Whats the performance ratio on between them and differences.

i5 2300 = sandybridge quad core, 2.8ghz, 3.1ghz w/turbo boost (no overclocking) - $180

i5 3550 = ivybridge quad core, 3.3 ghz, 3.7ghz w/turbo boost - (no overclocking) $210

i5 3570k = ivybridge quad core, 3.4ghz, unlocked multiplier (huge overclocking) - $240

the last two will perform about 20% faster than the i5 2300 at stock. this is due to higher clock speeds and a 7% better ipc. the 3570k can be overclocked by 30-40% (possibly more if you replace the thermal compound under the IHS) and that would pull away from the others in performance.

Why would you use the stock heatsink to overclock?

^ not the stock heatsink. Intel cheaped out on thermal compound under the IHS on the processor itself. that's why ivybridge overclocks worse than sandybridge.
