Okay, I'm building a custom PC from Digital Storm and they have a variety of options. I did want to go with the Sub-Zero liquid Cooling for CPU + Crossfire Cards but I can't blow the $800+ right now, so I'm getting the Corsair CPU liquid cooling. I don't have any liquid cooling for my two ATI Radeon HD 6950 2GB's, but It has a very nice amount of air cooling, nice case design, etc. Please look at my setup and suggest if I should still OC my graphics cards, because I really want to get a maxed gaming performance (but I also don't want to overheat, damage, or waste them in any way).
For less than $600 you could build a great full watercooling loop that would perform much better. And the H60 isn't exactly what I would consider 'extreme cooling'...
+1. My loop would cost ~$600 new (rough estimate) and I'm running the exact same components listed in your build. My GPUs run at ~43C while gaming, and I hit 52C for the first time the other day because I had been running OC benchmarks for about an hour and everything started to get a bit hot.
ok, CPU,Case, SSD, MOBO... all seem to be fine and great deal.
but RAM, PSU ???? and what brand of HD 6950s ?
and the overall price seems to be very high too this rig. as you can collect that stuff from newegg @ $1900 maximum.
Agreed. This prebuilt is a bit expensive, and you don't even get brand name parts...
-HAF X 942
-RipJaws 8GB 1600
-Asus ati radeon hd 6950's in crossfire
-asus P8P67 MOBO
-Force GT Series 120GB SSD
-CoolerMaster Silent Pro 1000W PSU
-and im not sure the brand of the liquid cooling, my friend bought that stuff for me and put it together but it works extremely well.
