More about : water cooling

If you are going water cooling do not get an h60. Get an h100i and mount it to the top of your case for the budget and the components you have an h60 is a waste. There are better air coolers out then the H60

It an all in one system meaning you dont have to connect anything except the radiator to the case and the water block to the cpu. But seriously get the h100i over the h60 its way better

Every things looks good but one think i looked at the moniter you choose and noticed it has a 5ms responce time. With a responce time that high some people notice micro stuttter in the image even with a constant 60fps. Try find a moniter with a 1ms responce time to completely avoid this and have a crisp 60 fps image displayed

Do you think my system is capable of going 60+ fps at 1980x1080 p on games like bf4 arma 3 and dayz?
