  1. Best answer
    if you dont overclock, assuming the heatsink and thermal paste are applied properly, you shouldnt have to worry about temps at all. if you overclock just use a program such as coretemp, hwmonitor, etc to monitor your cpu temp. if it gets too high, tone the overclock back a little.

    That is a very good cooler, and should get you at least a mild overclock without temp worries
  2. I'm starting to think if I should just go with an Intel Core i5 4670K ... i7 doesnt seem all thats cracked up to be for gaming.
  3. for gaming, no, its not worth the extra money.
  4. it seems the Intel Core i5 3570K Quad Core IvyBridge is even better for high end gaming.Can anyone confirm?
  5. its not "better" really, the 3570k will overclock more with less heat, but the haswell (4670k) is more efficient.

    That being said, some people are saying its a better value because it performs so close to the 4670k while costing less. either one will be great for gaming.
