Intel i5 4670 or 4570S for mini ITX build

Like the topic states, I am making a mini ITX build in the Cooler Master Elite 130 case. I plan on using stock coolers, so would it be better to get the 4570S that produces less heat, or go with the more powerful 4670 (non overclock version)?

  1. Listen to this, then decide:

    Also, the "S" CPU I believe is for laptops...

    Go for the 4670. More powerful and isn't that much more.

    @space55 the S basically is a lower power version of the CPU which in turn generates less heat. That's putting it simply. I always steer people away from these if they want performance.
  3. Agreed.
    I'd go for the 4670K, but of course, I render while recording while uploading...
  4. Thanks for the answers! I think I'll go with the 4670 while it's $205 right now, since I don't plan on overclocking the system.
  5. @space55 Well if you're not OCing then the 4670 is just fine, but for what you do (and I used to) the 4670K oc'd can help a bit.

    @ishumbisho That is a GREAT price for the 4670! Snatch that up while you can.
