LGA 1150/Socket H3 Computer Processors
Get more out of your computer with the LGA 1150 and the processors adaptable to the socket. As the most adaptable socket with the most processors converted or pluggable to it, the LGA 1150 is the optimal choice.
Intel Core Processors
Most popularly used amongst all are the Intel Core processors. Ramp up your CPU with a wide selection, from the 2009 revamp of the Intel Pentium to the i7 range of processors. For most PCs, any processor made sometime after 2009/2010 is fine as long as you don't do anything too demanding, such as editing videos or gaming.
Extra memory and ability are set aside for the LGA 1150 and it's processors via the DDR4 RAM DIMM most typically used in combination, although some opt for the cheaper DDR3 RAM DIMM option. The maximum DIMM slots can range from 2 to 4 for the processor, allowing you to tailor the computer for your own experience.
The 1150 socket is backwards compatible with the coolers of the previous LGA 1155 and LGA 1156, allowing you to keep your processor cool and running well even in hot weather and during long sessions on the computer. With a speed ranging from 2.5GHz to 6.4GHz for most intel processors on the 1150 socket, cooling is often needed, especially in high-demanding activities.
For games or other demanding activities
Gaming typically has a really demanding drain on the system of your computer. To give your PC the extra power it needs, plug in an i7, i5 or any other high-end processor. Ramp up the available power by overclocking your processor. Depending on which you have installed, you can clock the CPU, GPU and RAM. Most people who prefer to overclock opt towards the i5, despite being released in 2009, they have the highest capability and therefore offer more flexibility when it comes to gaming.
For video editing, the i7 is usually suggested and used. Due to its faster speeds by nature without overclocking, and an L3 cache of 11MB, the processor can help keep stability and speed for most editors.
