Help with cooling decision

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
I posted on this part of the forum asking which case to buy and you guys helped me decide on the 800d. Its awesome. Right now my cpu is on stock cooling at stock speeds and isles at 47 C, and I don't like to stress it because it goes over 80 C . I have 2 msi tf3 6950s that get ridiculously hot (top hits 90 then shuts down) even at 100% fan speed when they are in the 2 16x spots on my mobo, so I move the bottem one into the lower 8x spot. Now my temps are around 68 C for both gpus.

Ive been playing around with the idea of water cooling because my cpu is too hot and my gpus are too loud, and I was wondering if water cooling is the right route to go or just increase air flow in my case. But on the water cooling side of things I was wondering how cheap I can get my Cpu and Gpus under water. What I was thinking of was starting off with the rasa rx360 kit + the rx240 rad + 2 universal gpu block and heat sinks.

My main questions are can the rasa pump handle all that and I have no idea what gpu blocks are good or what ram heat sinks are good, I guess my bujget is $400, but if I can spend more over time.

Theres not much you can to improve airflow that case is terrible for aircooling, the rasa kit is capable but a paum with more head pressure is get better temps, be prepared to spend more than 400 if you choose full cover waterblocks, they cos 100% each.

you could always just try a large cpu cooler and heatsink along with some more fans. You could use a 250mm fan if your case supports it which will quietly move alot of air or you could go with this bad boy (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835706015) if you dont mind your computer sounding like a jet taking off. lol it will move a LOT of air tho and most likely really help with your heating problem. maybe even upgrade your current case fans as well...

What do you suggest for a cooler, also would aftermarket TIM help temps?
