Good case for water cooling? - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Thread Starter 
I see, so dual loop is overkill then. So single loop it looks like. I would like to also cool my mosfet (even though I have 8+2 phase with heatsink (mobo in sig). Is this overkill? If I'm going to get the HAF X, I would prefer to get the black with blue accents HAF 932. Is this version much different from the HAF X? How does this look for a loop?

Res->Rad->Pump->Mosfet(optional)->CPU->Rad2(optional, not sure if it would make any difference)->GPU1->GPU2->Res

Or would a parallel setup (split by t's) be better (cooling mosfet/cpu on one line, and gpu1/gpu2 on another)? Or still overkill? As far as the two rads, does it really help? Not worth the price? I have yet to do a water cooling build, everything has been air for now and based on my current temps I think I've maxed my potential when it comes to that, so I'm trying to see what an optimal setup for water would be.

Haf X is xl-atx capable, so I'd stick with it just in case you ever get the urge for an extremely large board.

I see, so HAF X it is for the case. Now I just have to plan out what I'm going to do with the actual water cooling. The main question I still have yet to find an answer to though, is with my cpu currently at 3.2GHz with turbo turned off, staying at 18C idle, and 28C under load, with air cooling. I plan to get a stable oc at 3.8-4.0GHz, would water cooling really be worth it? I don't plan to oc my gpus due to the fact they already run hot as it is, and ocing them really doesn't provide much added performance to the cards I'm looking at, from what I can see.
