  1. If you dont want to oc the i5-3570k will be a waste, just get the i5-3470 + h77 mobo and you dont need the hyper 212.

    Base your build like this :

  2. i want my pc for gaming purpose only.
    no heavy tasking.
    i want to make one time investment ,so that it runs atleast 5 years or so.
    i heard that 2500k is enough but 3570k is slightly ahead,so why not go for it.

    should i go for 3470??
    and do i need a cooler if i use a 3570k or the case just works fine?
    i dont want to damage any part of it.
  3. like you said for gaming purposes the money you save with the i5-3470 (you don't want to oc the i5-3570k) goes for a better gfx card and that's what counts 7850>>>6850.
    The stock cooler provides decent cooling just for the stock speeds which in your case will be enough.
  4. k you've convinced me for 3470 .
    and also for the gpu . Though money is no issue.
    now the mobo. should i go for a z77 or h77.
    which would be the best of all. what are the best options available leaving money apart
