Welcome RazerZ! I hope you do stay, you'll find it's a tighter group around here and a great place.
Also *highfive* since I played viola in middle school and a big anime fan as well.
Enjoy the DH15 as well!
What other forum were you a member of if you don't mind me askin'
Hyperthreading isn't as helpful as most people think, especially for the extra $80 to $120 you'd end up spending for the i5 to i7 difference. With that amount, you can spend more on additional memory, or just move on up to the X79 or X99 platform for hexacore CPU's.
Or he could buy one of your old CPUs
I'm also on Tom'sHardware if you're interested. http://www.tomshardw...mmunity/profile
Welcome to the site and congrats on the win!
Rock collection, huh? Like gemstones, minerals, and similar ones?
Yes! Everything from Agate to Zircon lol. Also have a decent fossil collection going as well, albeit it's tiny compared to the buckets of rocks and minerals I have accumulated over the years.
Welcome. Are you a architect/ engineer? I find the i7 4770k to be plentiful paired with 32GB of ram. I run Autocad 2013 and It barely touches the other cores.
PS. the Noctua is a great cooler! Running one in this rig.

Not yet, but I plan to study mechanical engineering. Would other programs such as AutoDesk Inventor, Matlab, Catia, SolidWorks, Labview, etc. benefit from the i7?
I want to put the DH-15 to good use, but saving money is always nice. Would I see a noticeable performance gain in CAD programs with an overclocked 4670k compared to a stock i5 4430?
Nice setup btw, I'd love to do something similar to it.
