I noticed the they are having overheating issues with the newer processors, both AMD and Intel when they get upwards into the 4 plus ghz range so I take it water cooling will be the next step up for all processors... right? I can't think of any other real options anyway.

 

Before I assume and screw up here..do most newer cases on the market today accept a water cooler inside the case? I notice the vents on top on a lot of them and some have case cooling fans there but I think they can be removed, if they are there at all ,and replaced with a radiator...right?

 

Makes me wonder if the size of these processors will ever be limited due to inability to cool them as water coolers will only help so much. It already seems they haven't been increasing the processor speeds as often as in the past. I have a 965 3.4 AMD (4 core) that seemed to be  doing the job just fine until I took it out of service around Christmas and I assume it would still do most anything and it's been around for a long time.

 

I guess what I'm saying is though they have the 4.7 ghz AMD, they say it's just an overclocked version of the 4.1 and runs hot as  heck so assuming, the 4.1 is really all they have moved up too in 2015 and the 956 3.4 came out in 09, that's only a 700mhz jump in 6 yrs so so the speed increase over time seems to be slowing tremendously. I also noticed the games seems to be leveling out and not changing their system requirements all that much over the last several years.

 

Anyway, I really just need to know about the cases being water cooler ready, the other is just thinking out loud. Maybe they'll redesign the motherboards as the processors seem to be able to take the heat and that will work for awhile anyway.
