Ok, guys, I think the majority of you lean clearly towards the GO FOR IT option, so that's exactly what I'll be doing. I just hope the Hyper X doesn't have any conflicts with the EP-8RDA3+ board.
Anyways, while you guys decided wether or not I should be able to get 200x11 on my current cooling setup, I decided to play it safe and use a little of what I have lying around here... hehehe
I have an old TT Volcano 7+ full copper HSF around here, which in my book is one of the best heatsinks I've ever used temp wise, even if it does sound like a Citation V is under my desk which is the ONLY reason I replaced it with the Mech/SK-7 combo I currently have. Soooo after hacking my brains to the max, I decided to invest a little on the 7+, exactly $17 dollars more which is a lot less than any other new setup I would've gotten. What did I get for my hard earned $17? A nice 70 to 92mm fan adapter and a 64CFM/34dba 92mm Enermax UC-9FAB adjustable fan to put on top of it.
I think this hybrid will be able to hold its own against most of the extreme air-cooled setups around here, but I guess we won't know until it's up and running.
What do you guys think of this??? I know this is more properly a "Cases and Cooling" question, but hey, It's still CPU we're discussing here! hehehe Please feel free to share your thoughts on this, I'm really excited myself.
