Thats without getting used parts or anything, and without going cheap on tubing or a res. And as long as you are under, like, 80C, you can make any overclock without melting your chip. It's the mobo that restricts you, not the temps.
Sorry I'm venting all this on you, BTW
I'm getting a bit more "Dude you hacked your TRUE'' and ''Let's see what will happen if you throw the TRUE in lava''.
Did you not see me standing up for the TRUE & the job you did at the end of my post? Geeesh, no respect
People choose H2O to go above and beyond air's capability. The only problem is it does get very expensive over time. There's always a better block or better performing pump............ That's also a huge benefit of water over air, you can always step up the performance of any given part at any time. Air cooling doesn't give you much variance in the way of this, but it did pay off for you! Post back in the dead of summer and say you are just as happy though
Like I said previously, kudos to you for getting the results you have, just please don't beat down members seeing the title, then choosing to post a pfft. "Water(like) temps on AIR" sounds like you have invented a cure for cancer ya know.
As a matter of fact, I'm going to +rep you for your efforts
