What PSU does he have? sory i did not understand what you where trying to say.

What PSU does he have?

That 750AX Corsair. Soon as he popped it in he stared scoring low. I dont want to hijack this guys thread but by my calculations he only has enough power to run the two cards and a spike in psu. Right? PSU is good for what, 680w? But I never liked that PSU anyway. Way overpriced

My first custom loop



Srsly, went right to hardline. We are all here for you and there is no such thing as a dumb question. As long as you have a good pump (we'll tell you if you need two, but not likely) you'll be just fine. Its intimidating at first but after I was done I was sort of mad at myself for buying AIO's. EK makes some great kits btw. If you cant tell, I have an affinity for EK products (my current setup is all EK blocks as well)

If I`d have the option to go back in time and decide again if I want to watecool or not, I would go back to air no questions asked, water really doesnt give you much anything over air, just more hassle with maintenance and draining the loop when changing parts, and its hella expensive rolleyes.gif

But if you spend some extra money going for the ultrawide 100hz gsync display you really SEE the difference everytime you launch a game thumb.gif

I absolutely love the look of the hardline cooling, and definitely want some form of water cooling. Can you suggest a kit that would be sufficient for my setup? As well as any good guides?

I currently have a very wide monitor, I actually was specifically trying to go smaller because its hard to see things on the peripheral edges while gaming I also wanted the 165hz to take advantage of all the badass hardware im getting.

I have mentioned a few reasons why I do not want air cooling. Beyond that, ive seen the temp benchmarks of comparisons between air and water and you cannot tell me there isnt a significant difference.

Of course. Give me a little bit to grab the model numbers and makers of the kits as well as the guides. And naturally, you can always PM me too on anything that is not worthy of its own thread

EDIT: I need more than a few minutes. I have to do something quick. BUt in my reply to @claes below, Swiftech 220x or 240x kits Id def reccomend. The others are the EK kits. Be back with specifics shortly

You are misinformed my friend!

The Swiftech units are excellent, offer better support than those CLCs you're looking at, and only have real issues with user error. The vast majority of users have no issue, and you are able to expand the loop to the GPU, which is where most of your heat and noise will be coming from.

Also, air cooling handily competes with CLCs when you account for noise. Sure, if you don't mind your PC pushing out 60dB and the bottom line is performance/maintenance, go for it, but if you want sub-40dB at load and the bottom line is performance/noise, noise/performance, go for a proper loop or air.

He is correct on the Swiftech units. Or I at least share that opinion. They are the only AIO's I would recommend. When the x220's first came out I actually expanded mine to cpu+MB block and added hardline to it. I eventually went to single gpu+MB+cpu block+additional 240 radiator with it. The pump they use in those units is very good and you get a lot of good products inside that kit for the price. Actually, all the components of that kit are pretty good.
