Yeah, they're compatible. Have you looked at HD7850s? What about Ivy 3570K?

Cool, can you tell me what I have to look out for for compatibility?

Sure I'll change that.
I've heard Ivy Bridge OCs alot hotter though :/

For compatibility just make sure your motherboard and CPU share the same socket, the RAM is of the correct type and the PSU is sufficient. It's not electrophysics :lol:

You missed out on the full story mate. IB is only hotter past a certain OC. Anything above 4.2 GHz on IB is a waste anyway and at 4.2 GHz, they are not hotter.

oh ok. Would the Hyper 212 EVO be enough to keep it cool at those frequencies mentioned?
