Hi,
I wanted to know what you guys think...

I can buy right now an intel i5 2500 OEM for $110... I think that's really cheap... And in some months buy an ivy bridge (next stepping), because i saw that Obrovsky (http://www.obr-hardware.com/2012/04/keep-your-sandy-bridge-e1-ivy-bridge.html) said than the firts ivy won't be good for OC under air... I have a new xspc rs240 WC kit for this build, but i don't know if it can handle something like 4.5ghz 24/7 (and maybe 5ghz just for fun) on that hot ivy's biggrin.gif...

Or should i wait for the april 29th ivy's?? (i5 3570k)


Mainly this build will be used for gaming (bf3) and web browsing...
It will be paired with a gtx580 or something like that in performance (maybe a gtx 660?)


I hope you understand my english xDD

The 2500 its like half price of the 3570k, i bet it (i5 2500) can get the job done for bf3... But on the other hand i don't want to waste the water cooling on a non "k" processor :s

And yes, i can wait for ivy...

I'd never buy a none overclocking model. The extra couple bucks is well worth the additional features you get. So I say wait for Ivy, and when it comes out buy the K model, don't be "cheap" If you looking to make a gaming machine and pairing with 580's, or 660's

You know you can't overclock the non k processors, right?

That non k i5 can be overclocked to 3.8ghz lol...

And i don't want to go for the cheapest option, is just that i'm a little bit worry about the oc margin on the ivy's
