4.6ghz but its not the boards fault. My cpu is below average I think.Originally Posted by iamlucky
Nice - I'm going to have to take a look at your build log - do you have one?
I have never done watercooling but I will only attempt it once I have used my computer for a year two.
How much have you overclocked by? I would like to add it to the list of overclocking achievements for the board if that is ok with you.
I'm such a dummy - a case of working too hard today. I'm glad I have a holiday tomorrow. Got the link - it's in your sig
The tube bending takes a lot of patience and practice. There are a few guides on youtube. Just search primochill acrylic (sorry, cant link because youtube is blocked at work). I had purchased some tubes from TAP plastics to practice on before doing it on the color tubes (Primochill).Originally Posted by SortOfGrim
I really like the acrylic tubes. How did you do the bends? And how long did it take to conquer that method?
Also as you can't squeeze the tubes anymore, how hard is it to bleed?
Haswell gets hot too quickly. What temps you get at load (@ ambient temp)?
If you get lucky with the cpu lottery, you can hit 4.6ghz with 1.2v, which is max volts for a high end air cooler or high end close loop water cooler (H100i, etc). Temps should be around 80 ish. Might want to see what kind of cpu you got before abusing your chipOriginally Posted by delavan
Is that a delid? Doh..I got ninja'd
Well I was convincing myself that there was no way I would delid, but I begin to change my mind...
I'll aim for 4.5GHz...crossing fingers
Great setups I see there...I dig the red PSU I thought it was an ROG PSU for a sec lol!
And what were the temps on stock?Originally Posted by Inglewood78

I delidded through vice and hammer and let me tell you, its an interesting feeling when you hit your new $300 cpu with a hammer, LOL.
