I don't overclock cause its pointless since the GPU is where its at.

MMOs will push almost any CPU to max... even when overclocked.

4770k @ 4.5. Debating on upgrading to a 4790k to go even higher.

To even be debating that is dumb sorry.

Yeah, it's not worth it at all. I know I read reviews of the 4790K and they really didn't overclock better at all. It's still Haswell so it's not any more efficient either. If you really have an itch to upgrade, wait until Broadwell at least. I wouldn't upgrade that soon, though.

All the reviews I've read show it having lower temps, but if its not overclocking better then there is no point.

the 4790k is pretty much a delid 4770k with iris pro as it's graphics..if you want a similar overclock just delid your cpu or find someone who can do it for you

Thanks for the heads up. I just upgraded to a Z97 overclocking motherboard, so I'll probably delid sometime soon.
