You should add a couple of example pics of the parts to each section and ask for this thread to be cleaned and stickied.

For more in depth explanations, just chuck in a couple of links
Thanx,but I did add links, to only the stuff I see as important, the thread is allready a sticky. And This is just A basic guide, the idea was for everyoe that reads it to just get the general idea,if they want to know more I added at the bottom that anyone can reply and ask any quistions,and I will answer as best I can. I don't wan't to add pictures,then the guide will be over posted,and it will loose it's short andd sweetness

Yes, Patrick, everyday usage is no problem, it's only the stress testing. But, if you are going to OC, you have to do the stress testing. I'm only at 4.5 and hitting 85. I played BF3 last night and only got to 53, which is no higher than the 2500K or 2600K. But, I wanted to be up in your neck of the woods. The CPU has more in it, but the cooler does not. The difference in 4.2 prime and 4.5 is 20C. So, 4.8 is out of the question. And I know part of the problem is living in Florida, but that's just life. And Summer isn't even here yet. Besides, I've already spent more on coolers than the XSPC will cost.

True. But 85 is nice and cool compared to the 95c+ I hit, lol. Thermal protection FTW

Yeah, it's heat and not volts that are these chips limits. 4.7ghz will add some more heat, but as long you don't 'overstress it' - the chip will handle the high stress temps while you dial it in.

I'm in the middle of winter, so come my summer - watercooling may definitely be back on the cards. And I'll need a new case. This Lian Li is not really big Rad friendly.

If worse comes to worse - I've always got a great 2500K sitting here as a replacement

That it is

If I end WCing (which has been on the cards since my 775 rig ), I'll be looking at separate CPU/GPU water loops.

Haha,no worries.

And my plan was to do separate WC and decided to start with the gpu's first,the WC on them are more expencive,after this I would have done the CPU, and may still do it, but Will need to think of a new way of wc ing it,not enough space. This is what I planned: It starts with the same reservoir and pump+pumptop I have allready installed,then down into the lower part of my chassis into a 240 rad,thenback up to the cpu,from the cpu to the second rad,but this is just a small 120 rad,then back into reservoir. I believe it will work well,and to me I think it will look pretty awesome, but still just thinking about it. Here is a pic of my rig with it in,done in paint. DO NOT make fun of my drawing

I agree, but I think tubing would look better.

Hey guys since we are talking Watercooling I feel My numbers aren't what they should be for my current set up

At the time i was running same set up as this same cooler but now ......this is not the original board it all was installed on it is the same but not the original RMA

The Cpu same thing I had a issue with a bent pin bought a new one and returned the other now the problem is the temps Using Antec Khuler 620 push pull

Originaly my temps would be 16c to 38c max load @ 4.5ghz

now my temps are hitting 50c even in the Bios hitting 61c max temp for cpu but the temp throttles up and down I went and used Antec 7 nano diamond compound spread even no need to cure anyway now 3 hours later after i shut down my temps are right here in the first snip second was temps from earlier

Now I want to know if i switched from the fans i have now coolermaster /antec push pull on radiator Micro Center - Scythe Ultra Kaze 120mm 3,000RPM Case Fan DFS123812H-3000 think a pair of these would give it a much needed kick?

Heads up I installed Kaze Jyuni scythe Fans and big time change which i am happy to report

The stock fan from the waterblock and coolermaster fan did no justice but these puppies got me with no worries now

stable temps now max temps after burning a movie were 37c then droped back down to 16c
