  1. Ok, you feel that you need water cooling to overclock a Q9450 to 3.6 GHz? That can be easily covered by aircooling, hell a high end one could be overkill.

    Do you plan to water cool those GPUs?
  2. i want to install water cooling system mostly for the GPUs because they get HOT.

  4. For the three GPU,s you would most likely need a triple radiator and FC/fullcover
    waterblocks as dpending on how close they are together a separate waterblock with
    ram/mosfet heatsinks may not fit.

    If you include the CPU probably a triple radiator and a dual radiator would be
    best. Maybe a dual loop set up as well.
  5. the problam is that i can not find a FC/fullcover water block for GTX 260 so i'll go with gpu water block and ram/mosfet heatsinks. you saying that triple radiator will be good for 3 GPU and CPU?

    Here are some for the 260,s.

    A triple for all of that will work but your temps wont be all that great
    probably, the video cards would be much cooler than stock cooling though.
  7. is this a good company?
  8. Yeah it should be, their CPU coolers are REAL popular and good.
  9. thanks a lot man!
  10. one more question does this block work with 260 55nm?
  11. Hmm, not sure they are compatible with reference PCB,s only.
    Not sure if the 55nm is the same or not.

    I,ll check and get back with ya.
  12. thank you
  13. thank for your help man!
