Assistance in Configuring a Water Loop for Bullet BH8
Hello, OCN. I have been enjoyed reading through build logs and seeing them all come to fruition. I specifically have really enjoyed the water cooling builds. I am amazed at the talent and skill some people have and I have learned enough to feel confident on how to do some of those builds. I am planning on upgrading the cooling in my case from air to water. Here are my specs, which I will be upgrading in the next couple of weeks.
#1 - Caselabs Bullet BH8
#2 - i7-7700 currently cooled by a Noctua NH-D15 (plan on upgrading to the 9900K in a few weeks; have a friend that would take the 7700 off my hands, which is why I justify the upgrade)
#3 - RTX 2080 (model ending in 2182)
#4 - 32GB RAM
#5 - 850W EVGA PSU
This is the first time I have purchased such a pricey card. I am amazed at how much heat it puts out. It gets up to 82 C when I have the cover on my BH8. I have taken the cover off just to get the heat to dissipate. That has helped, but I feel I could get that card cooler. Before I tell you what radiators I have looked at and the build I have in my mind, does anyone have any advice on such a move? I am willing to make the purchase and spend the time in setting this loop up right if there is encouragement to move in that direction. It is just one hot card and would like to just see it not get up into the 80s. Thank you for anyone who reads this and has any pointers I could take into consideration.
