My situation is an i5 4670k along with a $39.99 Mobo. http://pcpartpicker.com/part/ecs-motherboard-h87h3m310
This is extremely useful, thank you.
Do you already have the 4670k? if not don't buy that and pair it with a h87 board. Get the non-k version, it would be a waste. Now, on the flip side if your not telling the whole story, if this is a temporary board and you will be moving to a z87 board when funds are available and just cant wait... Then it will be fine. Just dont expect to get the full performance out of the CPU.
Yeah my bad, the temporary board will be around for 6 months then I will be upgrading to sli support mobo, another graphics card, water cooling, and a ssd. Anyways Thanks for the helpful message. I do not have the i5 4670k yet and I'll be stuck with the stock cooler for a while either way. The rest of the story is that I ordered a cheap motherboard to replace and everything else I bought at a Decent price to stay in a budget range
Warlock posted that good article on power... with a cheap motherboard you risk cheaper parts. h87 "should" be made to support the current haswell power requirement but I wouldn't try to OC the GPU or anything like that or change the multiplier on the CPU.
Lol no doubt, I'm not going to oc anything on this motherboard. I am concerned about the gpu I'm getting, msi gtx 760 twin frozr gaming oc edition. It will be stock oc'd, http://pcpartpicker.com/part/msi-video-card-n760tf2gd5oc. Your replies have been refreshing thanks for continuing to answer!
Ya that card should be no problem, most of the power draw is from the PSU anyway for GPUs. Plus its not a power hungry card.
Sweet, you put good news in your comments. Puts me in a good mood. Thanks!
