I have not noticed a difference though I am happy with only 1.3 volts for 4.6 GHz myself.

No difference compared to previous BIOS. Still rock-stable at 4.9 @ 1.34v.

I'm still waiting to get my board after the SATA-II fix and they are available again, and I haven't even ordered a CPU cooler yet.

This morning, as I type this, I'm now reviewing "How to watercool" videos if it makes you feel any better. LOL

Definitely try to take the plunge into WC. I was like you little more than a month ago and it's actually surprisingly easy to build and setup.

Funny thing, Kold. I was in the industrial rubber business most all of my life, selling to manufacturers. My early work was over 7 years at a distributor in Cincinnati that specialized in hydraulic and pneumatic hose and fittings. I know all about hose barbs, tube fittings, all kinds of hose and tubing, and that thermal plastic PVC (polyvinyl chloride) tubing they use in the computer liquid cooling systems. The plumbing of it really doesn't bother me at all. I just don't know if I want to mess with the additional hassles over air cooling.

However, from what you and others have said, and what I've read, liquid cooling really does pay off big when it comes to getting lower temps while overclocking. So, now I'm leaning that way.

Thx for your input!

Tim

I would definitely go with liquid cooling for the cpu, way better than air for overclocking.

GPU's on the other hand i usually stick with air.

OK... so what CPU water cooling are you guys using?

It looks to me like the XSPC Rasa 750 RX360 Water Cooling Kit looks pretty nice. (Nice big rad there.) $200, but hey, I'm an old, retired, rich guy. LOL... j/k.

There is also this RS360 version, which appears to be identical to the first one, but has a thinner rad for $50 less.

RX360 rad dimensions: 124x63x400mm
RS360 rad dimensions: 121x35x397mm

Any thoughts about the two rads for the pricing?

However, I don't mind putting out that much cash for this system. When you think about it, it's only maybe $60-$110 more than the Noctua NH-D14 fan I was thinking of using. Might as well do it right.

Thx!

Tim

P.S. It just dawned on me while I was typing another message that maybe I should check the prices for the individual parts instead of getting a kit. I'll do that today.

bump.....come on i know more people own this motherboard, if you don't know how to join the club then post a SS of CPU-z showing your CPU overclock speed, voltage and motherboard info and i'll add you.

BTW i am using an EK waterblocks system.

Both are good. IMO go with the bigger one since it's only $50 more. With the bigger rad, you could use slower fans. Just be warned you might catch the WC bug. I had a $200 budget 6 months ago and I'm already over $500
