You do know that RAMsinks don't actually do anything and are just for looks, right?

I didn't know anyone really considered the H series to be a gateway to custom loops at all. I thought everyone knew they were just an alternative to air?

I personally think custom loops are a waste of money though. The performance gains could have been achieved with simply buying better equipment in the first place. So unless you are using top of the line already..

H80 if you have a small case and don't mind noise

NH-D14 if you like silence and can fit it

I really feel WC setup are very sary for me coz of the fast of leaks

my friend had a WCing system and his pc sparked and his SSD,GPU and Motherboard was fried instantly i mean i aint agaisnt WC but it comes with the risk

when i do something with my PC i know i shouldnt risk it

maybe thats why all recommend 1k PSU even when 580 sli an be done on 850W

i would love to jump to WCing when its like air cooling and companies like corsair are making it move in that direction where u buy a product and there aint any risk for you

i can now feel many companies coming in this field and also GPU's also would be WC easily in coming years from manufactueres itself

just my opinion

I don't want to discourage anyone from getting one of these, but to open there minds to custom loop kits.

Its just as "Elitist" to sit there and down talk Conventional Watercooling.
There is no reason why Custom kits shouldn't be mentioned here.
They are Very effective and not nearly as risky as people make them out to seem.

I suppose. Although I'd imagine if you were to over volt your memory then they would serve some purpose right?

Not really, DDR3 runs at such low voltages that gigantic, extra-tall heatspreaders do very little in terms of actual cooling.

Standard voltage for DDR3 is 1.5 or 1.65V. Even if you ran your DDR3 at 1.9V, it is still low enough of a voltage not to require a heatspreader.

Back in the day, OCZ VX DDR500 ran 2-2-2-8 timings at 3.3V, and you could run it at up to 3.9V with the included RAM booster. Even at those voltages, it needed no more than a basic heatspreader. It's a bit unfortunate that RAM companies have gotten into an arms race to see who can make the biggest heatspreaders for their RAM when such huge heatspreaders do little more than look nice (and create compatibility issues with heatsinks).

An important feature of the d14 that you don't get with the H80 is the cooling of the components around the socket (140mm fan pushes under the second tower). It's a tough place to get good airflow to without a standard hsf.

I completely disagree! The fact that the H80 (and most other water-cooler solutions) have such a low profile on the CPU compared to any heat-sink/fan combo that the whole area around it is open to any air movement to cool it in any way you choose. Any air cooler (even the stock one) will create dead spots in the air movement unless you have something specifically to reach them. Big air coolers cause a lot of dead spots in the chassis or air flow in unwanted directions unless they have those fans designed to combat that problem - and that is why they are so heavy and bulky.

3.3Ghz is no test

i want to see 3.6 minimum

rather 4Ghz though.
Full Steam Ahead!
