Hey guys My name is Dandoil and I was wondering if I got a i5 3570k what i could overclock the CPU to with using air.

Depends on the cooler, motherboard, general room temperature, case airflow, etc.

We'll need more info.

The CPU is arguably the best considering value and heat output. (The i5-4670K is almost identical but likely costs more, and the FX-8350 is similar/cheaper? but produces a LOT of heat. While future games may benefit from the FX-8350 the fact that 98% run better on the i5-3570K and the heat output make me recommend the i5-3570K.

The CPU at stock settings will hit 3.9GHz on Turbo. With a modest cooler you can hit 4.2GHz. With a good cooler you can hit 4.5GHz reliably but you need to read tweaking guides and can easily crash if settings and cooling aren't just right.

There's very little advantage to going above 4.2GHz for gaming anyway for most games (it also depends on your graphics card).

*One good motherboard of excellent value is the Asus P8Z77-V LK.

Actually, AMD processors produce less heat; intel proccies just have a higher thermal envelope. Emphasis on intel CPU's being around 80C @ load with the stock cooler, and AMD CPU's 55-60.

they also have totally different stock coolers and different thermal throttling. the intel cpu's produce less heat. more wattage = more heat and amd is way ahead on wattage. The temperature a cpu is running at has nothing to do with the heat its producing. you can have 2 identical cpu's with different heatsinks and they will both run at different temps, but they are both producing the same amount of heat. Apart from that the i5 3570k is a great cpu for gaming, and good price/performance, especially when overclocked. the amd 8350 is cheaper, it also performs significantly worse in many titles, slightly worse in others, and about on par in some, depending on game and game settings.

AMD processors do produce far more heat if you compare apples to apples. It's pretty much common knowledge. If you compare an overclocked FX-8350 to an overclocked i5-3570K you can easily get 100WATTS more draw by using the FX-8350. That's a huge difference.

Actually amd and intel place there thermal sensors in different positions. In reality an fx 8350 at 70C is like having a 3570K at 100C

Hmm...
If true, it's probably to hide the fact that their chips consume so much more power and thus would be a HIGHER TEMPERATURE if the sensor was closer to the core.
