    Question  Bottleneck? by Scott

    Hi, will this CPU bottle neck with a Sapphire Nitro R9 380X?

    Answer by matthewh on Saturday, March 26, 2016
    Hello Scott, This CPU will not bottle neck your graphics card however, I would recommend upgrading to the latest 1151 socket from Intel to gain the most of both components.

    Yes that would be fine.

    Question  Compatible ? by Ega

    Hello, what can you say about this system? Will the CPU be compatible with the MB straight from the box?
    Is the PSU enough for everything?
    Will the ram fit under the Be Quiet cooler?

    Answer by shaund on Tuesday, February 23, 2016

    Everything there will be compatible, the RAM will have enough clearance from the CPU cooler and the Power supply will be enough for everything you have listed.

    Question  Compatible motherboard straight out the box by Kevin

    Hi, do you have a list of motherboards that support this CPU without a bios update? Obviously I don't have another 1150 CPU laying around to use just to update the bios.

    I can't see an option to add the Bios Update Service to the basket (is this in-store only?) and I can't travel to the store.

    Answer by shaund on Friday, November 27, 2015
    Hi Kevin,

    The Asus Pro-Gamer and the Gigabyte Game Plus will support this chip out of the box.

    Question  Question by easty

    Thank you for the reply about all the components being compatible. I just have ask though is there a motherboard you could recommend for all of the components. The one i had found looks good but i would like to know.

    Thank you

    Answer by shaund on Tuesday, November 24, 2015

    It all comes down to what you're after, the Gaming 3 board that you picked out will be absolutely fine, if you're looking for something with a bit of style the Gigabyte Game Plus board would also be fine. If you're looking for a higher quality board with better audio then the Gaming 5 would be your best choice.
