Too bad he already ordered a 4770k :/ which was probably the best choice anyway if he had the budget for it. thumb.gif

probably just me but I'd shy away from any used overclocked hardware...you might get nice performance but there's no telling how soon it'll die on ya

if brand new their price:performance is practically the same
4.5GHz on a 35/4670K (a common max OC w/o delidding) is comparable to 5GHz on 2500K...a common max OC..except the former is more power efficient and supports pcie3 at the cost of higher temps
