    You won't get any serious overclocking with a 212+ on a 2600K

    There is very little difference if any at 8x or 16x even in PCIE 3.0 even with high end cards BTW.

    Choose a good kit. I did I have had liquid cooling for 5 years now and love it. Just remember it is fun and takes time. There are tons of threads on this hereon how to setup and test and I suggest you read them.

    Please take a chill pill too. cdawall is a very smart person and has helped me more times than I can count so please be respectful to every one here or you will end up not getting any one to help you ever again.

    Thanks. Expensive, but can I buy that $220 water cooler and then remove all my fans and have a silent PC? Curious. If so then I will most likely do this in the near future.

    removing fans from a liquid cooled setup costing $220 is silly D:
    for 3770k i think most people are running a H80/H100 or something near identical for their cpu, and achieve wonderful clocks with such a cooler, and it really isnt that expensive. You'll probably find overclocking isnt that hard when it comes to temperature nowadays for 24/7 pc use, as the high end aftermarket coolers look after the cpu quite well. More of it is down to your skill on a well made OC'ing motherboard, and getting lucky with a golden chip.
    Take for example my setup, I cannot get to 5Ghz like a fair few others can, and my cpu runs 10 degrees below the recommended top temperature.

    I'm so confused. He has such a nice computer yet knows little to nothing about computers. Little to nothing in the sense of comparison to tpu members of course.

    Since when did it cost 600-900$ to cool a 3770k.

    I share our mutual dissatisfaction.

    Let's sing a song! (I made an adaptation or two.)

    Ohhhhhhhh.....

    I only do when the cost of overnight is significantly less than what I am paying already. My last upgraded costed 1720 USD and I got overnight for 80 USD. 80 USD isn't worth it if you only spent 300 USD but if I'm already spending over a thousand, it's a drop in the pool.

    right ,as long as you don't try extreme OC with IB a good air cooled HS like 212 evo should give good 4.5-4.7 w/o going over 80c or so, of course will depend on chip and how good IHS was installed .

    Something like H100 will give tiny bit more head room and maybe slightly less voltage needed but it won't be earth shattering .

    Technical Tittery....
    I'm just wondering (or hoping) there is enough common sense from you regular TPU guys to leave this thread alone and help more needing and deserving people with their posts as I'm sure they need assistance more than this guy needs to troll for stuff Google can answer(and mainly ignore advice given when he gets it, insisting he can prove it wrong), taking both your time and teh LULZ in the process.

    He got his question answered to the fullest of the ability of any one here (a question he could of asked in one of his other 3829747392 threads) and at this point its just backwards and forwards "brown noise" chat, to be honest.


    Nothing to see here...

    Let it die and help someone else, TPU regulars?? :toast:





    And yes, a 3x70k will overclock just fine on mid-end air cooling.... and yes, the better the cooling the better the overclocking headroom you'll have.
    No, you don't need to spend $489 on liquid to overclock to high 4's and no, I don't have anything more to add than thread other than what has already been stated by the fine people here.... 383 times since you joined.


    Be gone now.

    I agree. He gave some good info before posting uselessness.

    Just unsubscribe if you don't want to continue posting here. Best of luck.
    Personally I am enjoying the thread and how many people are giving good information.

    Will H100 be much more (significantly) quieter though?

    No you won't but you don't need to OC a 2600k/3770k either. They are plenty fast enough at stock.

    @vaw

    cdawall is really a great guy, you just gotta take some criticism, It's his normal joking. I've come accustomed to it. :p @ cdawall

    Are you sure it isn't more basic than that?

    I feel like half this guys questions that he makes threads about can be asked and researched on google(What my co workers at microsoft always say. GOOGLE IT). I also find his threads to last way longer then they should, either by people commenting about his nonscense or him asking the same question that was answered number of times before.
