  1. I had a 6700k before upgrading this year. Did I really need to do it now!? No, not really! It's really hard to predict what will happen in the future with software developers. It really depends on what the market wants. As of right now 4 cores is fine but as more people get computers with more cores they will develop the software to take advantage of those cores. I would suggest enjoy what you got now and start saving up your money to upgrade down the road.
  2. It all really depends on your ambient temperature in your room1 and what your cpu requires for your overclock. I use a 360 rad and can run as low as 1.28v for 5.1MHz with turbo on a gigabyte z390 ultra. However, to hit 5.2HMz I have to use 1.36v with extreme LLC. For everyday use I use 1.30v with turbo LLC and stay in high 70's temp. when stressing the cpu. At 5.2 I get up into the low 90's for temp.. I also use 6 fans in push/pull so I can run them at a slower speed to keep things quiet. If you already have a h100i rad. I would say start with that and upgrade if needed. You might get a good cpu and not need any better cooling to get the overclock your happy with. Good luck and let us know how it works out for you.
  3. GPU is clocked 115MHz over stock and memory is 700MHz overstock. So, far the highest temp I have seen is 70c.
  4. I use Trixx v1.6.0 and have never had any problems.
  5. Yes it is. I went to Microcenter to get an ax860i. I got it off their website and went to pick it up. However, a sales person sold it. So, they offered me the 1200i for the same price.
  6. Just straighten out your wiring harness and get a better cpu cooler. Everything else looks good. Here is a link to give you some ideas on routeing wires in your case. http://www.techspot.com/review/1169-corsair-carbide-spec-alpha/
