New to Watercooling, looking for some advice

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone!

I'm wanting to move onto watercooling with my current rig, but I am a little unsure of what I would need to get.

I'm looking to cool both of my videocards and CPU.

I am SLI'ing some 670 FTW's and using a i7 980x. Also, this is housed in a Phantom 820.

There is a 700$ budget for this so any advice or part recommendations would be appreciated!!!

Welcome the dark world of watercooling I would recommend that you get something like a kit XSPC RX 240. And add a 420 Radiator on the top.

But even before you jump into that, read as much as you can on water cooling and the basics and what each terms means, And how much water cooling you need.

here is a good read - http://www.overclock.net/t/913181/water-cooling-guide-for-noobs

Go to the forums of the case you own and see how and what other people have done.

Again, just because I pointed a kit does not mean you buy it. DO NOT buy anything till you have your research done.
