Unknown if it can handle it. It all comes down to the silicon lottery. Just remember that you might have to manually clock the RAM slower if your 5960X won't handle the 4.375 GHz it's going to get clocked at with the 125 MHz BCLK. Worst case is, you have to ignore the XMP profiles on the RAM and manually underclock it to get something that works with your CPU.

Oh just 4.3.. That seems easy for what other people have been hitting. I thought it was going to be in the 4.8 range. My target for it is at least 4.2 so 4.3 doesn't seem to hard. Pumped up pumps (pun intended) should make it work. With all the rads everything should be nice and cool.

Thanks so much for showing me that.. Looks like most of their mobos are different than mine.. With more research I saw that the mobo I selected was not exactly fit for overclocking. I should have better luck if I switch over to one with better results. Everything for now looks good but if I have anymore questions I will most likely post on this thread. Thanks everyone!

Just WC your CPU and if you have Titan X your GPU. All else is overkill.

I acctually was waiting for the EVGA watercooled Titan X to come out, funny that you mention that.

I really just wanted to pass this whole thing past this community first before making any decisions since I am pretty in-experienced in this subject. Thanks.
