Upgrading CPU

 Share

Hi everyone,

I want to upgrade my old G3258 pentium cpu, that I overclocke, to a new CPU.

My motherboards socket is a LGA1150.

I was thinking of an I5 4690K or an i7 4790k.

Maybe I should upgrade my motherboard in whole? My budget is around 400 euros

I have an Z97 PC-MATE ATX LGA1150 Motherboard, with an GTX 960 Strix OC edition 2gb

I would say 4770k or 4790k as they are still great these days, you can even go up with a 1080 ti when overclocked, so no bottlenecks later

The i5 4670K/4690K will complement your GPU nicely, but if you want to go for maximum longevity for your system, I would try to get a 4770K or 4790K. Your motherboard is fine. I would focus more on your CPU cooler. What do you have right now?

4790k would be the best choice imo. 

If you dont want to overclock, then try get a xeon from that era (1231 v3 if i remember correctly), it will be 50$ less.

i7 if you game frequently.

Average to Most Games use MORE than 4 threads now and are tuned for more threads as time goes on... BF5 right now is 6/12 thread aware.

Give the game a great GPU, watch the 4core max out.

 

Get 8 Threads to prepare for better GPU's,.... (before switching platforms altogether)

Maximums - Asus Z97-K /w i5 4690 Bclk @106.9Mhz * x39 = 4.17Ghz, 8GB of 2600Mhz DDR3,.. Gigabyte GTX970 G1-Gaming @ 1550Mhz

You don't need a HUGE cooler for 95w CPU's for the most part these days...
It's when you push clocks and voltage, that you'd really need something greater than a 12mm AIO or Half Decent Small Aircooler.

 

I've got my 4790K 4c8t 4.7Ghz at 1.3v (also 4.5Ghz at 1.258v) on a single 120mm AIO with PushPull and top out at 81*c with AVX workloads, but average low-mid70's when 100%'ing without AVX.

Gaming also has me in the 50-60*c mark.

 

As long as "case" airflow is decent,.. "Good" aircoolers can do their job properly, as do crappy single 120mm AIO's like mine :)

Maximums - Asus Z97-K /w i5 4690 Bclk @106.9Mhz * x39 = 4.17Ghz, 8GB of 2600Mhz DDR3,.. Gigabyte GTX970 G1-Gaming @ 1550Mhz
