I wanted to buy a new motherboard for a core i5 2500k cpu and i wanted to make it cheap. so I find some but the power phases were different and since cpu is k version so i thought maybe that cause problems.
my question is 1)If I make multiplier higher It will consume more power? ( Sorry if it sound idiotic )
2) Will this limit my cpu overclocking ( only changing multiplier ) ?
I was looking at motherboards like GA-P67A-D3 with 4 power phases.
