Just a thought.
Edit: I just back tracked from my post, I'm sorry for your loss too. Peace mate.
Thanks for the sentiment! I appreciate it.
The case itself as pictured is only cooling the CPU and without motherboard, CPU, System memory, and GPU, you're looking at $1,200 at least.
Obviously you could easily build an entire computer for that amount of money but not overclock it to 5.2ghz.
Even if you built a machine with a full custom water cooling setup that could actually run a 0 DeltaT, you still would not reach 5.2ghz, in the ambient cooling realm.
The GPU is independently cooled it has it's own pump, reservoir, and radiator and fans, and full coverage GPU water block, as there is really no need to Chill Water Cool a graphics card so that's why it is traditionally water cooled but to overkill levels considering the radiator being used to cool it and all of that is an additional $500 bucks.
It kinda stings when you add it all up and face the cost all at one time for high end cooling, but this has been and ongoing experiment for 5 years.
With zero regrets, even though there has been some money completely lost on experiments that failed to produce the desired results.
Just so you are 100% aware, OCN seriously frowns on any type of build this for me type posting, so I would not do that anyway.Edited by OCAddict - 10/19/17 at 3:45am
