Get the gigabyte X79 UP4. Should jump to 2 7970s while you're at it!
I have the 3820 and single 7970 all watercooled right now. Hopefully by summer I'll have my second 7970 in the loop.
I have the same RAM except the black low profile version. It works very well when OCing the 3820.
Make sure to grab the seasonic x850 or x750, or the corsair ax850. I'd want the best psu possible to power it.
What cooler were you looking at getting?
whoa whoa blue, calm down bud, i been out of the loop for a minute.
im assuming the UP4 is a better video card?
ive seen reports of the 3820 overclocked to 4.7 stable with air cooling. is that accurate?
and what is this seasonic x850?
i cant look up too much out here except the mobile version of TD.com, so forgive me if i cant do my own research.
as far as water cooling i know absolutly nothing about it so whatever yall can clue me into would help tremendously
