To be 100% honest, I don't really need to achieve a massive overclock. the 3930K is already exceptionally fast so even a modest 4.5Ghz would be faster than anything I'd ever need for the near future and that should be very easily achievable with water. But even still, this chip gets, very, very hot so water seems like the best option.
My main deciding factor (other than heat and cool looking) is noise - if you heard what my 2 5870's sounded like when being taxed on a high end game, it's horrible. I also like to play late at night so quietness is a big thing for me.
I'm looking at this build as my Dream build. I want all of the bells and whistles as chances are this will be the last time i go for a build like this.
