    Hey fellows of the interwebs.

    Just upgraded and wanting to know is it worth keeping my i7 2600k and my z77 sabertooth MB.. Both work fine and still worked till 2 weeks ago when i upgraded. Cpu never ended up getting over clocked but always ran cold as.

    Also lets see a happy birthday for the queen.....................

    Short answer: yes. An overclocked 2600K is comparable in performance to a stock skylake for gaming purposes.

    I meant to say "no, the 2600K is a terrible chip and you should send me the system to be disposed of." :p
