    Would love to see some pics man, that would be one of the few extreme-level builds around here

    Nah, intel is trying to maximise profit instead of actively competing with AMD. Because frankly, there is no competition.
    However using glue and TIM on a 500 or 1000 dollar CPU is hard to sell :P

    Please keep Haswell overclocking in a thread more suited for that topic.

    Could've gone with 1600 memory though, seeing haswell has a 1600 memory controller. Oh well, it won't make that much difference.

    Intel i7 3770K @4.6ghz 1.25vcore(Delidded with CLP on die, MX4 on IHS/Sync) ~ EVGA ACX SC GTX 780 ~ Corsair H110 AIO Cooler(w/ 2x 140mm BGear Blasters) ~ Corsair AX1200 w/ 100.4amps on one +12v rail ~ 16gb (2x8gb) Kingston Beast HyperX DDR3 2400mhz CL11 w/ Kingston active RAM cooler ~ Samsung Pro 840 256gb SSD w/ Win 7 Pro 64 Bit + 64gb C300 + 3tb ancillary ~ Asrock Extreme6 Z77 8+4 Phase Motherboard ~ CoolerMaster HAF932 ~ Samsung 32" 1080p 120hz LED Desktop Monitor

    Thinking of dropping in a second 780. My temps never reach 60c on this rig with even higher voltage than I'm running for daily use. That cooler + delidding + bgears blaster + optimized TIM/case makes it unbelievable for temps.

    I'm adding it on EVGA mod rigs, current name is Megalodon.

    PS: I turn hyperthreading off for WoW but I keep the same overclock. I have different profiles for video editing, WoW, and general gaming. As you probably guessed, the rig is quite snappy, but a little loud with all the active cooling @ high rpm. I work in a room with a window unit AC so I couldn't possibly hear a jet engine, much less a computer, which is why I don't care. I used the vice and wood block method of delidding.

    well i finally released i've never posted a picture of my new cards/case yet.
    however contrary to common drunkenvalley picture tradition i decided i'd make the worst possible pc shot

    and for anyone wondering what these beasts can do my 24/7 overclock yields this http://www.3dmark.com/fs/765579

    I thaught you went for the hydrocoppers?

    Or is the whole custom loop out of the picture? :P

    With that particular case and the insane noise vs airflow ratios he's getting with those fans, I can't even see the point of going water lol.

    more like still waiting for waterblocks to release in EU.

    @xuvial you know i need water
    also define insane noise vs airflow ratio? because that improved allot with my new case.

    So this is a pixelated picture of my handicapable build that I was talking about a few pages back.


    GPU: GTX 770 Twin Frozr OC
    CPU: I5-4670K
    MoBO: MSI Z87-G45
    RAM: Corsair Vengeance pro 8GB@1600Mhz
    PSU: Fractal Design Integra R2 750W
    Cooler: H80i
    Case: NZXT Phantom(red)
    SSD: 840 EVO Basic- 120GB
    HDD: 2TB Seagate Barracuda
    Absolutely EVERYTHING went to shit and turned against me with this build.

    *My GPU is coil whining during load. It's so bad that my cat is spazzing out and I am soon to join her.
    *Hassfail seems to be idling at around 38-40°c despite my h80i, 200mm and 2x120mm fans throttling at max speed.
    So clocking seems to be out of the question...
    *I had forgotten to order my Scythe fans. Turns out to be alright since the h80i stockfans wasn't that bad, but still.
    *One of the sleeved 8pin extensions I ordered for my GPU was faulty so had to mismatch with a stock 8pin.
    *Had to position the h80's radiator upside down to avoid the 200mm top fan from interfering.
    *I bought an NZXT Phantom! What the hell was I thinking...

    I can't stress enough how poor design the NZXT Phantom has. Only buy the Phantom if you're also buying custom watercooling, modular PSU and A LOT of extension cables. Don't even think about it otherwise, you will get butthurt! My picture perfectly illustrates why.

    Will have to RMA the chassi, GPU, sleeves and perhaps even the CPU so I'm fairly pissed right now.
    But anyway, that is my current gaming build so I just have to live with it for now.

    The graphics card was so big i didn't have a choice about getting the new case lol

    Nice build, that case is pretty rad looking. I used Scythe fans in an old build and found them absurdly loud. I put 4 Cougar Turbine 120mm fans in my current rig and they were silent at max speed with 60 CFM each of air flow. I think that the best fans I have ever owned up until this point have been Xigmatek and Cougar as far as air flow and noise rating.

    I know right? I have the same card and am glad I did not get a 770 because it would not clear in my Silverstone Grandia, the power connectors are quite literally next to the mounting section for the drives.

    Err that's pretty normal, my i5 2500K idles around that with an H100. Corsair's Hydro coolers don't do particularly well when it comes to idle temps, it's load temps where they take the lead - it's load temps that matter.
    Check load temps with P95, overclock accordingly, you can let Haswell run well into the high 80's for comfortable everyday usage.

    Also can't your 200mm top exhaust be moved further towards the front of the case? I can see it's job is to vent out the H80i's intake air, but in that position most of the H80i's air will be flowing completely past it.

    Sucks about the rest of the stuff not coming together though

    Yeah it looks amazing, one of the few perks with that case. Cool, might check those fans out when ordering new stuff.

    It just seems so high for stock clock on water.

    Haven't had time to run P95 yet so that's happening tonight while sleeping, 8 hour or so should be enough to determine if running too hot.
    Also can't your 200mm top exhaust be moved further towards the front of the case? I can see it's job is to vent out the H80i's intake air, but in that position most of the H80i's air will be flowing completely past it.
    It can be moved another slot forward, yes. I'm not sure how effective it is yet but planning to try it as you suggested tomorrow.

    Also another reason I decided to put the 200mm right there is to help with the GPU. The 2x120mm fans on the side that is supposed to do that is positioned directly in front of the HDD cages(Imo, another design error on the phantom.) so they don't really do their job. It just seemed more logical to sacrifice aesthetics for performance at the time.

    Jevlin - Haswell runs hotter than Ivy and since Intel decided not to use fluxless solder like with Sandy, instead they use TIM, temps are extremely hot. Only way to get better temps is to delid. Don't bother RMA'ing the CPU. More info here : http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...p-Post-Results

    Nah, his is also caused by a pretty awful batch. I'm getting ~32-35 °C idle on a silver arrow extreme at 4.5 (1.28V because sigh).
