I'd like some suggestions!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Saw a few topics like this and I honestly need some good advice instead of some salesman trying to make a quick sale.

As of right now my 465 is unlocked to 470 which is nice however I'm still looking for that sweet spot for stability and I'm looking for cooling as well as a power supply. As far as cooling goes, I've never tried anything other than stock cooling before however the small amount of space in my case is a bit of an issue for the upgrade. I think the easiest way to go about this is to find what kind of cooling I want first before going onto buying a psu.

At the moment my computer is idling at about 40C and I can't currently play BC2 without crashing (Like to play with highest settings or not at all ). My price limit combined would be 350$ and if I got water cooling the main issue would be my lack of experience with it.

What would I do without Overclock? Well my computer would be on fire by now..
What??

okay if you have 350 to spend i highly recommend going water cooled; i can help you if you need it with set up but basically if you go watercooled you can option for fully built systems or custom systems; custom systems will be better in the long run if you upgrade

Here are some suggestions for a custom loop:
Water block for cpu

Reservoir pump combo (you can buy two of these if you want to watercool more stuff, like ram, gpu hdd etc.)

radiator

total cost about 251 (with one reservoir, 381 with two), with 100 dollars to spair for piping coolant and various fittings you will need

The Theramlright Spitfire is a popular recommendation, though it's huge. You're not going to have many options if you don't have space in your case.

Lol, he needs cooling components for his GPU, not CPU.
