CPU Recommendation?

Should I get an AMD 9370, i7 4771 or an i7 4770K? Assuming they all cost the same amount which is better. Please note the 9370 would be running with the stock AMD water cooler while either Intel CPU would be with the stock Fan at least for a little while. Don't really intend on overclocking.

4770K /endtopic

Avoid the AMD 9370 like the plague. It's an overheated power hungry mess.

Would the 4771 be better because I'm not overclocking?

Stock i5 is plenty for a standard set-up.
