I want to buy this tonight since it's cheap and I already have a cooler. I'm just wondering if OEM CPUs have more issues or something.

Thanks.
You are in SoCal? You are not within driving distance to a Micro Center? They have the best prices on chips.

Fry's is like 2 hours away and Micro Center is like 5 hours away. Not to mention TigerDirect doesn't charge tax here in CA. I'd rather just have it shipped to me anyways.

 

Thanks for the feedback.

No problem. If you are feeling adventurous I have heard that Best Buy will match Micro Center prices if you go in and talk to them. $169.99 for a 3570k is a nice deal if they will match.

The Best Buy I have in my area is really lame and doesn't sell any CPUs.

Sorry, should have been more clear. The guys here that said they got Best Buy to match said they don’t carry any cpus in the store, but they would order one and match the Micro Center price.

Not sure what you mean by tweaking too many things, but since you are on a Asus mobo I would follow the guide below to do your ocing. The average 3770k is around 1.25v to stabilize 4.5, needing over 1.3v for it would be considered not very good, while under 1.2v is considered good.

But... but... I did it with 1.2v frown.giftongue.gif

I mean just playing around with different combos and getting the thing to be stable overall.
