Hello! I have a question about what is difference of the "unlocked" 3570k and the regular 3570k, I know this question may sound n00bish but this has been a "pimple" in my thoughts.

Another question as well, I need a suggestion on which fan would perform well with the Cooler Master 212 EVO from either Noctua or Deep Cool brands.

Thank you in Advance

Well any cpu from intel with a 'k' at the end of its name has an unlocked multiplier, meaning it can be easily overclocked.
I am not familiar with performance fan lineups, but if you are blowing into a heat sink you want high static pressure, as the fins cause resistance and make it harder for the fan to blow through.

So its basically a regular 3570k but much more simpler to overclock?
