Also, I'm now trying 4.6GHz @ 1.32v, how does that sound?
Yeah you are definitely right, but something inside me is insisting that I should get ready with a platform that can support 3way SLI easily. I got rid of my midtower 500R and ordered a Cosmos II and took the first step but I can't decide on the 2nd step. Either a 2nd 670 or a 3930k and a RIV mobo.

It depend on the software. If it uses more than 4 threads 3930k will destroy, if it doesn't then the 3570k will win.
In gaming do games use more than 4 threads at the moment?

I hear stories that even for SLI 670, BF3 might bottleneck with a 3570k. THis is my main concern as I will go SLI soon.
