You don't have to water cool your cpu in order to water cool your gpu, or visa versa either.

It also wouldn't cost double. I'm not sure where you got that idea. To water cool a cpu and a 580, it would cost right around $250. That's an XSPC Rasa 750 RX240 kit with an EK full cover GTX580 block. Pretty much the best you can get for all parts considered.

My friendly suggestion is none of your concern.

If I were you I'd just sell the reference card with the cooler and then get two lightnings

I used to have an ft02 and I did think about using water cooling. But in my opinion, it's way too much hassle and you'd end up ruining the sleek design of the case

Two lightnings in SLI should be fine without the need to watercool. Plus, your case will still look sexy as hell tongue.gif

Oh I forgot to mention izym that if you did get the Lightning to add to your current triple slot AXP, you would want the AXP in the 'lower' of the two slots. This way you'd have a slot of space for the Lightning to breathe as opposed to if you did it the other way around the AXP would be trying to draw air in right up against the back of the Lightning.

Although I would love to do water cooling, I live in Denmark where things are generally more expensive. It would be more like $500 here. That's pretty much my monthly income. Your idea for water cooling FT02 is rather interesting though.

Indeed it would look sexy as hell, but I think I'll just start out by getting a single Lightning in addition to my reference card wink.gif

Yep, that's what I had in mind as well. It should have plenty of room to draw air from in that position.
