Im building a pc in the EVGA hardon and would like to save as much power as possible. So would a i5 4570s or an underclocked 4670k at 3-3.25 ghz bottleneck a 780ti

More about : 4570s underclocked 4670k bottleneck 780ti

anything you under clock is going to run slower making the whole system run slower. the amount of "energy" you are trying to save will be unmeasurable.

having said that ------- when I plan on over clocking I always find the least amount of power that my processor will run at stock speeds without fault. what it saves in energy.............. never looked. don't think it would be much.

No not at all. The 4570s would be a good choice, but if the regular 4570 is cheaper, and I believe it is, just go with that. The difference in power would not be that noticeable.

A 4570s will not bottleneck a 780ti neither will a underclocked 4670k and since you need to save power i would go with a 4570s. If you were to get a 4670t it will bottleneck.

I would do some serious research to make sure that that 500w psu has enough amps to support a GTX780ti because it doesn't really have enough watts. Is that why you are so concerned with keeping the wattage as low as possible? Just get a more powerful psu and enjoy with no worries.

I don't think a 4670t would bottleneck a GTX780ti. @ 3.3ghz it will still be more powerful per core than a FX9590

It would basically perform about the same as an i5 4440, and I know for a fact that a 4440 will not bottleneck any single video card.

in that "case" (haha pun) il get the i7, i think ill be able to use the ph tc cooler thou, that way i can remove the top fan and only use the bottom one so you can only see the black heatsink.
thankyou everyone for the help

and this guy has one
he just has the psu under a bit of strain, there should be 110-90 wats of clearance on any 500w psu, he has only about 80
One more thing the 780ti requires 42 amps on a +12v rail but the psu only has 40. to prevent problems my gpu cant go over 1.05 ghz and I need 110+wats of headroom to avoid problems.

You are pushing your luck, and I do not recommend it. You know ahead of time that the GTX780 ti requires a 600w minimum psu with 42 amps and you know that that psu only has 500w and 40amps.

It's a very bad idea to buy an underpowered PSU for your build , you are putting your other components at risk.
