I never really break 50, highest I have seen the cores is 54.

That being said, the limits of my OC is the chip, and I kind of have a dud. Takes me 1.5 just to be windows stable at 5.0GHz, significantly more for actual stability. frown.gif

As far as GPU OC, um, yeah, WAY worth it. lol. My 480s hover around 45-50 at extended load

Watercooling is good if youve got the time and patients, oh and money. If you do it well, it pays off.. but everyone starts somewhere.
I run my i5 at 1.425v and it peaks at 64c, thats with a gtx 580 in the same loop all on a thin 360mm rad.

Not true atleast not for gpus when they alot cooler sometimes you can get clocks at less volts like my 5870 on air i couldnt get 1000 at any volts on water it would do it on 1.20 probly cause of the better vrm cooling. But for cpus air or water would be the same just temps would limit how high you can go.

Cool thanks for the advice, once I grab a 680gtx or 7970 lightning (waiting on benchmarks) I will put this rig under water, perhaps migrated into a NZXT switch 810 for using 2 rads without modding the case (1x 360 top, 1x 240 bot).

Both my rigs are very quiet. Case fans are probably at or under 1200 on my AMD machine, and I -know- they're under 1000 on my Phantom. CPU fan is about there too. You can have quiet air rigs. In fact, since I don't have to hear water in a res, or a pump, (or HDDs) at least as quiet.

I might wait till kepler and ivy bridge to set up a nice loop, I can't get myself to buy a block for my 570gtx knowing it's gone in a few months. Is it hard to take a water loop apart/bleed it?

There's a reason there are so many Twin Frozrs and Ice Q's in the world: You can have a very quiet GPU, on air. Don't buy crappy leaf blower reference cards and you won't have a problem.

That is true. But I wouldn't be able to push the overclocks I am with air and keep it quiet that's for sure.
