You may not know how to build a computer, but we do. No one on this planet will ever be able to build a computer to your complete satisfaction but you (that is, with the help of Overclock.net). Plus, building it yourself creates an attachment between you and your computer that you will never have if someone else builds it. If someone else builds it, then it will always just be "another computer". If you build it, then it's yours.

Everyone on this site who builds their own computers did not know one single thing about building computers at one point or another. I am one of them, and now so are you.

Yes, there is a risk of leaking. To be honest, if you don't want to build your computer yourself, then I recommend staying away from water cooling.

Then I'll describe my system:

I have 4 case fans: a front intake, a rear exhaust, a top exhaust, and a side panel exhaust. All of them are wimpy 120mm 1200 RPM fans (they are very lame, but they are pretty bright LED fans). This is more than enough for my system.

I have the Thermaltake Frio on my i5-2500k.

My GTX 580 is the ASUS DirectCU II version.


With my i5-2500K overclocked to 4.8GHz, it doesn't overheat. Ever. When I'm playing a very demanding game like Crysis or Crysis 2 (that is, Crysis 2 maxed out with DX11 and High Res Textures enabled), nothing overheats. Ever.

So again: I think watercooling is absolutely unnecessary unless you want to do some extreme overclocking. 4.8GHz with the 2500K isn't extreme at all: it's more average. I don't have my GTX 580 overclocked because I don't need to.

You don't "need" watercooling, but it is fun to play with. For a cheap starter kit, I recommend the XSPC Rasa RS 240 kit, jab-tech has them in stock right now, as I'm sure any other cooling website would too. I have one with my i5 2500k, and it keeps it plenty cool, it was fun to setup, and if you do it right then you won't have leaks. Although there is still a chance it could happen I suppose, but very unlikely if you install everything correctly, and leak test.

My favorite part about watercooling is obviously the temps, but I also like not having a huge mammoth of a heatsink taking up space in my case, making it difficult to access other components.

Watercooling is usually pretty optional. It's more of a toy that can be fun to have. I am personally not interested in watercooling.

Anyway, I have no gaming performance issues at all. Like I said, I haven't overclocked my GTX 580 simply because I don't need to.

If you build it yourself, then you will be much happier with it than you otherwise would be if you have someone else do it.
