get a better cooler also
wouldn't be surprised if this cooler topped out at 4.5-4.6
I did buy a closed water loop. The Thermaltake Water 2.0 Pro
its a closed loop 120mm rad with push/pull.
It was the best one the store had and I don't have a good case at the moment to start working on a custom loop or a bigger rad
I have her at 4.6Ghz atm at 1.344 vCore (with LLC on Extreme), seems to be fine after 3 games of BF3. Idle at 18C peaking at 43C on the cores 39c / 48c on the socket. (Ambient around 16C)
I took my 3x40mm fans off my VRM as they sounded like turbines, and stuck a 120mm Antec ballbearing fan over it at 1200rpm. Almost silent but realisticly I notice no diffference between the two fan setups or no fans at all /shrug the sabertooth has a pretty nice heatsink over the vrms but every little bit helps!
Is my cooling good enough to shoot for 5ghz?
