Last week I was at Fry's and they had the MSI z87 M-Power SP on clearance for $88 plus a $30 rebate. I could not pass that up so I took one home. Today I finally picked up an I5 4690k to drop in there. My question is, I currently have an Asus P8Z77 Deluxe with an I5 2500k clocked at 4.5 gHZ. I just got it up and running and have not overclocked the 4690k at all, but it is turbo'ing to 4.0 at stock. Which one would you guys use, and is overclocking vastly different on Devil's Canyon than Sandy Bridge? All I did with the 2500k is change the multiplier to 45 and left evrything else on auto. It would stay at 1.2 volts so I just left it alone. TIA

It's a sidegrade at worst, and a mild gain at best unless you plan to do tri-SLI or something.
