What in gods name do you need 3 480 rads for? A single 480 is more than enough for your CPU and graphics card. Those other two 480s are probably doing around 2% of the cooling work in that entire loop.

And if you are reaching 77 you might want to try a re-mount of your CPU block.
my voltage is over 1.424 so that's why it's as warm as it is. i7 cpus also are much warmer than AMD's or Intels i5-i3s. My cooler is mounted just perfectly, even got new TIM on there the other day, GC Extreme, went down 2 degrees when compared to before on Arctic Silver MX5. This is 77 under load btw, not in idle (after 20 minutes of prime 95).

I have 3 480 rads in my system and my cpu @4,3 Ghz reaches 77 degrees. Imagine what would happen were I to do this on air, the temps would be in the 90's
I hit 78c at 4.2. So is the money it cost for your water setup worth 100mhz. Hmmm.

I had (and still have) a megahalems. You're absolutely right, it's nice to look at! It also had a surprising amount of cooling power, sometimes better than lower-end watercooling.

ok man whatever. You have your opinion I have mine. I like watercooling you like air cooling. Let's leave it at that. No point hogging the thread any further

Well my computer hadet been stable at all on air for a few months sence i put it under water its been 100% stable even at 4400mhz and needing less vcore then on air. Same with my video card i couldnt sniff 1000mhz on air even at 1.40 volts on water im runnning 1000 on just 1.18. Thats one thing alot of you on air dont get water can get you same overclock sometimes but on less volts.

Oh, okay--OP, you ought to have asked whether your COOLING components were worth it. I assumed your CPU, since that's what you were emphasizing, though I guess I should have looked more closely at which subforum this is in...

Since we're talking about your water cooling components, HELLS NO was it worth it if you ask me. Especially with those temperatures and only a couple/few hundred MHz's beyond what air cooling could do.

right, this is my last post in this thread:
If I'm allowed to give everyone my honest opinion: This Thread is Pointless
All you are doing is getting everyone to either choose the aircooling or watercooling side and then bashing the opponent. So pointless. Both air and watercooling has its benefits, I like watercooling because It's my hobby, not because it makes financial sense or because the gains are so immense they are unsurpassable.

peace

don't care for ht, don't need it, my temps are @ 60°c running ibt or vantage @ 4.2 w/ ht off 100% load on all four cores, only running 1.300v. w/ ht on @ 4.0 1.385, same deal w/ temps. is wc worth it? you damn skippy it is

Fine--but that's not the OP's position, otherwise he would not be asking if it was worth it if it were his hobby. No use in trying to justify your hobby--it's a hobby...

How can you get the same overclock with less voltage just because your using water? Doesn't the CPU need what it needs to run at certain speed regardless of the cooling being used?
