Hi everyone, I intend to build a high end gaming rig and i will game a lot and also I will do sound mixing (DJ). I've finished deciding on all the parts needed, however I'm extremely confused on the processor, either i should buy a i5 3570 or a i5 3570k. I know the differences and i do NOT want to do overclocking cause I think it is really risky. But I read that 3570k is better on stock clock speeds. Now the price difference here in India is 2700 rupees which is $51(when u convert it). So in the end, which is the best way to go and also, is it better to wait for the Haswell processors??

my setup
i5 3570/i5 3570k
asrock-h77-pro4-mvp-motherboard
Corsair Vengeance DDR3 8 GB (4GBx2)
Zotac GTX 680
Corsair 650w PSU
WD Blue 1TB

PS: How is the setup?? Any problems with it??
Thanks, Srilekh

Go with the non-K version. As you said, you do not plan to overclock and you have chosen a motherboard which won't allow you to overclock anyway.

yup "k" is the designation for a unloicked intel cpu which allows for overclocking...non "k's" donot...choose the non k\\

or conversley if you want to read up on oc'ing and do research you can attain another 5-10 fps in games by overclocking....choose the k version and a z77 motherboard.

I am also from India. You should go with the non k one and get another graphics card. Zotac ones arent that good. So get a asus or evga gtx 680 instead!

I can't recommend the Core i5 3570 as it is a waste of money over the slightly lower clocked Core i5-3350P. If you are serious about not overclocking, the 3350P is still a high-end processor and could save you some money.

However, you said that you don't wish to overclock because it's risky. Overclocking is nowhere near as risky today as it used to be. It has also been made incredibly simple to do - with the i5 3570K you change one number in the BIOS and you can have a 20-25% overclock. I am currently running my i5 3570K on an ASRock Pro4 motherboard at 4.5GHz with hardly any tweaking at all. By going with the 3570K you will prolong your CPU's lifespan and save yourself money in the future.

So my recommendation is the 3350P + h77 motherboard OR the 3570K + z77 motherboard.

Who the hell says that overclocking adds to the lifespan of a cpu? Overclocking reduces the lifespan and also there is also the risk of heat when overclocking and your computer may burn if its overclocked too much because of heat and overclocking should never be done with the stock cooler as stock coolers are never good!

I also thought the same!!!! muttley89.. you are right, mabye I would do overclocking in the future but the problem is that i dont want to spend extra for a cooler. I dont mind buying the 3570k its just that i need to spend for a Z77 mobo and a cooler. Besides, even if I do overclocking, i wont go past 4.0ghz or at max 4.1ghz. Im still confused!!!!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure that when Muttley89 said, "prolong your CPU's lifespan," he meant that it allows you to use the cpu longer before it becomes obsolete and having to upgrade, not necessarily that the cpu will last longer before failing.

Coolers dont cost that much. Get the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo. Its only about Rs 2200 at flipkart. Use the money saved on the cpu for a cooler.

Thanks jordonc that's exactly what I meant. In the long run you could save yourself money because you can overclock the 3570k to stay competitive with more current processors in say 2-3 years time, whereas the 3750 will remain at the same speed.

Also on many of the 3570k chips, you can reach 4.0-4.2GHz without any manual voltage tweaking.

the point is, is the 3570k worth the extra $55? not to forget that i need more money for an z77 mobo!!

I would actually recommend that you switch the GTX 680 for a HD 7970 - that will save you a lot of money too and both of those cards will max out anything you throw at them. If you want to play CPU intensive games like ARMA 3 and Skyrim then a better processor will benefit you more. (http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-car... - Tom's hardware recommends the HD 7970 over the GTX 680 as the small increase in performance is not worth the price).

@SuperGamerBoy, the price of the asrock-h77-pro4-mvp-motherboard is around 6800 rupees and as you said a good z77 mobo will cost 12000 rupees. By looking at the total cost of just the mobo and the cpu, I think the i5 3570 (non-OC) and a asrock-h77-pro4-mvp will give more performence for the buck.

no overclock then no 3570k...!

the only difference between these two cpus is that the one is locked and the other one is unlocked!about the performance you wont see the least difference!3570k may give you 1-2 fps thats it!go for the 3570 its the same thing!

If you dont want to overclock, then i5 3570 and h77 is ok. If you want to overclock get the i5 3570k a custom cooler and a good z77 motherboard like this- http://www.flipkart.com/gigabyte-ga-z77x-ud3h-motherboa... or this- http://www.google.co.in/url?q=http://www.flipkart.com/a... or this-http://www.google.co.in/url?q=http://www.flipkart.com/a... or if you want a budget z77 then get this- http://www.google.co.in/url?q=http://www.flipkart.com/g... and have a look at if you want some more options- http://www.google.co.in/search?q=AsRock+Z77+Flipkart&bt... these are asrock motherboards

http://www.flipkart.com/msi-z77ma-g45-motherboard/p/itm...


If you 100% don't want to overclock then buy this:

i5 3470 - 11560
H77 Pro4 - 6600
HD 7970 - 32500

TOTAL: 50660

You will see virtually no difference in any of those processors if you are not overclocking. You don't need the overclocking ability of the Z77 series and the HD 7970 is better than a GTX 670, and the slight increase in performance from the GTX 680 isn't worth the extra cost.

3570K is made for overclocking. I have the Hyper 212 plus heat-sink and mine never goes above 70 degrees on full load overclocked to 4.2 ghz at stock voltage. Why wound't you want a processor that's faster and up-gradable for the future?

I'd say it can be dangerous if you start messing with the voltage or don't have a better than stock heat-sink. You can look at intel's stock heat-sink and the hyper 212 and immediately tell the latter will cool better.

It can also be dangerous if you get into water cooling. That's if you want to push your cpu to into the 4.5 and above range. A line breaks and spills coolant over your motherboard and probably graphics card and they're done. They make some pretty good heat sinks out there that will go beyond the 4.2ghz range. Right now 4.2 is fast enough for me.

Best of luck! You're looking to the right place for advice.

http://www.flipkart.com/msi-z77ma-g45-motherboard/p/itm...

These are budget z77 motherboards but they should be enough for your needs. Both are good enough for you but now its your choice. The asrock is only 500 more so no budget problems there. I would personally recommend the ASROCK out of these two but if you ask we my recommendation, i would say the Gigabyte GA-Z77-UD3H which costs about 5000 more. So go for the asrock which cost Rs 8500.

@muttley89, thank you so much i've decided actually to get the 3570k cause it may helpful in the future to OC (by that time i should know how to OC Properly!!) and I realized that I dont have to spend more on the mobo cause the difference between the h77 pro4 and the z77 pro4 is barely RS:2000 so I think it is a good IDEA to get a 3570k and a z77 pro4. Thank you so much!!

Now @sridude369 choose an answer as the best solution and tell a mod to close this thread if you have decided everything about the rig.

It can also be dangerous if you get into water cooling. That's if you want to push your cpu to into the 4.5 and above range. A line breaks and spills coolant over your motherboard and probably graphics card and they're done. They make some pretty good heat sinks out there that will go beyond the 4.2ghz range. Right now 4.2 is fast enough for me.

Best of luck! You're looking to the right place for advice.



for this 3570K can i also use this Corsair H50/H60 CPU Cooler, also not going to full OC for this CPU tend only do atleast 4.0 GHz Max, because you mention that "It can also be dangerous if you get into water cooling" why? im confuse about this statement.

Hi everyone, I intend to build a high end gaming rig and i will game a lot and also I will do sound mixing (DJ). I've finished deciding on all the parts needed, however I'm extremely confused on the processor, either i should buy a i5 3570 or a i5 3570k. I know the differences and i do NOT want to do overclocking cause I think it is really risky. But I read that 3570k is better on stock clock speeds. Now the price difference here in India is 2700 rupees which is $51(when u convert it). So in the end, which is the best way to go and also, is it better to wait for the Haswell processors??

my setup
i5 3570/i5 3570k
asrock-h77-pro4-mvp-motherboard
Corsair Vengeance DDR3 8 GB (4GBx2)
Zotac GTX 680
Corsair 650w PSU
WD Blue 1TB

PS: How is the setup?? Any problems with it??
Thanks, Srilekh


I can't recommend the Core i5 3570 as it is a waste of money over the slightly lower clocked Core i5-3350P. If you are serious about not overclocking, the 3350P is still a high-end processor and could save you some money.

However, you said that you don't wish to overclock because it's risky. Overclocking is nowhere near as risky today as it used to be. It has also been made incredibly simple to do - with the i5 3570K you change one number in the BIOS and you can have a 20-25% overclock. I am currently running my i5 3570K on an ASRock Pro4 motherboard at 4.5GHz with hardly any tweaking at all. By going with the 3570K you will prolong your CPU's lifespan and save yourself money in the future.

So my recommendation is the 3350P + h77 motherboard OR the 3570K + z77 motherboard.


Who the hell says that overclocking adds to the lifespan of a cpu? Overclocking reduces the lifespan and also there is also the risk of heat when overclocking and your computer may burn if its overclocked too much because of heat and overclocking should never be done with the stock cooler as stock coolers are never good!


jordonc said:
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure that when Muttley89 said, "prolong your CPU's lifespan," he meant that it allows you to use the cpu longer before it becomes obsolete and having to upgrade, not necessarily that the cpu will last longer before failing.


What he meant was the K line of processors are of higher quality due to the intention of purchasing one (overclocking)
most likely intel have beefed up a few bits to cope with user error while changing the unlocked multiplier, a stock clocked K lasting longer than its counterpart under stressful conditions but stock speeds, hate to be the one to test that.

the point is, is the 3570k worth the extra $55? not to forget that i need more money for an z77 mobo!!


Problem is with either processor if you choose cheap cooling you may never even see the true speeds of either especially not when dirt or TIM thermal interference material (lol) builds up on tha cheap heatsink and fan your going to be lucky if your cpu does not get cut to nothing to compensate for the excess heat that is a big problem in both these cpu's (cheap tim and excessive silicone adhesive used, why we delid) even if you delid that cpu , your still going to see high temps, get cheaper cpu and better cpu cooler, other than that if you can stretch or wait, get great cooling delid the cpu and get the K cpu and google/ebay ic7 diamond to use while assembling, enjoy. ps either way get good cooling, deepcool make super silent rubber case fans, stock cpu coolers are not good for gaming.
