Indeed the 600T is an amazing looking case but it's kinda pricie. Edit: NVM it is awsome I am getting the white edition!

Needing your help again guys! i5 2500k (SB) or i5 3570K (IB)
I read that Ivy is running hot and doesnt OC very well. But, I'm not planning to OC like crazy, I would oc at stock voltage so what do you think. I read that a 4.5GHz 3570K is equivalent of a 4.8GHz or so 2500K. But what about the temperatures. Or should I wait for ivy to be released and then buy 2500k because the price would drop? Or order everything before april 29th to get free shipping(50$Shipping)(Before release)? I'm confused!
Not sure about what clocks it can reach on stock voltage but heres food for thought. Ivy bridge at 4.8 purportedly runs at 90c on a corsair H100.... whereas sandybridge maxes at 70c i believe (I7 temps btw). So in my opinion again I say sandybridge with a z77 board
