So now, do you think $825 will get me a quality motherboard with corei52500k or i72600k?

Which means it will fall at just $2000 not looking to spend anything over that.
Ok, at this point, this is turning into a pretty awesome build.

So... why not maximize that $825?

1. 2500K probably like $225 - $250?

2. Mobo - can you live without the Maximus? UD4's, UD5 or ASUS P8P67 EVO

http://benchmarkreviews.com/index.ph...=667&Itemid=69

P8P67 ~$160
P8P67 PRO ~190
P8P67 EVO ~210
P8P67 Deluxe ~235
SABERTOOTHP67 ~$219
P8P67 WS SC ~$259
Maximus IV Extreme ~365

What are your mobo options at $200 - $250 max?

So, $250 for CPU + $225 - $250 mobo = $500.

That leaves you $325 to get a 2nd 470.

Make sure it's MSI twin frozr II, or the Gigabyte superclocked.

You could get this one and unlock it to a 470, or I may know someone who is selling his for like $220ish, and it's already unlocked to a 470:
MSI N465GTX Twin Frozr II Golden Edition

You may be able to squeeze the Zalman Cooler for your other 470 if you manage to get a used one for a good price.

Didn't you get a better OC with your 875k? I thought you were at 4.5ghz or something...

VERY NICE!

Hey, I'm working on something that will help us, once and for all determine how all our processors perform Clock for Clock.

Are you interested in running some benchmarks at different clocks, and taking screenshots of results?

And anybody else for that matter, if you're interested in running benchmarks at different clocks, from ANY CPU, this way we'll know how all processors perform at stock and Overclock vs Overclock.

All the reviews are great, but then they only show the overclocked processor vs everything else at stock.

I want to know how close, or how much better processors perform at the SAME overclocks, in selected benchmarks. For example:

I7-980x @ 4.0 vs 2600K @ 4.0 vs I7-930 @ 4.0 vs 1100T @ 4.0, etc, etc

I already have a blueprint in place, now I just need people to run benchmarks, so we can get data, and I will keep building upon this, and will tell everybody more about it.

So right now, I'm looking for anyone willing to run benchmarks, with any processor, PM me and I will give you more details.

dude, i did this for xtremehardware.it ... i compared my 875K vs 2500K vs 2600K (HT on/off) with 10 benchmarks ... cinebench, 7zip, winrar, handbrake, passmark, 3dmark vantage, pcmark vantage, aida64 and x264 HD bench ... obvisouly @ default and @ 4000mhz

do you have link to your review?

2500K (the speedstep must be enabled if you wanna clock these chips)
