    Question Looking to buy an Xeon CPU for my 1150 board as an upgrade

    One thing I'd like to ask is I will probably go anything over the 1230 v3, the only difference between the higher models is the clock speed by like 100-300 mhz, i think the max is 4ghz. Is it worth the extra £10-40 difference with only 100-300 mhz difference or should I just get the 1230 /...
