Im looking for a liquid cooler that can handle both a gtx 295 overclocked and a 955 oc, while keeping the load temps as low as possible. i want a reliable one that will show a huge increase over a corsair h50, and that has a good rep.

Also im going to build my own Ln2 pot, and i was wondering if anyone knows a supplier of copper tubes with a diameter of about 3 in. or more.

LN2 pots eh? http://kingpincooling.com/

@OP: Full specs? Going for World record?


Full specs in member config, and for the liquid cooler i am just looking for one to use for above average but still normal ocing, but the pot is going to be for much more intense oc'ing

When you make a jump to an LN2 pot, you are making a leap from everyday-usable to special occaision cooling and useage. Just remember that...LN2 isn't exactly user-friendly for surfing the web and ripping DVDs...

I know that ln2 isnt for normal use, thats why i said im looking to buy a separate water cooling kit for normal use.

^Are you going to go under LN2 on your main rig or something else? Be aware, that going under LN2 will most certainly kill stuff.

Basic set up for cooling CPU + GPU:

2x MCP655/aka D5
2x microres
1x 480 rad
1x 320 rad
GTZ, HK, or EK block for CPU (Note: Koolance 350xx is the best, but I don't personally like it). Swiftech also has a new block Apogee™ XT out, but I haven't seen any reliable testing yet by skeenee labs,etc so I can't say anything about it.
Swiftech Epsilon for GTX 295
Tygon or Primo Flex tubing

Do 2 different loops. One for CPU other for GPU

thanks for the info on the water cooling. And no, the LN2 is for a cheap new celeron which i want to overclock out of its mind, the water cooling is for my main rig. And is it better to buy those cooling supplies separately or buy a kit?

EDIT: also do any of you know a good waterblock to replace the stock cooler on my gtx 295?

^Buy separately, doubt you'll find kits with those specs. Conumdrum has the links for stores in his sticky.Shop around. Petras and jab seems to have the lowest prices imo, but it's worth checking others like frozencpu,etc as they may have tings on sale (for example frozen had the GTZ for like $40 during a sale). I did list a full cover block for your GTX295.

Hey yannifb. You'll be much happier if you spend a WEEK or more doing your homework before even deciding what blocks to buy. It's your stuff, once you get it all after spending ohh close to $450 and it's wrong or you smoke a mobo cuz you knew no better.

Seen it, don't want you to be it. Learn.
