There's no point in getting a i5-3570K since you can't overclock on a B75-chipset motherboard to begin with. I'd like to know why you have 6 GB of RAM, as that's an unusual number. You're really supposed to have 2 identical sticks of RAM in a board, not a 4GB + 2GB configuration... Share ThomasMaltby January 20, 2013 12:42:04 AM svengeguttensen said:Sounds good to me.
