Gettin a New WC, checkin if this looks good - Page 2

post #11 of 13
If you are water cooling for performance -> NO zalman

it will give you lower than air temps at idle, but load temps are comparable to a good air cooling system. Adding the GPU to the zalman = even higher temps, I had to move mine behind my case so my case fans would circulate air around the rad, this dropped temps by like 7c....still no comparison. When i swapped it out for my DD kit, I got almost 20c lower temp on my GPU and 12c lower on the CPU....

you decide which is better.

Cool, so I think I'm gonna go get this:

Just checking - it was talkin about a VGA cooler... that means it comes with a graphics card waterblock right?

oh...and the dual 120mm fan radiator fits on the back of the chasis... my front panel audio connectors dont work and i use the mobo's onboard audio... will that be a problem?

No thats just with the CPU block...You would have to get something like this to go along with that kit for the GPU...Swiftech MCW60 Extreme Duty VGA Water Block w/ MC14 Ramsinks (3/8" and 1/2" barbs)
