I have done some research and have conflicting reports on what I should do. I am currently running and FX-8350 on an Asus Crosshair V formula-z and I wanna water cool my system. I have heard that if I water cool the cpu I must cool the VRM / MOSFETs due to the fact that they become extremely hot on most amd boards so I was wondering what your guys opinion was.

My system runs fine on watercooling. 1.5 vcore too. If they do get too warm for comfort get a stronger rear exhaust fan and that will pull enough air over them.

I got a corsair 750D with a stock 140mm exhaust fan... its either I get the water block for the VRM / MOSFETs or the waterblock for my gtx 780

Well that's a hard decision. I know it's a tough choice that a lot of people have to.... waiiiit a second.

what do you mean? I assume you mean it should be an easy choice that I am just making more difficult and blowing out of proportion
