Well, I finally made the jump to Intel after all my builds had been AMD. I couldn't pass up the in store sale CompUSA (soon to be Tigerdirect) had on black friday! biggrin.gif Waited in line for 3 hours but it was well worth it. I'm currently waiting for my motherboard (ASRock Z77 Extreme4) to arrive on monday and then I'll be set for some upgrade fun!

I know how you feel....I feel the same but about not having a microcenter nearby.

Fry's and Micrcenter are over 1 hour for me and closer to two hours.
(traffic, girls in bikinis...)
I live near one or two BB's though and a big-ass Office Depot.

nothing like newegg and sometimes eBay for the stuff you can't get locally.

Best Buy prices are Horrid tho.. and what they keep in stock for the most part is aged hardware.

sometimes you have to do what you have to do....
like I'm thankful Radio Shack is open 7 days a week, nothing like running down during a half-time of a football game
to grab some AS5 to finish a Sunday build or upgrade...

Hey I'm posting basically to sub. I just ordered an i5-3570k with a ASUS P8Z77-V Pro. I've been an AMD guy for a long time and I also owned a i5-2500k rig for a few months. Any major differences in overclocking between the ivy and sandy?
