Hi all,<br />
<br />
The following 3330 MHz. OC seems to be the most stable so far with my system on air.<br />
<br />
Do you guy's feel that it will be worth investing the money on water cooling and do you think that I will see much of a performance gain from it?<br />
<br />
I have been able to OC this system to 3800 MHz. on air, but it is not stable and the temps are too high.

What are your load temps? Idle temps are not very usefull.<br />
<br />
As to whether water cooling is "worth it", that's a question only you can answer. It is more expensive (if you want anything that is better than a high end air cooler anyway) and it does require more caerful assembly and maintence.......<br />
<br />
You may want to simply buy a much better heatsink if you're looking for just a little more speed, or if your current load temps are too high already.<br />
<br />
Personally, I think water is worth it not just for the performance but for the "cool" factor <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" />

100% load temps using TAT are 57-59 at 3330 MHz. on air.<br />
<br />
How much cooler does water generaly keep a system? My goal is to be able to run an overclock of 3800-4000 MHz. with my system, do you think that I will be able to do that 24/7 with a water cooler?<br />
<br />
Thumper, what do you run yours at?
