It is not done as I still need to upgrade my 260gtx

Alright, I will put up more pictures up when I get back from a business trip.

I am still waiting for my first EVGA GTX 480 Hydro Copper FTW. I will be adding only one now, and keeping 1 loop.
When I add another 480 and the MB block I will go with 2 loops.

max temp of 73c and your on water? Or did you mean Fahrenheit?

That's 73c not 73f with prime 95 running 12 threads on an
overclocked i7 980 @ 4.5ghz
That is not high from what I read.
I believe the thermal max is 100c on an i7 chip.

edit
I am not keeping it at 4.5
I am going to keep it at 4.2ghz
that's 21 x 200, vcore 1.375v
w/max temps around 59c

nice OC though!

thats quite a low temp for a 980x, i get 67c max temps on my 980x at 4.4 ghz

so thats not a bad temp at all on load.

the i7 chips use hyper-threading
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyper-threading
The i7 980 has 6 cores, with hyper-threading the chip acts as though it has 12 cores. When I run Prime95, to tax all 12 cores, I need it to run 12 threads.

I think I got that right.LOL
