What do you guys think about me using my Danger Den waterbox plus and the 240 mm Rad set up I have cooling the CPU? If I leave the GPU's on air, will they operate too hot?

My plan is to us my 240 Radiator listed in the link below, and my pump that I have and make a really strong loop covering the cpu. I will do this and then be set for any future water cooling mods.

Now I need to spend another $550


post #44 of 66
Have you ever changed the water in your loop or cleaned out the radiator in your current system?

Also you can Price match the 4770k microcenter price @ staples, for $269. Just sign up for the rewards first so you get the free 2 day shipping. Then call or go in store and tell them youd like to price match an item. Plus they have coupons like last week they had a 15% off coupon.

In your watercooling loop what pump do you have?

With the extra $ I would do 1 of two things.

Get a better monitor because 2x780s is being wasted on 1080p 60hz.

or

Upgrade your water. New cpu block, gpu blocks, and a d5 vario pump.



If you combine both ideas and drop one 780 keep your old monitor you would have a pretty good rig.

I just built a similar rig for a friend but I got him the classified 780 which is a beastly overclocker.

Lastly, you said you don't overclock so you don't really need a water cooling loop at all. Watercooling helps cool hot components which usually means they are overclocked.

Yea, I have changed it about 2-3 times in 2yrs time. I think the pump I have is a d5 pump, it has a variable adjust. 1-5.

Honestly, I am at the point of exhaustion. I have been researching parts and stuff for 3 days. Im ready to just buy a case like the carbide 540, and throw in the above parts, and add a coolermaster glacier 240l for the cpu and leave the rest air cooled. Thoughts? I would like to learn to overclock but man time is important to me. SO much that I am almost willing to buy a premade system from cyberpower or digital storm
