I have my cpu at 1.4 vcore currently and don't want to go any higher, my temps even under intel burn test only get to about 60. would having my cpu cooler allow a higher frequency at the same vcore?

Think of your fans like cars. Your sports car will be faster than a diesel truck, but when you put a 5 ton load behind both of them the truck will outrun the sports car every day. Which is why a GT with kill a Slipstream on a heatsink.

It could let you get slightly higher, but the main point of water cooling is to allow you to have a higher vcore and still keep the heat in check. Do it though, i love my loop!

You can push your OC quite a bit with WC'ing if you spend enough and set it up for high performance, large rad, high cfm fans. If your satisfied with your OC now I wouldn't bother with it.

Really if I were you I'd spend the money for a E8600 instead of the water and you'll get a higher OC with less v-core and and heat to deal with.
