    Default Swiftech GTZ and 4770k

    Hi,

    So I'm getting pc upgrade (yay!) but the hardware consumed my budget and don't really have more to spend. Now i found that I can buy bracket for my swiftech gtz to work with new sockets but I'm wondering whats your opinion on performance of it. Rest of the loop will be: MCP 355 pump, 360 rad (swiftech), mostfet block (on maximus VI) , 240 rad(swiftech), full cover gtx 570 block. What do you think i can swing with that setup for OC and cooling?

    Now i know I can delid the chip and put some new TIM on it, but not to keen to do it.
    BTW has anyone tried using dental floss for deliding? You know first you cut in with blade (just to make a start) and then you just put in the floss and cut in?

    Any thoughts as always appreciated

    Well as far as what you can swing that will entirely depend on the chip you get; Haswell is kind of a finnicky overclocker and the small manufacturing node means they produce a lot of heat really quickly. As for block performance I personally would opt for something like the Apogee HD if you wanted to stick to Swiftech parts as that's a pretty good block and retains mostly the same look as the block you presently have. That's just me though, and knowing how hot these new chips get you need every edge you can get when you're trying to overclock any more. Delidding I have only ever had to use a box-cutter blade and the lid comes off with no problems. Floss would probably be a bit safer though since if you pull through too far in and hit the die you'll be way less likely to damage it, it'll just take a bit longer to do is all.

    The GTZ designed for 775, Intel new generation CPU has different core design therefore the GTZ wouldn't be able to handle Hasswell.

    As for deliding; after you cut off the perimeter adhesive then just warm up the chip with hair blow dryer then pry off the lid from one corner to the others. The most important is don't push blade goes pass more than 6mm inside. You do know the warranty is void once you delided.

    My advice to get a new block for a fraction of the new 4770K is wise move than deliding.

    It's a good block but some people doesn't like the CSQ design. I did a review on it and also Koolance 380i is a good one as well.

    I think the 380i will better with Maximus VI due to black Acetal and nickle, it's match with the board stock mosfet block.
