So confused. Closed circuit cooling?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi there!
A little while ago, back in January, my girlfriend put together a build to replace my old as a birthday present.

I managed to get the old broken case upgraded to a NZXT 630 on Friday and when I got the time to move stuff over today, my CPU cooler broke down. I thought it was time to upgrade to a closed circuit cooling system.

Preferably, I'd want something that actually fits the dimensions of my case, but me and numbers don't mix that way.

I'm using the AMD FX-8350 CPU OCed to 4.8 Ghz on a MSI 990FXA-GD80 motherboard. My budget on this is about $100.
What's available on the website I use is Corsair's H55, H60, H70, H80i, H90, Cooler Master's Eisberg, Seidon 120XL, Saidon 240M, NZXT's Kraken X40 All-in-One and Silverstone's Tundra TD03.

I'm not really sure which would fit my case or which you guys would recommend. They are all just confusing me completely.
Any help would be appreciated to a newbie!

First of all you mean a Closed Loop Cooling system
Secondly I would definitely go for the Corsair H80i as it is a very solid cooler.

Ah, you are probably right! Thank you for pointing that out. =)

Would the H80i fit inside the case? In terms of putting the fan on the back. I guess I could remove the 140mm in the back and place the H80 fan and another 120mm there instead,.

Thanks for the reply!

you would be best putting the h80i there in push pull as an exhaust (blowing out of the case) and using the top two fans intakes to feed it.
