More about gaming build
  1. Drop RAM down to 1600mhz and has 1.5V

    Since you not gonna OC switch your MoBo to an H77, also take out your cooler (if accidently ment to "K" series CPU than reduce MoBo to an ASRock Extreme4)

    If you are gonna do light to mild OC switch the cooler to a Hyper 212 Evo
  2. What do you mean by OP switch? Bit confused on your motherboard info, cheers for the reply.
  3. You have a 3570 non"K" type which cant OverClock, Z77 is a motherboard used for people that are going to OC their CPU. If you plan to do this than make sure you got "K" when purchasing your original MoBo
