Ivy Bridge 3770k @ 5.0ghz

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.

Any sub ambient systems for @$300?

    the corsair H100 is the top all in one water cooling kit on the market.

    out of curiosity, why do you need to reach 5ghz?

  3. Agreed with ct1615. Exactly why do you NEED 5Ghz. I can almost guarantee that you DON'T.

    And custom water/sub ambient is about it for 5Ghz on Ivy.

    Dang iPad. I accidentally put as best answer.

    It's because I found my CPU bottlenecking my GTX 670 4-way SLI
  5. 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.

    Have you tried 4.5 yet? MUCH easier to accomplish, and honestly, if 4.5 doesn't cut it, you may need to just live with it. A 5Ghz 24/7 OC on Ivy would be crazy IMO, without awesome cooling.

    How much would a decent custom water or sub ambient system cost?

    I don't really know much about pricing for things like that, unfortunately.

    I took my 3570k up to 4.6ghz with hyper 212 and temp in mid 90s so I didn't leave it at that speed for long. I did do a few benches.

    BF3 online 3570@ 3.4ghz average GPU usage of 670s was 50-60%

    Bf3 online 3570@ 4.6 70-80% GPU usage.

    I saw a guy with CPU up to 5.0ghz and 680 4-way GPU usage was mid 90%

    My goal for my system is BF3 online 5760x1080 at120fps.

  11. I spent about 430.00 for a custom water cooled setup, but it's not install yet I just
    can't seem to find the time.

  12. Will do, thanks Earl.

    $430 for CPU and GPU or GPU only?

    That's just cooling the CPU for now , I will add the cards when I decide
    which ones I want.
