Hey guys. I've looking to build my first system soon and can't decide on only one thing, Sandy Bridge or Ivy Bridge. I'm looking at the 2600/2700k and the 3770k. I wanted to oc to 5.0ghz, and since the the 3770k starts spiking in temp after you go past around 4.4/4.5ghz, and i don't NEED the hd 4000 graphics and native USB 3.0, I continue leaning towards the SB. I know an IB at 4.4ghz is equivalent to a SB at around 4.6ghz, but again i want to push it to 5.0ghz (maybe more if possible in the future :D ). So should I settle with IB at 4.5ghz or go with SB at 5.0ghz? And i will be running on Z77 with both btw. Thanks everyone!

I would rather have an IB at 4.5 than a SB at 5.0.

So technically the core speed of a SB at 5.0 is faster than an IB at 4.5? One more thing. Say i have a 750w psu and thats the perfect amount for my system PRIOR to oc'ing running at a SB 2700k's stock speed. ABOUT what size psu will i need to run stable at 5.2ghz? And thanks for that article. Even though it didnt have SB in it, it gave me some useful info :) .

But wouldn't an oc'd cpu use more power?

Oh ok. But i just used 750w as an example lol. I was just trying to ask how much of an increase power consumption would be.
