I'd go 3770k. The performance gains don't really justify the extra $30 or so, and there have been reported overclocking issues, where as while Ivy Bridge might not go as high without going through a meltdown, it performs beautifully under a nice 4.5 Ghz overclock, assuming a nice cooler is in question (which you have).

Sweet, so what motherboard would you recommend with a 3770k?

ASRock Z77 Extreme6 is solid choice. thumb.gif

Just go with some 1866MHz G.Skill memory the price differences between 1600MHz is minimal.

Although not sure why you are going with Z77, don't let these people convince you otherwise. If you are building a new rig, it would be wise to go with 1150 chipset.

I'm diggin the build you gave me, but I've been under the impression that a good Z77 is better so that's why. You still think I should go with what you gave me, even for overclocking?

It's not true at all, with the H110 and the bGears fans in Push/Pull. You will have no problem hitting 4.5GHz. Wouldn't be surprised if you were sitting at a comfortable 4.7GHz to be honest.

That fan setup combined with H110 should make Haswell's heat irrelevant for the most part.

Sounds good bro, I'm gonna give this a go, i'll let you know what I end up going with. Thanks for your feedback smile.gif

No problem, here's an example of what I'm talking about (taken from another persons thread with a 4770k and H110):

A 4770k @ 4.0ghz - 1.16v w/ H110 temps 23C lowest 58C maximum load (Haswell Maximum Temp or TJMAX is 100C)

Now he's using stock fans in Pull, which only have static pressure of 1.64mm-H2O. The fans I told you to get bgears B-blaster have a static pressure of 3.50mm-H2O. Now you are going to have four of them in Push/Pull setup. Meaning fans on top of the radiator are pushing downwards (Push) and fans underneath radiator will be pushing downwards also (or actually "Pulling" so Pull). Creating a vacuum effect. Not only do you have more than twice the static pressure of the stock fans, you are also adding an additional two to the setup. Just make sure you grab a decent Fan Controller like this one (Sunbeam RHK-EX-BA), or run the fans directly off the motherboard so they are running at full speed. You connect those fans to the Fan Controller and control them that way or directly off motherboard. You would set the pump to maximum speed on the H110 also to increase performance of custom fan setup.

Now you are only going to be running a 4670k, so no hyper threading. Which means a lot less heat. With those fans in Push/Pull I cannot see why 4.8GHz shouldn't be achievable. Unless of course you just get a bad overclocker altogether. Which will have nothing to do with heat but just bad luck.
