i5 3570k is the overclockable one. i5 3570 is the non overclockable version of it.
I don't think i5 3470 has an overclockable version.

The speed, bus/core ratio (?), and the ipg is better for the i5 3570. Other than that it's the same other than the price..,68316

Here is a compare chart from ark.^

The i5 3470 and 3570 are almost identical, like stated about just a little more edge on the 3470 if you get the 3570.
You have a H77 motherboard so a -K version (overclockable) Cpu is useless.
You wouldn't even see much if any difference in performance in gaming with either cpu. With your setup as of right now i would just pick up the 3470 and save the extra few dollars.
If you want to save up the extra 25-30dollars and but the 3570 thats not a bad option too!

Good luck on the rig

There wouldn't really be a point because you have an H77 board.

Any possibility of getting a Z77 one?
