Hey guys! im about to put together a new build ! but the only thing i havent gotten yet is the cpu. Im deciding between the 2700k,3770k,2600k, I game AND Edit and render videos alot>Also i WILL OVER CLOCK! Also i was going to get the 3770k but its the most expensive.I can get it but only if its the very best of the 3 by a large margin

My build is
Heatsink:Hyper 212 evo pushpull setup
Mobo:Asus p8z77-LK
Ram: 8 GB corsair vengeance
Gpu:Gigabyte Gtx 670 Windforce edition
Psu: 750 watt psu
SSD: Crucial M4 128 gb
HDD: 2x 1TB Seagate Barracuda
Case: antec p280
OS: Win 64

More about : 3770k 2700k 2600k

What prices are you looking at?

Since you put value into the equation, I would consider the 2600K.
It will oc to about the same levels as the 2700K.
For normal oc levels, I think the 3770K will be perhaps 5% more efficient on a clock for clock basis.
But, that does not seem that much to me.

And... if you will be using 64 bit enabled apps, like for editing, then get 16gb(2 x8gb) of ram.

I'd get the 2600K and a better motherboard.

If your thionking of getting the 3770k and overclocking is to be done then you may want to read this article.

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/ivy-bridge-overcloc...

Based on that article the better choices are between the 2600k and 2700k , there is a $20 difference between the two and a 100mhz difference so if 100mhz is worth $20 then the 2700k is the choice if not then the 2600k is the choice.

Hmm alright it seems that the ivy bridge Cant over clock as well on air cooled heatsinks.

ASUS P8Z77-V LE PLUS LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
$169.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The Asus P8Z77-LK motherboard is not good for overclocking as it only has a four phase power design and the P8Z77-V Le plus has an eight phase power design.

Ram is cheap.

Ram is sold in kits for a reason.
Ram from the same vendor and part number can be made up of differing manufacturing components over time.
Some motherboards can be very sensitive to this.
That is why ram vendors will not support ram that is not bought in one kit.
Although, I think the problem has lessened with the newer Intel chipsets. Still,
it is safer to get what you need in one kit.

Get a different board. That board doesn't have enough for you to pay $170.

In order to get the best overclocking results from the Intel® Core™ i7-3770K and Intel Core i5-3570K you are going to have to look at a very robust cooling solution. I have the Corsair H100 and I would like something more.

Maybe some liquid nitrogen?

The H100 isn't a robust cooling solution, its more like a 'here is your wanna be water cooler merit badge'. An overclocked 2600k will out perform the 3770k because you can overclock it higher.

Quote:
With all things considered, despite its limited overclocking potential, Core i7-3770K is only slightly slower than the 32 nm Core i7-2600K with both CPUs pushed as far as they can go. In practice, the difference isn't noticeably, though.

Just go with one of the sandy bridge chips.The 2600K is pretty cheap but if you've got the money the 2700K might be the better choice.The only difference between the two is that the 2700K is binned higer.

The 2600k and 2700k chips are identical a 2600k or 2700k will both overclock the same.
Now since you are getting a z77 board I would go ivy bridge 3770k or 3570k i think that is the only way you will get the full PCI-e 3.0 bandwidth from whatever MB you get....if you use a sandy 26-700k i beliave it will be PCI-e 2.0 only. Not that running any current video card will over saturate PCI-e 2.0 @8x bandwidth.

I know this is a old post but what did you deside to get?
Also tjhe ivy cpu IHS can be removed and liquid metal can be used to transfer the heat from tha cpu die itself to the IHS since intel purposly did not solder the IHS to the cpu die like on the sandy bridge chips....they used crappy TIM grease instead of soldering. I believe they did it so they could sell more sandy bridge E cpus. Using the liquid metal TIM lowers temps 15-25c over the crap grease they use!
