I5 4670 upgrade?


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I've been running an I5 4670 OC to 4.2 Mh for a couple of years now.

 

I'm just wondering if it is worth upgrading to an I7 and if so what would be a good choice that I can OC.

 

Any guidance much appreciated.

ps. Also thinking that I might get more benefit from updating my Vid Card from a 970 to ? instead. After my posting I see that my MB is running LGA 1150 and that is pretty old by today's standards which means a new MB and CPU to gain ? at this time. I'm retired and have to get the most bang for the buck and be ready for the FA-18C. :)

i5 4670K or i7 4770K are good overclocking choices for the socket (LGA1150) you're running

My specs noted below. Been flying at O/C to 4.2ghz, and using a 1080 for the VR. So far so good. Yep, I know I'm getting longer in the tooth. I plan to upgrade the rig in about a year or so, when the next gen VR requirements become clear.
