Frys has the 550 closeout for $90. the i3 has no overclocking limits like some 1155 cpus. It only works with 1156 motherboards and has hyperthreading support, which the g850 doesn't. I overclocked my I-3 530 to 3.65 easily. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources : ForumGigabyte or Asus for X58 chipset.
