Just looking for some opinions on which cpu I should upgrade to as it seems to be the current bottleneck in my system. My currents setup consists of the Asus z87-pro motherboard, intel core i5-4670k, AMD RX 580 4gb and 8gb ram.

Thanks in advance

The highest processor you can drop in on that board is the i7-4770K or the i7-4790K. What are teh specs to your rams? Make and model of your PSU? You're also going to need a beefy aftermarket cooler.

Thanks for such a quick reply,
Ram - Crucial Ballistix Tactical 8GB DDR3 1600Mhz
PSU - Corsair CP-9020061-UK Builder Series CXM750
and the cooler I currently have is an
ARCTIC Freezer 13 - 200 Watt

Do you think I will see a significant increase in performance or should I be thinking about switching out the motherboard?
