So I'v built alot of PCs in the past. But I have never gone watercooled. I was always fascinated by it and I though it looked like pure 5eX.
But I was put off by the price - and the amount of time/effort it took to do it.
Recently I decided to get myself a cheap back-up rig.
And I was just offered a:
CPU: Amd 5400+
Mobo: Asus Crosshair
RAM: 2x1 gb 667mhz RAM
and a CPU waterblock - dtek fuzion v2
all up $70 shipped
And with this I decided to go watercooling. I already have a xfx 4850 on the way.
So I will be looking at watercooling a xfx 4850 and an amd 5400+
Nothing fancy - but just enough to give me a taste of watercooling for future builds
I am looking for something silent/and something that looks good
Considering the low spec parts - I want a relatively cheap watercooling job
What parts will I need? Can I get away with one loop? And what cheap yet cheerful case can I get?
I am looking at getting a cheap 4850 waterblock from Microcentre
p.s. some watercooling places seem to be having some sort of sale - would't mind jumping on those
