Recently the 4.5Ghz overclock I've had on my 4690k for over two years has become unstable and I've had to drop down to, at first to 4.4Ghz and now 4.3Ghz in order to keep it stable. I get the feeling that it's time for a replacement and I've been pondering my upgrade options. I really like my current motherboard and RAM setup so simply swapping out the i5 for a 4790k is quite appealing. I don't think the cost of buying a new motherboard, DDR4 RAM and CPU is really worth it considering the performance gains. I do notice a few odd CPU limits in some games, even with my GTX980. GTA V frequently pushes the CPU to 100% across all cores for example. Just interested in what you guys think. Is the 4790k a good option at this point or do you think I should just put up with the lower clock speed and wait for a full CPU, mobo and RAM upgrade later down the line?
