I have a 3570k right now and going exchange for a 3770k. Mobo is Gigabyte G1 Sniper 3. I need to reach 5.0ghz on my gaming PC. I was looking into the H100 but it doesn't look like It will be able to reach the 5.0 mark due to Ivy Bridge OC temperatures and may need a more powerful cooler. This will be my first watercooloing setup so a closed fixed system would be best.
Are there any more watercooloing systems that will get temps down more without going to a custom water setup? My Budget is @ $300.
I have the Corsair H100 for my Intel® Core™ i5-3570K I was able to run it stable at 4.6GHz but under load that pushed the temperatures up to the high 80s. So I would say 5GHz on a Intel Core i7-3770K would be really hard with a closed loop system. There are some higher end custom water cooling solutions that maybe able to do it but they will take a lot of work on your part to build and keep up.
