I was tooling around with my new setup. I was shooting for the 4GHZ cause I'm greedy. I got close,but I think I ned a beefier cooler.

I got my new rig up and going. I started off with air cooling and was trying to get 4GHZ out of it. I was close, but it couldn't stay chilled on the stock cooler. I posted my CPUZ results.I want to get 4.3-4.5 out of my setup. I switched the the corsair H100. I have read a lot of reviews where people are keeping temps down with this cooler. I don't know what all settings I should play with to get my setup stable. I want to move a little bit at a time and not just jump to high and get frustrated. I am new to liquid cooling. I have made many succesful overclocks with air colling in the past. I'm not afraid of toasting something (it happens), but If someone has some experience with thubans I would appreciate a nudge in the right direction.

I have the exact same CPU as you do and i got mine up to 3.8GHz. I could get it at 4.1GHz with a high bus speed but when the cpu was under load, it would crash which means it wasn't fully stable. If your trying to achieve a overclock of 4.3 to 4.5, that won't be easy. By having the same cpu chip, it doesn't mean it will overclock the same frequency since every chip is different. So my 1090T could possibly overclock higher then your 1090T if i was a better overclocker :P Other factors to consider when overclocking is by the cooling, not just the cpu cooling but the MOSFET cooling. Some motherboards like mine don't have the MOSFET heatsink which makes it a bit harder to overclock and higher risk of overheating. In the BIOS, by having lots of options to overclock, you can possibly achieve higher frequency with such motherboards that has many options like the Asus ROG motherboards.

In essence, any chip when combined with the same hardware, should overclock to the same speed when overclocked by people of equal skill. Keep in mind you have to also take into affect motherboard chipset, BIOS options, chipset (mosfet) cooling like killer suggested, as well as overall cooling. Especially with air cooling-you need to also keep in mind the cooling in the case and outside air temperature can all come into play. a $200 aftermarket cooler may not do the trick if the air going into the case is already at 100 degrees fahrenheit, it will defeat the purpose. The better cooling in the case the better the overclock-I have seen people with a well ventilated case and stock CPU heatsink out overclock someone with a aftermarket heatsink due to this fact. Proper air flow and case cooling are very very important-as important as the hardware yet many people forget about this.

Well, I experimented for about 2 hours last night andI hit 4.3 ghz. I was having problems keeping it stable so I backed off it a tad and I will play with it some more in the future. This is where I am currently at.
