Hello everybody! Upgrade questions wanted.

I already own most things on this list, other than the CPU (which i plan to overclock), GPU and the watercooler. Now, i have two questions;

  • If i was to move the rear case fan to the front, and run the 120mm rad on the back on the case, would i see any improvements in temperatures, or do i just change my case to something like the versa h23
  • Would i experience much bottlenecking on the 460 + 880k oc to 4.2-4.4 ghz?

Thanks in advance

For the price I would not go for that CPU cooler- air ones are around the same price but will offer better temperatures.

It should do yes.

I can't really tell how bad the bottleneck will be just from looking(in most cases), but you should get a better CPU, and a 470 instead if you can buy it.

i can understand your POV, but at this point i would need a new motherboard, and then an extra 60 for the 470. But from what i can see there is very little difference

and if you could build a machine sub £500 with a cooler?

That would be a little more feasible.

However I recommend that you don't do upgrades in small amounts. It saves you money in the future. It's more cost benefit to make a larger purchase for the long run, than several small purchases in the short run.

Especially when the stuff you're upgrading to isn't very good either.
