Should I upgrade from a EVGA X58-E758?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello all -

I currently have this build as follows:

Motherboard: EVGA E758-A1 3-Way SLI
Processor: Intel Core i7-930 @ 3.5-3.7Ghz - Corsair H50 Push/Pull
RAM: 6GB Corsair Dominators DDR3-1600MHz
Graphics card: EVGA GTX 570 SC
Power supply: Corsair 850HX
Hard drive: Intel X25-M 80GB SSD, WDD Black Caviar 750GB
Case: Cooler Master ATCS 840
Here's the situation. I just got my GTX 570 today and let me tell you, it's a beast. I currently have a BenQ XL2410T on backorder and I figured the 570 will compliment it well with the 1920x1080 @ 120hz. Anywho, after getting the 570, I noticed that my temps during CSS and BC2 have increased by about 5C across the board. As it is now, during BC2, I get the following after playing for about 20 minutes:
CPU: 35-42C
VREG: 79-82C
System: 38-45C

My CPU can definitely handle 3.8-4.0Ghz as far as temps and voltages are concerned, but the VREG temps are too high for comfort. I had to remove the VREG heatsink to get my Corsair H50 radiator attached, and I replaced it with these for the MOSFETS: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835708012. With that said, if I were to upgrade to a board such as the EVGA X58 Classified3, ASUS Rampage III Extreme or something of that nature, and assume that given the height of its VREG heatsink I'd be able to keep it, do you guys know if the temperatures are better VREG wise in comparison to the E758? Any suggestions in general? I want to create a custom water loop in the future but I'm waiting to see what Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge have to offer in the next year. Thanks!
