HEy guys so i have been using my amd fx 8350 with an H80 water cooler, the CPU is oced to 4.5ghz. Yesterday i highered it to 4.7ghz which most people with this CPU have OCed it to but my temps are hitting 61 to 62 degrees. I have some money to waste so was wondering what cooler would i use other then the H80 which is not good enough. Please do not suggestt he noctua since it does not fit. Would the h100 be a good alternative? I would love to buy a custome water loop but i have no clue how to build one, if there is a kit out there with everything i need to build a custom water cooler then that would be great, preferablly from NEWEGG.

My rig:
AMD fx 8350 Oced to 4.7ghz
H80 Water cooler
gigabite 990-fx-ud3
2X EVGA GTX 670 FTW SLI
120gb SSD
1TB HDD
8gb vengence ram
750 watt EVGA Bronze PSU
8 case fans
Windows 8

there are water cooling kits, the actually pump res rad, etc. that you can buy, frozencpu.com has some looks pretty easy that is what I am looking into doing, I have a ECO c240 and my temps aren't the best either which is almost the h100.

Can you suggest a kit from me from that website. Im new to custom water loops and have no experience with them. Thanks

what case do you have?

I was just looking into this yesterday, and I found this kit from XSPC that is supposed to be great for the price: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ca2toIGW_m0

it can be bought for $150, with a 240mm rad, or you can get the 280mm rad for $20 more. The only thing you need to buy is the actual coolant/liquid.

To tell you the truth i have no clue what model it is. I got it as a gift, someone bought me a comp from IBUYPOWER which was complete shit so i just gutted the comp, took all the internals out and replaced them.

Just to be on the safe side how big a normal full tower, i can measure it to see.

Does this kit seem alright?

lol i was just going to post that one I had to get my starving almost 7 month old some food he wasn't happy with daddy... that is the kit I was looking at as well but with the 360 rad, still that one should do the trick. here is Azza's website, might help you know which case you have incase you have any issues in the future for clearance :)

score, that should be fine, if not add another rad which is nice with these setups, unlike closed loops

My case is old and is not showing up on their site. Any other way to find out if its a mid tower or full tower. It has 3 empty CD/DVD rom bays and 1 CD/DVD rom bay being used. And i think it has 4 harddrive bays.

Thats the pic of my case.

yea the 240mm should be fine, although there are a good bit of choices. I would look over all of them before buying. I like the EX360, and the RX240 (that double thick rad looks bad ***).

Or you could look at the Corsair H110. It is a beast cooler at 240mm for the radiator. http://goo.gl/PbPbAS

I think $150 for a open loop build, is much better then a closed-loop build. You have so many options with the open loop build, that it is ridiculous. Also most reviews that i have read show that the h100 does not cool much better then the h80, so i doubt the h110 will do that much better.

You could measure the mounting holes too, make sure that nothing would touch the mobo.


Yeah i have a mid tower. WOuld the XSPC fit my tower?


the 240mm might fit (the $150), but you should measure the mounting holes first.

h110 is two 140mm (280mm rad)
that mid tower posted has room for 2 120mm fans so you should be able to fit the thin rad with 2 fans in push or pull

What if i use the smaller radioators and attach it to the back of the comp. Would that work?

Best solution

the 120 would work in place of most 140 have the holes for the 120mm fans, just make sure you can run the tubes into the case

The xspc comes with four brackets to mount the rad on the out side of the case I latterly just bought XSPC Raystorm 750 EX420 I have a AzzA genuses 9000 full tower it can support 1 480mm rad (top), 1 240mm rad (bottom), & a 120mm rad (side) at first u just mounted the 420mm rad on the outside but I wanted it hidden so I put it inside (had to drill holes though) mistake on my part should have left it outside I have fx8350 overclocked to 4.6 with the rad outside it idles at 30c max 55c with full load on prime95 with it inside it idles at 40c and max 62c with prime95 so I'm going to be putting back on the outside
