What is the Fastest Intel Core i5 Non-K Processor?

I am going to build a computer, but I do not plan to overclock. I was told that if I am not going to overclock, then I should not get an Intel Core i5 K processor for my computer, instead get a non-K processor.

Also, if I am going to buy an Intel Core i5 non-K processor, should I get a motherboard with an H77 or H87 chipset instead of a motherboard with a Z77 or Z87 chipset? If so, then what motherboard would you recommend?

Thank you in advance!

  1. Best answer
    For the current (fourth gen/Haswell), an i5-4670 is tops.

    You can save money with a H87 board to pair it with, for example:

  2. Yep, the i5-4670 is the fastest.

    Then, just get any reliable (something)87 motherboard. Substitute the (something) with any of the letters.
  3. For the money, you cannot go wrong with an i5 4570 and a B85 pro4.
