I know that I'm already fine with cooling, since I will be installing a Corsair H100i watercooler. Not only that. I will even replace its pre-applied thermal paste with an overclocking-grade one which is the Gelid GC-Extreme.
My only problem now is my PSU.
With h100 I or cooler master nepton 280l you should be getting the chill that I had for my fx4300 300fsb 21 hours occt stress that was enough to chill it up to 1.6V full load stress stable
which is much cheaper and hassle free compared to an
custom loop which you can build like me
have 3 radators but chills worse than my 280L nepton
Then you will need to be making sure that your north bridge and vrm heat sink isn't hot so you know you board will last
if it has a heat sink a fan should do the job
if not then probally get a new board unless you it can be installed with a water chill which is really time comsuming and highlly not possible
If you do not have an heat sink boosting past 1.55V on an intel can cause your vrm to automatically throttle like how I tried with my 970 pro9 3 no vrm heat sink on my fx4300 throttling once I give it more than 1.50V (full load) Edited by Iwamotto Tetsuz - 1/15/15 at 6:26am
