8350 oc'ed at 8.79ghz on water lmao
It's the same if you think about it... The only difference is the time that takes for rising the temperature... Water cooler takes longer, but after a few hours, it will be at the same temperature than the air cooler in a half of the time, but they will reach the same hotness
You need to take EVERYTHING on this site with a grain of salt. A lot of information is inaccurate. This site is really just good for giving a BASIC comparison.
Was thinking the same thing, how is the air cooled better then water?
Is the 8320e that horrible in water? Or is that a mistake from cpuboss?
