Solved Aftermarket cooling Tags: Overclocking Cooling Components Last response: November 7, 2009 4:36 PM in Components Share Triton-00 November 7, 2009 3:49:52 PM i'm looking at doing some mid range overclocking on my corei5/p55/DDR3 1600 RAM/Core216 gtx260 SLI setup. i want to get some aftermarket cooling if it would increase the longevity of my components and be able to push them to higher clock speeds and overall perform better. does anybody have any reccomendations for me? is watercooling overpriced for what you get? is CPU/VGA/MoBo Chipset/Memory cooling much worth the money vs the stock coolers?

Not only are they more efficient but they are often much quieter too. Watercooling is fine if you dont mind the regular top ups required to the cooling loop - however the bigger worry is the chance of leaks. | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Components>Aftermarket cooling> Related ressources: ForumAftermarket cooling for GPU's ForumAftermarket Cooling Options ForumWill i need an aftermarket cooling system with this setup?
