I am a hardware geek, its one of my favorite subjects but the only thing I havent yet tried is Watercooling.
I have a 2500K@4.3Ghz with Scythe Mine Rev.B CPU cooler and 2 Gtx570 in SLI with Inno3D 3 fan coolers @ 850/2050, along with a top 120mm case fan and a side 120mm case fan. The rig makes a considerable amount of noise, specially while gaming. I´ve been thinking about building my first WC loop (cpu+gpu´s), not because I need more overclock but to reduce the overall noise.
- Do you guys know, by experience, if the noise will be greatly reduce if I decide to replace my air cooling with a water cooling kit?
Much of this really depends on what your idea of quiet is...this is pretty debatable as every person is going to have a little different opinion on this. Most of this will depend on what radiators you use and in turn, the fans for those radiators. A fan controller never hurts either.
