I need to know if the Corsair H60 can cool this CPU at full load , for as high as 12+ hours. If not I can always go down to 3.8, or choose not to OC altogether.

Ivy's are know to run warm so I recommend using air coolers like the Hyper 212 EVO or Noctua's DH 14 if you have LP RAM sticks

Thanks for the replies. I've narrowed the cooling down to a Noctua, H100/Coollit ECO-II 240, or the one in your second link toolmaker.

But I'll have to purchase the cooler separately and install myself; so what I may do is just keep the CPU at stock speed (perhaps a slight OC). And a couple months later I'll purchase one of these for higher clocks.

Should have just kept or bought a 2700k

If you just want to use your machine right away you might want to look away from water cooling but if you have the time then jump on it.

You won't go wrong with the Noctua but if your in a budget and still want great performance the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO is the best you can get for the money.

What? 2700k is the Sandy Bridge version of the 3770k, but it doesn't come as an option for the rig I want to build. How about the 3820? It's ether that + x59 board, or 3770k + z77. My primary purpose for upgrading my CPU is rendering time (multi-threaded). I hear it may be better to go with the x59 since it's more future proof...

Edit: Just checked Andtech CPU benches, & the 3820 is slightly beneath for multi-threaded rendering. I was considering the 3930k but I've heard it has big issues with overheating, even with a bigger cooler like H100.

You mean the x79 chipset that runs on the 2011 socket. The x58 chipset runs on the 1366 socket.

If you want some real multi-threading performance then yes the 3930k is the best bang for the buck unless you want to pay the ridiculous $1000USD for the 3960X.

Do you intend to do some real rendering right, because otherwise you're just burning your money.

You'd need a better cooler, or custom watercooling of course ;)

Yea sorry I meant the x79. I was actually just considering paying an extra few hundred to go with the x79 board & 3930k; it does much better on the multi-threading benches. Perhaps I can get one with a Coollit ECO-II 240 (akin to H100), & leave it on stock speed for a bit to test temps. I can go from there and up the clock slightly if it's safe.

That said, my rendering solutions are a split between conventional CPU rendering (Vray), and real-time unbiased GPU rendering. Perhaps the 3770k will suffice (plus less chance to burn out?).
