You know what I mean. If you don't, don't answer!

While I'm at it is there a decent board between $100-$125? And what's the best chipset for OCing?

Need to know, I'm ready to buy! Oh ya is the 3570K worth the extra $20?

As far as i know there is only one 2500k chip as it is a second gen sandy chip.

It is said from reviews that the 3570K is just better than the 2500k due to more cache, but it is considered a sideways chip. Neither an upgrade or a downgrade. Though people are saying from experience that the ivy is faster/snappier.

The 3570K does allow for pcie 3.0 and does run hotter.

People like to use the z77 chip with the ivy.

As far as what board and what price, idk as i am keeping my 2600k/z68 for quite a while.

I have read that the ivy is even better at OC.

Reviews say that the ivy is better in some ways while sandy is better in other ways. You will have to do some research or wait for someone to reply who is more knowledgeable on the subject.

But i think i would go with the ivy for that little bit more assuming that you don't use HT as neither chip has it.

Micro Center has 2500k's for $169 and 3570K's for $189. Both boxed but I guess the 3570 doesn't come with a fan? The heat issue has me leaning toward the 2500K. the summer ambient temp in my room can get pretty high.

Don't you be worrying about temps, Intel know how to build cpu's to withstand all climates. For example, yesterday the heat index reached 106f here and about 68% humidity and I was gaming on my PC like it was nothing. CPU must have been in the far 60c and the gpu was probably in the 100c range as always in the summer and I've had this PC for more than 4 years now.

So check this out! I got a boxed 3570K, a Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H and 16 GB's of Kingston Hyper-X PC3 1600 for $399! What a sweet deal. The 3570K was $189, the mobo was $50 off when purchased with the ivy so it was $109, and the ram was $99 at Micro Center. Gotta check and see what the best air cooled heat sink is currently for the LGA1155 processors.

if you use the IGP the 3570 is better. this also effects quicksync.
the board is pretty good and the deal is as well. congrats :)

how much do you want to spend on the cooler?

You can either be part of the problem or be part of the solution.

Sweet Deal Payton Enjoy that bad boy just get a good heatsink those Ivy bridges run hotter than the Sandybridge 2500K's.Reason intel used thermal paste rather than solder under the IHS.Maybe the next revisions will use solder and run cooler. But for now dont go much higher than 4.2ghz without watercooling
.Corsair's H80 /100 would do well with some good fans

I've got my 2500 at 4.4 quite happily, with air cooling.

Ya the temps don't seem too bad. A little high. So many different temp sensors on that cpu I'm not sure which would be the better to monitor?!? So I'm playing with settimgs. The CPU temp is showing as 29C while at the same time with the cpu running at 4.5 the CPU package and core temps were all in the mid 90'sC with buzzers going off all over the place. That IS hot!
