Noob question. Does the MSI H81M-P33 motherboard support liquid cooling? eBay India states no.

Hello I just wanted to ask that, does the MSI H81M-P33 motherboard support liquid cooling? I don't have any clues for any liquid cooling stuff. On the eBay India site it states that water cooling isn't supported. I want to use it to overclock a Pentium G3258.

Also do you know of any other cheap mobos which are capable of overclocking the above mentioned CPU?

    MSI H81M-P33 suport liquid cooling(water cooling) for sure.

    Like this picture,MSI H81M-P33 with CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i.


    By the way,If you want overclock G3258,I would go MSI Z97 PC MATE.have more power phase and design,good for overclock.
    Motherboard: MSI Z97 PC MATE ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($99.78 @ OutletPC)
    Total: $99.78
    Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available

  2. Liquid cooling is typically about the socket, ie which processors the motherboard supports, so if the liquid cooling solution in question supports the processor you want to cool, and you have an appropriate motherboard for that processor, you should be able to do it.

    Having said that, a full on liquid cooled rig is total overkill for a processor such as the G3248 - you'd have to be a bit crazy to do it that way. You might conisder a close loop liquid cooler like the Corsair H80i, but even that would be overkill - I would recommend the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo. It's all you need.
  3. I'm on a tight budget of 800$ so i'm looking for the corsair H60.
  4. @PIEapple: I can't buy the Z97 considering my tight budget.
    I'll post my parts list soon.
