Water cooling help.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello Everyone, I had a few questions about WC and what I need/ or what's better. I'm building a custom rig with the following:

Case: Rosewill Thor V2 (If you can suggest better for the Corsair H100 to fit, let me know)
Cpu: i7 3930k (I was gonna go with a CORSAIR H100, but I hear is not to set up with the case I chose). I also plan to OC my Cpu (to 4.4 or 4.5) once I get everything set.
Mobo: ASUS Sabertooth X79 LGA 2011 Intel X79
Ram: I was thinking G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) will work?
PSU: Will Corsair 850 HX maybe?
Video Card: EVGA Superclocked Signature 2 GeForce GTX 680 2GB

Anything else I missed let me know. I'm gonna be using this computer for rendering videos, gaming online and broadcasting. Thanks
Thor V2

The H100 is a decent all in one cooler so unless you are ready and willing to go custom loop that is fine. A custom loop would allow you to put that 680 under water as well but if that is too much for you then stick with the H100.

The H100 will let you OC to 4.4 or 4.5 GHz from a temp perspective. The rest of your choices are more personal preference and are all good companies so I do not see any issue. The 850 PSU is solid and plenty for a single GPU setup.

Good luck.

Thanks RatDog, will the H100 fit under the Thor V2 or will have problems with it (If so what case do you recommend that would make it easier? )Also what's the minimum for a custom loop?

No problem with mounting that H100 rad in the Roof. Ditch the stock 230mm fan that is supplied and use the pre drilled 2 x 120 mounts.. thumb.gif
