Personal gaming PC that I would be upgrading every now and then. Started with a AMD Athlon x4 860k and a Nvidia 750 Ti.
Have you tried overclocking?
Yea, I got the CPU up to 4.4GHz. It does make a difference, but you can still tell CPU bottlenecks.
I have the same CPU and GPU and I don't notice too much bottlenecking. Even when OC it still runs everything fine
Some of the games I was playing I would change the graphics settings from high to ultra with no performance hit, until multiple enemies started to spawn.
the hyper 212 evo fits this motherboard without any problems?
Yea its just the motherboard is a micro ATX board, so it looks big on it
