I hate the 4770k. I will post some pics soon.

Now I have to find the "Extremely disappointed in the I7 4770K Club."

Hit the heat wall at 4.2. 1.26v

Indeed, with what haswell brings to the table, I expect the least they would have done is get rid of the nightmare that was an ivy bridge's IHS.
I delidded mine and I'm happy, I still prefer sandy bridges ihs frown.gif Overclocking won't be limited off the bat by temperatures, which is always a nice thing to avoid extra steps, razors, or hammers to achieve lower temperatures biggrin.gif

Did you achieve a signifigant temp drop from delidding your chip hulk? Agree about the poor ihs job on haswell, my chip in sig @4.5ghz on 1.267v is very hot. Even moreso than my previous 3770k, (4.5ghz on 1.34v). Such a shame though when the end user has to delid to improve on intels effort and risk destroying the chip.

Aside from that, great thread here with some stunning builds and a mass of very good information.thumb.gif

I did - about 15*C lower afterwards. The new vice method is very easy as well.

Damn - the Bitfenix LEDs I want are out of stock everywhere. Anyone have any good suggestions for inexpensive LED systems?
post #335 of 945
You mean case LEDs? Or LED case fans?

Cougar seems to be a popular fan choice, though they don't offer the 200mm units my case demanded.

I think you're talking about case LED strips, though......I see the NZXT HUE being used a good bit, and seems decent though I have no experience.

Installed my ek fb m6f blocked today. Was expecting dramatic lower temp, but to my disappointment no difference. Although the block looks nice I just feel like I wasted money.

Hm...but isn´t that what all the review said, too?
I mean, the reason why most people switch from the stock water block to EK is supposed be the different material the block is made of or is it not?

I am actually having a hard time convincing myself to buy it. I am a bit over the edge when it comes to "worst case scenarios" and precautions, but it seems it's going to be a 100$ part costing me hours of labor for marginal gains. That south bridge block bothers me, looks like it will be a pain for dual/tri gpu setups

Do you have the OEM Block on your loop currently?
