Need a bit of advice for cooling choice.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm looking at the iBuyPower Revolt SFF PC and need a bit of help with the cooling options. I would prefer to stay away from liquid cooling, but that is why I'm here. I need to know if the air cooling option would be sufficient enough or if I would have to bear with liquid cooling. Here is a link to it: http://www.ibuypower.com/Info/revolt/home.aspx

Thanks in advance.

I would spend the extra money and get the asetek unit with a silent fan if you are going with an i5 or an i7. With an i3 this is not necessary.

I plan to get the i5-3350P and the GTX 660, as I don't forsee myself needing overclocking.. I'm coming from a pentium 4, no way I can see a slow down there! I just have little experience with liquid cooling, and the experience I do have was very bad.

Edit: I guess a good question I could ask is what would the downside to liquid cooling be, if any?
