If you look down on H20 there are two guys that overclock to 5GHZ on X2 and X6. Do you think they just validated but probably weren't stable. If I wanted to get to 4.6 on a X6, what kind of H20 systems would I need, particular the brand.
I had a funny situation with the Sandy Bridge b/c i decide to build a new system in Jan and I bought the new 2600k and with ASUS Evo and was really happy, just using it on stock and i didn't get chance to overclock it b/c I had an issue with the 5th PCIx slot and I sent it back for a new one and that following Monday the recall went into effect so I got screwed and they kept it and refunded me. I couldn't got a new one in April and had all this time to have fun with it. Anyways I went with a X6 and find that is more fun trying to get more out of your dollar then spending all that money on Intel even though Sandy Bridge is not a bad deal at all!
On water cooling your pushing over 5 GHZ on 2600k and 2500K!
I think I'll wait until the bulldozer or wait until spring and hope Sandy bridge boards go down a little.
My question to your question is that, Is there a point where FPS has threshold where it doesn't matter how much higher you go. I get 50 FPS plus on 1920 on 1080 on Crysis but I don't have a monitor that gets a higher resolution so is it pointless to try to overclock for more FPS.
