want to but i'm on a budget). Anyway can anyone confirm if this board is now capable of overclocking and is the 4790k worth it even if i can't overclock? I've seen some videos comparing it to a R5 2600 and it looks very similar in terms of gaming performance. 

 

thanks all!

You should not upgrade yet, and you should safe for ryzen, since the 4th generation will be coming prices will drop. But ryzen 4th is pretty far away for now that we know.
