Hey Guys. The 3570k is only $5 cheaper than the 4670k. I want the best cpu for overclocking at this excellent price range. I don't care about the features of the Z87 over the Z77 like more sata and usb ports. I do care about temps, if the 4670k has higher temps, I wanna know.
If the 3570k is better I want proof or reliable experiences vice-versa . I'm going to be using the hyper 212+ for the fan and the UD3H motherboard. What do you guys suggest?

For someone interested in buying a cpu these days.Core i5 3570K and Core i5-4670K For those who know me and have me do their builds, you’ll know that those really are currently just about the best processors you can get for the money today. With plenty of performance, top notch overclocking capability and enough horsepower to run any game you throw at it, the choice is a no brainer.You would not need to upgrade either of those for many years to come bud.As far as which is better i honestly could not say for sure so wait for more replies with valid trustworthy respected links for you.But basically The Core i5-4670K, based off the Haswell architecture, replaces the last generation Ivy Bridge based Core i5-3570K, which was among the top processors for gaming from both a value and performance standpoint. With the Core i5-4670K, this story hasn’t changed.

Despite Intel focusing on power efficiency with the new Haswell processors, the new Core i5-4670K is once again a performer, sporting the same 3.4 GHz clock speed with the ability to turbo up to 3.8GHz as the last generation Core i5-3570K. That said, despite the Core i5-4670K receiving identical clock speeds as its last generation counterpart, it’s still able to pull of up to a 10-20% performance improvement depending on the workload.

In addition, as long as you make sure to get ’ K series processor, which has a factory unlocked multiplier to allow for easy overclocking as well. Since Haswell’s overclocking ability is relatively similar to what we saw in last generation Ivy Bridge parts, a mild overclock of up to 4.0-4.6 GHz (~15-25%+ performance improvement) is easily achievable with proper cooling.Annyway,hope this helps good luck!

The 4670K in every aspect. On average a 3570K would need to be clocked 400mhz higher to match a 4670K.

Yeah... anyway have a look at this, i5 3570k outperforms the 4670k when overclocked 200Mhz above.

Don't be fooled by those saying the 3570K outperforms the 4670K when overclocked. In numbers, this may be true but Haswell runs more efficiently at lower clock speeds. Meaning a 4670K @ 4 GHz will run at a similar power efficiency to a 3570K @ 3.8Ghz.

You can compare the two on Intel's site here: http://ark.intel.com/compare/65520,75048

You've just proved yourself wrong in your own link...
77W vs 84W, the 4670k is worse for efficiency, it will be basically the reverse of what you stated.

You are confusing power efficiency with power consumption. As I stated, Haswell, using the same 77w as Ivy Bridge, will be more powerful than Ivy Bridge. Haswell however can use up to 84w taking it that much further than Ivy Bridge can. You are forgetting that Haswell has a voltage regulator therefore, can regulate the amount of power it needs for a given task.

As Extreme Tech points out, "The end result is an overall reduction in system power (~20%), comparable idle CPU/GPU power, but a sizable increase in load power consumption (~10%)."

3rd gen intel processors have a better overclocking reputation. 3570k all the way.

It is hit or miss depending on the game and you're talking a difference of one or two frames. You need to also take into acount MOBO features available on z87 that aren't available on z77.
