Also, I don't really overclock much. More about : upgrading core duo e8200 InvalidError a c 147 à CPUs May 6, 2012 6:10:23 PM You would need to define how much is "not much" for you. If that means something like 10%, IB would be just as good with likely lower power. I personally wouldn't bother paying the ~$50 premium for a K-chip (i5-3570K vs i5-3470) unless I planned to try my luck with a significant overclock, say 20% and up. m 0 l eddieroolz a b à CPUs May 6, 2012 6:32:08 PM For those upgrading from pre-SB an IVB chip would be the good choice. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
