    Very nice. Its builds like these that make me actually want to look at my computer instead of hide it in a closet.

    quick 3dmark11 extreme run, upping the cpu @5ghz , 1.4V. Keep in mind that my daily config is 4.8Ghz 1.280V.

    and 3dmark extreme run

    [​IMG]

    fans at 70%, room temperature 24 - 25 degrees celsius

    Usually, gaming temperatures doesn't exceed 39 - 40 for the gpus and 50 - 60 for the cpu

    edit: added a Realbench run

    You should have no problem hitting 1600 core on your 980 under water. Yes you'll very likely have to up the volts a bit, but it's nothing too extreme.

    I reached 1560 giving 1.3V, it could reach it with a little less i guess, all done by bios mod (i mod my own vbios to my liking). As fas as i know the max allowed voltage from the vrm is 1.312V or i'm wrong?

    I've yet to find a software that properly report the gpu v-core, since no matter what, the max any software will read is 1.275V.

    How much voltage do you sugest for 1.6Ghz?

    I cannot get any information on the internet about max safe voltage for gtx980 (24/7) under water.

    Any insight?

    Not sure either but I really wouldn't want to go past 1.3V for 24/7 use.
