i dont think ill ever air cool a computer again, idk... i guess its just not me.

Looks like you got everything all figured out, SB will be a nice improvement over what you got.

I was gonna sell my 1090t build but i decided to just keep it and use it for a rendering machine or something.
Nice man... Yeah I'm still stumped on whether to get the RX240.

Mainly, I don't have the cash, I've only got about $400 -- and the two EK Blocks, the EK FC bridge, the Links, and tubing and fittings comes out to $350.

I love watercooling, my temps will go up with a single RX360, but i'm guessing by about 6-9c

Which is fine by me, since that will work out to be 70c which is my max temp on my Q6600, and seeing how I can't go higher than 3.6GHz on this board, IDC.

Watercooling SB is kinda funny, but when I go SB, i'll have two GTX 470's my WCing and everything else like my PSU to bring to SB.

I just love water cooling this is my second build of WC, and no problems whatsoever. I load at about 60c so far. so that's good enough for me

How long till you can get a little extra money to just get the 240?

Like i said before though i would just get a GTX360 and run one rad this way you maintain better flow and someone quote me if im wrong but you should see about the same temps maybe better compared to a RX360 and a RX120 and close to the extra 240, which would be perfect for your setup.

It seems like you really do have you mind set on this extra rad though, Give it some time and when you get the extra cash and you still want it pull the trigger on it.

I like to have the best temps i can so my setup is a little over kill, Im running 3 RX360s for my 1090T rig below. And will be running 4 GTX360s on my 980X build when i put it together.

For what you have though your setup will be fine though you should be within all your temperature ranges especially with highspeed fans in P/P.

Maybe when you go SB you'll have the extra money to change your setup but to be honest i would just stick with what you got

Thanks dude.. will be about a month until i get more cash flow, so I will probably be going with that $350 setup I listed previously.

I'm about to hit the hay bro.

Goodnight
