Any thoughts or suggestions are appreciated.
Thanks

Your def on the right route!!!
Id def get the ek cpu block
Depending on fans If you get the lower rpm fans you might have to add another 120 rad to the mix for cpu/gpu. that also would depend on ambiemts/oc/voltage.The 1850 gt's are really good i hear.
If you dont mind the sound of fans 2000 rpm gt's fans produce amazing results lol. I went for a mix of 2000 rpm and 1000 rpm its pretty quiet.

i have a modded 0902 bios (w/ orom 11.5.0.1111) if anyone is interested. i know some w/sandforce ssds are finding the 11 iterations of orom more palatable.

First time here, but gotta say great informational thread! I used Rhialto's 3 easy step OC method to 4.6Ghz. I have an i5 2500k paired with Corsair Vengeance Blu 1600Mhz.

At first I was at vcore 1.350 (showed 1.352) and my temps were max 83'C in RealTemp testing with $ilent's Overclocking Tips (Prime95). I usually idle at 42'C and I am using an Artic Cooling MX-4 on a CoolerMaster Hyper 212 Plus (1 Fan, but will add another for push \ pull). I did notice that core 2 and 3 get higher temps than 1 and 4 for some odd reason, is that normal? Anyways, I bumped down the vcore to 1.305 (shows 1.304) and re-ran the Prime95 tests and still passed while my temps maxed out at 77'C (still think they are high). I have seen people with OC stay at about 1.3 volts, should I try lower? Thanks

Rhialto will probably reply (to clarify/confirm/deny/correct), but if I understand correctly, when using his three-step overclocking instructions, the overclock is only for when it is needed and it idles normally and at a lower temp, etc. when not under load. I.E., there is no need to "set" the vcore at a specific level since it changes as needed due to the X.M.P. setting in the three-step overclock process. Do I have this right, Rhialto?

Thanks LAKF, but it looks like all the AP-15's (1850 rpm) are sold out along with most of the other GT's. That last site mentioned an expected delivery in March so I guess I'll check back then. I'm speculating that the low inventory for the GT's is somehow due to the Earrthquake/Tsunami/Fukishima disaster.

Just a quick question to you guys, how hot are your chipset and VRM heatsinks? Mine are so hot they will burn me if I touch them, which I accidentally found out a minute ago. I can't remember any of my other motherboard being that hot, not even when I ran X58.

Mine is WARM but not nearly HOT and especially not hot enough to burn my skin ? are you heavily OC'd and overvolted maybe ?

 

Also see you list yourself as a WATERCOOLER guy ... they make WC'd  NorthBridge and VRAM / MOSFET cooler for the GENE-Z,

check the FRONT PAGE under >>> WaterCooling & Accessories <<<

Thanks, my chipset reports at 84*C right now when running the CPU at 1600mhz underclocked for idle. I'm wondering if something is wrong because there is plenty of airflow and the heatsinks are scalding hot.

EDIT: It was the airflow. Somehow my setup is not moving enough air when the fans are turned down for silence and it is causing the mobo temps to max out at 85* and then it starts warning me. Running the fans back up from 50% to 100% dropped it down to 30*C. I wonder if the case door being off has anything to do with it.

Do you guys think if I added a 120mm fan off the back of the case (it would have to be outside because of the radiator) it would help any? I don't think I could fit waterblocks for the chipset and VRM's to be honest. Here is a pic of my setup:
