The 3570K can still be overclocked a bunch with decent cooling, just like Sandy Bridge. I have a guide to OC'ing Ivy Bridge/Z77 and it is really helpful. If you want me to send it to you, just pm me

That looks nice! For that price range, I would look into a closed loop water cooling system. Easy to use, fabulous cooling and in a small package. I'm so glad I went with one for my build. Whisper quiet, and isn't a big unit hanging off the cpu socket. Also don't have to worry about it being close to the RAM slots. Either way the result is the same, a cool CPU. If the water cooling system interests you, I could point out some that work really good.

Very nice Air Cooler there. The rated full temps (58) & noise (48dBA) are looking great on a pushed LGA 1155 Sandy Bridge 2500K...could be the same with Ivy or less temps.

I'll go Air cooling if you plan overclocking a little, with low profile 1600Mhz CL8 or above Ram memory.

PS: I found mounting Ram low profile are 38mm high on my Asus Mb and my Cpu cooler dual-fan and when mounted , is 42mm high and hide one slot of four.

This Deepcool gonna hide at least 3 slots....on your Asus z77

Ok KB fire away my supplier does a few and only Antecs Corsairs Intel (1 but it does state it suits the extremes -i7's) and Thermaltake brands. But if necessary I could go elsewhere.

Now I have had a look at some and the ones that I find are quite impressive - remembering I have never used liquid before areCorsair Hydro Series H70 Core CPU Cooler [CWCH70-CORE] - $89.00 : PC Case Gear

Intel RTS2011LC Liquid Cooling System [BXRTS2011LC] - $85.00 : PC Case Gear and the price is about what I would have paid for the Deepcool.

Thanks Non for that ref to the Asus boards - so much more info than the usual stuff
As for cooling well cannot make up my mind yet.

Those Liquid Cooling System are well reputed and look very nice in a windowed case, but i found heat-up more than Air cooling and are less reliable in time. I can understand you, if it gonna be a machine to keep for a long time.

Perhaps go Air cooling before and in a few years those liquid kit will be as efficient as air cooling.

The Corsair is good, I think there is a Thermaltake Pro that has got good reviews, and the Intel I can personally tell you is good. Low temps, can handle a buttload of OC'ing and you can't hear it at all. The best closed looped cpu coolers have the thicker radiator. If you ever see a unit that has a thinner radiator(25mm) it is usually a value oriented one. The good water coolers have a radiator between 45-50 mm. The Intel one just comes with 1 fan and honestly, I don't know that I would see a difference in my temps if got 2 and had a push/pull setup. I have mine set up to pull colder air from outside the case and blow it across the cooling fins rather than blow hot air from the case across the cooling fins, and because of that, the fan has been turned around and the blue led doesn't light up the interior of the case.........something to keep in mind if you care about that.

Here is a pic of it installed..........

In reference to them getting hot.......if you mean the pump(the part on the cpu) mine is cool to the touch 99% of the time. After I read that, I was curious and had to check for myself lol. The only bad thing I've read about the higher quality kits are some are hard to install. The Intel was not hard, just takes some patience and a 2nd set of hands would not be a bad idea.

Unusual mounted liquid cooler but i suppose it could be a good alternate solution for extracting & cool.

Does the exterior mesh doesn't block that too much air?

That is how closed loop water cooling kits are suppose to be mounted...this way, or with the hoses at the bottom of the radiator....either way is fine.

What exterior mesh are you talking about? The case chassis?

Mine cools very well, while it's idling, it runs anywhere from 20-25*C and while using Aida64 to stress test it, it gets to about 50-52*C. That is with a 20% overclock!
