I know the i5 3570k is obviously better compared to the 2500k when both at stock but, I will be slightly overclocking.
And i know that the 3570k has higher temps when OCing but will it still be better then the 2500k at say 0.5Ghz difference?
I will be using a Thermaltake Frio cpu cooler and arctic silver 5 thermal compound on a z77 Sabertooth mobo.
Rig used mainly for gaming (Will be using EVGA GTX 670 FTW so will not be using onboard graphics)
Yeah go Ivy Bridge. I moved from an i5 2500K to the 3570K and to be honest I did not notice a difference in day to day use but I did notice a gain in video encoding. I also slightly overclocked my 3570K to around 4 ghz (corsair H100 water cooler) with no temp gains. Also, Do not forget the 3570K enables PCIe 3.0 for your Geforce 670 (which I have one of those as well).
