Core i5 compatibility . Tags: CPUs Core Compatibility MSI Intel i5 Last response: February 20, 2013 12:29 PM in CPUs Share Muks2386 February 20, 2013 12:26:04 PM Hey guys . Just wanna know . I'm upgrading . Will a Core i5 3470 work well with a MSI B75MA-P45 motherboard ? Previously , I was deciding on an i3-3220 with a MSI Z77MA-G45 , but I shorten the budget of the mobo to let in room for the CPU . Is it worth it ?

The i5 would be a better choice over an i3. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Read discussions in other CPUs categories AMD Intel Intel i5 Intel i7 Phenom Cooling Performance !
