Just noticed the evo 212 does not support socket 1150 (Haswell). Bummer.

CMs page disagrees.

This is good news. The video i just watched only displayed 1155 support.

Serious overclockers don't use cheap closed loop setups ;)


Which is what I said in my first reply. 


water cooling is for silence. and don't necessarily cool better than air unless you have a custom built setup. 


Arguably if you're a serious silence fan you need a custom water cooling setup then to since you'll want to cool the CPU, Chipset, and VGA, and if you're extreme the PSU.   and if you're an overclocker you throw in the RAM and stuff. And then you throw in an external radiator tower and you have a overclockable super silent monster.
