  3. yes you can still overclock with that board with the clock you mention unless you want to spend extra bucks on that board you chose.

    yeah. i want the board that I mentioned....Is there any amd that would do the same thing as mine but is less cheaper?
  5. theres the amd 8350 at 4ghz stock. but slightly less performance than the i5 4670k. and also the 4670k will clock better.
