Yep, you should get the 4790k (which is the best 1150 socket can get) or overclock this one to 4.5Ghz or so.

I guess. I'd go with a Z97 board since the 4690k has an unlocked multiplier.

I've got a stable overclock of 4.5Ghz at 1.22V on air. I had a stable 4.7229Ghz but would reach the 80s while gaming so I had to say goodby to it. Reason next build will be custom water cooled.

Bought a whole set of custom water cooling set up and stole a 40 liter water barrel to cool a X5650 at 4.2Ghz. Turned out it reaches 80 degrees immediately, same result as my air cooling. Guess it was because it was drawing too much power that no cooling system could hold on to it.

I'd say i5. With an 9370, you won't be able to upgrade while with an i5, you can still go up to an i7.

I followed this table at anandtech.com, but my CPU needed a bit more voltage. At 4.3GHz my CPU is 100% stable at 1.146V.

Try using OCCT for stability (1h) and prime95 for max temperature test (DO NOT go higher than 26.6 version for haswell!) Good luck!

Is it worth it to upgrade to this CPU?
I'm planning to OC the crap out of this thing tho…


Also, if it is worth it, will I be able to adequately (4.2GHZ+) OC this with my board and cooler?

No, wait for 7/8th gen, your current is good for now, but overclocking on a H mobo is difficult as not everything is "unlocked"
