    Doesn't change much though. Still well below even 60fps (hz).

    I get 70 fps average on singleplayer, switching over to multiplayer I get 110-120 fps most of the time.
    The graph shows a 270x getting 35 fps on singleplayer which doesn't mean anything, BF4 is a multiplayer game
    Also a 760 will easily get 50+ on 1080p in BF4.

    There is nothing wrong with AIO's, they perform good and take less space & make the build look better.

    Yes someone else mentioned BF4 gives more FPS in MP, so I thought it relevant to note that.
    Also, what is 'AIO'?

    AIO = All In One liquid cooler (H80i for example)

    Aha, I see, thank you

    Also I read that cheap/low quality liquid coolers might perform even worse than a decent air cooler? Unless you run some sort of cooling so that liquid is lower temp than room ambient temp.

    I'm just gonna take my H60 as example versus the Noctua NH-D14 which is one of the best air cooler available.

    Both run the same temperatures at load.
    The NH-D14 runs a little quieter, but nothing major.
    H60 will take MUCH MUCH less space compared to the NH-D14.

    The H60 will cost 49 $ while the NH-D14 cost 74 $.

    AOI takes less space, runs good temperatures & cost less.

    I gotta say those numbers are much more what i was expecting to get, and im still to clock CPU/GPU.

    As for AIO's, afaik they do produce similar performance to a strong air cooler but they look a lot better imo, lets you appreciate more of your build and ill probably incorporate one in my next build

    Nothing wrong with my AIO. Cools it just fine and it looks good.

    One of these days I'll actually build my own loop, but for now I'm to busy and to lazy to actually do it.

    NH-D14 is on its way. I ordered the LGA2011 by accident. Stock cooler = better than no cooler.

    Yeah, AIO's are more amazing/handy in small build applications though. You can squeeze them in just about every case and combine them with your exhaust fan.

    My newest addition, the AudioEngine D1:

    + AudioQuest Golden Gate RCA
    + AudioQuest Pearl USB

    I know there are better cables than AQ, but they're an affordable step up from standard wires. I gotta say, this is sounding quite divine. The D1 is very smooth sounding, not harsh at all (except for a few occasions, but I understand that's because it needs to be broken in).

    Careful with such broad statements, there are plenty bigger AIO cooling that won't fit in smaller cases.

    Nice DAC though, I might invest in one eventually.

    True, true. I meant 120/140mm AIO's, should've been more specific.
