Glad that I could help smile.gif

2) to leave as many motherboard fan headers free to control all the fans I had in the system

wink.gif

You see the problem is that if I use CAM to controll fans it will slow down pump as well even if its connected to full v12 thru molex to 3 pin adapter. Its like CAM override pump with his settings. I allready ordered Nzxt sentry mix 2 for all those fans ( yes, sentry have 4 pin connectors and 30W per channel ) as if I use motherboard headers u have fans running full speed at system start and running like this till speedfan opens. Now I will connect all to fan controller and set fans manually to 30% / 60% / 90% if needed and thru CAM I will ramp up both pumps to run 100% as im not sure if pump will run at full speed without CAM but I think yes coz there will be no software to overrite this setting. What do u guys think?

I have a question guys.

I currently have the NZXT Kraken G10 and Corsair H55 attached to my 780Ti, don't see temps higher than 57c which i'm happy with, don't think i can get it any lower.

Anyways, sometime this year i plan on updating my graphics card and i've noticed you can already get 980Ti's with AIO coolers built into them, my question is are these as good as custom modding a G10 onto the card? Would certainly be easier to buy it ready to go. Just checking for the future.

Thanks.

To me an AIO is an AIO. Im sure they are decent units. So get what you want. Again the beauty to me isnt so much that AIOs are that great at cooling, its that they are great at dumping heat out of the case. That OEMs have recognized this is good and it will allow for better future performance. Just my opinion.

One reason i like g10 is i get the chance to tinker and do it myself that's the fun part.

True, rather than dumping the heat into the case it dumps it out of the case.

I think i'll prob go with a ready modded option in future, so long as the reviews are good. Thanks.

I guess it is fun to do but the primary reason for me is lower temps, so being able to plug and play and have low temps straight away is more convenient for me personally than having to spend time tinkering and potentially remounting etc.

This seems like one of the best options for the 980Ti now.

The only thing that would maybe worry me is how quiet is the fan cooling the VRMS, the one with the G10 is pretty silent.

Is it possible to use the seidon 120v or aquachanger 120/240 on the g10 ?

Nope, it has to have a round asetek style pump/block.

I was wondering how you guys who also have a CPU AIO have the air directed in your case? I have an H440 and was thinking of using this layout:

You shouldnt use aio radiators as intake. Put corsair on top and nzxt on the back as exhaust. Slow down radiator fans and put both intake fans as high as u can ( not makeing them too loud ) to make possitive preasure. That should be the best option considering cold airflow in your case.
