As for the rendering and stuff I am a dunce but if I were up for the money I would go with Solar and stick with the i7 Ivy B.

For RAM try the G Skill forum Tradesman is really good at advising what to configure it with once you have chosen the board of course. Welcome to the G.SKILL TECH FORUM
Thanks, but I don't need help with RAM.
No probs mate you're probably better off with the other members advice anyway

S, one gonna choose i5 4670K vs i5 3570K only by its specs the day he will bought that proc, more for rendering videos than overclocking if got a Z87 board and can't afford i7 4770K, one that seems blowing charts well.

Better have good performances components along the i5 4670K.

PS: didn't answered the poll, as it will be some few years now for me to upgrade (Proc specs might change?)

I have 4670k and I think it's doing well for now but as you mentioned that you'll be doing recording games, rendering and stuff I would vote for 4770k as its more powerful and has hyper threading which creates 4 virtual cores and make 8 threads and has bigger cache. If you don't mind spending the extra 80 bucks then go for 4770k if not the 4670k is bang for buck cpu

For most of this discussion, I agree with Kbrady. I would go with the i7, but the 3770K and not the 4770K. As far as your encoding question, I have just encoded 300 DVD movies with the 3770K, but without quicksink. I used Handbrake, which is probably a better stabilty test than Prime95. Of course, different movies took different times, but on average I would say 17-18 minutes.

I do differ with Kelly on fans though. I do agree that 80mm fans have no place in a modern computer, but I tend to want larger 200mm fans. I have them that put out 110 CFM and turn 800 RPMs. Almost dead silent and a lot of air. But, certainly no smaller than 120/140mm fans. I also like Kelly's build he made. A great rig and will serve you well for quite some time to come. But, there is no such thing as future proofing. Whatever you buy will be 'last years technology' in less than 6 months.

I like my 200mm fan up top too....it runs at 530rpm and can float a piece of printer paper lol. It's just 200mm won't fit in a case unless there is a spot specifically for it. I just meant that the days of 80/92mm fans are behind us and the bigger you can go, the less noise it will make.

Looking at your link to your saved list and i think your making a big mistake if you dont get an SSD for that rig
I would agree with Kelly the Samsung 840 series is where its at, but TBH any SSD is going to be a massive improvement over a spinner
