  1. The h90 has worked a treat, got it when the stock cooler (i had been meaning to chance since I built the thing back in 2011) started being very ineffective at the start of this year, hitting 90-98 in basic games like league of legends so I got a bit worried that i was cooking the cpu. The was before I switched on inbuilt overclocker on motherboard, was amazed that between stock speed and the 1000htz the bios profile added I only saw a 5 degree increase in temps. Thx to all those who gave advice to a new forum member, I think ill hold off getting anything until the new cpus are released.
  2. Maybe I should... hmm it is currently running the (performance) profile built into the motherboards bios, I might have a go overclocking the thing myself and see what it can realy do. Currently under 100% load on all cores running a 3d render after 13mins only one of the cores reached 60 3dmark firestrike extreme pushed it to 58-59 so if got a lot of room temperature wise to play with.
  3. I am also a qualified architectural technologist and will hopefully be running 3d modelling renders. Hopefully in that I am still looking for a job in that crosses fingers.
  4. oops i see my blunder, 5820k is what I meant good catch.
