this is a simple build as far as the water cooling goes, it is a single 360mm monstra radiator, cooling the CPU, and video card.
at stock speeds, this system runs cool, but I would like to avoid overclocking the hardware on this rig.

I am considering doing a upgrade to the water cooling as well, because I have to drain the system anyway to change out the CPU.

I have been considering, adding another 360mm monstra radiator to the water loop. this way I could clock the hardware a little at some point, without the system getting to hot.
