people have told me 8 cores will benifit me more, but on the other hand, some say it is slower despite more power, and not as good for gaming. ill settle for my 3770k abd my sabertooth

The current need for 8 cores is extremely limited. It will be a while before anything will actually need 8 cores. 4 is plenty for most people.

no im curiouse if anyone knows anything about nh-d14s, becsause im not sure if this is a problem i need to address or if it is just the internal fan controller
1 fan should be at 1300rpm i believe, the other at 1200rpm, yet speed fan is stating that one of them is going 112rpm and the other at 4066rpm. and in both speed fan and overdrive, i have no ability to manually change the fan speed. both push, and pull fans are connected into either the cpu fan input or the Opt. fan input, and OD and SF are both registering them as CPU fans. if anyone knows what the problem is

pretey evenly between 3d designing and gaming, i know that sounds like a bad mixture, but they really are not that far off. and since i will contract personally with it, whats on it really wont matter as much as if it where a laptop i where to be bringing to meetings. but more TIME gameing, more USE in 3d designing if that makes any sense.

Regarding max CPU temp, this is the first time I have seen Intel's site not list the recommended max temp, strange.

Intel® Core™ i7-3770K Processor

For a general reference, until they publish something, The 2700k is TCASE 72.6°C, so add 5° for CPU Core temp ~ 77.6°C.

so if that where "running cool" than it would be closer to AMDs recomended 55c

Intel CPUs run hotter than AMD.
You should get lower than 55°C at stock settings. If you overclock then it will get hotter, with EIST (same as coolnquiet) it will run at lower voltage/frequency when not running demanding programs. When rendering or gaming it will run at higher voltage/frequency and it will be hotter.

Mine runs at 55°C at 3.84GHz with Prime95, the 3770k should run above 4GHz at 60-65°C, which is a good temp for Intel CPU.
The previous OC'ers link I posted should have some examples.

Compare that to my quad core AMD 965 3.4 running easily OC'd at 4.1 and this morning after two hours at 65f ambient my cores are idle and happy at 32c.
