Thanks Kelly. I had to improvise, my MB doesn't give me enough voltage control so I figured out a way around it. That is strictly a benchmark, I will not run 24/7 on over 4.5 until I get another MB. I'm really happy with my chip so when I get a new MB and cooler...look out here I come

What did you decide to go with for the CPU cooler and motherboard?

I'm going ASUS on the MB and still wavering on the cooler, I think it will be the H100i but haven't verified it will fit in my case. I have the right fan slots up top but still need to check the clearance down towards the board. I want a sabertooth but am considering this MB ASUS P8Z77-M PRO LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard - Newegg.com as it's a little less expensive. What do you think of that MB?

That would be a good board Doug, does your case only accommodate mATX boards? If you'd like a Haswell system, Kelly pointed out to me the ASUS Gryphon is basically a mini Saber Tooth. Amazon.com: ASUS GRYPHON Z87 DDR3 1600 LGA 1150 Motherboard: Computers & Accessories It has no armor but it's sold separately for about $75, it's not really needed though.

My current board is a micro-atx. I like the room it leaves, but not the fact that I lost on a lot of options I need. From what I see that asus board does both.

It would work fine if you aren't using a bunch of pci express cards. But......it's gotten quite a few negative reviews on Newegg, which is a concern. For a dual rad setup, I'm really liking the Thermaltake 2.0 Extreme. It's usually on sale, and its 38mm thick, rather than 27mm thick like the Corsair H100/100i. I truly believe the 38mm thickness is optimum and will beat any thinner rad when using the same fans. I like to think of a 27mm rad as a 2-core automotive radiator, a 38mm would be a 3-core rad and 49/50mm would be a 4 core rad. I've found that unless you are running an extremely high performance race car(either a drag car or stock car) running a 4 core radiator will actually not cool as well as a good 3-core. It's all about efficiency. That's my opinion on it anyway.

I've seen the Z87 Gryphon for sale on Newegg for $169(regular price) and the thermal armor is free! That's a hell of a deal.
