Oh, ok. Would overclocking this cpu degrade the life? How high do you think I could put it?

Each CPU has it's own overclocking limits, so you can only find out by trying. Just keep in mind that by overclocking without raising voltage, you are not shortening the lifespan.

In terms of overclocking killing lifespan, I'm not exactly sure on figures, but these CPUs are expected to last between 10~20 years (I've still got an old P4 that runs perfectly fine), with a max/high overclock, you may shorten that lifespan to somewhere between 5~10 years. If you plan to keep the CPU for a good 3~5 years, then just go out all in overclocking (4.7ghz and up), but if you plan to keep it for much longer, I would go for a mild overclock (4.5ghz and below). I'm just pulling these numbers out of my rear, but this is what I've understood from what I've read in the past few years of learning overclocking.

It seems like 3770Ks are much higher binned chips than 3570Ks and can hit higher clocks with lower voltage, so I'm not sure if my results can be compared. My current 4.7ghz needs 1.264v to be stable and 4.5ghz needs 1.16v. This is testing with Prime95 AVX for 3+ hours. Gaming is the most intense task on my rig, so I don't need more stability than that.

Thx. Now it's not going over 35°C MAX with burn in test at max heat setting for 15mins. Weird.

Do you have any pictures where the camera is sort of aimed upwards where you can see the top fans/top of radiator?

I've been contemplating using one of these in push config in my Prodigy mostly because 2 sets of fans sets the radiator too deep for me. Was contemplating using a Swiftech Drive II. I also want to keep my lower drive cage and 230mm front fan. I know I can make it all work with a 45mm or 60mm radiator, but from what I've seen, these are quite a bit more effective.

Do you still have room for a full size GPU?
