Z series is necessary for you to overclock. All series will allow the CPU to automatically boost.
Just updated with new pics.
Thank you for your appreciation.
We are now using 4 x 4 and don't have any stability issues. He does not need more than 8GB RAM, but we got such a deal on the corsair RAM that we bought it and put it in. If it causes issues, I'll remove the Team. They are the same CAS latency.
We are slowly upgrading this machine. We may overclock it in a couple years, but he doesn't need to right now. I actually told him to get h97 and a 4460 to save money, but he wanted the 4690k.
He is very happy with the PC and now sees how building our own computer is much better than buying a prebuilt.
Next time I come home and clean the dust out of it (there's not normally much), I'll take pictures of it with the new PSU (and better cable management) and RAM.
First pic is of the Dell that replaced the HP. (Thought it'd be interesting to compare a BTX machine to ATX)
The other pics are (left to right) the motherboard fully assembled, the mobo in the case, the mobo connected to stuff in the case, the front of the case while it's on.
I don't have pictures of it with the new PSU and better cable management. These pictures had the original PSU, whose cables were so short the 24 pin cable barely stretched to the slot on the mobo.
By the way, it's my first build.
I may build a computer for myself when Kaby Lake comes out.
Any suggestions are welcome.
