hi guys,
if i want to get to 4800mhz and above with my 3570k i need something better than my frostflow id liquid cooler 240l.

here is a link to my local supplier if you wouldn't mind advising me whats good and whats not??

i would consider phase but have no idea where to get one or price tbh.....


thank you in advance smile.gif

oh yeah.. and my case is the coolermaster storm stryker
all hardware in my sig is current rig

Any of those EK kits would be great. I like the X240 kit, but the L240 would be a good cheaper alternative if the price on that is too high.

do you think there would be any difference in max cooling potential between them mate?

also, if i went a 360mm would i mount it outside the case or just go the 240-280 to top mount it like now?

btw, checked your pics. nice builds!

Thanks thumb.gif The storm stryker case is the one that actually made me want to go with a white case to begin with. thumb.gif
The X240 kit has a better water block and a thicker radiator, and I think a better pump, so it has the higher cooling potential. I believe I've seen people use a 360 rad up top, but they may have needed to mod the case to do it. Check through the storm stryker thread for more pics/ideas on that if you haven't already.

What are your current temps under max load?

Maybe the EK 240 predator would suffice.

Have you had any success at 4.8GHz or above? 4.8GHz stable may not be practical on your chip...

What is the voltage and temps at 4.7 GHz?

this is my recent thread_

http://www.overclock.net/t/1607258/asrock-z77-extreme-4-and-3570k-at-4700mhz-stable-settings (not heaps of posts to read) which i made to help those struggling to hit 4600-4700 using asrock z77 extreme 4

i can get 4800 stable without wh errors but dont want to run prime too long as i get to 93-95 deg

at 4700 i hit 80-82 ish using any method. ei turbo volts/offset/fixed

from what i see and read my chip is more temp controlled than something like my old Q9450 which maxed out the fsb before hitting max temps


i get 4700 @1.30v
4800@ 1.360
1.350 gets to about 90deg but with wh errors when running prime 1.360 gets rid of the errors and browser crashes (while running prime only) so i believe the chip has a bit left to give me.

please correct me if i have missed anything.

oh and cpu temp seems to lower a little bit when i increase vtt volts sometimes or am i imagining things? ambient temp change perhaps?
pll volts doesnt help temps on my chip but seems to have helped others
1.350 gets to about 90deg but with wh errors when running prime 1.360 gets rid of the errors and browser crashes (while running prime only) so i believe the chip has a bit left to give me.

Littledevil phase change units are what you get, They ship to aus, They are about 1k Shipping included, You could also go the chillbox route, And depending where you are in aus, You can have my old Socket 1155 Liquid cooling gear
