I've thought about bumping up my clock and giving it a go and seeing how it performs then. Idles at around 31 degrees now and under load around 40 degrees. I'll check out the two options and see what direction I could move in. Money isn't really an issue, I just don't want to waste it when I could get great performance at a cheaper price. So, in saying that, I'm open to suggestion for the optimal cpu that would be compatible with the rest of my build.
