    i5-7500 with 750ti?

    So basically right now, I have a 750ti and a fx6300. I want to upgrade, because my CPU cant cope with a few games, or it can but at very low FPS. I want to upgrade this, my motherboard and my RAM, in order to get better FPs in games. Is this a sensible idea? Or is a i5-7500 and a 750ti a bad idea?

    Why is my i7 4790K's Temperatures Un-Stable?

    Hello, Basically, even when the CPU is idle it can go from 40 degrees to 43 to 45 back to 40 etc. When stress testing this, it can go from 40 to about 70 back to 50 to 75 to 63... you get the idea.. I'm using a H80i, running at 4.4GHz, 1.2V (I haven't tested it at lower voltages yet) Any ideas?
