New To Water Cooling...

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I have been doing a little bit of research about transforming my currently air cooled machine into a water cooled machine. The reason for this is me having to run my computer with no side on to keep it cool

This is my current set up...

Case - Corsair Obsidian 700d
CPU - Phenom X6 1100T Black Edition
GPU - MSi nVidia GTX 560 Ti
PSU - OCZ 800w
MoBo - Asus Crosshair Formula IV
Memory - Corsair Dominator GT 4gb ( 2 x 2GB )

If anyone else knows anyone who has done this for this case and similar setup i would greatly appreciate the help. I will get some pics up of my rig ASAP too help.

thanks in advance guys

I've lost track of what mine cost but roughly.. £250-300

Im going to need a link to the Graphics card that you have..

If what Ive posted there looks like too much, then you could go for a RASA 360 KIT as that will hold up the 560 just fine.

It means that you have to cool the memory, vrms your self, some stick on sinks and a fan blowing so air over them will be fine.
