Corsair 800D Cooling Help Request - Page 3

post #21 of 27
go w/ an xspc rasa kit, cheap and really great way to take the plunge
post #22 of 27
While my 800D is water cooled and I have to say It seems to love it a lot. The 800D CAN be air cooled just fine. I had a Ven-X with GT 1850's in push/pull and it was just fine with very nice temps. Also consider your ambient temps. But yeah if you can spare the extra money I'd definitely buy a Rasa WC kit. If not, air works fine too. Hope that helped.

I think you should have gone for a different case to be honest, if you're not watercooling you can buy cases that look good for less money than the 800D. It's pretty much top of the range.

And with regard to overclocking, it's really not that hard to get a reasonable overclock (and you don't need water to do it). To be honest if you are worried about overclocking, then you're definitely not ready to water cool!

For overclocking, luckily you're in the right place, as this forum even has it in the name

Have a read through some of the threads on overclocking, and make sure you understand what's going on etc first, then you can try small overclocks to start off with. Overclocking basically gives you something for almost nothing (at least monetarily). Free performance boost is always good

Mount a decent fan towards the back of the top fan slots, that'll allow your heatsink to take fresh air in from less than 2 inches away.

The CPU cooling by default is fine, what is lacking is GPU cooling, for that you'll need to replace the stock 140mm fan mounted in the PSU compartment.

Thanks, I mounted three 120's on the top as exhaust. I think I'm going to replace the stock 140's any suggestions?
