Even with the low end cooling (h60 with one fan?) you got good temps now, you can push voltage more
I mean a bad chip for benchmark. There's no sense pushing a 3570K further 4.2-4.5 GHz. Meanwhile if you do it for bench its cool and fun to have a 5 GHz chip to benchmark.
Its not that much low-end. I have the 2013 edition wich i think its far superior of the previous version. I have it with Corsair SP120 High Perfomance edition P/P.
Anyhow i was able to bench at 4,9 GHz under wc but didn't feel very comfortable giving 1,50-1,55V to the cpu. Then i saw the vcore problem thread and i discovered maybe they were 1,60V-1.65V .
