How does that cooler cool the cpu? Highly considering getting that set as well.

I have the same cooler on my i5 3570k and I'm getting around 28-29C at idle and no more than 36-37C under load while gaming (BF3). I used Arctic Silver thermal paste instead of the stuff that comes in the box aswell. And some proof:



Also some pics of the finished build. And my fears were confirmed when the full cover block I bought for my Graphics card did not fit. Despite the fact that EK's website said it does fit my card >.>. So I've just got a super cooled CPU now lol.

35*C? What speed? I Will be using it for OC my 2700k to 5.0. So do you think I will achieve a good temp?

Eh. Why not. Not done with it by a long shot (want to fully water cool, get another 670, and get a better motherboard and psu like the AX series for their presleeved modular design along with some other changes like more fans and dremel work), but I'm happy with it right now.

Sorry forgot to mention it's at stock speeds. Really it's going to depend alot on the rest of your setup as well. More Radiator surface area = better cooling if your overclocking to 5.0 (which is pretty far up there) Your prob. gonna want to go with an external unit. Something I would recommend is if your going to get the raystorm buy the full copper one for a bit more cooling power. I have the basic one as I do not plan to overclock.

On another note overclocking seems to be a bit unnecessary. 99% of the time these days the bottleneck comes from either the graphics card or the hard drive unless your doing some serious rendering or 3D modeling. If your just gaming overclocking the video card; that will yield much better results.

The Overclocking is just to push my CPU smile.gif view distance in for an example WoW, requires a good CPU speed. smile.gif
Regarding the gpu. I tried doing a bit of tweaking last night. Kombustion crashed on me after 40 min.

what would be a good graphics card to get for 250-300? I am running a 9800 GT now lol so its time to upgrade
post #5638 of 12520
GTX 570 is a great performance for the price card, for a bit more a 670 is also a great choice.
