If you're not planning on overvolting them or similar then I recommend keeping the ACX cooler unless you want to put them under water for the aesthetic look.
Wat r the temp diff between ACX and watercooling? Is it big???
I was thinking of benching my rig when built, so I was told to get best results, watercool everything and the performance will increase, I LOVE the aesthetics of having the whole rig under water, but I also LOVE how the ACX EVGAs look, U gotta love Black and gold....its so nice. and If I get Z87 Xpower with black and yellow contrast it would look pretty sweet imo esp with the fact that all MSI logos on mobo light up and the "X" logo in cpu block area throbs like a Heart beating...so if you see my links I posted earlier all 3 mobos are sooo good, but i just cant decide...
