  1. Better get a i5-3570k... Its overall better
    A 500w is enough for your build... So it would be no problem to downgrade the psu
  2. ok i going with the tx650w and i keep hearing that the i5 3570k gets very hot as its ivy bridge and i heared sandy bridge is colder and between the two its said to give only a few more Fps :L
  3. Then just get a good cpu cooler :)
  4. With the evo you can get ac3570k to 4.1 with NO increase in noise and 4.4 with a little increase in audible fan speed.


    I stay below 65C under prime95, less under occt. When they say ib runs hot they're talking above 4.5 or so.
  5. oh ok cool i get the i5 3570k then :D
