  1. for less overclocking i'd go with 3570k.. 3570k has more powerful overclocking potential 4ghz = 4.5ghz of 2500k

    Sorry you mean the 2500k has more oc potential as it cools better?? Or do you mean to get a 3570 to act as a 2500 at 4.5ghz i would only need to clock it too 4.0ghz??

    Regards
  3. oh yeah, sorry i wrote it mistakenly, sure 3570k 4.0ghz act as a 4.5ghz or 4.4ghz 2500k.
