If you're worried about if it will look silly or not with a single gpu, perhaps you could do something to draw the attention away from it? Like remove the hdd cages and build a scale model of your computer setup in there.

That does look like some nice tubing, bit more 'quality' looking than the XSPC stuff.

Don't be overwhelmed by all the sick build you see in here. Chances are, if you get into watercooling, you'll catch the ITUS soon enough. It's definitely worthwhile to watercool a CPU + 1GPU. 

 

Primochill Advanced LRT is recommended because it doesn't leech plasticizer. If you're gonna get soft tubing, it's best to go with either Advanced LRT or Black Norprene/Rubber/ZMT tubing. Alot of soft tubings start to degrade after a little bit and the platic they shed ends up clogging up your waterblocks and pumps. Advanced LRT and Norprene don't have this issue. It's not just about looks.

I caught the watercooling bug a while ago, just never bothered adding in my GPU as it was cool enough but I'm doing a new build soon so may as well add it in smile.gif

My only concern was that nearly all builds I see use atleast 2 GPUs...I wasn't sure if there was a reason for that as far as aesthetics go or if people just have plenty of money. A single GPU is enough for me at the moment. Adding a second gpu would be more money for the card, plus block, fittings etc

I appreciate the tubing isn't just for looks smile.gif would hope so too as it's twice the price of the stuff I'd usually use.

If it's worth it to cool just your CPU, then y wouldn't it be worth it to cool a single GPU as well? =)

 

It's not so much of a coincidence as it's the same type of people in this world that would want 2, 3, or 4 GPU's in their PC are the same people that are attracted to watercooling. People watercool whatever they have. If you want better temps/clocks on a piece of hardware, put it under water. Don't worry about any of the other aspects of it. Functionality of your PC should always come first. Worry about aesthtetics later....

Don't get me wrong, I'd love to put a couple of GPUs under water for looks. it would of course be cool, but for performance gain, I don't see it worth it personally (only a 1080p gamer)

But I'm planning to get a 780 Ti very soon. The single card performance is perfect for what I play, just didn't want it to look lonely by itself smile.gif

i cooled my gpus to keep the noise down when they(670 ftw-sli) rev-up. it started to sound like when i used to live in the flight path of JFK in Howard Beach, NY. the noise from the cards and my cpu air cooler was just to much for me to handle. i cooled my cpu first then the gpu's. two gpu's = twice as much jet noise. i don't game with headphones, so noise was an issue for me. now the most noise my comp will make is when the HDD's get to doing their thing. before my 670's i had gtx260-216 and those sounded like i was IN the engine of a plane. as a bonus to the noise, my gpu's rarely go over 42 degrees if i keep my ambient below 78.
post #58807 of 106076
Another reason most people wait til they have multi-gpu configurations to put them under water is because one card typically does fine on air. Once you add in a second card, airflow becomes more of an issue, and cards start to run much hotter, possibly leading to throttling.

I know that was the case for me, which is why I switched to a custom loop in the first place.

You're right...so you could also start to think about moving on from last decade's resolution. No major reason you have to stay " only a 1080P gamer" anymore; esp if you get a 780. I'd still be on 1200P if not for Korean. I sure don't have $500+ for a display. And hey more money for cooling gear! smile.gif

Who cares if it looks lonely. It'll perform better under water. If you really care about empty space, and only ever want one PCIE card, get an mitx board and mitx chassis. You'll save money, it'll be more portable, and there won't be loneliness.....until upgrade time comes around :p

^^^This. Exactly.

Assuming your pumps under the res under the midplate. I say pump routed to the top rad from behind the mobo. rad => cpu = gpu's => res => pump

Edit: oops almost missed the sexiest block =)

rad => vrm => cpu => PCH => GPU's => res => pump
