Why do you 'need to do 5ghz'? What is the immediate rush that you can't take some time to research?

LMAO! Sorry but that reason is hilarious :D .
I'd do some research as rubix suggested. I haven't seen a stable clock for a 3570k over 4.8 (haven't looked as much as im sure rubix and other oc'rs have)
I'd imagine to even reach 5.0 your going to need a sick watercooling system and even with that im not sure you could get it.

I would highly suggest reading through the watercooling sticky which also contains the closed loop cooler section as well as reading through the i5/i7 CPU overclocking guides. It isn't really as simple as pushing the 'overclock' button in the BIOS, you have to make certain you know what you are doing to get to those speeds. You also need to understand the amount of heat being generated by an Ivy Bridge CPU and the voltages needed to remain stable at certain points. You also should understand what voltages you should keep in mind as going over them can degrade the longevity of your chip.

I'm thinking you didn't consider of all those things.

NO that’s y I’m here for answers like that I’m very new at Overclocking I’m upgrading from an Intel Q8400 Quad to an i5. So if I gave you $1300(R10000) what would you build for me?

I don't know what you have built, so I really can't comment on your system. Are you meaning $1300 US?

I think you should really do yourself a favor and read as much information on how to accomplish your overclocks so that you understand what it will take. Not every system requires exactly the same settings to be stable at a specific speed. All hardware is NOT made equal and does not respond the same to overclocking and the extra demands.

And, you also have to remember that not everyone wants to overclock- I enjoy it, but I much more enjoy stability in my system for what I use it for. It also depends WHY you want to overclock and what applications you will be running. Some will argue that you should overclock because you can, and that is fine. But, I would challenge you to tell me the benefits and downfalls for overclocking your system based on your intended use and applications you normally use.

seems Rubix has this thread under control. BTW, building a system just to show off and silence a friend is really hilarious. Wonder what you'll do if he bought a moped :D  ?

this isn't the build-me-a-desktop section. So this thread will be bumped around until its closed :)

Just finding a 'liquid cooler' to drop on your CPU doesn't automatically mean you can hit a magical overclock number (5ghz in this case). Careful planning on motherboard, processor, BIOS settings and learning to overclock are necessary to determine what kind of cooling you are going to need.

This isn't as simple as putting the CPU in the socket, dropping on a mediocre-performing closed loop cooler and pushing the turbo button to automatically allow you to brag to friends. It takes some research, reading and learning to get to where you want to go.

This society of instant gratification and patting yourself on the back for something that isn't done right isn't a good path to go down.
