Will an Intel RTS2011LC be good enough cooling if I want to overclock a 3970X to 4.8Ghz stable 24/7?

Will an Intel RTS2011LC be good enough cooling if I want to overclock a 3970X to 4.8Ghz stable 24/7?

Thanks

What about this:

An article on Tom's: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/core-i7-3970x-sandy...

What was said: "However, the RTS2011LC closed-loop thermal solution we’ve been using for testing is able to handle 150 W CPUs"

"Today’s -3970X rests comfortably at 4.7 GHz using the same closed-loop liquid cooler. "

I would think not. Maybe 4.0

meh, maybe if you were only minor overclocking, If you want a close loop liquid cooler get the H80 or H100.

It will be fine if you keep your environment at a comfortable temperature, but it may not be enough in a room at 30°C or more.
