Upgrade?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I currently have an Asetek 510LC with 2x Sharkoon Silent Eagle SE on push/pull (exhaust), stock 200mm NZXT top fan (exhaust), 1x Sharkoon Eagle SE at the front (intake), 2x Sharkoon Eagle SE on the side (intake) and am getting idle temps of 37C with a room temp of 25C. If it was your system, what would you upgrade to? Thanks in advance.

Upgrade to a full custom loop would be the best idea. With the water cooling kits like the Asetek the is very little room for improvement except for fan upgrades. if you want to stick with the Asetekiset some fans with a higher static pressure / speed.

Thanks. I haven't got a clue what I would need to get though.

What max temps are you getting? For mild overclocking that would suffice I just don't know how good your fans are because I joined the gentle typhoon bandwagon already lol. Are you planning on cooling your videocard as well? If you are and you want a custom loop you have to "reboot" all your WC parts.
