New to the thread. Questions about cooling setup.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys. Iv been building and overclocking for some time now. And i want to get some ideas about cooling in my new rig.

Rig:
I7 6700K at 4.6
Cooler is NZXT Kraken x61
Corsair 2400 DDR4
MSI z170a Gaming m5 Motherboard
NZXT H440 case
Graphics Windoforce GTX 760 ( will be either GTX 1070 or GTX 1080 soon)

Currently im using the Kraken x61 as my CPU cooler mounted to the top of the H440. I was wondering where i could mount an x41 for a graphics card using the nzxt G10 mount later on. Has anyone done this? If so what configurations are doable?

Thank in advance!

I have not done this, but the cpu rad up top and gpu rad on the back exhaust could work assuming there is enough clearance, if there isnt try moving the cpu aio to the front and just have fans up top or empty, aside from that do cpu up top and gpu up front in the middle or bottom fan slot. Whatever the tubes work best in really, dont want them getting pulled too much. Might take a little bit of testing and experimenting to find the perfect setup. hope this helps a bit.
