Depends on your budget ... watercooling is a huge moneyhole.

Same price as what ?

Assuming you're cooling CPU + 2 GPUs ... you'll want the equivalent of 2x 360s at least ... add in minimum 6 fans, ideally 12 ...

Add in a CPU block $50, two GPU blocks $80-90 each ... fittings are $8 a pop, you'll need about 12 ...

You can see how it starts to add up quickly.

I have a non-reference 6950 2GB that I did the mod with. I'm not sure why the RAM would be important but you will need RAM sinks to help with the heat if you do the mod.

so there's quite a few questions amalgated in that cluttered paragraph but i'll do my best

1) Between the 620s and custom loop, the custom loop will perform moderately better (Depending how much money you put into a pump/rads)

2) You would need to buy heatsinks anyways for universal blocks so this cost can be ignored.

Here's what I have to say. If you already have an H100 on your CPU, and are happy with the temperatures, grab two 620s and two sets of heatsinks and have at her. The GPUs will be fine.

I was previously running an H100-CPU and Kuhler 920-GPU. I moved onto full custom loop because the h100 sucks for cpu cooling tongue.gif

If you don't overclock at all ... maybe ...

You won't have any headroom
