Also that Aegir is one of the top air coolers and is only topped by the 240's in water, as far as 120radiator water setups, this will outpace them. You can look up the marks the Aegir got on frostytechs review of the H100 as it is listed in that review.
150w and 85w tests
So in short, 54c was the max vcore temps (56 @ 4.7 but didn't post it) with IBT+Cinebench running at the same time to really squeeze it, 62c'ish at socket. Medium LLC reduces board local ambient temp near socket, higher than that adds 5c. It isn't the clock that you get the heat from, it is the voltage/amperage consumption and local socket temp increase from the vrm based on it's load stress, I either have a really cherry chip, or people throw way more voltage at their clocks than they need due to not refining their other voltages and timings.
I won't take offense to it, I have posted many many many screenshots of my setup and it's benchmarks, as well as various configs showing fsb vs nb vs ht, with in the end memory timing had the most impact of all. : /
I did also post in the Data Collection thread all actual voltages and timings used. (As for arctic? hardly, room likes to sit around 80F.)
Edit: something I missed in your comment, my stock vcore voltage at 4ghz is not 1.416, it is set to 1.416 to drop back down to 1.356 at max load which is just a hair above the 4ghz base stock voltage my chip had. Medium LLC doesn't push voltage like High or Extreme, especially when you have Capacities set to 100% so it cannot exceed the set mark.
As far as water goes, I see it as junk unless it's a real 240mm or bigger kit, not a gimpy h90 120mm rad cooler or even worse a lower model. As for 4.6ghz, the thermals aren't enough wattage to overtax the aircooler, if I want stable 4.8 or higher, it no longer has the capability to keep up and a 240+ kit is needed.
