1: How easy hard/easy is it and what tools would I need?
2: Having my cpu WC on the rear, I have an Obsidian 650D, where would I put the fans. I guess in the top fan port. I assume that once I have the cards on water, the 200mm fan on top is less necessary.
3 Having said that, would the cpu fan be enough exhaust for the rest of the case?
4. I know about EK, any other suggestions for suppliers, perhaps any Aussie members can point me to local suppliers?
This thread is so massive, I thought I would just post this instead of going through them all. Some excellent looking results tho. Any help would be great, even point me to other threads etc. Cheers.
The block you choose will have instructions,just remember to use a non conductive TIM of bare dies and remember not to crank down to hard .
I tend to do the 4 screws around the die first then do the rest.
Remember to unscrew from the back plate as well,I always forget then wonder why the cooler has not come off......
Watercool currently have the best performing blocks for GPU's,I think they are the best looking too but that is subjective.
