    All right good to hear you got it figured out.

    I will suggest to use realbench for stress testing. Real temp does not put any kind of load on your cpu.

    http://rog.asus.com/rog-pro/realbench-v2-leaderboard/

    Open up realbench and real temp.

    On realbench click on stress test, turn it white and select how many GB of ram you have, the 15minute test is fine. Click start and monitor your temps with real temp. If the temp goes over 90c stop the test immediately.

    All you really need to change is the cpu core ratio and the cpu core voltage. The higher you go with your overclock the more voltage you will need to sustain stability. Increasing the voltage will increase your temps and temperature controls how far you can overclock your cpu.

    I like to go by gaming temps and when gaming you don't want to see any higher than 70c - 75c although the lower the better. You can also download rog cpu-z to monitor the core voltage to see how far it's over volting compared to what you set in the bios. if it's over volting alot you can use offset to combat this.

    http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/...PU-Z-ROG.shtml

    For the longevity of your cpu try and stay at 1.40v or below but as you can see I'm at 1.45v.

    I also ran Prime95. But how long should I run the test? I also usually do not sit here while the test is running unless it is a short test. I have plenty of stuff to do to keep myself busy around here.
    Also with this board the max recommended voltage is like 1.4 and that is even pushing it. Some people have reportedly achieved a high OC with that voltage but most of the time they turn it down.

    I take you know a lot about water cooling. Do you mind helping me out on the parts I would need to purchase to get the XSPC Rampage 4 Black Waterblock Set up and running in my system with the H240x I have?
    Or would it be easier just to contact Swiftech?

    All you should really need is that water block kit, 4barbs/clamps or compression fittings, some tubing and probably some new coolant. Thermal compound and thermal pads should come with the kit as needed.

    The tubing and fittings are replaceable so the tubing size will be determined by the size of the barbs/fittings you choose or visa versa. ALL barbs today are G1/4" thread but you can go up to 5/8" - 1/2" for the tubing.

    You can use compression fittings for a nicer look, there are a variety of compression fittings to choose from if you're after a certain look but cost more than barbs and clamps.

    If you go with 1/2: ID tubing this is an example of the barb you would want to use. it's 1/4" on the threaded end and 1/2" on the tubing end.

    http://www.amazon.com/XSPC-Fitting-B.../dp/B00NODE9T8

    If you go with 1/2" x 3/4" tubing and want to use compression fittings they must be the exact size, here is an example of a compression fitting for that size of tubing.

    I actually like these and come in different colors.

    I would need help for with fittings and tubing, and also what the advantages of going with different size tubing. I have plenty of Arctic Silver thermal paste. I purchased one of the XL tubes a while back when I first started putting this system together. I like those red ones (prefer blue more) but would I need 4 of those for each of the fittings?

    How about starting a new thread in the general hardware and overclocking section, we can do it there instead of taking up this overclocking thread.

    Sound good?

    I am having an issue with my OCing attempts. It seems my vcore voltage is much higher than what it should be.
    I increased my OC to 4.4 ghz and the voltages were to high with the vcore running at 1.375.
    On the advice of the others who have the same 4930k chip and RIVBE board as I do they say that is way to high.
    I defaulted the bios (with XMP enabled) and it showed a low voltage of 1.136
    At 4.0 OC I get 1.138
    But when I hit 4.1 ghz I get 1.328 on the vcore.
    I went directly to 4.3 and it stayed at 1.328
    I tried setting the vcore manually while at 4.4ghz and it would not even boot up until I got close to the 1.375.

    What does this indicate and is there a way to get better numbers?

    It could be that you have a below average cpu, not all cpu's are created equal so voltage will vary from cpu to cpu. What you can do is ,set the vcore to auto and the core ratio to 44. Boot to windows open up cpu-z and see what core voltage cpu-z is showing and that will give you an idea of what your cpu needs for 4.4GHz.

    You can also run a stress test to see what voltage it's drawing under load.
