Now that you have that upgrade itch its time to stop playing around with air coolers(Noctua NH-D14, etc. , All in one coolers (H70, H100, etc.) and go water cooling. Thats is of course after you learn how to overclock from the awesome people here on this forum. heres a little reading material smile.gif

My cpu stays at room temp idle with just my nexxos monsta 120mm rad. Right now its sitting at 9C idle and while gaming i was at 23C and i'm running 4.7ghz at 1.4v. I have yet to try for 5ghz but i've been waiting for winter break when i can get some PTO to spend a day or two to see where my chips max overclock will land(hoping 5.2-5.4) with just a single 120mm x 80mm rad.

Enjoy the new hardware and good luck with the overclocking!!!!

Let me know what you think fellas.

The GPU has a very annoying, high pitch coil whine. Any way to fix it? Im hoping itll go away eventually... The sooner the better.
