Hey everyone, I am in the process of purchasing a CPU for my first build. Im definitely interested into the idea of overclocking. But I am a bit nervous to do it for the first time. I have the Asus p8z77-VLK motherboard and was thinking I would use Asus's TurboV evo program as a safe place to start becuase it is automated by the program itself. The three CPU's im looking at are the i5 3570k, i7 3770, and i7 3770k. I know the k is unlocked and easily overclocked. My questions are, can I get a decent overclock off of the 3770 non k even though some of it is locked; and how much better would a k series be able to be overclocked? Or will the software not allow it because it is not the k version? The only reason I am asking is the non k is about 35 dollars cheaper and I am not looking to do any extreme overclcoking. Probably only take it up to 4.2 ghz or so.
Also, one last question. Will the Corsair H80 be sufficiant for overclocking? I am thinking I wont easily have any room for the H100 in the case that I have.
