I prefer Haswell, because it's newer and only $13 more expensive. I cannot decide for Maria, it must be her decision.

Ah gotcha. Well if my opinion means anything, I have been extremely pleased with how low of voltage I need to run this at higher clock speeds while maintaing low temps. From what I've read, Intel has not had the time to fine tune the haswell chips as well as Ivy Bridge.

3570 vs 4670 (same OC) haswell will win by a small margin.. You wont feel it in games. So for the sake of price, go with IB..
3570 vs 3570K is that the K is unlocked and can go MUCH higher (if you win the silicon lottery)
Since you/she is not planing to do any OC (or maybe 4.0) go with IB non K.
It will be the cheapest and bring close to the same performance as 4670K at 4.0.
When working on that low OCs, you should be able to run the chip with a good air cooler or close to any AIO water coolers.

All this talk of OC reminds me that I must apply the AC MX-4 I bought and take my 8320 up to or as close to 4.5 GHz , running my h100 push pull should handle it I think. I'll probably get onto it tomorrow.

Gambi - have you taken your 780 for a spin online BF4 yet?

If so do you notice any fps difference between stock clock and high OC on your 780? Or even your CPU for that matter.

Edit: Grammar.

People wanted me to add some pictures of my new fan setup for another thread so used the opportunity to take loads of new pics and show of my Haf XB and all its mods! :-P

First off a front shot:



Power/HDD Led Mod (changed them to white), using a tip from another member instead of trying to replace the power led I simply disabled it (cut the track) and mounted 2 new ones either side of the button, used 1.8mm leds:




Another simple mod was my suspended HDD mount, this 2tb drive was way too loud so took an old CD drive apart and used the top piece of metal and simple drilled some holes in the sides and cable tied some hair bands to it. Does the job and the drive is much quieter now:




Next mod was the PSU bracket, was annoyed at how much extra room I needed behind the PC for the PSU when there was more than enough room inside the case so made a flush mount PSU bracket. Used a dremel to cut it out of .7mm stainless steel (used the original bracket as a template) and just slapped some gloss black car paint on it as its all I had laying around. Does the job and doesn't look too bad and considering its behind the comp I never see it anyway so function was the main objective:




Some shots of the fans (had to make extra holes in the front to fit the 2 thermalright fans as they are 140mm but 120mm mounting holes):





And last but not least I lit that baby up! Using RGB strips and a wireless infrared controller (controlled by my Harmony) I placed strips along both side panels, around the front fans and around the 200mm fan in the recess (you can see where I drilled for the front fans in this first pic), these are incredibly bright they light up the whole room!:





Hid the controller here (Has all sorts of different flashing modes and can even beat to music):



And the result:





All is good apart from the fan screws on the top 200mm fan but Cooler Master's ignorance is a different story

Please comment guys let me know what you think...

Nice work on the flush mount psu bracket, it used to do my head in that they didn't supply one as my desk is only 45cm deep and it used to over hang a little cause of the psu power cable, now that I got my flush mount it fits just snug.

Same, my desk is 46.5cm lol

I am happy with it, took hours with a dremel though and it wasn't easy!!

this kind of reminds me of

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 75




All is good apart from the fan screws on the top 200mm fan but Cooler Master's ignorance is a different story
