In that picture the i5 and i7 are scaled at different speeds. I woudn't really call that fair considering the fact that the i7 has hyper threading as well. Certainly the slightly higher base clock could help with Overclocking but not by much.

Ivy Bridge doesnt get hot until say, 4.5ghz, or something around there and that's when you actually have to jack up the voltage a bit. The stock cooler will do fine. Plus it really depends on how high your CPU usage is.

i have decided to put a little bit more money on this for the cause of feeling satisfied for a while. you think that this cooler and the motherboard would allow for a 4.8ghz overclock on a 3570K ?

Honestly I'd rather go with the build I suggested, the one with the SSD which should be in the same price range.

If you buy from all the sellers listed you'll have a great discount. They're all trusted websites so you don't have to worry about buying from them. smile.gif

I would at least try to swing for the Z77X-D3H motherboard adridu listed in his build. That ASRock you have listed doesn't have a very good VRM setup and will inevitable run hot. It would be an OK choice if you didn't plan on overclocking.

Ecerything looks great, except for that PSU. The Stallions aren't some of Rosewill's recommended units.

If you want to stay with Rosewill I'd look at either their Capstone or Tachyon lineup. Otherwise here's a nice deal on a CX430 for $25. It's a good unit and you can't go wrong with that price:

hmm I'm not interested in rebate cards. i would rather just buy the psu and the mass is still a huge shipping factor on those.. about 25 dollars / 1 KG ratio.

is this one good enough?

No, that's not a quality unit. The PSU is the last place you want to cheap out on.

If you don't want MIRs then I'd get this one:

it's a gold mark

http://www.amazon.com/Rosewill-CAPSTONE-Certified-Modular-CAPSTONE-450-M/dp/B0081XXIHK/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1360794136&sr=1-1&keywords=Rosewill+CAPSTONE+Series+CAPSTONE-450-M+450W+ATX12V+v2.31+%26+EPS12V+v2.92+SLI+Ready+CrossFire+Ready+80+PLUS+GOLD+Certified+Modular+Active+PFC+Power+Supply

looks like it can be shipped globally for free at 80USD (70+10USD). if anyone can confirm, it would be magnificent.
