More than enough rad id say
I have a 420 and a 280 and with 2 780 GPUs (32% OC) and 4770k CPU (4.6GHz) my water temps are at 30C and I have just push fans. I was gonna add pull when Phanteks let us buy additional PCBs but now I don't really see the point.
As for the pump..... I went with a 35X2 (Liked the idea of having 2nd pump for redundancy if 1st one died) .... tho it seems to run just fine with just one of the pumps running

Yeah I stopped at 4.6, I have no doubt my chip will do it, I just want to get everything nice and stable for a bit before I get the oc itch
The i7 and the HT does make it a bit more difficult .... maybe I'll try and see what i could do w/ HT off. But w/ it on, Im a full 0.11 volts above ya so will generate more heat regardless, lidded or delidded....but lookin at the numbers.... at 1.3 volts, I'm 0.04 more than you and was only 6C higher .... seeing as 0.07 more volts took me up 15C .... just on the ratio I'd estimate the 0.11 that I'm higher to be worth close to 22C .... If I could be stable at 1.26, that would put me at 52C w/ HT on ..... lidded.
I assume you overclocking in manual mode, I've been testing on adaptive since that's what everyday setting would be ..... I'd easily shoot past 1.5 volts if I ran AIDA on adaptive..... jumps up to 1.408 under RoG RB which is was close enuff to my self imposed 1.4 limit (at no more than 1.392 99% of the time) that I let it pass....since only for short bursts.
I had a goal of 4.6 Ghz @ 2400 RAM speed and < 75C..... I didn't think my chances of reaching that goal lidded were possible.....now that I'm there, I'm a little less inclined to tear down and delid..... who knows tho..... might be tempted over time to go for 4.7 ... then again...... it took 0.7 to get to 4.6 from 4.5..... would expect more to be required from 4.6 to 4.7 and even that much puts me at 1.45 which is territory i don't wanna be in for a production box.

Two fans max on any connectorEdited by JackNaylorPE - 11/27/13 at 12:02pm
