Water cooling vs Vapor-X

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I currently have a Sapphire Vapor-X card, and am looking into putting a WC setup in my PC. I want to add one to the CPU, and maybe the NB, but is it worth replacing the Vapor chamber on the Sapphire?

Not really, unless you want it to be slightly quieter or you want to oc a little bit higher. And water cooling the north bridge is mostly for show. Not really worth it these days. Stick with water cooling your cpu and you will be good

I don't think the Vapor-X is a reference card. So I doubt you would be able to get a waterblock to fit on it.

My NB usually feels hot to the touch, so I wasn't sure if it needed aftermarket cooling.

Ya it's not reference, but 59C @ load seems to be plenty fine for me. I work at a repair shop, and am a college employee(while taking classes) so I could probably use the shop to make some custom WC parts.

That is because your card is warming up the n/b & s/b on the board. It does it on mine also as i'm going to put a gpu block on it and call it a day.
