I'm mulling over upgrading my i5-750 (Socket 1156) with the i5-4670K (Socket 1150). I'm currently using an Antec H2O 620 and have had no temp issues pushing my i5-750 @ 4GHz for quite a while now.

I found one thread somewhere else claiming the Antec H2O 620 WILL fit on an 1150 socket. Does anyone have any experience with that? I'd rather not spend the money to upgrade the cooler right now on top of the CPU/Motherboard. :na: 

Good news is my Antec TPQ-850 is on Antec's list of Haswell compatible PSUs. :) 

EDIT: I'm also considering the GIGABYTE Z87X-UD3H as my potential motherboard. :p  In case anyone has an opinion there.

If the cooler fits LGA1156, then it will fit LGA1150 or LGA1155, because they are same.

Okay that's what I had thought. So I'm good to go. :) 

Let's hope I get a good i5-4670K that overclocks half way decent. I understand the Ivy Bridge OC better as a rule. But I'm gonna chance it and go with the "newer tech". Either way should be a significant jump from my i5-750.

How did this go? Refurb versions of this are on sale today and I'm considering getting one for my Asus Maximus VI GENE setup.
