hi everyone 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.
thanks in advance

Hi and welcome to Tom's forum.
1- Yeah, an overclocked CPU use more power. 2- No, your overclock is limited by the CPU's voltage and heat.
Welcome To Toms =)
Just one thing of advice when it comes to motherboards try and invest as much money as possible into your board always makes the difference, i find its always best.
