H80 shouldn't even be considered WCing xD. It's easy and should only take about 5 or 6 mins. 15 mins if you are insanely slow.

IMO don't get another 570 yet, wait for them to go down in price. They will, if you still want a single card, you can sell your current card(~$240) and pick up a GTX 680($500). That will give you a little more VRAM to play with. But, dont get me wrong, SLI 570's annihilate everything I throw at it. It's just some games like VRAM a little more and right now 1.25GB of VRAM is not a smart buy. a 680 and SLI 570's should be about even in performance. thumb.gif SLI 570's might be slightly more powerful, but are lacking VRAM.

i cannot oc on this board. i cannot get it past 2300fsb, the only way i get my cpu up to 4.3 is just to raise the cpu clock only. nothing else except i had to increase vcore to 1.4v, this board is junk to me, unless im doing this wrong. btw, im a noob to oc'ing

yea im actually trying to sell my 570 but no offers as of yet. i do want the single 680 instead of dual 570's. one reason is its cheaper than a new board ( 2x 16x pcie ) and a new psu to run it all, and another 570....wow, not cheap.

It's simple. It's an enclosed Watercooling system. All you do is mount the block onto the CPU, and mount the 120 MM Radiator to a 120MM fan in your case. It's that simple. I had an H50, and the temps were great!
