Sellin the 1090 but I guess if I had to do it all over again I wouldn't have upgraded without better cooling (Unless I DO get $150 for it).
You can splurge on a Corsair H100 for $59 (if you dont mind the 10$ rebate) at tigerdirect,and if your case got the space to mount it.

Right now I run at 4ghz 1.248v (according to cpuz) on the stock cooler. Fine under regular workload (1300rpm mostly, jump to 2100rpm occasionally), but get to 4000 rpm running cinebench benchmark in a loop.
I measured 95w at the wall during idle (about 20w of that is the GPU + 16GB of ram), 226-258w(peak) under cinebench. (I have a feeling the motherboard VRM are not efficient at all)
Because of the high RPM, under full load of all cores, I'm actually getting that H100, and will run it on quiet profile to hopefully stay <65c under max load @ 4ghz.

And since I'm going to use this system full time, the u4 rack case is out, and this will be the new case
