  1. What are you going to be doing with this system? This for a gaming system than you really want to step down on the processor. The Intel® Core™ i7-3770K is a very nice processor if you are doing a lot of media creation work but since very few games can use more than 4 threads the hyper-threading on it has minimal value in a gaming system.

    Also there is only minimal performance gains for DDR 3 1866 over DDR 3 1600 so it really isnt worth the added cost.

    I would go with a PSU in the 500w to 600w unless you are planning on going with SLI or Xfire. I really like the SeaSonic M12II 620w which is only $80 at Newegg right now.

    Also before you overclock the processor you are going to want to pick up a good 3rd party HSF (heatsink/fan) to help deal with the increased temperatures you will experience if you do overclock.
  2. Yeah i plan on using the H100 from cool-master i thought about the i5 3570k just figured i would spend the extra money my current setup is the i5 3570k i have the GTX560 i think its just time for me to upgrade my card 0.o i have the H100 on my current setup. Here is my main prob, lets drop the current setup i have above.

    I have same case 750watt power supply and nice MSI motherboard Z77A G45 now i have the IVY bridge I5 3570k i can go to 4.4ghz and its fine, i go any above my computer just shuts down. Any suggestions on my overclock because none of the websites i visit give me a solid path to follow for voltage ext.

    Setup is for gaming, that's it.
