Buying a Sabertooth Z97 Mark 1 motherboard just want to know what type of cpu i should get.

I am a huge gamer and i am in the process of upgrading my pc

Current specs

M5A97 evo motherboard
amd 965 ii x4 cpu
nvidea gtx 770 gainward edition gpu
650 watt high current psu
some 4 gb ram "forgot the names lol" decent quality though
4TB hardrives


want to upgrade my motherboard as its running hotter and slowing down... the cause is from the amd cpu "stock cooling fan"



To conclude.. all i want is something that will suit this motherboard, i play everything from wow to battlefield 4 so i want something powerful

thanks :)

Just to clarify, unless you're video editing, an i7 is overkill for gaming. An i5 will do you wonders in gaming. :) 

If you're fine for waiting a little bit and price isn't too much of an issue, I recommend seeing how the i5 4690k fairs. [Could be from anywhere in June to September before it releases.]

If you don't feel like waiting, a i5 4570k will do you just fine in gaming. If you are tired of having hot temperatures, I recommend getting an aftermarket cooler like the Hyper 212 EVO. It's only $30 and keeps your CPU nice n' cool. :) 

Let me know if you have any other questions, concerns, or problems! Hope I helped. ;)

I will be doing video editing, that is the reason i wanted a i7 :) 

I am going on a holiday to europe next month "july" and will be back mid august so im fine with waiting haha..

But ill look into the fan issue too. the Hyper 212.. how hot does it run in idle... i currently with my stock I get 45+ with just origin and steam in the background and when i play any game it gets to around 84 "degrees Celsius" lol and its freezing in australia at the moment... keeps my room warm though lol

ill look into the cooler fan, and i prefer a i7.. and if so what type ?? i heard a devils canyon is coming soon "i dont know what that means lol" 4Ghtz new line cpu from intel. coming around july/august.

If you're fine with waiting then the i7 4790k will be for you. It will allow you to video edit with ease and provide better temperatures than what a i7 4770k would. As for the Hyper 212 EVO, it all depends. I do know it's a heavily popular and renowned cooler for CPUs as it keeps temperatures down. Even though you slap a Hyper 212 EVO on there, it doesn't mean you'll get lower temperatures 100% of the time. Air has to flow through the case to allow for cool air to come in.

Wait till the i7 4790k comes out, buy a Z97 motherboard (I recommend the Z97-A), and buy a Hyper 212 EVO. (Do you know what kind of case you will be getting?)

I put this together for you. I just took into the account that you needed only a new motherboard, CPU, aftermarket cooler, and RAM. [16GB of RAM really helps video editing and other intensive tasks along with multi-tasking.]

Due to a new motherboard and CPU upgrade, you may need a fresh install of windows, so that may set you back another $90. I recommend buying an SSD and putting it on there. [The Samsung 840 Pro 128GB is good.]

Bro.. you didnt have to go through all the trouble ... But cheers :) 
I get all my parts through work so i get a discount, and im still contemplating on upgrading.. i may just build a brand new pc, and keep the old one for just other tasks.. or give it to my brother lol.

ill be doing all this around september/november, so by then there should be more components available.
but i will be upgrading my RAM on the current pc. ive already ordered the Hyper 212 evo, and ill install that on my pc when it arrives.

Much appreciated for the help :)

Not a problem. I enjoy doing it and I enjoy it even more when I help someone find what they're looking for. :)  Cheers as well, mate!

I'd recommend building an entirely new PC. Reusing old parts is a good idea, less time consuming, and more budget friendly, but putting together your own computer with all, completely new parts has a great success factor to it, at least in my opinion.

You should see quite a bit of temperature decreases from the Hyper 212 EVO installation. I don't know if you're knowledgeable in this department, but just to be safe, look up a guide on how to remove thermal paste from your CPU and heatsink.

Before you install your new Hyper 212 EVO, you should remove any extra, old, dried up thermal paste on your CPU. This can damage your CPU if you don't do it right! So pay attention and be careful! Then you'll need to reapply thermal paste, which there is also guides for as well online. [So you will need to buy thermal paste if you don't already have some. I recommend this: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/arctic-silver-thermal-past... ]

Glad I could help. Hope you have all the information you were looking for. Also, don't forget to select your solution if it's been solved! :)  Cheers, mate!
