Last one . That board should get you to 4.2 without issue, but I can't guarantee 4.5 . I'm in no shape to pick out one to hit 4.5 in the same price range, apparently, someone else should be able to though lol .

900$ without the cooler unless you like gambling with random computer parts

I read that overclocking these chips isn't going to yeild the same performance increase as it did in the past

I mean considering what you spend on the cooler maybe just buying a i7 with a normal fan would be better

Well I guess I'll have to bump up the budget I guess.

Would an overclocked G3258 be appropriate? xD

it's probably the best budget option now (especially if you're near a micro center)

and it's upgradeable to anything else in haswell or broadwell, which means you don't have to buy another motherboard unless you want to yoloswag your way up to skylake/cannonlake (or broadwell-e) in a couple years

G3258


it's not that different from an i3 before the OC and it's 70 bucks cheaper soooo i guess

either that or get an i5, ignoring the fan
