I need some help, im new to this..

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
How much would it cost me to buy a kit for my system..
I only want to have gpu,north bridge,south bridge , cpu cooled.

Do they make systems I can buy. My computer is below.

Or if not what is a cheap solution that I can BUY, not make lol.

I'll start ya off with suggesting don't waist you're money or time WC the north or south bridge. If you want a quality kit for just gpu,cpu, and have a reservoir. I'd give a rough estimate at about $420 because GPU blocks are expensive. You can cut corners by using a T line instead of a reservoir and buying cheaper stuff or look for deals. Things I’d recommend is a dual black ice GT rad and a D5 pump. I’d also recommend using 1/2inch ID throughout the loop since you want to cool a OC gpu with cpu.

I only have my cpu liquid cooled and I spent about $460 but I bought nice parts and went custom instead of those cheap kits.

Not sure how much you want to spend but you can get a decent kit for around 150. I have the Nautalis 500 and it works well. Got my E6600 up to 3.9 GHz and heat wasn't a problem. However you have to alter your ambient. Hopefully that helps.

so basically it is a less than average kit if you have to lower your room temp to get any good performance out of it? Usually you get what you pay for, unless you jump into things blind and get ripped off.

3.9 is not an easy OC to get no matter the Water Cooling your using

you just said "however you have to alter your ambient". Replace "you" and "your" with "I" and "my" and it would have made more sence.


THEoBZ: soloz2's suggestion would be the cutting the corners option. I was figuring in DD gpu blocks that cover the mem and core but his solution will work too. Its really what ever fits your budget and thats whats nice about custom kits. Because you can decide what kinda parts and how much your willing to pay.
