V1.5 is alot better. Plus I'm learning other tips, reading the RF-X thread.

What does a closed-loop watercooler run, cost wise ?

Did you read the thread about Shader Caching? That really helped me but it does slow down start up because it has to recreate the Shaders each time you start RF-X. But for me it's worth it because it really reduces the little jitters that happen when flying around.

I like the Corsair H100i Pro at around USD 120.

Just make sure you have space for the radiator and its easy to install and the CPU heatsink comes with thermal paste pre applied.

There are plenty of install videos.

Of course you can go for a triple RGB radiator but expect to pay 250 USD.

You can then safely overclock your CPU without thermal issues pretty much. Thermal issues is what holds these CPU's back. I have not had any thermal throttling with this cooler.
