i7 4770K vs i5 4670K gaming AND recording AND video editing

i know the thread already exists, but I don't know what haswell is and if multi-threading is useful to me.
I am building a new high end computer of my own with a GTX-780 Ti
i will use this computer for gaming and recording as well as video editing and rendering.
which of the 2 is worth the most? does hyper-threading slow down gaming performances while recording or make it faster?
i also want my computer to be silent for recording so i don't think it is good to have a very hot CPU, even though with water cooling.
thank you in advance

EDIT: what about the xeon 1230v3 which, as i read is an i7 without integrated graphics?

  1. What games do you going to play? And i think you can go with a i5 4670K but if you wants some more power and if you dont have a budget so go with the 4770K.
  2. 4670: good for gaming all you need for that
    4770: has multithreading which allows the CPU do address two threads per core. Provides up to approx 30% performance gains in applications that are highly multithreaded ones such as video editing and rendering

    Haswell: new core generation from intel refers to the codename of the current(2014) generation of CPU's
    The heat you were talking about is the fact that haswell is rather poor at dissipating heat and builds it up preventing super high overclocks. however even with that it is still capable of outpfreforming previous generations at higher overclocks.
  3. The Core i7 will be faster mainly when you're rendering, video editing, and perhaps while recording gameplay (unless you're using Shadowplay).

    Water cooling is not going to make your computer quieter; at the same price, air cooling is quieter.

    As for as rendering and editing,recording etc . you will need i7 4770k . It is much better than i5 .Hyper threading will help you do more tasks than i5 .
    In Gaming both are same . Both will run every game pretty much same .

    Haswell chips run pretty hot so it does need an aftermarket cooler .
    If you are going to OC get H100i or Noctua HD-D14 [ is quiet ] or NZXT Kraklin x60
    IF no OC get Hyper Evo 212 or NH D14

    * If your are strictly gaming and no rendering get i5 4670k
    *Rendering , editing get i7 .

    Hope that helps :D !!
    If you have any other questions ask me :)
