    Some will tell you to go Ivy because of the more consistent overclocks. Some will tell you to go Haswell because it is newer and the socket will be used for broadwell CPU's (you're mobo will last 2 generations). At the end of the day it comes down to what you want, overclocking or longevity and future upgradability. I personally love my 4670k and it overclocks just fine!

    Can you please post your system build. How far have you overclocked your 4670k. Is the heating problem really that bad?

  4. They will perform the same with a 7970, so you decide. Hell, you could even buy a 2500k + Z68 and it'd game the same as your choices. So, is an extra $25 gonna make you feel better or would you rather spend that on fans or and improved cas?
