4.7 to 4.8GHz should be a walk in the park with any recommended air cooling solution, so if 4.3 to 4.5GHz is your goal, then the Hyper 212 Plus will be more than good enough.

Although, I would still rather recommend a heatsink that has a flat base instead of the HDT like the Hyper 212 Plus (that is, for Sandy Bridge). Now, I might be biased, but I do recommend the Thermaltake Frio (not the OCK version). It's $57.99 shipped at Newegg.com, but I personally think that it's worth it.

WoW is not a gpu intensive game at all, more cpu intensive as any blizzard game. with 4.5ghz you will not see wow go below 50-60 max at 25 man raids with ultra settings and very heavy intesive graphics display if u raid and during 10mans or 5 mans u'll prob average around 100-250 fps

Everything will be bought from Newegg.com

The Hardware i am pretty set on getting are
2500k
Asus P8P67 of some sort
Windows 7

Thanks for any help
jkpheonix, with that budget, you can afford to get 2600K instead of 2500K... bundled with ASUS P8P67 PRO/EVO or Z68 series.

You can get Noctua CPU cooler instead of CM Hyper212+ (latter is the best bargain option)

Also get SSD (maybe 60-120GB)... and a performance graphics card ati and nvidia single or dual card config.

Not need to buy on the cheap with $1300 budget you have.

CPU: Intel Core i5 2500K 3.3GHz ~ $220
CLR: Noctua NH-D14 ~ $90
GPU: ASUS DirectCU II 2GB 6950 ~ $290
RAM: 2x4GB G.Skill RipJaws X 1600MHz CL9 ~ $60
HDD: Samsung SpinPoint F3 1TB ~ $60
PSU: SeaSonic X-Series 560w 80+ Gold ~ $127
DVD: ASUS 24x DVD burner ~ $21
Mon: ASUS VH242H 23.6" 1080p LED backlit (w/ speakers) ~ $190

Total $1417 + $100 for OS is $1517. I think that's a pretty solid build. You should be able to work off that and shave a bit off the price. Or splurge a little
If you're looking to save money on that build, you can drop the Raven for something cheaper (even though it is a really pretty case)

A HAF 912($50) or a Silverstone($100) ST06 are good choices too for cases, and will free up money to get a SSD

However, the 2600K is a waste of money if the HT will never be used.

Too many people are getting the 2600K because it seems to be superior. However, when choosing between the 2500K and the 2600K, it's now like choosing the right tool for the job: if you're using applications that will benefit from HT (like heavy video editing and encoding, I think), then the 2600K could be a wiser purchase. If the system will only be used for gaming, internet, e-mail, and maybe office applications (and maybe movies and music), then the 2500K is the wiser choice.

I've had many people tell me that if HT is enabled, then it hinders overclocking potential and gaming performance (for some reason).

I'm pretty sure it's because HT requires more voltage and puts out more heat, which makes sense. I haven't actually tested my rig without HT on, but that seems to be the issue.
