Just need help checking a CPU

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi i have just recieved all the parts for my new computer, but the cpu i wanted is out of stock everywhere frown.gif

Anyway i wanted to get a i5 2500K and oc it to about 4.5Ghz, but since i can't get it anymore i was wondering if like the i5 3570K is compatible with what i have.

Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO w Transparent 12cm
Asrock Z77-EXTREME4 Z77
Corsair Vengeance CMZ8GX3M2A1600C8 8GB (2x4GB)
Corsair 120GB Force GT Series 3 SSD
EVGA GTX670 2GB FTW PCIe
Antec ATX TruePower 750W
HAF 922

I think thats it. Atleast i think its the 3570K im not sure what the best cpu would be...
And the overclock will probably be as simple as possible (like auto overclock or something).

It will be compatible with that board, and there's no shame in going with Ivy Bridge anyway, as long as you don't mind the extra heat you'll have to contend with. The performance is going to be about the same as a 2500k, even if you would have been able to get the 2500k to higher speeds.

Where do you live that it is not available?
An I5-3570k would be comparable.

Im in Tasmania tongue.gif
and so i will be able to get the i5 3570 up to 4.2 or so? without any difficulty?
And why would they make a cpu that produces more heat? Like what does it have that the 2500K doesnt?

The 3570k at 4.2ghz will be similar to the i5-2500k at 4.5ghz or so. The I5-3570k uses 3d transistors and incorporates a die shrink, as to the whole heat thing, its been in debate. Its been blamed on the TIM used under the heatspreader and it has also been blamed on the die shrink/3d transistors. I do not know exactly why it produces more heat, that should not be a concern as it will still perform similar to an I5-2500k either way.
