I noticed that you own a H77 board.
According to Intel, " Intel H77 Express Chipset also enables overclocking features of unlocked 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processors."
So, I'm not sure if you can overclock your i5 2500k with it. IDK, maybe you can get a moderate overclock with the H77 board, for which a Hyper 212 Evo would be a good choice.

thanks for all the help! I looked into the corsair fan, but I was a bit scared because of a lot of somewhat negative feedback (like cases of DOA or messed up fans where you can't change the RPM etc).

@bartholomew Even with a second gen processor I should still be able to get a decent overclock with a H77 board right? If not, then maybe i'd just go with a hyper 212. i dunno

Most probably, you won't be able to OC your SB CPU with an H77 board.
You can check if your multiplier is unlocked in your BIOS.

ah alright, well good thing i was still just working on a build and haven't bought all the parts yet (phew). so I switched some things around, mostly just the chip and the mobo. also newegg is giving me a free chipset fan for whatever reason, so i guess the actual question now is, will said CPU cooler fit with this new build

mobo:ASUS P8Z77-V LK
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

cpu: Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

fan: same as above

case: same as above

chipset fan: Scythe SY124010L 40mm

BTW: i'm also kind of a newb when it comes to building so i have absolutely no idea what a unique chipset fan is good for....

The ASRock Z77 Extreme4 would be a better choice

And yes, the said CPU cooler will fit.
