Hello all. Returning to this thread after a while! It's time for my trusty 3770k rig to receive a rather large upgrade. I'm going 8700k and a 2070 Super (16GB 3200RAM).
The i7 is already de-lidded and lapped and will be sitting under a H55 cooler, liquid metal TIM and i'm going to swap the fan out with a Noctua NF-A12x15 PWM, Premium Quiet Slim Fan. My question is.. it this combo of cooling still the best choice or are there better options out there? Has anyone hit 5ghz @ 1.3v without overheating?
Failing the above i'm tempted to build in a Phanteks evolv shift and a much beefier single fan AIO.
