All I know is that it won't do the job. Off to cruise the cooling section for a while.
Personally I'd go with a different case, besides that 120 in the back there doesn't look like there's much room for an extra rad. I actually had to dremel into my case to fit the 480 in there but I'm so glad I did

But...but I love the looks of this case... I've got the tools though, so I'm more than willing to do some crazy case mods.

EDIT: Up to 4.551GHz. Good enough to browse the web and run skype. Not exactly stable yet.

Not like you can really test if its stable or not, I'd be worried to burn the CPU up, lol.

Yea, I'm certainly going to back down to 4.41GHz after tonight. Think my booting problems stem from hitting TJ Max just on boot. Can't tell if I really am, but at this rate, I wouldn't doubt it.

If I were you I'd tune it down until you can get some proper cooling in that thing, I'd hate to see you kill a good clocking chip like that.

It's back down, but suddenly my idle temps are too high. That's rather odd, considering nothing changed.

EDIT: One of the hoses was kinked. It's the norprene kind, so no hope to fix it. Just holding it open w/ a binder clip ghetto style, lol. Why didn't this come with tygon???

Tagon tubing FTW man, I've got white 3/8 tubing.

Is your PC by chance an iBuyPower? I was just flipping through CPU and noticed that they were selling your PC with a free 120mm watercooler, lol.

Yep. I was going to build it myself, but the whole thing was $1300 on Black Friday, and I couldn't have built it for much less. Oh, and I'm lazy. I'd rather they build it and I fix it, then have to do everything.

Nah JP man, theres a thrill that comes with building a PC yourself.. Is your watercooler similar to a Corsair H50?
