Rig will be used mostly for internet use, and video editing and capture.

if it matters, the planned rig will be using an H80 for cooling, in a silverstone FT02 case.
If you haven't purchased the H 80 yet,you should take a look at the Antec series of liquid coolers. The H20 620 is much much more quiet than the H 80 and cools as good or better. I've tried the H 80 and H 100,and compared them to the h20 620 and 920 with way better temps and super quiet. www.antec.com

Just finished building new rig with i7-3770 (non-K) in smallest mATX case I coud find with no side perforations, just one fan in, one fan out. CM+ EVO, couple SSDs and stock 7970. Everything was set to stock / default values, no OC of any kind (TPU off). Under IBT load CPU for some unknown reason was going with x37 multiplier with hottest core just touching 64degreeC (I was expecting x34). Huge difference with stock Q9650 in BF3 64p, though.

It's perfectly normal. CPU multiplier went to x37 because of Intel Turbo Boost. As IBT loaded all four cores it went up to x37. If you've had loaded only one core it would go up to x39.
If you disable Intel Turbo Boost CPU multiplier will not raise above x34 for Core i7 3770.

64 C is pretty good. When I have tested Core i7 3770K temperatures went up to 60 C under Prime95 and Intel Liquid cooling solution while Core i7 2600K under same conditions hit ~55 C

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.

Yes, CM Hyper 212 Evo is dirt cheap but very effective cooler. ~70 C isn't too hot, plus I don't think that IRL you'll stress that CPU as much as IBT. If you want lower temperatures you could try and find lowest stable operating voltage for CPU.

Yeah, I lowered voltage to 1.15V on Q9650 to get it to 3.6GHz under 75degreeC with CM+ non-EVO version. Then I just ran it at stock as I did not have any real need to get more performance out of it. Once BF3 came along - I just got 3770/7970.

I am curious though, I have never read any horror stories about LC rapturing, spilling water all over MB, shortening it badly. May be I am just paranoid old man.

The AIO are really reliable now, with good tubing, seals and everything else.
Plus IIRC if a Corsair Unit does that and takes stuff out, Corsair Replaces whatever it killed.

Exactly why I wouldn't suggest another brand as I think they are the only ones who do this..

/Edit.. Ohh 999 posts.. :o
