Thread Starter 
in my future rig, i will be gaming and doing school work and everyday browsing. i am going to overclock (with a h70) and was wondering what cpu would be my best choice. i think the only difference of the k models it that the i7 one has hyperthreading and clocked higher, but the i5 one is clocked lower and has no hyperthreading? and since i have a mac laptop, can i also run mac os x on my rig?

The K models have unlocked multipliers and can over clock like beast! If you get a H70 you should get a 2500K or 2600K and try to get close to 5.0ghz.

Oops, you were asking which K model to get. Save the 100 bucks and get the 2500K. Mac OS? Not sure, wouldnt think so.
