    I'm looking to buy an Intel Core i5 3570k/3770k for around $160-200, I want a decent overclocker (atleast 4Ghz with lowish voltage). I really don't need the cooler, just the chip. I would prefer to get it from inside Canada so the shipping isnt too much, but I'm fine with buying from America.

    Almost 95% of the SB chips I have seen will do 4Ghz on stock voltage so the IB should be a cake walk.

    He may want to look for a 2500K which I have see for around 150$ used. Clocks similar and close in performance

    I'd rather get a 3570k and do it right rather than finding out its not enough for me and needing to upgrade again after a few months(done that like 30 times)

    A 2500K should be enough for anyone. Its theoretically only 200Mhz slower than 3750K clock for clock.

    As always... 3570K are available from microcenter for 189.99+tax new (201.39). First class makes shipping to canada easy and extremely inexpensive less than $12 for just a CPU with no cooler. 2500K are 159.99+tax (169.59). I've shipped them before, I'd do it again for a fellow TPUer

    I just want to see if I can get it any cheaper than that, no harm in looking right? :3
