    Buy one of those delidding tools. Its not a waste of money to buy a liquid cooler for your cpu, its not like you cant use it on your next cpu.

    Do you really think so?
    In reviews, air coolers are just a bit underperforming in comparison to AIO.

    Interesting, what would be more usefull delidding or swapping Noctual u14s to...something 280mm rad. AIO?
    But I think, if the difference will be +/-3c, that's not worth it, neither delidding nor the cooler swap.

    Thats for you to decide, I have seen a couple people lately in the forums say their delid didnt give them a very good temp reduction but they could have screwed it up cause most people get a 10-15 degree reduction with delid. I want to delid just havent got around to it yet.

    I think watercooling is definately the way to go, at least with the cpu if not the gpu also!

    Yes, there are good chances to screw up with deliding.

    I would like to water-cool my GPU. Having that heavy radiator hanging on the motherboard...
    But that water-loop making is quite an expensive thing.

    I guess my next rig will 100% have an AIO, with this one I'm not so sure.
    My air-cooler handles ok for now.
