This is my first build and it turned out nicely.
What is this build for? Gaming, editing, graphic design work? just wondering because a lot of the money was invested in that 4790k but the motherboard is not a z97 board allowing for overclocking
I use it for business (MS Office) and a light gaming. As this was my first build, I am a bit of a noob on the benefits of an z97 vs h97. I am sure there are big but was not aware of it at the time. Maybe you can help me out here?
I can still return the MB if I wanted. I was told that I could overclock the CPU with this MB. I browsed the BIOS and saw options to do so but have kept it on default. I liked the idea of overclocking if needed in the future.
Thanks for the comment.
Did some HW. I see the main benefit for the z97 is the overclocking. I was at the register with everything in hand and found that the 4790k was only $30 more because of a rebate than the 4790. That is the reason I got it. Now I see that I can't get the most out of that decision due to the h97 MB.
Cool case, personally I like the Lian PC-08
