Overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.14 GHz Overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.98 GHz??? WTF??
Well I used to preach about sticking with my i5 750, Well, I got a great deal on a Z77 board and a i5 3470. You can really get spectacular deals on Ivy bridge processors right now. I almost got the i5 4430 at the same price but the haswell motherboards were more expensive. I chose the Ivy 3470 because it's performance is exactly the same and the Ivy boards were much cheaper. So I was able to get a board that has the features I needed ,Crossfire 4 mem slots, Plenty of fan plugs, Good Heatsinks. I got the board and CPU for $270. Not bad at all. And it performs very well. I love how you can set the multiplier on all four cores. You can take the 3470 to 3.8ghz on all 4 cores on the stock heatsink, And it stays cool. Very impressive compared to the temps on the i5 750.
