Re: New pc build with i7 3770K

Thanks everyone for the great information so far.

As i read more i guess with the i7 3770K turbo boost that it may not be worthwhile for me to OC. Since it automatically boosts itself when needed I probably am only getting small incremental performance increase running the CPU at 4.2 GHz all the time. I understand that Turbo Boost can attain 3.9 GHz when called upon.

I guess I really should look for a mid-level mobo that runs well at stock speeds and doesn't have features i don't need like wireless connectivity and multiple GPU support. My only worry is that such a board may be of poor quality i.e. inferior solder connection using cheaper alloys
