  1. okay, if you want to use your parts in another PC - otherwise this makes no sense...

    i would say - take an R5 1600X - which saves you 100 € at that and get yourself one Fractal R5 for your build
    or at least, if not overclocking, and you should not with that 212 - go for 700 wihtout K and H series board

    anything else can also be discussed on tomshardware.de ;)

  2. I would say its not really worth the upgrade cost, would be cheaper to get a 4790k or 4770k (or the non-K's) if you are just gaming.
