    Be a man, do the right thing.
    You touch you buy.
    Special price for you sir.

    (any other chinese marketing BS I can think of)

    I think selling a W/C 780 at the time of the 290X is just poor timing, and also I dont imagine many people are in the market for W/C

    As I understand it, just in Gigabyte's x88 range, there are 6 boards, 2 of them are MATX, ine is ITX, I only linked that one as an x88 example, although to be honest i don't know if any of the smaller ones have hit retail yet.

    how fucking nerve racking was that?

    delidding a £250 cpu does get the heart rate up xD

    also gets the temps down once you finish and it still works :D

    Kinda makes the whole idea of getting a AMD A10 6800k a bit redundant Does it not?

    the i3 4330 is priced similarly and performs better in almost every way

    http://www.cpu-world.com/Compare/441/AMD_A10-Series_A10-6800K_vs_Intel_Core_i3_i3-4330.html

    The only main drawbacks are its only dual core and cant be overclocked but granted it would probably perform better with your 780 than the 6800k would which in a sense is almost perfect in a twisted sort of way as you only want to play CS:GO

    Inferior APU|Beastly GPU|Only plays CS:GO
    Superior DC CPU|Beastly GPU|Only Plays CS:GO

    If youre going to go overkill on a budget, at least do it right

    750K cost £60 (A 5800K without the iGPU and half the TDP), 4430 costs £110. For £150 I'd rather buy an i5 3570K and get an ITX for that. But then this defeats the point of making an ITX super budget build and dropping in a GPU in i already have.

    You still playing around with the CPU? I only ask because my youngest daughter has a 760K running at 4.8Ghz on air! Memory @ 2,229mhz.

    The TDP is so low, its insane. I'm running it on a stock FX cooler at 1.4v on 3.8Ghz and its barely gone past 45 degrees. Apparently the board can supply up to 1.5v being so small but after that it cant do more on a 4pin. Not sure what these 750K's can do on 1.4v, as there's very little online about them.

    Screw it, I'll leave it at 1.4v and bump it to 4.4Ghz when I get home and see if P95 loves me or not.
