    Thank you very much! You 're right about socket i write it wrong. Do you think will be good enough for a small overclock to 4670k? I know that haswell are a bit more hotter than previous generations ivy - sandy.What is your opinion?
  3. it will get u quite a decent OC
  4. If it handled your i7 860, it will handle an i5 4670k just fine. I would venture to say an i5 Haswell would run cooler than an i7 Lynnfield. BTW, what are you doing with that old i7 anyway?

    A v8 is a great cooler and would give a 4.3+ o.c
    Just apply mx4 to it

    And there is no size difference in the sockets 1156,1155,1150
    So it would fit with ease
