So I treated myself and spent silly money on an Asus Z77 Sabertooth and a 3750K. I'm wondering if anyone has had experience with Ivy Bridge overclocking and the Corsair H80. I've heard that overclocking on air is much more difficult than on Sandybridge because of the temp ramp up being so quick. Is the H80 a good solution / any good in general. Does anyone know if you just stick another fan on a H60 have you essentially got the same thing but without the fan controls?
Just incase anyone is wondering why I spent silly money on the Asus - I think heat killed the last mobo so the thermal radar and 5 year warranty appealed. Have to admit I love the look of the thing too!
Other question - has anyone had the cahooneys to try and remove the heat spreader on a 3750K and replace the crappy thermal paste with something better?
As for all the help - Thanks to you all! And thanks for the gratz Monotype I didn't even realise I'd hit 1000 posts
Last question on PSUs if I may - If my PSU is fried - I decided to get a new one along with a 7950 and run with one card to reduce heat. Would something like the XFX 750w be okay with this setup, 2 SSDs and 5 Hdds?
