If you are overclocking and don't need pci-e 3.0 (don't plan on running 4 way graphics card on z77 is probably the only way u might find a use for this nowadays anyways), the 2500k>3570k due to higher overclock limit and lower temps. yes clock for clock ivy does very so slightly better than sandy but imo thats negligable when its doing so with over 20-30C more at same speeds. Also good luck getting an ivy to 5ghz which is quite common for SB chips.
