4.7 is beyond the thermal limits of any off the shelf AIO cooler (air...forget about it). At 4.7 it would thermal limit on a H110 w/ four NZXT 2Krpm 140mm fans. At 4.6 it was hot but not thermal limiting. If I was you...I would skip this gen and wait for the next as 4.5 is about as good as you will get with Air.

I agree this gen the motherboards are way more impressive than the CPUs...but damn are the motherboards impressive!
