^ This.

Dont over spend, overclock and try spending money on a pair of good GPU's and a nice screen. Seriously what game is going to push 2700K to its limits? Use the money on GPU's. thumb.gif

My 2700k (Overclocked to 5ghz) ran hotter under water than my brothers 3570k @ 4.8, under water. Both systems were set up properly, but that could be a fluke and he has a bad chip. But, I trust real world results that I have seen more than I trust what's posted on the internet.

Regardless, if you don't like my thread stay out of it. Simple solution... There's no reason to mock me in a childish manner.

As for Birdman, it wouldn't be much more expensive to upgrade to a z77 and a 3570k due to the fact that I no longer have my 2700k. Was your suggestion based on the fact that you thought I still had one? Or are you suggesting I buy another Sandy bridge?

I wasn't meaning to mock you. But people hate the temps so much on IB that they delid it and add better thermal paste. You might have had an exceptionally bad 2700K, and your brother an exceptionally good 3570K. I was just saying that, in general, SB has better temps because the die is soldered onto the IHS instead of being thermally connected with cheap paste.

That's concerning, I need to search around and see some results with a quality liquid loop. That definitely may change my mind.

Liquid, you may not have any problems with heat per se. But delidding would definitely increase your OC significantly.

IB doesn't use crappy thermal paste at all. It's good and high quality stuff. Any paste is just worse than solder, obviously.

IB overclocks perfectly fine, more so with custom loop. Haswell is not going to bring any real performance improvements to the market anyway, so i'd definitely get Ivy if i was upgrading right now. The 1155 socket dying is irrelevant, as people with ivy would skip Haswell regardless, and for following gen CPU's you wouldn't use the same 2-3 year old MOBO to begin with.

Great info! So far I'm pretty satisfied with my build and excited to start a build thread soon. smile.gif

Just have to wait for my laptop to sell... lol.

When it comes time to upgrade, I'm sure I'll sell these components and do so. But when it comes to not having a computer, waiting 5 months isn't an option for me! smile.gif

+1 those choices will last a long time and serve you well. Why does everyone think that the new release of something automatically means that your current system is suddenly useless and you will regret it.

Get what works for you now. In a year or two upgrade gpu/display and ssd. next time upgrade the cpu/mobo and ram. That alternating process has always served me well.

Overclock what you can along the way which wont be an issue with the water cooling.

Are you keeping all you'r water cooling equipment as in you're spending $300 to add to what you already have?

That being said, if you've had success with the current brand/grade of parts why not just stick with similar.

You could always go crossfire 7950's under water. They start around $300. Not sure which ones have blocks available though. I just kinda threw this together to ballpark things.
