Same as for the previous ones - it's overpriced for what you get, and the "thermal armor" is worthless.

Yeah I already have two GTX 680's in SLI So I think I'm just going for an i5 then.

So I went for the 4670k and the UD4H combo. I talked to one of my friends who DJ's and he said that i5 is plenty enough for him for music editing. He said that i7 does help because of hyperthreading but it's plenty to use the i5.

Lots of people that only game make the mistake of thinking that 15% here or there isn't enough to swing either way. However if this is for work, 10s x 50 operations in a day of editing make a big difference. Upgrading from merely 2 generations back took a 3 hour CAD project down to 20 minutes for us. And on paper, ehh, just another 15%. I'd say go 4770k, I guess you can always upgrade later given same socket

True. But that's for people who work with a lot of editing though like you said. But for someone like me, who doesn't even know how to do video edit nor would want to, I guess an i5 is enough. The only editing that I will do is some light audio editing, but like I said it's only for like recording acoustic guitar and some audio vocals.

What if we do "occasional" video editing on say AVID or Premiere Pro (a project every few months), but mainly used for gaming? 'pologize if this isn't your area of expertise.

From what I understand, please correct me if I'm wrong, it would just take longer for the video to process.

Yes it would take longer to code, transcode, etc. Honestly, the big revolution w/ video came with Sandy and Quick Sync, IGP on Haswell only makes that better. W/ higher frequencies for IGP that kind of work just gets better. W/ video and audio you use so many different tools, iTunes, handbrake etc that you are buying insurance when it comes to paying for hyper threading on say 4770k. You may think you only use Vegas, but a say will come when you'll want to rip a bunch of raw clips w/ handbrake so you can put them on a DVD or something, and that's when you'll see the benefit. You can't plan around just one app all the time.
