I am using a Intel BXTS13X for my CPU and was wandering if I should water cool my card using a custom loop. I would just go with air cooling, but I am making a case desk and it make's it harder to air cool. Here is my build:



Intel Core i7-4930K

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-2133C10Q-16GXM

Intel BXTS13X Water/Liquid Cooling Thermal Solution for Socket LGA1150/ LGA2011 / LGA1366 / LGA1156 / LGA1155

EVGA SuperClocked w/ ACX Cooling 02G-P4-2774-KR G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 770

CORSAIR CX series CX500 500W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

GIGABYTE GA-X79-UP4 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

ntel 530 Series SSDSC2BW120A401 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) – OEM

If it makes any difference this is a Hackintosh

Since your making a case desk and presume you won't have a open mesh like a cooler master HAF X, you are best off water cooling your GPU and yes it would be better if you could build your own loop.
