Just a heads up, my buddy did that to a 4790K, over-clocked it a bit and it lasted 3 years. I'm sure you'll do it right and it will pass tests at first but it may have a shorter life than normal.
I was talking about deliding the horn, not the cpu. hehe
My current computer is 6 years old now, it was pretty high-end back in the day. I paid like $7000 for it.
It was the first consumer pc to support usb 3.0 and HDMI, as well as i7 and Xeons, and cuda.
It has 64gb ddr3, i7 3820 8HT 3.8ghz, 1tb ssd, 4tb hdd, nv 6000 series gpu, xonar sc, BD-RW, 600w platinum psu. 40" 4K 60hz LCD.
Garbage inefficient hog by today's standards... but back then it was l33t...
