Had to change build because of a deal... some questions. Tags: Build CPUs Systems Product Last response: January 31, 2013 11:36 PM in Systems Share eyeage January 31, 2013 11:20:00 PM This was my intention, but I got a pretty good deal on this CPU and this mobo.. Together, they cost me $280 after tax, so I figured why not.... That said I have a couple questions. Is it unreasonable to for me to use the rest of the previous build, or do I need to upgrade some of those parts in order to keep up the pace with the new pieces?

Stock for stock, the 3570k isn't even noticeably better than the 3470. If you overclock it will be, but nothing crazy different. The rest of the parts will work perfectly. m 0 l johnsonjohnson a b à CPUs January 31, 2013 11:25:35 PM Hi. No it's not unreasonable to use the rest of your previous build though you may add an aftermarket cooler for overclocking. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !

Thanks for the go ahead on the rest of the stuff. This site has been monumental in my decision to attempt to build. Lot of good people and good information. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
