My System Specs

Default

Well, liquid cooling is very convenient, especially in smaller cases, but I still have prejudice against any liquid close to electronics. I am old school air cooling (Porshe-engineering-style). CM+ EVO - dirt cheap and effective. Cheapest LC is twice the price, tripple the worries.

I have set sync Turbo Boost at 4GHz. On IBT standard hottest core went up to 70degreeC, on IBT very high - 72. I hope is not too hot, as Tj is set at 105 and stock cooling normally gets 3770 to 75 under load from what I have read.
