    yes the only difference is that a 2700k is clocked 100Mhz higher than a 2600k, also many of the 2700k are still using first batch silicon so should clock higher/lower voltages.


    Get this memory.

    The psu is pretty good but only rated to 35c, though workd just fine at higher temps according to johnnyGuru

    pick up the 2600k its much cheaper. I would recommend a corsair psu, and higher ram speed 1600 at least.
