Cooling question for new hardware... Tags: Homebuilt Cooling Configuration Systems Last response: January 5, 2008 4:00 AM in Systems Share rangerreeve January 3, 2008 8:17:11 PM I'm looking for some cooling advice for my newest system. The case is still up in the air atm(prob an 830). 780i mobo.....8800GT's in SLI...2 G of Corsair RAM... and a 3.0 Ghz CPU with soundcard. I won't be Ocing this system currently. Can this config be effectively air cooled or am I getting too close to the point of needing water cooling to play the latest games on high settings? If you have practical exp with a similar config i'd appreciate some opinions.

I assume by 830 you mean Coolermaster Stacker which is nice... i would also suggest Antec 900, thermaltake Armour and Lian li A10 and A70 would also do the job nicely. rangerreeve January 4, 2008 6:34:27 AM Thanks...appreciate it.

I like my case, Silverstone Temjin TJ09. It cools the graphics cards on air very well, and has plenty of room to add water cooling if I ever decide to. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
