What waterblock would you suggest for my asus 590. Or does the fact that it is an asus not matter?
My case is rather cramped (5 hard drives will do that to you), so I would be getting a new case as well, I am eying up the 800D, but can be swayed to anything if there is something better.....
comments, suggestions are welcome.
The reason I am doing this is I like to keep my components under 40 C at all times, and the current 590 hits 60's under load.....
Depending on the price of the koolance block, i would say either that or the EK block. Theres also the DD block coming out but im not sure on performance figures. Doesn't really matter that its an asus though. I've got an EK block otw for my classified, so i can let you know performance figures when im done with it. Will be running through a chipset, memory block and a gtx 470 though, so my temps might be a bit diff if you only watercool the 590 and your cpu. I would highly recommend it. Keeps things super cool and makes them last longer. I would also highly recommend the 800D. Such a sexy case with tons of potential. You can easily stick a GTX 360 rad in the top with no mods or a 480 with just a single extra 120mm cut which you could easily run your x6 and 590 through. There's soooo many people on here with one that have gorgeous looking water builds that you can look at for reference.
