why not just water cool the CPU and air cool the GPU(s). alot cleaner/cooler, less flex line, and
less to worry on malfunctions..
save up for custom loop.. just my
Well, air cooling is sort of out of the question considering how loud these can get, specially in a somewhat air-starved Design R4. If anything, the custom water loop would cause MORE worry on malfunctions. While surely a custom water loop would be better looking, I don't see the difference in cooling to be worth the $300+ investment over the $70 for the khulers and brackets. It is kinda silly talking like that considering the two cards I am getting, but still. I already have 1 setup with a single 680 and it has never broken 55C in ANY benchmark I have done or BF3 or anything. While, sure a custom water loop might bring that number down, is it worth the effort and cost and maintenance?
You got it right, though that it would look A WHOLE LOT BETTER, but I am not getting a window in this case, so its not like I will be able to see it.
Thanks for the info though! I might be able to fit them if I turn the rads on their sides - If I get the clearance on both sides, they are the same as a 120mm fan.Edited by Phishy714 - 10/21/12 at 4:24am
