What Should I Improve? Get Your Creative Caps On - Page 3

okay i found the button and clicked save and finish. and @shozzking great idea. I may go with the red I was looking into earlier. then use the money I saved and upgrade the GPU. I'm happy with my 2500k and I havent even OC'd yet. Then Look into some custom water cooling with a red theme.

and it will beat the hell out of your intel stock hsf
at the very least get a dh14 with some good fans in push/both/pull

i would sli the 480's and get a custom loop with a 240 and 1 or 2 120mm fans, or even go with a chiller.

Weird.

But that is an option as well. Painting the cover is done.

If you don't want to sink money into watercooling, the H100 or the DH14 are very capable. Should do 4.7+GHz. Then put the money towards a better GPU and sell the 460 for more money.

I really like the paint job this guy did on his motherboard heat shield.

I really want to go with a custom loop from swiftech and set everything to a color scheme(of red of course.)


On a side note, Someone should let a mod know that the "insert URL" option in the editor is messed up. it places brackets in the wrong places and url's wont show up unless you fix the placement yourself.

I would look into the XSPC RASA kit. There are a few variations of what radiator you can get (from a thin 120 (RS120) all the way to a thick 360 (RX360)). The RS240 kit should work pretty well for you and it fits in most mid-tower cases. I would get some better tubing and fittings but overall its a very solid kit.

Anything that fits 1156 will fit 1155, the mounting brackets are identical.
