I'm running an i7-920@3.8GHz on an ASRock X58 Extreme with 24GB and an Arctic Cooling Freezer XTREME Rev.2.

Is there a reason why I should update my system to a new Board with a Z77 chipset and a i5-3570K?

While playing Guild Wars 2 I notice, that even at 3.8GHz my four cores are at ~80% so I'm guessing I need more CPU power. Will I get this with a i5-3570K? Will I only get more power with the i5 when I also overclock it? when is the "break eaven" and how much more can I overclock the i5 without introducting water cooling?
