2600k/ GIGABYTE dream cooling setup

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
What is your dream liquid cooling setup for the SB 2600k/ GIGABYTE GA-P67A-UD7-B3 combo.

Reliability, quality components, compactness, minimal maintenance, silence are all considerations. Not necessarily the absolute most expensive stuff, but not looking to save a buck either. I did a bunch of research during my last two builds, but opted for air. This time, I might go liquid. I am very mechanically inclined, so installation is not an issue.

I am only running one GTX 260 . Should The RAM be cooled? Anything else?

Do I need a hardware monitor? Who makes the best stuff?



I am not planning on the most radical OC'ing of this rig, but would like it to be very reliable, thus, cool.


Thank you.

Ram will do just fine with a ram fan like this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835181008
i would recommend a fan controller to adjust the fan speeds so you can regulate the noise, i have this one and it does the job http://www.aquatuning.de/product_inf...----black.html

Go for an XSPC RX 360 kit from jab-tech, they are great. It's $189.99 and comes with the CPU block, rad, pump/res, radiator, fans, and all the screws and stuff. Also cooling the RAM is just a waste of money IMO, you're better off getting a new GPU or watercooling your 260.
