Hi, this may sound stupid, but i was wondering about the fact my motherboard is 140W and my cpu is 125W, it will work, i am just wondering how far it will overclock and if it will even restrict it, im looking for 4ghz on a hyper 212 evo.
^correct. the ASUS board is rated for 140W and its power delivery supports up to140W CPUs(and probably higher when overclocking). You have a lower wattage CPU so no issue. You can also always check the board CPU support list.
